    Thought I would finally start my own thread and keep track of my own edc progress/transformation.

    My name is David, I am 34 years old, married with two boys. A soon to be five year old and a 18 month old. I am a small business owner, I automate driveway gates. Just me and my best friend do all the installations. The user name d1ggs13 actually originated from digger, a knick name a former boss gave me for, well, digging.

    Doing installations and service to existing systems demands all kinds of tools, but always most useful are the ones you carry on person. So I have been into EDC, just didn't know it. In search of higher quality gear I searched the interweb, found this forum. Lurked, spent hours reading up on gear, and finally after a year started posting.

    Recently I ordered a homage watch and patiently waited 5 weeks. Started saving for the real deal, in the meantime

    Sweet gear. Love the lenslight in copper, and the zebra light. I am pretty sure I need a right angle zebra light. Love the afck 806 as I said. Its on my list to get. What Atwood do you have in the pics above. Looking to get one...
    I'm a small business guy with two boys as well. Enjoy it and keep living the dream...

    I looked for another 806 after the tip broke, wasn't many that I could find, and the ones I found where a lot more than what I paid.

    The zebra light is great as a headlamp, although there UI drives me crazy. Maybe I lack the patience to use it properly.

    Eventually I'll get pictures and details of my man bag on here. I got the "prepping" bug years ago, guess that also came from the scouts, so I have collected a fair amount of gear over time.

    The Atwood is the wrunt. Took me a little bit to figure out which one I would TRY to find. Thought the wrunt fit my want. I use it to open boxes, unscrew my control panels lids, beverage opener ;) I have never used the wrench part of it. I'm sure the opportunity will present itself one day. Pricey, but I use my gear, worth it to me if you use something daily.
    The ghost was high on my list of possibilities as well.

    My man bag. Maxpedition Sitka. This is my winter EDC as items are a bit bulkier, Tom Bihn synapse 19 goes into the closet. I'll get some pics and description up of whats inside in the near future.

    Stainless 32oz bottle and 25oz cup with graduations. Use this along with MSR pocket rocket to make coffee/tea at job sites this time of year for a little morale booster when working in the cold.

    Thanks. Currently hunting an Atwood, looking for something I can use, and that can be a cool timeless piece to pass on in the future. I have an older proto flat head key chain driver, that my grandpa passed to me. I am a little concerned about the zebra light ui, but I do like all the variable modes. Still stuck on paying over $200 for an 806, although I do know where a nib one is for less. One thing at a time I guess. Edc is too much fun...

    Nice kit. I noticed some similarities in taste for knives and homage watches then noticed the bead. Took me a few to realize who you were.........!

    How are you liking the PAM homage?

    @hatchetjack thank you sir. I am very happy with the homage watch. I just received it a week ago, but my initial observation is it seems a pretty good build. I think it was in one of your post I read that the first thing you do is replace the straps. So I got a new strap the same day I ordered watch. Sure glad I did, the strap that comes with watch HAD to be changed out lol.
