edc [everyday carry] shaved my wife

Recommended Posts

something that's not alkaline since those are heavier and more likely to leak and don't really want to deal with rechargeables as far as pocket carry goes.

if i'm gonna carry a bag though, i'd probably use eneloops.

Whittled me a whistle today. Fairly loud. Will be drilling a hole through the back for a lanyard. Its pretty small. Just under 2 inches long and half inch diameter. Only non-hand tool I used was a chop saw to break a tree branch into more manageable segments. I used a Gerber LMF II to baton the branch segments into smaller pieces, the knife pictured and a stanley box cutter to whittle the wood into shape, a 5/16" dowel, elmers glue, Victorinox Camper to saw dowel.

Scratchy too, I absolutely hate them. They always leave tiny ink spots on the paper, even when used on super smooth bristol board.

^They're just Rayban Wayfarer IIs w/ prescription.

is that one of those Zebra compact pens? I had one of those, hated it. Damn cap wouldn't stay attached to the back... it also wrote poorly.

That part bugs the hell out of me. But I'm sort of used to it, but not completely. It gets the job done though, writing out the bill, quick notes, writing my friends phone number on the bill, when he thinks the girl is cute. No idea if he's gotten a call back yet.

Quick tip for suicidal situations:

1) Always take it seriously, and always call the cops. They would probably get their faster than you could.

2) If you have to break in, break in. A few hundred or whatever dollars or a life?

- If you have to break a door down, kick towards the doorknob. In the movies, they kick anywhere, but that won't work. If you kick towards the doorknob area, you're in.

3) If they did take any pills, force them to drink as much milk as you can shove down their throats. As we all know, the human body cannot digest past a certain amount of milk. It will cause them to throw up everything.

Just a few tips for future references.

I use those. I feel like they write fine, but the cap thing can be annoying. I wish the little loop for keychains were made out of metal. Being plastic, it can twist around and eventually break.

I got mine from ebay. Same seller 35 posted.

But it looks like he changed his shit around.

The hook that I have, now comes with a brass chain. Kind of bummed, cuz I've been trying to find one for a while.

And the plain hooks he has, are the ones that you usually see on leather wallet braids.

Here is my current EDC.

I had a Tanner Goods Workman wallet and then I switched to my own various attempts at leather goods. Finally, at least for now I've settled with this 10$ cheapo wallet.

I also used to carry a Cold Steel Voyager but I've since given it to my gf. Thinking of getting a new blade, deciding between the Endura/Delica/Manix. Any recommendations?

Anyone who was after the key hook here: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Vintage-Multiple-FISHHOOK-Type-Motorcycle-Key-Ring-1950-/320587957754?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aa48805fa

Just email the seller, he has tons in stock, I just emailed and he re-listed one for me.

Just a heads up. Might want to put that on the blog brane?
