We recommend the Elementum as one of the best budget knives you can EDC, and judging by its popularity with knife enthusiasts, the community seems to agree. Its sized just right with a 2.96“ drop point blade in a capable D2 tool steel, with a quick rear flipper deployment and reliable liner lock. The G10 scale adds just the right amount of grip resulting in a balanced, functional knife that fits the minimalist aesthetic while still delivering on performance and value. The Elementum was awarded Blade Show 2021's Best Buy of the Year, adding even more to its legacy as an everyday carry knife.

(Editor's note: We awarded its button-lock successor as Best EDC Knife at this year's SHOT Show, so head over to our coverage to check it out!)
