I have a new addition suggestion.
edc stands for everyday carry. But whar about:
edc2 or edcc - everyday carry capability.
I have used the term in my post on how to make the edc pouch for edc2. See in the pouches sub-forum. If you carry several toolbits for example your ability to do more is so much better than just the standard tool.

Ok, my boredom got the best of me as I'm still fairly new to this forum and searching for ideas. It brought me to this thread and I now know way too much about EWCM (just the first view on a google search no more), dilligaf and many other cool/ strange acronyms. I also have one I learned on a trip I took a couple of weeks ago thanks to a friend, SFI (simple effing instruction). Could be used I guess when trying to relate to others that cannot follow SFI.

That could be true... Though Leatherman's website says 'pocket'...

http://www.leatherman.com/about/history:
Quote
Since 1983, we've been making tools that can endure just about anything and come back to work tomorrow. When Tim Leatherman and his business partner Steve Berliner started the company with the Pocket Survival Tool (PST) they had no idea that someday they would have more than 30 models and a full 90,000 square-foot facility here in Portland, Oregon with more than 400 employees. Here's a look at all the Leatherman tools past and present.

ALOX refers to aluminium scales used on 93mm Swiss Army Knives (SAKs) like the one in the picture here. They can be anodized in different colors.

I was under the impression alox stands for Aluminum Oxide, but remember being told differently by a member on the forum. Cant remember who.

I need to know the truth. Someone please tell me.  :poh:
