When people think of versatile knives, they often think of folders. But what if I told you one of the most functional and useful everyday carry tools out there was a fixed blade push dagger? Well, the latest Badass Knife of the Week is here to make its case.

The Cold Steel Urban Edge is a surprisingly versatile and excellent all-around everyday carry tool. While the push dagger has its roots as a defensive weapon, it serves a function well beyond self-defense purposes.

The blade of the Urban Edge is only 2.5 inches. This version features one side with a plain edge and another side with a serrated edge. A different edge on each side gives you the best of both worlds — allowing you to cleanly cut a box with one side and cut some rope with the other.

Made from Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel, the blade is resistant to corrosion and easy to sharpen.

Designed to be held between the index and middle fingers, the grippy handle is made from Kray-Ex. Holding the knife may feel different at first but quickly becomes second nature when doing everyday tasks.

Coming in at an overall length of only 4 inches, the Urban Edge is a small knife that weighs less than 2 ounces. This makes it easy to carry anywhere you go. The Secure-Ex neck sheath gives you several carrying options as well — whether it’s attached to a belt or hanging around your neck.
