    Wanted to do this for a long time and kept putting it off but so, here goes. Bit of an underwhelming start but this is "everyday" carry, everyday life is underwhelming from time to time right? So, im keepin it real. Fo sho.

    Tonight im in the cave/shop painting stuff for work and no pockets. This is what i came up with, been trying not to splash it with paint, knife got a few spots but thats just additional character :D

    Forgot to cut the tag on this, my Maxfad died off quickly even before reading up on their "tactics". I got it ways back before i found this here place and its bulky, uncomfortable and rides like its going to come off at any second. I do not recommend this product for any other occasion than "im too lazy to change pants", it simply wont stay in place.

    Only mp thing that sees use is my gear retractor that keeps me from locking myself out of my house. Even the fatboy is too much fuss for small rewards imho.

    This thread is going to be more than strict EDc, also nice gadgets and general photos, stuff, thingamajigs etc. Y'know?

    Sounds like a plan to me. I think folks around here just like to see pics of cool stuff. It's crazy to think of how far away that wallet is.

    It is a cool username, but I'm not even going to post for fear it is the real Ministry of Truth and I don't want to pop up on big brother's radar. PS- I too really like the wallet.

    Oh, poo! I just posted. Better run and hide.

    I'm basically the same, besides general purpose of monitoring for Ye Large Sibling (no special acronym).

    And the wallet is great, holds the cards very well and rides well in pockets and compartments. Also no mess, my old billfolder kept vandalizing notebooks, papers etc. Its a fair distance, it was a bit homesick so i took it to look at where the Atlantic meets the Baltic and its all good now :)

    Pocket dump from "early" this morning, after a good friends wedding. Sorry for the shoddy quality but i felt it was due for upload. I could still walk but not in a straight line, still decided to try a dump-pic :)

    Just make sure you have plenty of light when shooting pics with your phone. And take a couple and pick the best one.
    By the way, how do you like your Böker access tool?

    You're absolutely right, its just that the only good light i have is in the kitchen and horribly placed so either you get the pile of dishes in the background or its all a game of shadows. I was hoping to finally start using my nikon a bit more often, feel stupid having a nice machine just sitting around :)

    I like it a lot! Especially for the two things i've used it for the most, that is opening cans of paint and opening bottles.
    Its minimalist enough for keychain duty but lacks a dedicated bit-slot IMHO.
    Are you considering getting one?

    Its a bit fidgety to pull nails with but its ok, works great for small screws, larger ones tend to get all chewed for me. Havent tried using the middle hole to twist nuts or bits, cant really say anything there. Glass breaker is, thank heavens, as of yet unused - but im glad its there should the need arise!
    The carabiner style spring is very practical, and just a tad too hard so it wont unhook by mistake, but its not easy to unhook it on purpose either.
    I was considering swithcing it up for the bulkier Schrade tool wich has more options, but i gotta figure out how to attach it without adding even more bulk or lenght. The Böker fits most of my few needs for now.

    Keychains have two rules with me: as small as possible and no carving holes in my thighs or pockets. My first tries with the Schrade were discouraging.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with the Böker!
    Yes, I am considering one. The only thing keeping me from buying one is the price tag. 40$ is a bit steep just to try something. At least, that's my opinion.

    Anytime bro!
    Yeah i agree, its not cheap!
    I got a little carried away when i first discovered prytools (bought this one and the Schrade at the same time) but i just knew i'd be using it daily and also save my knife tips and keys. Also, i've yet to be disproven in the "put the money on quality materials you enjoy" so for me it was totally worth it.

    I mean to beat the living :censored: out of it since i figure its made for work and just the time i save by never looking around for a screwdriver or unfolding the MT is worth it. Reduces work time and clutter :)

    As previously seen in the "ultralight" thread, todays incarnation of edc.
    Might switch the knife later as i'm in for some carpentry :)

    Living in an urban area with a strangely high density of pharmacies and a fairly good ambulance response time, in the summertime i keep my carry to a skeleton OPC (as above but also phone and wallet) with variations adding stuff i knowlingly need or something i might need.
