In my recent EDC pocket dump, I mentioned that earlier this year I started carrying the Smith & Wesson SWFR2S Extreme Ops knife as my everyday pocket folder. I've had one for years which I keep in the glove compartment of my vehicle. I purchased a second one when I decided to use it as my EDC knife.
This relatively inexpensive knife (about $24 on Amazon as of Dec. 12, 2021) has proved itself more than adequate for the job as my EDC knife. Sharp right out-of-the-box, big enough to handle most tasks, and tough, I am very satisfied with this knife. I would (and actually have twice now) rate it 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
