    This could be in a bag, you car, or on your person. In my bag, it has to be handmade all natural non-fragranced dreadlock shampoo. In my car, chemistry beakers that are kept in a Pelican 1550 case. I don't carry many things that I wouldn't suspect other people to carry on their person. Well, I do carry a #22 scalpel blade, sterilized and packaged, in my wallet. Anybody else carry anything odd?

    Depends on how you think about it. Like newtothis said, we all have unique driver's licences, but on the other hand, nearly everyone has one. Same goes for wedding rings and prescription glasses and a lot of other things. Heck, even the paper money in your wallet is supposed to have unique serial numbers, but that doesn't mean they are anything special.

    I can't really think of anything right now. I have some oddities in the closet that might make the claim, but to be honest, I don't really carry them every day. My normal stuff is pretty normal, I guess. Well, at least on this forum...

    Ah, man, you destroyed my punchline. I was going to write "picture of my fiancé".

    I do carry a 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube, filled with my emergeny antihistamine drops. It was the only small, leakproof, 100% chem resistant / inert container I could find. Plus, 1.3 ml is exactly the standard dose that'll prevent my from going into an anaphylactic shock, should I have a close encounter with the wrong bee.

    Thor's Hammer pendant around my neck on a paracord covered beaded chain. And a hand carved rune in my RF pocket. All day every day.

    I always keep a $2 bill in my wallet. I'm sure others might carry one of these too, though.

    For many years I carried a handcuff "Shim" for picking handcuffs.

    Why you ask ?

    I don't blame you for asking, I would have.

    Many years ago while wrestling w/a robbery suspect, my partner grabbed my hinge cuffs from my belt and tried to cuff the suspect, after several minutes of ground fighting he ended up w/ my chain cuffs on the correct way and my hinge cuff both on one wrist with he keyholes together. When I asked my partner why he thought that was a good idea he just shrugged. Only way to get them off was the shim.

    I carry a Go-En, a Japanese 5 Yen coin in my wallet. It is supposed to be a good luck thing, but when I travel to Japan with my buddies, we always spend the old coin and select a newer one from our change and carry that coin, til the next trip.

    Glad to see someone else here wears a Mjolnir! Mine is the Icelandic version, with the dragon head. My buddy from Kopavogi brought it out for me. Are you Asa Tru? :highfive:

    Licorice root! Got hooked on a school trip to Williamsburg in the 7th grade. Absolute life-saver when I quit smoking 7-1/2 years ago.

    Interesting you should ask .. Most of us here carry unique and different items everyday that most people don't ..
    Some [allot] of those are also unique and hand crafted .. KNIFES/FLASHLIGHTS/TOOLS Etc. ..
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I have posted this many times because it is unique/one of a kind/ and hand crafted by 3 different craftsman ..
    The 'skull' is carved from roadkill dear antler, the 'pick' was made years ago by a machinist ..
    and the sheath was made by me .. 'Mr. Pokey' is used almost every day in many ways ..

    This also brings to mind that sometimes I intentaily leave where i'm living with nothing but my cigarette lighter and some change ..
    It some how brings a feeling of freedom and weightlessness .. Then I turn around to go back and gear up ASAP !!!

    BE WELL .. GH
