It's great to have the perfect survival knife, but most of the time they're overkill for everyday use. Outside put together a list of the best knives for everyday carry. Whether you're backpacking on the Pacific Coast Trail, rafting the Arkansas River or just getting things done around the house, these knives have got you covered. Outside gear testers put these knives through the ringer and came up with a top five. Gerber's GDC Tech Skin Pocket Knife conquered Outside's tests without a hiccup. The Tech Skin consistently shined in the cutting tests, holding its edge well cutting through everything from envelopes to speaker wire. Despite coming in at a third of the price of the other knives in the test, Gerber's Tech Skin certainly held its own.
