    Welcome, you're probably one of our youngest members :)

    Nice stuff you've got there. I would find the TK10 way too big for EDC use. Do you carry it in a bag?

    You should get some basic first-aid supplies by the way. Bandaids and such.

    yep, TK10 would be carried in a bag. I always have one on me or in my car so it shouldn't be a problem. Got alot of band-aids from New Graham Knives with my order so I think I'll throw some of those in my wallet lol. Good idea, thanks.

    O0 Those are good choices. I EDC a Charge TTi with the bit-kit and the universal tool adapter in my bag - covers all my fixing/breaking needs. ;D When I go minimalist, I switch over to a Squirt P4. I carry the Squirt in my pocket though.. don't think it'll be that comfy on the neck as it'll smack onto the sternum especially when I have to walk fast/run. YMMV :)

    Great start! It is the beginning of a great adventure.... I started my forum accelerated EDC phase about 5 years ago. In hindsight I wish I paced myself a bit more. Get full satisfaction from your items before the inevitable upgrade. O0

    +1 on the multitool. I would highly suggest the Wave/Charge. I would aslo suggest the Squirt i have 3 ;D 2 P4s and 1 S4. However if you are on a tight budget get a Gerber Clutch. I think you can get one from Wal-mart it is a great tool and only costs around $12.

    If you don't need the pliers, I'd highly reccommend a Victorinox SAK. A lot lighter and more compact than any leatherman.

    :iagree:A Skeletool is well worth considering, I bought one last summer and it hasn't been out of my pocket ( unless I'm using it) since!
