EDC Folders for Self-Defense? – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 285

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (episode 285), Bob “The Knife Junkie” DeMarco looks at EDC folders and asks the question, “Would EDC folders be good for self-defense?” Be sure to check out the show notes at https://www.theknifejunkie.com/285 for the list of knives talked about on this episode.

Bob starts the show with his “pocket check” of knives, and breaking multiple Knife Junkie “rules of carry” — the Off-Grid Rhino V2 and the Off-Grid Baby Rhino — while in Knife Life News, Spartan Blades kicks off 2022 with a fixed blade Moros. (Off-Grid Knives affiliate link)

And in his “State of the Collection,” Bob looks gets his first Two Sun Knife — the TS 301 — and shows off both the Off-Grid Knives Cleaver V2 and the Off-Grid Knives Raptor.
