From the M390 blade and Titanium frame to swappable overlays and great build quality, Vero Engineering’s Synapse has got a ton of things going right for it. I highly recommend picking one of these up if you’re looking to get a knife that features a unique design in a medium-sized package.

REVIEW: CRKT Offbeat™ II EDC Knife

CRKT has some of the most affordable folding knives on the market. The Offbeat™ II is the nylon handled version of its all stainless steel cousin (aptly named just: Offbeat™).

It’s on the larger side for everyday carry purposes, but is a good option for anyone looking for a beefy folder with speedy blade action.

REVIEW: Benchmade Bugout – The Essential Lightweight EDC Folder
