    Hello everybody,

    after lurking around this forum for quite some time, I decided to participate,
    since this looks like a great place. :D

    My name's Oliver, am 27 and come from Germany.

    I hope (whishful thinking) that I'll gain knowledge from you guys,
    even more than this will become an enabler to lighten my wallet. :cool:

    Currently my gear's pretty non excistend and consists of
    - 2 Opinels (8+9)
    - Alox Pioneer
    - Spyderco Bug Knife (always on my keys)
    - Fenix E01
    - Photonpump E6, which was replaced as my EDC light yesterday, by:

    [​IMG]IMG_20141113_173656 by oliverleschke, on Flickr :inlove:

    Anyway, I'm excited to participate (have some stuff coming in) and have a good time around here.


    Best,
    Oliver

    Actually, you have a great set up already... A SAK and a good torch can go a long way!

    Welcome, from Florida, U.S.A!

    You're right, for sure, but a small multitool (i.e) will be a useful addition :)

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Off the top of my head - Leatherman Wingman or Sidekick for EDC. Highly affordable (25$ roughly). Rides in pocket well, w/ clip.

    LM ST 300 for an all around beast of a tool. Relatively affordable.

    SwissTool for complete quality and craftsmanship, at price point that matches.

    Best, to open up your own EDC thread pronto, we, errr, you will have it filled quickly with new stuff.

    I mean, just to document your progress. :)
