The MKC X Fieldcraft Survival EDC Knife was designed by Master Bladesmith Josh Smith and survival experts Mike Glover and Kevin Estela. Over a year of research and development went into this blade. This knife was designed to be the ultimate EDC (Every Day Carry) blade. It can be easily concealed for self-defense or carried on your pack or waistband for bushcraft-style use.

As previously mentioned, this knife is designed to be an EDC blade. It can be carried inside the pocket of most pants with just the end of the handle exposed. This knife can be carried on either side of the body for utility or defense. It is small enough to be carried every day but also large enough to be a real tool that can be used harder than the folding knife in your pocket. The blade steel is CPM 154, a proven workhorse, and the design is heavily inspired by spearpoint blades used from various makers in the bushcraft realm.

The Fieldcraft EDC knife also has bird and trout vibes, and those familiar with the MKC line will see clear similarities in the handle design and construction of our other hunting knives. Josh and Kevin wanted to provide a blade design that works well for many different applications and a construction style that would hold up to actual use. Whether you are using this knife in the field while fishing and hunting or carrying it with self defense in mind, you can be sure this knife will stand up to the toughest tasks.

It’s important to Josh and Kevin that we provide tools that can be used in various ways. Even though this knife was designed with self defense and concealment in mind, we also know that it’s incredibly rare that this knife will be needed for that. We also wanted to make a blade that could be useful in the field, around home, or at work.

Awesome knife, sheath is meh

As others have said, the knife is excellent, well balanced and fits your hand more as an extension rather than a held object. I can appreciate the time to develop and execute this design. Overall all excellent blade.

Now the meh part, it has been cumbersome to resheath this knife at times. If I don't ride the spine, it's impossible to fully seat this knife without "shaving" kydex out of the interior of the sheath. The knife is still plenty sharp, but I worry about the edge hitting the kydex 90% of the time I resheath the knife.

Easy to carry everyday. Holster and clip are essential and make this a secure EDC knife that can be drawn easily but secure enough that it will not fall out or off ever. Blade tip is thick and will not give. Noticeable thickness compared to other MKC knives. Very happy with the purchase. This will be my go-to for years to come… then it will be my daughter’s!
