    Ok after some thought I have decided to put a chronicle of my edc journey together. Starting with the 1st items I carried. These are the actual first items I think, now granted I have changed up my gear overtime, and a lot of this is recollection. As a kid, I carried pocket knives and other edc items. But 16 years ago before the birth of my 1st son Jackson, I made a conscious decision to carry what I thought a dad should have with him at all times. So buckle up and here we go. And as always thanks for looking. Bandana and Spyderco Delica,

    I remember seeing guys running around with these clips in their pockets ( I lived in Portland, OR at the time) I wondered what they were, when I found out I thought it was a great idea to carry a knife like that, so off to the store I went and got myself a Delica .

    If I remember correctly I found that a fixed blade didn't quite cut it (see what I did there) as a dad knife. So I picked up a SAK. I think it was a swisschamp (after a car break in and theft) it was gone. I ended up with a Yeoman, which I still have. 2nd son was born Sullivan and the need for more bandanas grew.

    Now for many of us our first edc light was most likely a maglite of some variety, as was mine. My first significant light up grade was a streamlight microstream (not original, lost to the edc gods) Wow, coming from a maglite, this thing was awesome for such a small package. And then later I found what would be my EDC carry for quite sometime... the 4sevens preon (original gear). I think around this time I started to carry lighters ( I don't smoke) 1st lighter with the microstream carry was a bic. Then around the time I found the term EDC, and found the Preon I also found IMCO lighters.

    So now to this point, I had an IMCO lighter, SAK yeoman, bandana, 4sevens preon, I needed a writing implement. I picked up the Fisher bullet space pen. This is my original I have had for years.

    Not sure which forum members gear it was. But the day I saw it, it was game over. It was an all copper setup, the unique item was a copper colored Imco lighter. Once I saw the beauty of an all matching EDC setup, the sickness was born. This was a solid carry for me for quite some time. I ended up swapping the Colibri lighter out for a Matte black zippo with a z-plus butane insert. I still use the those inserts to this day in all my zippos.

    Todays carry. I really like this set up. Something about carrying brass makes me smile. Zippo, Maratac AAA, and Fisher space pen all in solid brass. Coyote brown alox cadet, and G-shock.

    I like it a lot, I have the Ti version as well, which I don't like. For some reason that tint is more warm. I did swap the gitd clicky cover out tho :) The one pictured is the D25a clicky CW

    I hope I can live up to the competition :)

    What does the CW stand for? Don't know which led you have but mine is the XM-L2 in neutral white. It's a little yellowish but colour rendition is excellent:D

    cw=cool white, not sure if it is a true cool white it's XML2 but it's pretty cool in color. at least compared to the ti version which supposedly has the same led but very yellow to me.

    Duh should have known that. But that's weird. No idea as to how or why, don't know that much about them. I just entered the flashlight game a couple of weeks ago. I don't like yellow very much, but it's better than the awful blue my Chinese light has. Everything gets completely washed out with that

    New fun things.... M & P Shield 9mm with Talon grips, and PM2 with GITD Back spacer. I Love that little pistol, I never would have thought something could bump my Glock 26 out of my rotation, but this thing has been great.
