    Hello,

    It's around 1 pm in sunny Jakarta. Traffic is heavy with several roadworks around main thoroughfare and expected to get worse tomorrow (massive public demonstration supporting anti-corruption)...

    I've spent the last 8 weeks collecting various EDC items from afar (Tweezers from Canada, L2 lights from Hong Kong etc etc). Lost 1 package so far (well, I'm giving it until the end of next week for it to turn up). I have to blame you people (as well as those in candlepower) for starting me on this wallet busting (well, it's PayPal busting really) hobby... :broke: ;D
    I'm ordering (from a local craftsman) a customised mission wallet and belt pouch using pictures posted in this forum as inspiration - fingers crossed.

    Looking forward to our future interactions here.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to EDCF.

    The Forum has pluses and minuses. The pluses are the valuable insight offered. The minuses is the lighter wallet, we all be come true minimalists in the cash department.

    Welcome to the forum! It certainly does end up costing you money, but you learn more about yourself along the way.

    I'm sure we'd all love to see photos of the custom items you're having done!

    There is a thread in kaskus.us: LOEKELOE / ACTIVITY & HOBBY / Pisau / tempat Pamerin semua Koleksi pisau lo semua
    with lots of chats on colletion and knives for sale in ID. There is a noob who is selling custom made knives and leather works. His leather and workmanship looks OK on pictures.
    Am ordering a wallet (a'la bill's urban wallet) and a combo knife+torch+pen belt pouch. Should be ready this weekend.
    Will post their pics when I get them.

    Welcome aboard.
    Im reminded of of an terrible, old & probably VERY un-PC joke from Jeeves & Wooster:-

    Person 1 -"My wife's gone to the East Indies"
    Person 2 - "Jakarta?"
    Person 1 - "No. She went by boat!"

    Dont worry, I wont give up my day job to become a stand-up comic!
