    Hello, fropstar from the UK here.

    Very long time lurker first time poster.

    After lurking through the forum for a while I have now got me a Gerber Recoil (Which I found outside the shop I was going to buy a Multi from).
    And a Nitecore Defender.
    I don't EDC a lot of stuff, because i work in a warehouse for an engineering company, so there are plenty of good stuff to use when I need it, but recently have decided to start a Small edc compulstion.

    Day to day now I carry in my cheep rucksack: 50 yard clump of black paracord (expensive and hard to get in the UK)
    Small Swiss Army Knife (trustyrustyescapeandevasionflickhammer)

    On my person wallet with cash, cards, spare Pay As You Go Simcard
    Cigarettes and a lighter with a built on Led Light
    Moblie Phone in a case.

    Would like to get my hands on some countycomm goodies but they don't do export.
    Very jealous of you in the U.S. in the fact that you can carry loads of treats, us in the UK cannot, we have to be careful on blade length not locking etc.

    Welcome to the forum! If you're looking for CountyComm goodies, there a number of members here willing to help get members who are outside the U.S. get the stuff they want. Here's a great example of a recent group buy.

    Hello and welcome!

    I can empathize with your situation in UK. No cool toys over here in Singapore either :laugh:
