    I carry a 1 oz. Nalgene Leakproof Bottle filled with Coconut oil - can use to add flavour to bland food, camp or travel cooking if you forget or run out of other oil, skin repair and moisturiser, lubricant, oiling blades, lip balm - super useful and versatile!

    Here's mine. An English Three Pence Piece minted in 1937 given to me by Grandmother (her birth year). I keep it on me as somewhat of a good luck charm kinda thing. I dunno, I just like having it on me, it has sentimental value :) I keep it in my wallet.

    I had to read this twice. Almost shot hot coffee out of my nose the first time.

    I hope that's a joke or a very unfortunate brand name...

    1. This prompted me to google because I never knew other animals have penis bones and clitoris bones.

    2. The fact you carry one around and play with it is very odd... Why not any other bone?

    I went to Australia many years ago, and they actually sell them as a fairly common souvenir so I picked one up.

    My late grandfather carried a half dollar in his pocket for decades. It was so worn down it looked like a plug from a junction box. I thought the idea was really cool, so I started carrying one of those gold Sacajawea US dollars from around 1999. I had it in my pocket every day for about 8 years before I lost it in a move. I found it not too long ago and started carrying it again. I hope one day to pass it on to my future grandchildren as a neat memento that nothing is permanent and time changes everything.

    How many still know what a "pipe cleaner" is?
    The ones actually made to clean pipes are the best. They contain stiff bristles. Great for cleaning all sorts of things including knives !

    In a plastic pouch that I use to hold receipts for work, I keep a P38, safety pin and about three feet of mono line. Never know when or where.

    Iso Alcohol and pipe cleaners are a smokers friend.

    You can obtain the 'real' pipe cleaners with stiffer bristles at Walgreens/Eckerds/CVS type stores, in the 'smoking section'. Usually it is with cigarettes, behind the cash out register.

    Edit - they work great for cleaning anything with nooks and crannies... like old SAKs
