    Well, I'm new to the forum, but I thought I would share a little of my EDC progression. This first picture is where my EDC was a number of months ago when I started paying attention to the stuff in my pockets, the second picture is my current EDC.

    Wallet (Wenger)
    Keys (loose in pocket)
    SAK (Victorinox Tinker)

    Picture #2:
    Keys (w/ carabiner & SAK Classic)
    Lip Balm (Carmex)

    Yeah, I have come to realize that it is indeed a slippery slope!!!

    And sorry for the terrible pictures, I posted this from my phone and they looked pretty good on my phone screen! I will try to retake the pics when I get a chance.

    Also, I should mention that I forgot my trusty Timex, a small USB thumb drive, and a mini Bic lighter are also always in my watch pocket.

    Neat! I'll be adding this to my watch list. ^^

    haha Or maybe you can keep it as is and also show progression in your camera-phone taking skills too! :) From the looks of it, it can pass for something that's got a filter on. :D

    Okay, so I am in the process of replacing the crummy pictures in my original post... And I added the few items that were missing previously. Now I guess I'll just keep posting stuff as my EDC changes!

    Don't let her bully you, gcconsiracy! Those pictures were fine!

    (^ That's only marginally funny because we all know Mooshisho is a kind, generous, and all around great person and is the antithesis of a bully. Although she does appear quite threatening with that big container of hot sauce in her hand:p )

    Definitely no bullying going on here! I'm changing the photos of my own volition. Although I am already getting too many great ideas from this forum... My EDC may progress faster than I intended!!!

    yeah, I always hate posting from my phone, but figured I better give fair warning for all the spelling mistakes and autocorrected words!

    Got a Byrd Tern today as a gift! Such a cool little knife, and my first knife from the spyderco family. Still not sure how it will fit into my EDC, but I'm sure I'll have fun figuring it out!

    After about a week with the Tern I realized I just wasn't loving it; nothing against the Tern, it just wasn't my thing. I hadn't really used it at all, so I was able to return it and pick up a Buck Vantage Avid small. I've only had it for a couple of hours, but I've already connected with this knife far more than I ever did with the Tern. Amazing blade shape, awesome pocket clip, perfect EDC size, and overall killer looks!

    Just a brief EDC update...

    -I realized I was only using my SAK classic for the toothpick, so I ditched the classic and tucked a full size SAK toothpick in my wallet.
    -I replaced the zebra F-301 with a zebra telescopic, and am LOVING the compact form factor
    -I gave my EAB a "spydie hole" & bought some Irwin blue blades
    -I replaced my folded up piece of paper with a hipster PDA (index cards held together with a binder clip). Sounds simple, but has been a huge improvement!
    -I replaced my dollar store carabiner with one of these http://www.mec.ca/AST/ShopMEC/HikingCamping/PackBinersKeyHolders/PRD~5006-809/mec-mec.ca-strap-keyring-biner.jsp (mine's all black though)
    -I started EDCing a hankerchief
    -I have also been carrying my new Buck Vantage Avid daily (see above post), and am just so impressed with this little knife!

    Wow, I hadn't realized how much had changed in the last little while... I may just have to take a new pocket dump photo!

    Alright, here's an updated pocket dump... Most (if not all) changes have been explained in my last post, but I figured I'd post a pic either way!

    Thanks, it's proven to be a dandy little knife (and the Dymondwood scales are really nice in person)! Perfect size for EDC IMHO. I will have to post a more in depth review once I've EDC'ed it for a decent length of time.
