I normally carry an Emerson or Benchmade folder, mainly in a defensive role, and don't use them for much EDC work. I also carry a Leatherman tool of some form and use that for daily cutting, prying, etc. Any knife with decent materials will easily handle most normal EDC duties without issue. I've put some Emersons, BM's and CRKT's through some seriously harsh work and aside from some edge damage, all was well.
