    Not exactly in the mail, I went toy shopping in London today; items 1-6 are for the bathroom, 7-10 for my EDC...

    [​IMG]

    1. Taylor of Old Bond Street Travel Shaving Brush and Container
    2. Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Aftershave Lotion
    3. Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream
    4. Taylor of Old Bond Street Alum Block
    5. Taylor of Old Bond Street Merkum Super Platinum Doulble-Edged Safety Razor Blades
    6. Taylor of Old Bond Street Chrome Finish Butterfly Safety Razor and complimentary Mühle Razor Blades
    7. Victorinox Cybertool 41
    8. Victorinox spare hex bits for Cybertool 41
    9. Victorinox leather pouch for Cybertool 41
    10. Victorinox Folding nail clippers, nail file, and small screwdriver
    The extra hex bits for the Cybertool41 were obtained by pure chance; I'd gone to the Victorinox Flagship store on New Bond Street in London, and found that while they did, indeed, have a custom assembly facility, it was for one smaller specific knife format only; so, plan B, get a bigger tool. I'd already assessed the Cybertool 41 as meeting my requirements, so that was it. I asked the salesman if I could get replacement bits for the hex tool on it, should I loose any, and he asked me to wait a moment while he checked - lo and behold, there were extra sizes available in his inventory, so I asked him to get one of each that wasn't duplicated with the tool as supplied, and wound up with (read: practically snaffled up) four more double-ended bits!

    Howzzat?! :bounce:

    This week I got an extended battery for my Baofeng HT, Nagoya whip for the Baofeng, and a new programming cable for the same. I received some ExOfficio under garments, a Gordon West book to prep for the ham general test, and yesterday I bought a new Glock 43 and just ordered the Vickers extended slide stop and Bravo Concealment IWB holster which is on special with a free mag holder for said pistol. Also, my Vasque hiking boots came in today, and I'm excited to try them on later.

    This month I also bought a GORUCK Bullet, and several things from Hard Case Survival including the Solkoa tin I've posted about, a big whopping ferrocerium rod, and a CRKT Ritter RSK Mk5, and some new earphones with inline mic.

    :) June was nice.

    Sir, not only is your choice of EDC gear excellent. Your choice of grooming gear is likewise spiffing!

    Well, not exactly in the mail yet. But I am leaving it up to you guys. Some small stuff like stropping compound and some thera band is coming this way. My question is: a shiny new folder, an ontario rtak 2, or a big :censored: swedish axe. You decide

    I've always believed that my tools and truck are just as much a part of my EDC as anything on my person or in my bag... with that said, these EDC Tools are on their way:

    • Klein D210-6C flush-cut pliers w/ spring (My other half has expressed interest in learning my moonlight trade, so I've been including her on jobs lately. I'm purchasing a few tools that will be easier for her small hands to manipulate during specific tasks.)
    • Hakko CHP-170 flush-cut precision wire cutters
    • Wago lever nut assortment pack (2, 3, & 5-way) (local electrician turned me on to these... amazing)
    • Carhartt Legacy Tool Bag, 18-inch molded base, Carhartt Brown (consolidating all my jobsite sockets and wrenches into one "wrench bag")
    • Dewalt deep well 3/8" socket set
    • Wera Kraftform bottle opener (or my "5'o'clock tool" — I have several of these already from Klein, Greenlee, Craftsman, Channellock, etc... just adding to the collection)
    • Knipex 74-02-200 8" MultiGrip High Leverage Diagonal Cutters (giving these a go, heard really good things)
    • Knipex 74-08-200 8" High Leverage Diagonal Cutters, Insulated VDE (as above)

    EDC (bag or on-person) items on their way:
    • LM Wave, Black oxide (have a Charge ALX and Surge, wanted to try out the Wave)
    • Klein 32581 4-in-1 precision screwdriver

    EDC (truck) items on their way:
    • Wiha 77791 26-in-1 Technicians Ultra Driver
    • Fluke 1AC-A1-II voltage tester

    You have good taste in tools for electrical work. +1 on the lever nuts.
