Well... for me it doesn't make much sense the "home EDC" concept. Maybe "home EDU" as in "Use"...

Since i'm at home most of the time, i don't really "carry" anything. I'll have a Climber at hand if i specifically need any of it's tools (blade, scissors), otherwise i'll just use my (huge amount of) dedicated tools of course. Why use a SAK tool if i have my actual tools near me...?

When i go out (seldomly) i'll carry a Pioneer these days, cause i can easily soak it in alcohol to disinfect, and not worry about messing up the scales  :D

Another point for Alox. Good choice!

No changes, per se, but I did replace my EDC flashlight. I used to carry a Leatherman Serac S3, but where I live, CR123A batteries are too expensive, so I got an Inova X1 not long after I moved here, about 7 years ago. It turns out I hated the X1, but it wasn’t until this year that I finally got around to replacing it with a Fenix E12 v2.0.

I love the Fenix, but then I decided I wanted an EDC light with a red secondary LED, so I got a Nitecore EC11. I probably would have preferred the EA11, because it takes 14500/AA batteries, as opposed to the 18350/CR123A of the EC11, but both models are discontinued, and I was only able to find the EC11. I’m rmostly thrilled with it, other than the battery issue, it’s almost perect. To get around the expense of CR123A batteries, I put in a Fenix ARB-L16-700UP rechargeable Li-ion 16340 cell with integral micro USB charger.

My knives haven’t changed, still the same Victorinox Rambler, Gerber Harsey AirFrame, and Buck Diamondback 476 fixed-blade I use as a food prep knife for cutting crusty baguettes and such. It’s just that, since I rarely leave the house anymore, except to get groceries, I don’t “carry” my EDC gear much, at all. It just sits in my handbag next to my bed, and the Inova X1 and Victorinox Classic SD on my bedside table are what I use more than anything else.

Vic Spirit and AAA flashlight.
I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Why would I carry anything at home? 

You empty your pockets when you're at home.

I don't. I like to have the Midnite Manager or Director in my pocket. It saves me a trip to the tool drawer and it awlso gives me a fidget toy to carry around.

Recently, I awlso have the Winchester Stagecoach. I like the tiny blades and the wood scales are getting a nice patina from being handled.

When I was isolating due to Covid, I had a small alcohol spray bottle in my pocket. It was joined by a Lumintop AA flashlight. Off course when I’d sleep, I’d empty my pockets and place them beside me.

When my quarantine was lifted but the kids still needed to be isolated, I tried to pocket carry a LM Mini. I stopped since I’ll be saving it for the Feb Mini Tool challenge.

I work in IT and spent a lot of the last two years in quarantine due to my wife working at a High School. I live at my desk so Its been Climber/5.11 EDC light for 99% of my life and a SOG PowerAccess thrown in my pocket if I go to the office for any network needs.

My home edc is the SAK I choose for the day and its in my pocket. Sometimes when I take it out early I go for the Swisstool in the hall.

Us an MD I had no changes in my life, just more work.
In the house I usually have no pockets to carry anything. But I leave my Monosling beside the bed and I have everything there, plus a Swisschamp by my bed. In my den there's everything else and when doing hobbying our maintenance work I reach for some other tool.
