    I've taken to carrying a lock of my dog's hair that was snipped off of him after we had to let him pass on a couple weeks ago. One of the hardest things in my life and I can't imagine being without him on even this rudimentry level. Ryan

    I've wore the same bracelet for more than 12 years now not once I've taken it off, cause it just cant! Me and 12 of my cousins got it at some tribal folks in a small town in the Philippines they were selling it on the roadside, and now there's only 3 of us who still have 'em. I guess this is my longest running EDC...

    The bracelet is made out of Ivory beads that is attached to a paracord like rope!!!

    A silver St George's medal. Patron saint of soldiers. My wife gave it to me while we were dating. It's all grimey now, though.

    I've carried a $2 bill in my wallet for years. I tell myself that as long as I have that, I'm not broke, and it motivates me to believe that I can always find a way of getting by without spending it.

    I have a few, all linked to my wife.
    First is a penny from St. Simons island (off of Georgia) we each put a penny in one of those machines that flattens and stamps a penny into a keepsake. Its from when we got married ala justice of the peace in the salt marshes on the island. We both wanted to get married, but couldn't afford a "real" ceremony. Her parents don't approve of me so there was no way they were gonna help out. The others are two Bahamian one dollar bills and a gift coin from out first annivesary.

    I just got a custom made ring with that phrase (in Hebrew) engraved on it from an Etsy seller. The inner band freely rotates around the outer band. It serves the same purpose, and it also gives me something to fidget with when I'm bored.

    I carry a pebble. It's about a 2" circle and 1/2" thick. I have used it as a small sharpening stone, but it's just something to play with. :)

    I've had it for 5 or 6 years.

    I have several. In my left trouser pocket I have an l8l2 British penny with a hole punched in it; it had belonged to my dad for over 60 years. On the ring finger of my right hand I have a silver ring made of a lucky l925 sixpence. On my keyring rides my old dog tag from Vietnam. Round my neck, centered on the chain that holds the sheath for my CRKT N.E.C.K. is a silver crucifix that has been touched to a relic of the True Cross of Christ. And the three luckiest charms of all, my three EDC knives: a Benchmade balisong, an Applegate Fairbairn Mini Covert, and that CRKT neck. Whew that's a lotta stuff! Oh yes, how could I forget? I have a pocket rosary (the flat metal kind) in a side pocket of my wallet. :woohoo:

    I've added a simple paracord fob to my keychain - it was my 6 year old son's first attempt at a snake sinnet. I'm thrilled that he's interested in knot tying and proud of his good work. I smile every time I see it. :buckteeth:
