Thanks to you enablers, just in the last few months my collection has grown. Started out with a Super Tinker and a PST II. I now have 8 Leatherman tools and 6 Swiss Army Knives just in the last 5 months! So I bought at a flea market an old metal box with clear plastic drawers - the kind used to organize nuts and bolts and various electrical components. Room enough in there for 16 LM's and SAK' s in individual drawers or some doubles. The box sits on a shelf in my wardrobe.

But some will linger on my nightstand.

Now I can go to it every morning and decide what to carry, like Batman picking out his equipment for a particular mission - or a radio DJ  making some musical selections for the program. Or a librarian choosing the best reading for the book of the month...Or...or like a guy with a tool addiction

Sounds like you are off to a good start   :D

When I started, everything had a place and everything in its' place. Now, most of the furniture is covered with MTs, knives, lights and tools. I keep promising to get it all sorted, but that will likely happen after I appear on the hoarders TV show.

J/K about hoarders, but I need to get a system in place before I go nuts. Bought a small cabinet last week and will post pics when it is organized. It should be big enough for the Leatherman, Gerber, SOG, and Victorinox stuff. :)

I still have several tools and lights on 3 tables.  Wait make that 4 tables  :whistle:.  Meanwhile my 84mm Tinker and Squirt P4 remain in their sheath always ready to go.  Most of what I have sitting on the tables are fiddle factor.  I'm currently looking at 10 lights, 8 SAKs, 10 MTs, 3 fixed blades, LM Tread, several Eneloops, a couple pry bars, and thats just a rough count.   

Not much has really changed even tho I minimized my carry.  I just like having it out in the open.

I know what you mean! I keep a box of 20+ MTs on the end of the sofa. :rofl:

My secret bedroom drawer of SAKs (and a few other knives). It's a shallow drawer obviously designed for hiding jewelry that you have to open the main drawer first, then you can slide this out over the top.

Washing bedding and doing some dusting today.  Thought I'd be fun to put contents of my computer table and night stand on the bed.  My Olight and Zebralight are charging in the kitchen so they are absent.

You seem to have organised them there, so is that three plier multitool pouches, two knife pouches, and a clump of Swiss knife pouches?

I tried to dump them into proper piles.  The Skinths ( black and green pouches ) contain Explores and AAA lights.  The black one is a little larger so I've added a mini sharpie and a small length of paracord.  I also added a Squirt to the green one and Style PS to the black one. 

The black leather sheath contains my Charge Ti.  The leather sheaths nearby are Swisstool, Ranger, 84mm Salesman + AA Light, Trad Buck Creek, Trad Camillus 64, Wenger S something ( Eddie Bauer ), Pocket Tool Chest + Fenix AAA. 

The loose SAKs are ones I like but do not have scissors ( except the 58mm and Wenger Esquire ).  They are in constant limbo.  84mm Tinker, Bantam, 2 Wengers, Cadet 2, Wenger Cyclist, Minichamp, Manager, Wenger Esquire SS.

The folders I carry from time to time so I keep them out.  Spyderco Delica, Native, Dragonfly and BM MiniGriptillion. 

The CRKY Toothpick is fun and honestly I dont carry it as much as I want to.  The Sod Buster is in the same scenario. 

The Trad on the Kahala notebook is my go to for off day carry.  In the sheath with it are a mini Bic and Squirt. 

I carry all the fixed blades at some point or another with the Esee ( green one ) most followed by the BM Contigo large one in plastic sheath.  The Old Timer is a new one for me but its been really fun.  I also carry the HEST a lot for work.

Yes.  It makes deciding very easy.  Then I add if the mood strikes or supplement as needed, if needed.
