. . . but the curiosity remains...

Create a topic about it in the CPF Underground.

However, do not be surprised if you get very few responses. It's not because defenders feel ashamed for having defended themselves. It's because such a thing is going to be an extremely horrific event in someone's life. Like similar events, folks don't like talking about it in detail.

Looking into those Defensive Carry forums now.
Thanks for the tip.

Ontopic:
Another EDC I forgot to mention is a bicycle repair kit in my EDC backpack, since I do my daily traveling on a bicycle.

Not including my tool belt, at work I carry a PD31, a Zebra F301 and a 7/16th wrench (on my keys at all times)

My EDC is a SWM V10R, a Pilot V5 and a Spyderco Persistance (plus wallet and phone). In my wallet is a band-aid or two and some Pepto chewables (sometimes you just never know...and it's worse than a headache). On my keys are an E01 and a Victorinox Waiter.

If I grab my backpack I have a Victorinox Hunstman, a Surefire 6P with NB SST-50 or a Q 1232 Turbo X, a change of clothes, bandaids, chewables, Excedrin, and 4 CR123's.

It can vary a bit based on what I am doing and wearing for the day's activities such as on the weekends, but here is a normal work-day pocket dump.


Wallet, iPhone, Keys (with E01 and SOG Micron Tanto), ChapStick, CRKT Edgie, McGizmo Haiku XP-G, McGizmo Ti Mule XM-L, Atwood Pest, Festina Sub Diver


I also have a BoB in the trunk of my car with a bunch of other general preparedness gear, but we won't go there. This is just a Pocket EDC thread. :grin2:

I'm pleased to see the selection of watches! I wonder, though, as I have before, what many of you do for a living. Obviously certain professions are more suitable for carrying gear. I would love to carry a multitool, a knife, a thumb drive, and even my cell phone, but all those are either prohibited or would look a bit silly in a pair of khakis. (I do have a multitool and a knife, as well as a bigger flashlight, in my desk.) I make do with my wallet, keys (with a Klarus Mi X6), pill case, and a Sunwayman V10R Ti. And of course one of my watches.

Fun thread. Keep the photos coming. It's interesting to see what you guys have.

I live and work in a big city, so there are many things that I can't or shouldn't EDC.

Below is what I carry with me everyday.
What's missing: iPhone, wallet, smoke hood (in office), and first aid kit (in office).


Watches: I alternate them depending on what I wear.

Pocket Knife: I once carried a small Benchmade folding knife and my coworkers had the most uncomfortable look. Since then I carried either the Case Sowbelly or Lone Wolf knife. Sometimes I would carry a Swiss Army Knife (not shown).

Flashlight (Main): I just picked up the HDS Rotary, so now it's part of my rotation along with my Milky modded Surefire L1

Flashlight (Necklace): The only one I have is the Photon Fanatic La Petite Killer. I've been wearing this for the last two years.

Flashlight (Keychain): I alternate among McGizmo Sapphire, Peak Eiger #2 and iTP A3 Titanium. The McGizmo Sapphire has become even more useful now that I've added QTC to it.

Miscellaneous: The Kershaw Two-Can is an awesome pair of scissors that I use quite frequently. I've used the damascus screwdriver for light duty screwing / unscrewing and prying. The titanium whistle is quite loud. I haven't used it for emergency yet, but it's there when I need it.

I tend to rotate through what I carry daily pretty often. Sometimes, I'll carry more than one of these items simultaneously as well. However, what I've usually got on me:

Watch: Seiko 5 Military Automatic
Phone: iPhone 4
Light: One of: L1, HDS Rotary, or High CRI Haiku. Depending on what I'm doing at work, this may also include a Zebralight H501w
Knife: One of: Opinel No. 8, Victorinox Traveller Lite, or Leatherman PSTII. The Leatherman doubles up with one of the other two more often than not.

In my EDC bag, I've got anything from above which isn't on my person, as well as: a modest first aid kit, spare CR123s, as well as an E2E with Veleno dropin, which can run the included 17670s, or on the CR123s.

Not really good at posting pictures.

The one light that is in my shirt pocket all the time is a Xeno E03.
I carry a little Kershaw spring loaded folder.
And depending on the day, one of my two AA lights.

Sometimes I carry my M&P 340 instead of my 1911 off duty if I don't feel like hauling old slabsides along. The knives often change and if im working nights I will probably be carrying my Surefire M3 with LF HOLA running off of Lith Ions instead of the C2.

Wallet
Keys with a lighthound freebie squeeze light
Zen MP3 player
Razor knife, that way I can abuse the blade and not wince
Spyderco Lum Chinese folder, for more mundane cutting tasks
A phone if I remember, some craptacular LG touch screen POS
I hardly ever wear a watch as my job would destroy it in days, when I do its a Seiko dive watch

I carry a tool bag around with me, catch all sorts of grief for it, but when someone needs something.....who do they come running too?

Call me boring, Arc AAA and a SOG Flash I.

Impressive kits you all carry. I hope you don't work around open water!
