    I have a Flickr set with all these pictures in it with notes (plus "In Bag" pictures). That's the better way to view these. I'll still embed the pics though.

    Flickr really needs to add "BB Code" to their "Share" list...

    On person EDC. Sorry for the blur...
    Pen, Pencil, Sharpie, Jacket
    Keys, Palm Treo phone, Leatherman Charge TTi
    Bic Lighter, Folding Mat Knife, Minimag, Zebra F-301 Pen, Wallet (bandaids inside), Student ID wallet

    The folding mat knife is my loaner. I got it after I loaned my Leatherman to someone and it came back dull and with several chips out of the blade. I have yet to have the blade repaired. I'm thinking about getting a Spyderco Tenacious to EDC (not sure where I'd carry it though haha). I'm also trying to decide on a new flashlight. There's a debate going on here: http://edcforums.com/index.php?topic=32810

    I use the power tools that the shop provides right now. I do plan on getting my own in the near future though (no more dead drills for me).

    You should get a multitool for you huge bag of tools. I know you have pliers andscrewdrivers but knife and scissors you don't have in there. I suggest a swisstool x or rs

    I don't have a multitool for my bag because I always have my Charge TTi on my belt. I have all the separate tools because sometimes I need to do hard jobs with them, and it's a lot cheaper to replace a $2 pair of Lineman's pliers, than to pack up and ship off my Leatherman. Now that you mention it I don't have a pair of scissors. I'll look at getting a MT for my bag. That SOG looks cool, but I'm also thinking about a LM Wave.

    A lot of this has changed (what with Christmas and stuff) so I need to take new pictures.(I've switched to a backpack, new wallet, new pens, new tools)
