    Right now and since a couple of years my city/office EDC is a Schrade Spitfire, ATS-34, Made in USA. Its is very small but also very sturdy and durable. For its size its capable of taking on a lot of different tasks.[​IMG]

    Grado SR80i's with the optional large "bowl" ear cushions (L-CUSH). I think I got them from The Headroom (headphone.com). I use these in my office. In fact, I have them on right now. :D

    Thanks man. I have to give Boyo credit for the bead. The little skull is great for all the little digging you don't want to use your blade for.

    If I may ask, why did you mod the clip?

    Your question is welcome.
    I didn't like the longish stainless steel pocket clip that came standard. Having H.E.S.T. plastered on the clip can be an invitation for curious eyes to read. Additionally, the shorter clip feels more comfortable and is less intrusive on the overall grip.
    My answer was to get a generic Titanium clip from USAKnifemakers and use that to fashion a much shorter lighter and comfortable one.
    The trickiest part for me was the need to heat the 6AL4V Titanium alloy as the 90° bends would break at room temperature.
    This is the first fit-up for trial use. It seems robust and with a slightly adjusted tip it mouthes the pocket without catching on the clip lip.
    It still needs some finishing so will probably try a stone wash to get it closer to the frame locking scale.
    The pic shows the leftover cutoff original hole attachment being used as a spreader beam for TEC P-7 Clip hanging onto a Quantum DD with spare battery case.

    LOL I have the same pair, I had to take second look at the other picture again,I was mistaking the PRESTIGE with some kind of TGIF version or something. BTW nice Head-Fi set up, Head-Fi is my other way to make sure I have no money in the bank.
