    This thread is my take on every day carry, or as we call it round here: EDC.
    Less is more, bigger is better, functionality over design, EDC Pictures galore!

    Edit: it seems many images got broken somewhere in time, jump to the end of this thread for the latest :)

    From left to right:
    - unidentified keychain pen, twist to write, very handy, but a bit too big/heavy to stay on the key chain in the end
    - unidentified dual tip pen - pen/LED
    - set of full rubber coated (yup, coated like some knife handles) parker pen/mechanical pencil
    - a now very rare mechanical Rotring Art Pencil that I had on me for years during my design education. The latter one now is a true collectors item, and it never leaves the desk anymore. The others are frequent in a bag on a roll with me.

    Some pictures of my sharps. The larger ones are not EDC, but sometimes you need a big knife. :D

    Water bottle (I get thirsty a lot) Stainless, insulated, I like the bottle design and the size is just right for every day carry.

    Compared to this guy's storage solution, that drawer above is pretty boring...

    Nice stuff! What kind of water bottle is that? And I was wondering about your forum name. Do you work in a lab or in healthcare?

    Thanks, the bottle is from Swell (http://www.swellbottle.com/), top stuff! They have a broad range in colors ans sizes, you could easily find one to match any color alox! they are not wide mouths, but i like chiseling ice to bits with a big knife ;). They also donate a part of the (steep) price for water aid in Africa.

    And Microbe, LOL, it is just an alias and the letters accidentally spelled microbe :D. Sure my parents wanted me to be a medic, but I resisted, and am now head of webdesign in an online gaming company.

    Thanks Vesp!
    In the end, they - the laguioles - get the most pocket time. I am eyeballing one with more contemporary carbon scales check it out here, as the horn is a bit delicate. But at the moment I am in the same position then you (my wife would kill me :eek:)

    Thank you barlas!

    There is a logo on the display saying Suunto! LOL. Model Core Light Black ABC (altimeter, barometer, compass). it is now heading back to the shop afer 4 years of abuse, it gave up on me. I got the Swatch as a temporary wrist cover, it still feels very small compared to the Suunto.
    Related to the pen, I added a comment on the pen picture :)
