I delt with this issue in a bit of utter and sheer brilliance you can find here . To this day, I sit in meetings with stuffy banker types, my EDC in full view (including now a Leatheman Wave), and no one bats an eye. I am nothing, if not modest.

Note: Pacify your EDC before entering a Federal building or getting on a plane. Some folks, folks who have arrest powers, just do not understand the notion of preparedness.

Hope this helps,

Go get yourself a Leatherman Juice and the leather or plastic sheath, it is a more people friendly multi-tool then he wave and such. The only bad thing is the tools don't lock, so it is basically a SAK, but still very capable.

I can understand people being nervous when confronted with a big ol' bowie in a sheath. I can even understand why a big folder might give some the jitters. But a Wave? I currently pocket carry mine but when I get my new RSK I will probably switch to a sheath. I don't think any of the people I currently work with will be nervous, but if they are they will just have to get over it. Consider it educating the masses and thus a public service. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Ironically I do carry a large folder clipped to my right front pocket. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Probably the best advice of all. At least until august when I begin working in a severely "restricted" area. Then I will have a whole new host of EDC issues but I'll cross that bridge (and start another thread) when I come to it.

I carry a multitool and a Buck Crosslock on my belt in plain view. Most of my coworkers are quite odd as they don?t. I don?t ridcule them for their oddness though <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />. Their comments gradually faded out as they discovered that I didn?t care and having made a snide comment is no good position to ask for help involving said tool.

Brian,

I carry a P4 Squirt on a keyring, and have my RSK clipped to a safety pin in my front pocket. Nobody at work knows it's there. My Wave stays close by in my briefcase. Attracting unwanted attention in a gossipy office is not a good idea in this PC world.
