EDC knives are generally on the small to medium size, but the Carter 2quared is looking to change this idea with a beefy blade and long controllable handle. Co-designed by Robert Carter, this knife may sound like a huge tool with its overall length of 8.4", but most of this length comes from the knife's handle. The elongated titanium handle allows the user to easily control the blade with their whole hand and is curved and cut for an ergonomic feel. A large finger choil is also featured on the Carter 2quared, which helps guard users against slipping onto the blade.

The actual blade of the knife measures in at 3.6" and is comprised of D2 tool steel. A sheepsfoot shape and hollow grind makes it perfect for general utility tasks, as well as poking and piercing. Unlike most sheepsfoot-style blades, the Carter 2quared uses a slightly curved belly, making it ideal for slicing and chopping. The action of the knife is controlled by a low-index flipper tab and the closing is held in place with a secure frame lock.
