    So i've been watching Alton Brown's travel show Feasting on Asphalt this weekend. So far I've seen about 5 EDC type items being used. I wonder if Alton is a reader of the forums? Here is a pic of him pulling out some sort of machete from his gear to make a grill out of willow reeds. Can anyone identify the blade?

    Some more blades on the show. He has some others tools and biner clips attached but I didn't get a picture of those.

    Big Alton Brown fan here. I watched those same episodes last night! :)

    AFAIK, the one in the bottom pic is a Zero Tolerance of some sort.

    That is a Kershaw Outcast.
    Since his endorsement of Shun cutlery, all I've seen on Good Eats and Feasting On Asphalt are Kershaw/ Shun knives.

    yeah, no doubt an outcast....not a bad chopper for its size, but the rubber grip makes your hand sweat in very little time :rolleyes:

    As I'm sitting here typing now in my cordless headphones Good Eats is running between my ears. Plenty of room up there for it. :lolhammer:

    Alton does seem to show up with some cool gear. Does anyone have a source for dinosaur headed squirt bottles? They are about impossible to find.

    Folder looks like a kershaw blur with the silver G-10 handles, yes?

    You guys are awesome. I love that show and had been wondering what he was carrying.

    I remember in the peach show it looked like he used an auto. Any thoughts?

    Could have been a Kershaw assisted opener, the action could be mistaken for an auto. Was it out the front or out the side?

    Zero Tolerance is putting out automatics now. Wonder if Alton will be sporting one of those in the future....


    Yup, that's the one.

    Alton, if you're here, just raise your hand. We won't bug you for an autograph. You'll feel a whole better if you step out from behind your avatar...
