Jeff, who cryptically says he works in government, allows as how “If I were on a trip and I only had one EDC to choose from, this one would be it. Simple, reliable and is an easy carry.” See it all at Everyday Carry . . .

    • The Harpy is one odd looking knife. How well does that blade work for you?

      My EDC is a Spyderco Endura 4 Lightweight with the ZDP-189 blade.

      • The Harpy works very well for me so far, I bought it originally for defensive carry, hoping that very aggressive profile might cause an attacker to reconsider pressing the attack. Haven’t (yet, hopefully *never* will) pulled it for defensive use.

        For those (few) who have never seen one:

        (Years back I owned a Civilian, it looks flat *mean*)

        • I saw a mention of the Civilian in one of the Hannibal Lecter books, looked it up, and decided I had to have one. Tracked down a carbon fiber version, and it’s one of my favorite safe queens. If an attacker continues when one of those is presented, they are determined. Luckily, the design is more than capable of dissuading even the most determined attacker. I’ve got meaner looking blades, but they won’t fit in a pocket.

  1. I’d want a bob tail 1911 or at least a bit rounded for EDC. I can see that sharp angle digging in to my side or at least wearing a hole in my shirt. I love the 1911 in most of it’s forms and I own several but I ain’t EDC’ing one unless I have to. Too many other modern options that make more sense.
