Peter Atwood G5 Prybaby - CPM S35VN
Victorinox Swisscard Lite quad flat screwdriver
MBI Matchbook match - Water Resistant LED (match head) with lithium battery & magnetic end section. Activated ON/OFF by moving head IN/OUT
Placed in cut credit card (retail hardware loyalty program)
Held in place with a few thin strands of sticky tape

Very cool! Do they still sell those match lights?

Unfortunately, Matchbox Instruments (MBI), maker of those "MBI Matchbook match" lights, no longer exists as far as I know (since before 2018). The fellow who ran it under the synonym or real name [(TGWNN) The Guy With No Name], Guy is sadly no longer around the scene. He was based in Tokyo and I suspect was US military. Interactions with him about his outstanding equipment were fantastic and he was a true gentleman. Have tried contacting him via web and snail mail many times but nada. His last correspondences with me a few months before all went dark mentioned some illness but confidence in recovery. Very sad. All my MBI stuff just keeps on working. Thanks Guy.
If anyone out there knows any different please let me know.

Thanks PC.
The Atwood G5b Prybaby in the cutout is thin and not much more than a credit card.
Other versions I have like the Atwood P13 Metric Pry Baby are way thicker. I've made a little sheath for those but they serve more to protect other bag or pocket stuff from being damaged.
A couple of examples …

That's a beautiful looking Opinel Heywood.

Everyone needs to quit posting their awesome Opinel before I decide to get one.  Everyone told me this was a support group.  I didn't realize it was to support your habit.  :rofl:

LOL, BTW a serious Opinel benefit for EDC is that they are so light for included performance.
Just weighed that Opinel pictured and its 34 grms ~ 1.2 ounces
and its a #8 Opinel blade length.

Just love coming here and  :drool:.  Great job on the photos.  Opinels are such good knives.  There is no hype to them, they are simple effective slicing tools.  Very comfortable in hand and easy to carry however you choose.

@Heywood, how's the quality and light output of that Lumintop.  Thanks to you, I've just discovered another cool item.  :D

@variable, that's a neat custom SAK.  Care to show it off more and talk about it?

The scales are from ALM of Poland. Internals are from a S557 except the 3rd layer only the back spring. I did my own scalpel holder #22, #24 currently #36 blade and a 4mm bit holder with internal magnet retention it has a double sided bit in it currently. Both the scalpel holder are made of 316L stainless steel, 3D printed. The Pivots are 0.110 heat treated sexbolts.  I acid heat anodized the scales, the photos are bad (I not a good photographer :facepalm:) but they look brownish in person.

The flashlight is a;
FW3T (Titanium alloy & Cu) Flashlight (batt=18650), 3 X Nichia 219C 4000K emitters & Andúril UI.
+ Veleno Designs - FW3A Titanium tritium switch - equilateral triangle
I bought it mid 2019 emanating from a BLF (Budget Light Forum) project. If travelling it has become my go to light. Build quality is great and reliability has been faultless. Light output can adjust from moonlight to blinding weapon like as desired.
Andúril UI will need some study and practice but worthwhile for mine.

Variable, that's a fantastic personalised and interesting edc setup you have there. Thanks for sharing the neat "steam punk" nicely thought out custom SAK pics and explanation.
What's the fountain pen demonstrator?

Thanks @AzteCypher and @Heywood Floyd

The fountain pen I received with a bottle of UV ink. I use it when signing legal documents as a watermark, due to past issues here. I had it with me since I just got back from the lawyers signing docs so I had it my Olight  and camera for recording/documenting.

@Heywood Floyd I love the Opinel you did, it made me order one to try a little personal touches too. Thanks!  :like:

Thanks very much Variable.
I'm wrapped that you find it worthwhile and kind of you to say so.
Please post a pic when you get done.
Cool use of the FP. I've enough FPs and ink for many lifetimes but have never thought to use it as you do. Thx :-)

Nice set, as usuawl. Did you made that watch strap? Looks great! You keep posting that wallet, I'm going to steal that design and make one for me!

 :D :D

Thx pfrsantos,
The watch strap pictured was my first attempt and it still gets used quite a bit. It's a simple single layer which is vary comfortable to wear and compact when not used or in reserve. The veg tanned leather has accumulated a good sun tan patina.
I've since tried some double layers with internal stiffening of the watchband per pic below.
Not sure if mentioned in earlier posts, but the wallet has an internal (not visible) tongue that keeps paper money wrapped around it and available for convenient slide out extraction.
I'd be interested to see how your wallet turns out.

That's a really cool build Variable.  Really liking that bit holder.  And 3D printed scalpel holder... awesomeness!

Heywood, you need to quit posting those nice Opinels.  I caught myself looking at them yesterday.  Had to close out that window before the wife walked in.  :rofl:

Thanks @AzteCypher, I wanted a direct drop-in design so if in the future I decide to change it up, just swap out the tools.

@Heywood Floyd, Thanks I have a No. 6 on order but I think I should have got a No. 7 for what I have in mind to try. It should be here in about 6 weeks, post is VERY slow here. :whistle:

@Heywood Floyd: That is a dapper wallet you made. I like the looks in black with contrasting elastic band.
You take such perfect photos, my photos look so Vivitar 110.
