Another EDC Brand Just Made an Awesome Fixed-Blade Knife
The concept of everyday carry isn’t new — the term is straightforward, alluding to the stuff you want in your pockets or backpack all the time — but only in recent years has it been elevated to a culture based on a handful of key items. When pocket knives are referred to as EDC, they’re almost always the folding kind, but some of the young brands that built themselves on the EDC category are now arguing that fixed-blade knives also deserve your everyday consideration. Quiet Carry is the latest among them, and its new fixed-blade knife is called The Current.
Many fixed-blade knives come with a specific purpose — filleting a freshly caught fish, hacking through dense vegetation — buy Quiet Carry aims for versatility with its take on the category. The Current is 7.23 inches long with a 3-inch blade; that’s small by most standards, but still in line with what you might expect from a folding knife. Quiet Carry gave the drop-point blade a deep shape with a full belly, almost like a compact chef’s knife. Much like The James Brand’s recent Hell Gap (the first fixed blade for that company, too), the Current will likely find lots of use at campsites for shelter and fire construction as well as meal prep, but it’ll come in handy in any situation that calls for something more robust than a folder.
Quiet Carry recently debuted the Current on Kickstarter for $169 in a short campaign that raised over $30,000, but you can be on the lookout for more availability on the brand’s website soon.
