I like the mighty Spork! I got to say they are great and I cant believe how much I carry mine at work! It was the best 3$ I ever spent!


I agree! Mine was 2 bucks at a shop we stopped in at once on an out of town bike trip. I had seen them before, but had not purchased one. For 2 dollars I couldn't resist. I have used it many times, and I really like it.

I admit that it is a compulsion and not necessarily... uhm... 100% necessary... to walk around with all of that. I could leave some of the tools in the truck (I used to have a truck based full tool set for the job), but I find it easier just to walk in with whatever I may need on a job site or estimate. I am not asked to do any real involved install work anymore, just little tweaks and such.

I could ditch the "entertainment value" items, but I sat and rolled dice while waiting on a client just this past Wednesday, and I was almost sad when he arrived. It was pleasant to sit in the lobby and be ignored for a while without being bored.

The survival kit is the hardest stuff for me to ditch though, and while it really sees no daily use, it is the portion of my kit that tends to swell out of proportion to necessity if I allow it. I just can't shake the "what if" conversation in my head. If I dropped it out of the bag, that would be the day I get stranded out in the middle of nowhere somehow. That's how it goes in my addled brain anyway.

Things like the TP and the electronics are absolutely necessary.. I travel around for the job a lot, and music.. email... phone... GPS... and wipe... are things I could not do well without.

Honestly, I have found that when I remove all of the stuff I probably don't truly need, I still am left with far too much to pocket and belt carry comfortably. So a bag is needed even for the truly ED items. It all fits compactly into the bag and I have it on my shoulder anyway, so why not add some fun items and some OCD stuff to calm and pacify my preparedness urge?

 :D

I think the Jumbo is great, but too big even for me to EDC. If I buy a bigger bag so that I have space for daily incidentals and things I may pick up, I just wind up steadily filling it up over time. The Fatboy has just enough real estate to keep me happy, but also restrained.

The Smith's sharpener is great for the size, price, etc. But it truly is no substitute for a proper stone. Nice to have though when your blade slips and you flatten the edge. I did that the other day and the Smith's thingy had me back to sharp right there on the spot. That was nice.


You guys have me EDCing more of my small tools daily than I did before coming here though. This has been a good thing as I have needed them recently a lot more often, but... you are still a bunch of smurfs.  :D

I argee.  I have the same pocket sharpener and it's fantastic for "on-the-go" sharpening.  

I just noticed that my bag is almost identical to yours but mine's all black.  :tu:  (I'll have to post pics soon.)

I thought that one was pretty obvious... read it out loud to yourself, but not too loud if you are at the office!  :ahhh

Is that the response you got when you read it aloud?  :D

Lame joke I know, but there's a story behind it.... not much of one- one of those "you had to be there" things.  An inmate needed to go to the hospital after a short "discussion" with another inmate, and he was a bit lightheaded from the experience.  While waiting for the paramedics we started to administer first aid and the inmate, in a shocking moment of clarity asked if that was the kit used for guys who were "all fakked ap?"

Nothing like a good head injury to help them see the light though- at least temporarily.

One screw I used to work with once told an inmate that he (the inmate) was so stupid, no wonder they caught him.  :D

Here is my keyring EDC.  Slightly old pic as the SAK is now a Rambler most of the time.


Also my Altoids kit I made up not long ago.


I carry a lot more junk gear in my bag but I'll need to nick my wife's camera to get a shot of it.

Ok, here is what I EDC.  I have only included what I have on me all the time, not stuff that I have in my coat as well.  So here is what I have in my pockets.



In there is;

-Leatherman Knifeless Fuse - All tools lock but no blades so I can carry it at work.
-Victorinox Stag Safari Hunter - Has pretty much everything "sharp" on it that the Fuse doesn't have, so it is removed before I go into work.  Has small screwdriver in corkscrew.
-Large Sack-up - Stops my Safari Hunter getting full up with crap whilst it sits in my car.
-CRK Small Regular Sebenza - Is put on the side before I leave the house (sadly).  Is often swapped out for any of my other folders.
-Victorinox "Scholar" SAK - Modified by Neil (NKB).  It has no blades so can be carried at work and has a toothpick.
-58mm SAK sheath - Houses the Scholar and prevents anyone panicing if for any reason it slips out of my pocket.
-Motorolla Z8
-Fisher Space Pen - Fitted with black refill, so together with the Scholar I have 2 different colours.
-Atwood FunnyBone - Good tool to twin with pliers.
-Imco Triplex Lighter
-Fenix L2D Q5 - Left in high setting for blinding and far distance use.  Uses Eneloop batteries.
-ChapStick.
-Suunto Advisor - Has compass, altimeter, Barometer and is as tough as nails.
-Car keys.
-Damascus fob.
-Jetscream Whistle.
-Atwood Flat GasBaby - Nice and light for keyring carry and works well with the FunnyBone.
-Keysergeant.
-Uncle Bills Sliver Gripper - Great tweezers that were needed as Scholar had the toothpick.
-ARC-AAA Premium - Fitted with lithium battery which is brighter and lighter.  Has a good low beam so works well with the Fenix.
-House keys.
-Swisstech Utilikey - The only sharp thing I take to work.
-ResQMe.
-Sosakonline.com carabiner - handy to have and promotes the site.

This set up is working damn well.  :tu:



 

I'm back!!

So if you want to get into a bottle of beer how long does it take to decide which opener to use?  :P ;)

Seriously though that is an impressive amount of very nice stuff.

That is very annoyingly the only tool I have duplication of (apart from PE blades but I like the idea of having 2).  I suppose if I ever wanted myself and 4 of my mates to open a beer all at the same time I'm ready.  :D

I'm back!!
