Hello Everyone! I'm relatively new to the EDC community. About a year ago my husband wanted a tritium lantern and didn't have a Facebook page so I had to enter a Pete Gray auction. I had no idea what EDC was but after seeing the beads and lanterns I was hooked. I grew up with a father who was a collector of guns,knives and coins, and have always enjoyed his collection but now have started my own. Two of my favorites are my Pete Gray Mokume lantern and my bullaculla lantern bead fitted with rainbow tritium. I am a lover of all things purple including my swiss army knives(former girl scout) and all shades of purple anodized titanium. My husband and I attended my first gathering G8 and I was overwhelmed by the artists, machinists and craftsmen. The work was incredible but what was even more amazing was how welcoming and kind everyone was. Everyday I am amazed at the artistry and warmth of the EDC community!
