edc [everyday carry] shaved my wife

Recommended Posts

I got lucky and made it onto Michael Burch's order book. So when my name comes up, I can have him build whatever I want. I'm thinking mammoth ivory and damascus...

Double post for thread revival?

Same friend introduced me to the Maxpedition bottle holder and it's freakin' perfect for my EDC needs including gym time. I plan to carry it while traveling overseas too while out exploring.

Super modular, I added the shock cord and also added another "cocoon" pouch to the side (not pictured). Really like that it carries my nalgene, keys, pocket for passport/field notes, light, keys, knife, etc.

outlier ftw. What do you own of theirs?

New thingies. Spyderco P'kal and trainer. I'm taking Shivworks EWO this weekend, really looking forward to it. If you ever get the opportunity to take a class from him do it, his MUC (managing unknown contacts) course is is relevant to everyone. http://shivworks.com/?page_id=881

Don't know if this is everyone's thing, but I love fixed blades. Also, if any of you have one of Jerry's knives you know how quality they are. I'll definitely be getting my hands on one of these.

Tigerprawn, good looks on that Maxpedition bottle holder. I love how it carries all the essentials for everyday use.

Looks nice. Been thinking of getting just a smallish blade. Stopped EDCing a blade for a while after I got tired of carrying my para2 every day. Thinking maybe a spyderco cat but I feel like the handle is overbuilt for the blade size.

the dude seems nice, i just wish these knife dudes would get to the point instead of blabbering on for 15 minutes.

check out stephen schmalhaus knife reviews. theyre well crafted and researched, and he's got great taste in knifes. at least in my opinion. in any case, theyre well made and interesting videos.

schmalhaus has the best knife reviews

watching his videos is the closest i get to having a vacation

i've got a Compagnon by Chambriard in ebony (i am referring to his review upthread) and it is really a great knife for the money

as far as french regional knives go, i most recently picked up a basque yatagan by thiers issard with a ram's horn handle. it is even larger than the Compagnon. but it is really pleasure to hold and use. unfortunately, the "pocentage" isn't great and the knife blade is really close to the backspring when closed, so you have to take unusual care in closing it. there's no room to even wedge a bit of cork in there. so yeah, the tip is a bit rounded off and blunt. with the Compagnon, i did manage to wedge some cork against the backspring to prevent the tip from dulling. probably not necessary but gives peace of mind. i don't know why other french cutlers haven't resolved that issue like fontenille pataud has.

i am talking with someone from Sardinia who will be procuring my first resolza, a friction folder. i am looking forward to this one...

my spyderco bug somehow broke today - is there anything similar i can get in size/weight? the only thing i've seen that's close is a sog micron. would a boker keycom be too big for a keychain worn on my beltloop?

Nothing will compare to the Bug, really.

 

Do you not want to get another bug because this one broke?

correct - that and i can't find one for less than $20 shipped to australia. even if i could, i'm disappointed it broke after less than a year of semi-regular use. maybe i should go back to a small SAK, even though it annoys me when i lose the tweezers due to them always falling out.

conq - where/how do you get locking folders in the country now with all the crazy knife legislation they've brought in in the last few years?
