    Hi forum,
    after being on the forum for some time, I felt it’s time to show off some of my stuff. This will change from time to time. I’ll put up something like a table of contents in this post when there are a few changes, and begin with real content in the next post.

    • Böker Exskelibur 1
    • Sunwayman V10R XM-L T6 with 16340
    • red iPod nano (4G) with Sennheiser CX 400II (here I don’t like multitouch, I want to be able to use the iPod without looking)
    • Black Diamond key carabiner with McNett Nitestik and True Utility Keyring System with my keys attached to it. The carabiner will probably be replaced with a key holder similar to MP Keyper, but made by me out of a HK G3 sling (my version of “Swords to ploughshares” ;)).
    Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack

    [​IMG]

    • MP Rollypoly attached with Short TacTies. I use this for shopping small items or for storing shirts or thin jackets when on the way
    • 1 l blue Nalgene narrow mouth bottle, sometimes combined with a Tatonka 500 ml folding handle mug (not pictured) fitting perfect on the bottle’s bottom
    • on the outside velcro loops is a selfmade copper logo patch with black velcro hooks glued onto
    Rear compartment

    [​IMG]

    Top compartment

    • IMCO 6700 Triplex (with additional zippo flint inside), sometimes in a small ziploc-like bag (as a non-smoker, I don’t use it very much; any tips to prevent evaporation?)
    Front compartment



    [​IMG]

    • Oxmox trifold leather wallet (to be replaced someday with something slimmer) with driver’s license, id, money, debit card, etc.

    • small mouth spray pump bottle. When this one is empty I’ll fill in insect repellant (see below) and add carry it in addition to a new mouth spray
    • small container with plastic toothpicks (do not split like wood)
    • small wooden hairbrush with wood bristles
    • duct tape on an old cc sized plastic card
    • magnifying glass (13 dpt) which I was told is for oculists (never found something similar online)
    • cheap pseudo-BIC lighter
    Side zipper compartment

    [​IMG]

    • the rolled up “hip belt” that came with the Jumbo, which I use for more sport-like situations like hiking but not every day

    Slit compartment

    [​IMG]

    • I’m waiting for a pico grappling hook to combine with the dyneema line
    • Opinel Nº08 Carbone Hêtre for “can you lend me a knife” situations when I don’t want to worry about someone ruining my more expensive knives

    love the imco, austria´s proud answer to the zippo (try to put it into a heavy quality plastic baggie and fix it airtight with ranger bands, that will slower the fuel loss)

    all in all a very complete setup!:cool:

    Next week I’ll finally add some pictures, when I get the USB-cable for a Sony camera (or find some other possibility to read these damned memory sticks without buying something for it). :spin:

    But to add some substance, here comes a little hint for whoever got me in Mooshisho’s EDC Holiday Gift Exchange™:
    Swiss M71 cooker, single item or 10-piece bulk;
    Victorinox nail clipper (8.2055.CB) or True Utility SlimClips;
    Book Darts (bronze, 125 piece can);
    Sugru;
    Spare Nokia BL-5K battery or a good substitute;
    Victorinox Pioneer Pruner (0.8060.26);
    Strap for a Swatch Skin Chrono;

    These are roughly ordered in ascending price. Whoever got me as presentee can pick something of this list or send me something cool but completely different. I guess I’ll not get a red iPod nano 7th generation. ;)

    Edit 2013-04-10: Stroke through what I got or bought myself already.

    I saw you have an Opinel or two. Every man should have at least 1 Opinel.

    I got a pair of new/unused Knipex combination pliers from the flea market, too. They’re in my car. I should take a few pictures and make a list of my car set.

    Wow, very impressive EDC!

    I was a little confused at first that you carry a Knippex Wasserpumpenzange because you also carry a Victorinox Swiss Tool Spirit but I guess you need it for your bike, right?

    Thanks everybody. :)

    I only carry it if I feel the need to, for example when I know I’ll ride the bike. My bike has an old Brooks England leather saddle and it sometimes needs to get tightened on the seat post; and there are many other bolts and screws.


    PS: I guess the first one who’ll like my wish list post is the one who got me in the gift exchange. So beware of revealing yourself ahead of time! ;)

    I took some more pics today. Some things are gone (the hair brush, like the long hair; the “turkish pepper”), some more came.

    The o-ring I mentioned before
    [​IMG]

    A silicone case for a mini BIC and the CC pico grappling hook.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    That’s how the grappling hook rides in the MP Organiser
    [​IMG]

    My new wallet. I wanted one which fits my ID and car ID and has a zipper for the coins. The store claimed it cost 60€ before, but it was on sale, so I got two of them.

    Caran d’Ache 844 mechanical pencil in neon yellow. It matches the 849 I already had.

    While taking all these pics, I took some more to show off a few knives.

    Marttiini my grandfather bought 1961 in Finland.
    [​IMG]
    Some swiss gear (Vic Champion, Wenger Commander, Vic Bantam, Vic Escort). There’s the Vic nail clipper, but it looks different than I expected.
    [​IMG]
    Cheap diver knife (Technosub Diablo), cheap throwing knife (never used it really), cheap utility knife.
    [​IMG]

    And then here’s what you can do with an X-Acto, a Benchmade 515 Rant and a spoon:

    Got some new stuff. And the pox.

    A new silicone strap for my Swatch Skin Chrono (not a correct on for this model, but it fits). Another Wenger Commander (new, only the box shows some wear). A used Vic Pioneer Apprentice. A new Wenger Swiss Army 70 (Standard Issue without year stamp). A used Vic Classic Alox. Two Vic Alox USB drives (16GB pink, 32GB silver). An EDCF key holder, a Fenix E01 and an unpictured EDCF buff. Made a few clips for pocket carrying out of a hacksaw.
