The work stuff doesn't change, so I have to get creative. It's the same knife and light, posted in two different threads. I'm only doing this once. Unless I can figure out how to stand the Alox up on it's narrow side.
I don't have a photo of it and I'll try to remember to get one... The knife I often EDC is an old Girl Scout Knife (that's right... even Girl Scouts carried knives back in the good ol' days) made by Kutmaster in Utica, NY.
I live in a rural area, but close to a popular lakefront summer vacation community. There have been plenty of times when a knife was needed by myself or someone else and I've pulled out the Benchmade, Spyderco, ZT, or other modern knife I was EDC'ing. The response from some of the non-locals is often something like "Whoa... you carry a KNIFE?" or "Why do you need a pocket knife that big?!"
If it's the Girls Scout Knife, I ask them why they're afraid of a knife that was intended to be carried by young girls...
Clockwise, from top-right:
1.) RAT, Model II (my 'Goldilocks' EDC knife; fits my hand juuuust right)
2.) SOG Twitch II (my 'backup' EDC knife; a little too small for my hands, and the controls are non-intuitive to me)
3.) SOG Flash II (I wanted so badly to like this knife, but couldn't; it's a little too big for my hands/pocket, so it mostly stays in the truck)
4.) some random Husky light I picked up at some point (my backup)
?.) conspicuously absent from this photo is my SureFire E2E Executive Elite (my EDC light for about a decade, recently lost/misplaced)
