Looks like a gerber clutch, ferrocerium rod and striker, led light and....something-is that a whistle?

That black thing is a Small Swiss tool. the blue tool is a leatherman micra, the knife is an Anza custom made. Made in El Cajon,Ca. from a file. All of the other knifes are also Anza's. I do like carbon steel knifes. The lanyard is braided 550 parachute cord with two fisherman knots that allow it to expand if it get hung up on something, then all I have to do is duck out of it.

Stretch, is that a 210TK? If so I have been eying that for awhile. Obviously it wears well, what do you think of it otherwise? Worth the price? How is the handle? Any idea what the TK is a good deal more than the base 210?

Thanks!

I'm with you, Jim, nothing around my neck, except the MAN dragging me down......
Just kidding, but it is one of the reasons I never cottoned to the neckwear Ranger Rick stuff. I would rather have lots of stuff in pockets.

Yes, a 210TK. It's a fine knife, S30V steel, and the G10/Carbon Fiber scales are beautiful. The sheath has an adjustable tension screw with a small, O-ring washer, which I took out and sanded down for more tension. It costs more than the 210 because of the scales I think, and maybe the S30V versus D2 steel. I'd say it was worth the price. I use it for utility - cutting whatever needs to be cut.

I should have read the question more closely - I don't EDC anything. I carry a whistle, P-51 and LED light on paracord when I *hike*.

big_al, that looks like good stuff. I don't suppose you've got a bigger photo, do you? My eyes can't quite make everything out. I'm particularly interested in the striker since that's my first priority to add to my ensemble.

I do not wear this, but it has been laying around.
From left to right:
Saw blade striker, ferrocerium, magnifying plastic lens and tick remover, cable loop, Sliver Gripper, botany 10X lens, photon covert red, lock picks, nail clipper and P38, 2 extra loops, and a CountyComm wedge.
I'll probably add a whistle and one of two compasses on a release clip. THIS is why the two compasses.
