Maybe mags can make a #3 and send #2 to me for proper disposal.  :whistle:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I EDC my '99 Soldier.
But where this topic was made, it was only like 10 years old.  :D

Mechy, do you EDC anything rare?
I sometimes carry my 1950 Soldier.
84mm Golfer and Climber too.

Ribbed Cadet.

Uhm...

Might forget one here.

Buy now or regret later

Other than the Swiss shArK there are some other I carry and use regularly: the red OC First Mate and the green (OD) SwissBianco Carver. And of course the MTo Pioneer X!

But the one rare SAK that I truly EDC is the green (OD) alox Vagabond!

As you can see in the pics I added to the previous post: the green unfortunately doesn’t look as new as yours anymore :)

I have no idea what's rare and what's not  :dunno: Here's some that I carry that might be...

Wenger brushed stainless Traveler
Wenger brushed stainless Pocket Tool Chest
SwissBuck Sidekick
Original Outdoorsman
Climber Small
Salesman
Voyager Lite

I also have a factory made buffalo horn Huntsman, and a 1996 British Olympic team Spartan. I have offered them up for sale in the past, but they didn't sell at the price I thought they were worth, so I'm planning on making those two users too.

Ha, it took me a minute to realize how old the topic was. I saw my name as author and thought, "I didn't post that  :think:"

Then I realized I did, it's just been awhile  :whistle:

Well there is the 1950's Drawer :)

Can I get some information on this cabinet? I would love to have something like this, but I don't know where to begin searching! My father has a giant map cabinet, but it's pretty unrefined...

I don't know what jaydar's cabinet is. Anytime I see a wooden cabinet like that, I'm reminded of Gerstner tool boxes. If you're in the US, those may be worth looking into as an alternative.

I have a few unique (in the true meaning of the word ie 1 of 1) prototype MTs, and quite a few that are very rare indeed (only single digit numbers known in the MTo realm), but I wouldn't EDC any of them.

It's not just because of their rarity and fear of losing them (although that is a serious concern with any rare object).  Some are simply unfinished/incomplete, others aren't very usable as development hadn't been finished when they were made (that is the nature of prototypes and proof-of-concept objects).

Vic Voyageur was my EDC for about 5 years before starting a new job where blades are a big No-no so I had to swap it out for a Jetsetter on weekdays.

Weekend carry is a rotation between the Pioneer X (heavy use days), Compact (normal use days) and the Voyageur for special occasions/dressed up carry.

-Wes.

Work EDC: Vic 8GB Jetsetter/Swisscard/Olight I1R EOS/Gerber Mullet

Weekend EDC: Vic Voyageur or Compact or Pioneer X/LM P4/Fenix E01/Swisscard/Atwood R25

Neatest items in collection: Full Wenger Titanium Series, Vic Voyaguer, 84mm Golfer, Several Atwoods.

These days I focus on 84mm with Scissors, 74mm with interesting scales, and bladeless versions of SAKs so I can carry them at work.

I carry from time to time a Swissbianco microfarmer silver alox and a first release black farmer, standard models that I carry are economy lumberjack, GAK 2, VW Spartan. So some rare and some just hard to find.

My EDC SAK is a black Electrician.  It's not a rare model, but it is an uncommon colour variation.  Most of the other SAKs that I carry regularly are either mods I built myself or have at least had new scales fitted.  None are stock. 8)
