One way I rationalize buying so many different knives, lights, multitools, holsters and guns is that different clothes call for different items. One recent morning I was looking in my edc drawer trying to figure out what would work with the pants I was wearing, and I had to laugh at myself. I reminded myself of a woman trying different earrings and shoes on with her new dress, seeing what looked best. Part of the fun is mixing things up, though. I like seeing how much capability I can have on my person without it being obvious.
