    OK, ok: I've been lurking about and Even Posting since I joined a couple weeks ago, without ever introducing myself.

    Like many of you, I didn't know I had 'an EDC problem' until I found the forum, and having an EDC problem is OK with me. I think that everyone needs a little conflict in their lives, and if I have a hard time choosing between the Zippo and the Peanut, or whether a Spydy is necessary if I've got the LMNewWave along, well, then that gives me something to struggle with. And since there's no woman in my life (a town that seems to draw all manner of damaged people, and is also very tolerant of those with varying sexual orientations, is not the best place to be straight & single), well, it's either EDC or a pet.

    So... I used to feel guilty about liking finely made tools, and carrying them, and using them, but I finally outgrew my upbringing and now look forward to another package in the mail (tomorrow? the Leatherman gods smile upon me) (and I'm smiling back already in anticipation). I just try to keep a low profile about it; I'm not trying to convert people, I just find great pleasure in well-made tools (what others call 'toys' because their obsessions don't align with mine; one of my coworkers is obsessed with yarn, FCOL). They are a comfort to me.

    OK, that's my story. Thanks for having me, and now I'm going to post whenever & wherever I think I can contribute without feeling like I'm barking from behind a fence.

    Welcome to EDCF! It's good to have you here! :)

    Go for it! A dedicated folder is much more convenient than the blade on a LM Wave. Spydies are made of a much better steel, too.
