I won't comment on the Rhino as an EDC...everyone has their preferences.
But I've had years of daily use from 12C27 and 154CM. First off, geometry and heat treat is more important than choice of steel. With that said, I've carried a Grip as EDC for a few years. When I first purchased it, I convexed and thinned out the edge. I find it to excell in every aspect I would expect from a pocket folder. It takes and holds a wicked edge, and is extremely rust and scratch resistant.
As to 12C27...my most used kitchen knife(or any other knife for that matter) is a BRK Kitchen Petty. It has been in daily service for over 3yrs. It doesn't have a hint of patina or a single scratch on it!! And it's really easy to hone the edge back to scary sharp.
I've also used a 12C27 J. Marttinni fillet knife for over a decade...it has processed literally over a thousand pan fish. It also takes and holds a wicked edge, and doesn't have a spot or scratch on it!!
My question to you is...What are your expectations for your next purchase??
