Yes, great contributions and a good way for me to see many different lights (and knives) in one forum.
Noob here and just picked up my first "real" light. EagleTac P20C2 MKII XM-L.
I'll post a pic with my EDC light/knife/CCW
Here's my EDC's (in one combination or another).
My new EagleTac P20C2 MkII XM-L and the one that started my interest (obsession?) a simple Energizer 1W LED. The knives are a Benchmade Striker (Allen Elishewitz), a Kershaw Leek (Ken Onion), and a Gerber Guardian (Loveless).
Spyderco Caly 3.5 and Quark MiNi CR2
Inova BLT-2A | Fenix LD20, LD01 | 4Sevens Quark 123 Reg, Quark RGB, ReVO SS, Preon I/II Al, MiNi CR2*3, Maelstrom X10 | Zebralight H31w, H600w | DQG Tiny II | Veleno Quantum D2
I've been here awhile and have never posted in this thread. I was at a small "meet&greet" in Cary, NC with "bondr006 & Flying Turtle" and this thread was mentioned. So here is what I carried to church a few Sundays back. I was wearing a suit and my coat over it, so I had plenty of pockets to fill.

If you open the knife, i think it will be more impressed.
Opie6, AlMar Hawk, RR Mini Canoe - HDClicky120, ZL H51, CC AAA
that is quite the arsenal you have there going to church. Just don't try that at the airport. And here is what is in my pocket today.

arc and case peanut
My first "real" flashlight from 20 years ago..now modified with a cree LED with a Rat Izula
I don't carry a knife, as the blade on my multitool suffices - plus it's easier to explain to the police who take a dim view on weapons around here.
I do, however, EDC these Titanium friends
I also prefer Multitools rather than knives
A knife is a tool. Sadly that concept is not shared in some places.

Well I finally took some pics for this thread. I dont have much invested like some of you do, I'm more of a minimalist, and actually most of my stuff have been gifts...
Here is my recent additions and my EDC's:
My Zebralight H51w and Smith & Wesson M&P... it has the super fast assisted opening
And my only other 'group' of knife and lights would be my hunting gear, my Gerber combo incandescent/blue/red bloodtracker led (it was a gift), and my two trusty folders, my Buck Pro-Line and Old Timer 194OT. Also I never head out without my Gerber folding saw. Pic shown with the bone blade on and the wood blade loose. That saw has been used to death, both on branches and bone. Couldnt find it once so bought another, now I have two complete sets.
Wanted to say also the Old Timer 194OT is by far my oldest knife. My dad gave it to me for my first knife, I think around 5th grade(?) and I'm 33 right now. It was my only knife I had since it did everything until my dad bought me the Buck knife in 2000. Between the Old Timer and Buck I've probably dressed and butchered several dozen of my deer, and a few others. When I was a kid the Old Timer always went to camp, widdled, whatever, and despite not being stainless steel has survived. Note the discoloration of the blade... unless you scrub it so hard as to polish it it tends to build up a patina over time, more so in the pic since I didnt clean it well after deer season last year and it sat on the counter dirty for... well... a year . But I like the old USA made carbon steel that you have to oil. I can get that thing razor sharp with my Lansky too. Also in jr. high I had it at summer camp and accidentally dropped it right point down onto a rock! There was a big spark and the tip was broke off.But dad carefully ground down a new tip on the big stone wheel, probably about 3/16th shorter now.
All my gear has some purpose, I rarely get anything just because its cool or whatever, and I dont have much redundant stuff either. In fact the only knife I really have ever bought was the S&W I just purchased and its my only one for 'show'. I'd EDC my Old Timer but it doesnt have a pocket clip and if I pulled it out in front of an assailant they would probably laugh. The S&W looks a little more serious and although the handle is way bulky I figure if I ever had to use it in self defense I wanted a big handle that had deep finger grooves so I could keep a grip on it in use (think also sweaty hands while jogging, not just for potential human threats but also canine). The grip on the S&W is great.
