    So I've been thinking about some cool EDC setups and came with this idea.

    - HigoNoKami knife with brass liners
    - Brass Zippo
    - Brass Maratac AAA Light
    - Brass CC Emabssy Pen
    - Custom SAK Alox w/brass liners and clip

    At the moment I have a HigoNoKami knife and custom SAK w/brass liners and some more brass on it (on way)... I'll start looking for rest of setup...

    Too bad there is no brass MT, but I think making Wave or Charge w/brass liners wouldn't be to hard (except I have no experience in modding at all :D :D )...

    Now what I'm looking for is your oppinion on this... What do you think should be included, wallets, other pens, knives, MT's, watches, other EDC gear... It should be full or partial brass made (copper is welcome also).

    Also vintage and steampunk is welcome. So let's hear your ideas! Pics are more than welcome!! :D :pok: :pok: :cheers: :cheers: :salute: :tu:

    Pretty cool, my concern would be with the weight adding up quickly. Brass is not light! ;)

    The weight is an issue for some its true but if you love brass as a material that may trump the technicals of how it carries. That is really the case for me. Personally I find brass goes well with leather. Those are the two most common materials in my kit... here is just a sample. By the way are you sure the Maratac AAA comes in Brass, im pretty sure there is no brass embassy pen? I carry the Cu maratac, but I also use these two Peak flashlights, which I love. The Whistle is the only Atwood I have, which is a good addition to your list.

    Peak Pamir, and El Capitan

    One of these days Ill post my full kit in a new thread...if you like brass and leather and Steampunky kind of look, you will love it! I just have to perfect my kit first....so it may take some time.

    These guys are expensive, but have some great products in brass with high-end QC:

    Wooow nice setup. I like how you used key silencer/pouch.

    I agree the best combo is brass/leather, and when it's vintage and have signs of wear, it's even nicer :drool:

    IDK about Maratac, maybe you're right about Cu, but Cu also goes well with brass!

    I mentioned this in another thread. I like the look and character of old time looking things. Patina and tarnish are always good in my eyes. I'd like this set-up :

    Schraded Walden 34OT stockman
    Saddleback Leather card wallet (dark coffee brown)
    Maratac AAA copper light
    Brushed brass Zippo
    Keys with Craftsman 4way screw driver and brass clip
    Tan bandanna
    Leatherman PST when needed

    I have everthing except for the Maratac - mine is black. I don't always carry the Zippo since I don't smoke.

    Great combo... I think Buck 110 or 55 would also fit nice in this combo... I have brushed zippo on way, so I'm building up...

    It's funny you say that, as I have been looking at the Buck 55. I actually have a thread on another forum asking for opinions on it. I'd really like it if it came in carbon steel.

    As far as I know 55 and 110 are classic quality Buck knives. Though I never had one...

    Need to work on that...

    lovin that brass pen!
    i recently picked up a brass armor zippo, its just a hair thicker and heavier than the standard zippo, has a good feel to it, and they are suprizingly cheap if you look around.

    I love that nutshell phone case Gamble. I checked out their site and loved it. My issue is that I know I will outgrow my current device, any for that matter, long before the case would wear out. I wouldn't be able to live with letting such a beautiful leather piece go to waste..... How do you like yours?

    It's really great. I wish I would have waited to get the "Natural Russet" color so it could darken naturally. But it wasn't offered when I ordered mine. I recently asked customer service if they could do two pen loops. They said yes! ...so maybe that will motivate me to get another.

    I don't think I'll ever outgrow the Iphone...pretty sure I'm a customer for life...so that part wasn't a concern for me. The nutshell already outlasted mt 3gS so now I'm on to a 4 and will get the 4s when this dies in a couple years. I bet the case will still be in working order. The spring clip is of the highest quality as is the workmanship in general. I recc it highly.

    gstojinovic take some 800 grit sand paper to the fischer! they laquer it so there is no chance of a natural patina unless you sand it. It's very easy! ...still my favorite and primary edc pen

    Absolutely LOVE that key wallet. Great job using it for EDC, even though it seems obvious to use it for tools I would never have thought of it. Looks seriously gorgeous too.

    And yeah, the Maratac AAA is in copper, not brass. Although it's just been discontinued! I'm currently on a mission to find one...
