    I've been a member here for quite some time and just realised I forgot to introduce myself. I hang around here, bladeforums.com, britishblades.com , multitool.org, realoutdoorforums.com and such like. Usually known as kakashi but sometimes meikou.

    I'm English but spent most of my childhood in the US until 84 when we moved back to the UK. I met my American wife in '98 via ebay and I moved back here in 2000.

    My informative years were during the 80's and I got the knife/survival bug after sneaking in to see First Blood. I had all sorts of knives back then (buckmaster as well) but could never afford a Lile.
    I love higonokami knives and have several including a heavy duty one made for me by a Japanese blacksmith friend but my favourite is my hikari d2 with liner lock. I've always been a SAK fan and have a champ form the mid 90's, spirit plus in bo and soon a wenger 557. I've carried a sog powertool (gave it away) leatherman mut (sold to a bloke back home) and currently a bo surge. The surge stays in the car as it's a brick.

    As far as torches go, I still have 2 regular sized tekna lights (one still in tube) and the mini version all from the early 80's. I've had several AA maglights but breaking bulbs/crap led conversions have steered me away. Right now all I have is a low end led lenser and a $5 lowes led. I'm looking to add a couple of decent torches to my kit especially a key chain type so I have it on me all the time.

    I don't tend to carry much on me for edc as I keep most of it is in the Xterra but when the 557 arrives it will be on my all the time.

    Cheers everyone.

    hal_chase, I bought a Ren and Stimpy t shirt from her. It sort of snowballed from there.
