    Both the Junzi and the SRM 4110SUX-LY cut like light sabers but they're more convenient for pocket carry:

    [​IMG]

    No telescoping knitting needles; but as well as the knife+slip, pen, torch, lighter and inhaler, the pouch does also hold spare hairbands for my girls, spare battery for the Olight S1A, Spare cash and a little L shaped 6/8 torx for the knives should they need...

    This (plus the car keys if going further afield) is the minimum (and add a pocket pack of tissues for the maximum) I'll be carrying in my pockets 99.9% of the time.

    The only thing that has changed in the last six months is upgrading a Spyderco Urban to the Bestech Junzi.

    Usually the pouch and keys are in L front, Knife (in slip) in R front, wallet L rear, phone and tissues R rear.
    The knife can be stored in the pouch if need be.

    And that's it. Basically from min to max pocket edc from the moment I'm dressed... Never leave the house with less.

    All else will be in my edc bag...

    Nicely done. That's efficiency, and stealth. Still have room for titanium knitting needles, though. ; D

    Thanks. I wanted it to be as discreet as possible.

    I'd walked around for years with various configurations of belt pouch, but finally let go of my need to carry the kitchen sink as I moved away from expansive 'what If' considerations. I now just have things I'll use frequently or could make all the difference in a real pinch (like the ability to make fire, emergency meds and cash, or a good dedicated light with a few extra hours of juice).

    I may have to work some cool titanium knitting needles into my edc just in case I need to throw down some emergency crochet and make a blanket whilst out walking on the moors.. Plenty of sheep carrying the raw materials around out there:cold:
    (Those bad boys may have to be relegated to the edc bag rather than 'on body' carry though;))

    I too fell for the 'must have' of everything... now, depending (I guess That's the key), it's card wallet, bills and SAK.
    -keys & phone don't count for me, work only.....

    Yes it is, from round two, missed them the first time! If they come back a third time going to grab another, the blades they ship with aren't the best but scalpel blades are fairly inexpensive and the rest of it is pretty good!

    I'm carrying the same light and I love it! Do you have the Cree or Nichia emitter? I've got the Nichia, myself.

    Mine is also Nichia, I like it enough to overlook the somewhat less than ideal UI!
