    Moving in to new place. My dad just gave me the knife a few days ago. It’s better quality than it looked at first I’ve used it pretty hard and it’s held up great. I don’t like the double lock though. It can be hard to open if your hands are wet.

    I haven't taken a picture but I don't consider a wristwatch an EDC item as I've worn one daily for 55 or so years. I carry a chapstick, SAK Executive, small credit card/ID wallet (from Bosca), and a Benchmade Bugout. I never seem to use the larger knife but it's been a long habit to always have one. For many years, the combo was a SAK Classic and Buck 501 Squire. I also carry my keychain which has my vehicle and house keys, Nitecore Tube flashlight (now the V2 version), Uncle Bill's tweezers, and a tiny pill capsule that holds a couple Aleve and Benadryl. My little wallet has a couple Band-Aids, a generic single use Neosporin packet, a Fresnel lens magnifier (I never remember to bring reading glasses into stores) and a SAK pen refill. Sometimes, I'm packing a small pistol as well. Oh, and I always have my phone (iPhone SE, original version).

    Very similar to my own EDC set up for some years now. A small AAA light, Squirt, and a 58mm SAK. I was carrying a 74mm executive for two years, but eventually realized it was not doing anything moire than my old classic, but was bigger and heavier and mot as space/weight efficient. For over 20 years a little classic was my EDC, so I've sorta went back to my roots. Its truly amazing how far you can go with a squirt, 58mm SAK, and a small AAA light. Add a mini Bic and you have fire capability.

    Sometimes I add a Christy knife to my carry, both for dedicated slicer use and sentimentality, since my dad gave me one when I was a kid.

    I agree, these three can get most edc jobs done just fine. I also agree fire is a good addition. I used to carry strike anywhere matches, and often find myself questioning if I want to add fire capability back into my edc.

    Yes, you need fire, if only to light birthday candles. During the great winter ice storm of '21 we just had here, my daily carry Bic was used to light the 8 hour emergency candles every time the power went out. At one point, we had two of the candles side by side on the stove and heated a small pot of water for tea and instant oatmeal. It was like 15 degrees out and the house was getting chilly. The hot meal and cup of tea with some bourbon in it was spirit lifting.

    Like my old Russian Aunt Tilly told me when I was just a kid, "No matter how bad things seem, if you can make a cup of tea, its not as bad as you think." She lived through the siege of Stalingrad, so she must have learned something. Tiny little 5 foot 1 inch lady with the black shawl over her head, was tough as nails.

    Great history there. I can see using fire to light the charcoal grill, backyard fire pit, and a couple of fireplaces if nothing else. Thanks for sharing.

    Add to that, sterilizing a pin/needle to lance a blister, lighting a candle for emergency use in a power blackout, starting a small campfire to make a hot cup of tea or cocoa.
