Every collector, at some point or another, has caught themselves staring longingly at a Trevor Burger custom knife. There is just something about the overall aesthetic, and clean, sweeping lines that make his creations both utilitarian and elegant at the same time. That is precisely why we knew we needed to team up with Trevor to bring you the latest in the Urban EDC production line - the Urban EDC Light Compact (LC).
Forgoing trends and firmly focused on a less is more approach, the Urban EDC LC is a model of finely-tuned function and form. The M390 blade with a classic drop point shape is deployed with a beautiful thwack, thanks to the washer/bearing combination, and the perfectly tuned detent (which is extra important on a front flipper). It is then held in place thanks to the rock-solid, titanium frame lock.
The milled titanium or micarta handles offer weight reduction, as well as everlasting toughness. Staying true to elements of Trevor's designs, 2 of the 3 available models feature black micarta inlays that raise the overall luxury factor of this design.
If you're looking for a clean, classic frame lock front flipper that's equal parts high-performance slicer and bonafide work of art, the Urban EDC LC offers up decades of skill and experience channeled into an heirloom-quality production tool that can be passed down from one generation to the next.
