Discovering this forum is one of the best turns in the last few months. I mean, where else can I find a whole COMMUNITY of junkies for well-made flashlights, knives, multitools, bags and other assorted "to-die-for" gear that have the magical ability to empty our wallets faster than you can say E-D-C? A big hello from someone halfway around the world who never fails to draw a "WOW!!! that's a bright torch you've there", only to be followed by the inevitably wide-eyed "You COLLECT flashlights??? Knives even??? Multitools???..." Thank God most of them trail off at that... Don't have a collection approaching most of the regulars here but ppl can dream rite? Really enjoy devouring the posts on the forum, esp. the pictures!!! Man, someday I wish I can afford a Sebbie clipped in my pocket. My only complaint: Too many posts to go through them all! This is really a vibrant community. It's GR8 knowing I'm not the only weirdo around with a, to put it mildly, "interesting" hobby. Perhaps the best compliment I can pay EDCF is you're now on my Bookmark toolbar! Though my wallet will certainly find that difficult to stomach but I digress... Any other Singapore-based EDCFers? And yes, I do reminisce mid-west weather. Back home, its 90 and above all year round. At least you guys get to see the leaves change color come fall. Bill. P.S.: Ni Hao Ma is the romanized Chinese phrase for the ubiquitous American greeting: How're you doing?
