I still remember when I was in college and my Aunt sent me some homemade bread and cookies for Thanksgiving.  But the mailroom closed for the holiday before I got there.  I had to wait until Sunday evening and by that time some of it was moldy.  I was so sad.  I picked through the box to ensure I got everything that was still good.

That is so sad :ahhh nothing worse than moldy bread :dwts:

Those mini pry bars look pretty cool. Hope your daughter gets some good use out of the Kershaw! :hatsoff:

Yes, I think they are the ones that County Comm sells :think: either way I liked them :D

She likes knives and I figured she would like that one and when I showed it to her she took it and left :D

Those pry bars are great.  Good choice.  Is that red micarta folder?  Looks awesome.  Cant ever go wrong with a trad. 

Glad your daughter got something too.  Always nice to hear bout the next generations appreciation of such items.

Here is what I ended up with :salute: I think that was all :think: who knows I may have gotten something else and already forgot :facepalm: :rofl:

My daughter did also get the blue handled Kershaw flipper but I have no idea where it is and she isn't here to bring it to me for a pic :dunno: :D
Nice haul and glad you shared with daughter.

Take your time Poncho.  I figure the longer it takes you to pack it the more things you're going to find to put in it. :woohoo: :cheers:

I'm not trying to highjack this thread, but I wish I could be part of this. I know no such package would ever cross the Atlantic or inter'l borders without "disappearing", so I'm not asking for anything, but I just have great memories from EDC passarounds. :cry:
If only there was an EU pass around…  :whistle:
I have successfully sent stuff to Europe and thought about paying shipping to try sending part of this one, like what was done for NZ and Australia.  But from what I understand VAT probably would make it not worth it. 

If there is interest and someone willing to do the mail part (I’ll pay), we could try.

I find one of the easiest ways to get some women involved is the small easy carry pocket pair.  A pair similar to below has been given and become a edc for several women I know.

My wife was one!  If she tried it, and it worked, she would find a way to have it.

We were at a picnic for my work, something needed cutting, she asked for my knife, I had a Buck 112 on my belt and gave it to her. 
On the way home she gave it back.  Asked about it and where I bought it.  Buck web site.
A couple days later she asked this site, yes, showed her hunting knives, classic and then customs and how to pick your own handles, steel etc.  (three months from my bd!)

😉

Well nothing more said, or asked or even hinted.

Out to eat with family, nicer place, two of grandkids ordered corn for a side, arrived corn on the cob😁. Problem both are 6 yrs and no front teeth.  Grandma picks up her purse, extracts a Buck Ranger with Stag handles, opens the blade and sliced that corn off the Cobb in no time, wiped the blade and closed and returned to her purse.

I never asked, and she never said a thing, but  it was HERS.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Oh, she has all kinds of different SAKs and a few LM tools and does carry something always in her purse (except for when she is at school  ;) ) She has a pretty good sized 58mm SAK collection and a few different type knives :cheers:

I have gotten my wife to carry a 58mm alox Classic and that is probably the extent of it :dunno: :D

Bought my mom a No 8 Opinel that she carries in her purse always (I have the small trad that her mom (my granny) carried with her as well :salute: )

I gave my mom and my sister each a Susan G Komen breast cancer awareness commemorative Classic SD.  They always have them in their purses and seem to like them. Picture off the web.

You need to get her a jetsetter or LM PS Style for school.  After seeing my PS Style, one of my nephews begged me for one so he could have something he could take to school.

My wife hasn't bought herself anything yet, but her "share" of my collection is slowly growing.

It started off with a spare Classic, then she got a Tinker when we started camping. When I switched out my Rambler for an Executive she took the Rambler. The Classic sits on her desk and opens mail now. She grabs the Tinker when she wants something a little bigger, and the Rambler gets a decent amount of use.

I hunted down her birth year Soldier, and she carried it on a few camping trips. She liked it, but she wanted scissors and I didn't want have to replace the Soldier if something happened to it. SMKW had a deal on blue (her favorite color) Farmer Xs, and I'd wanted one anyway, so we upgraded her to that. It mostly lives in her car, but she drops it in her pocket when we're wandering around the woods or go over her mom's to help fix something.

My wife doesn’t even say “share”.  There is here end table Super Tinker and her kitchen Pioneer X.
