Welcome to the list. Hope you enjoy the learning and communication. (And please do use mixed case when you post. It really is easier to read.)

You've listed an impressive array of blades in your EDC, but this list is about so much more than blades. So for us EDC means survival gear (which includes knives). Do you carry any survival stuff every day?

For example, I carry an augmented AMK Pocket Medic in one pocket, and an augmented AMK PSP (Doug's survival kit) in the other.

In addition to this, I carry a handkerchief, bandanna, Benchmade Griptilian or Spyderco Native, SAK Trailmaster, and have six feet of paracord in each of my shoes instead of shoelaces.

I classify survival gear into these seven groups:

Signals (including navigation)

I think I have pretty good coverage of all these areas in my EDC with the exception of shelter and food. I should probably find some way to sneak a disposable poncho or trash bag in. Food isn't such a concern, as my EDC PSK is only intended to support me for 72 hours.


PS: Bladerunner is my all-time favorite SF movie. I wish they'd remaster it some day.
No fire, no steel.

There is a director's cut out on DVD if that's what you mean by "remastered". A friend has it. I borrowed it and there are quite a few deleted scenes restored. Made the movie make a lot more sense. Great film.

... this list is about so much more than blades...

Well, not exactly ! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
this thread is precisely centered around "SHARPS" (knives and tools), used for EDC or/and Outdoors...
(if I understood correctly PAUL810's first post.)

You're right! I was too quick to criticize. Bladerunner, please accept my apology for not reading the whole thread (or even the subject) before I pontificated.


PS About Bladerunner, every version I've ever seen has a constant 1-pixel shift going on for some reason. So the picture moves through three micro-positions every second or so. It's not noticeable on a large screen, but on a computer monitor it's pretty distracting once you notice it. That's what I'm hoping they'll remaster out.

No appology required.

As Frenchy pointed out this was just a list of my EDC sharps. The rest of my EDC gear is a much longer list which is for another post. Sorry about the all caps but It takes forever for me to type with mixed case and when I'm talking about survival gear and such I get excited and want to get all of my ideas down in a hurry. I know it's considered shouting but when it's something I'm passionate about, sometimes I do shout.
Thanks for the welcome
If it was easy everyone would do it
