    Default EDC - What's in Your Pocket(s)?? Third Edition

    Continued From EDC - What's in Your Pocket(s)?? Second Edition


    Yaesu VX-170-2 Meter Handie Talkie. Ham Radio Ops.

    Incandesent Mini Maglite w/ Xenon bulbs. Backup EDC flashlight

    LED Mini Maglite w/ Multi-Mode Switch. Primary EDC flashlight.

    Gerber Suspension Multi-tool. Get most things done.

    Premier Blades tactical knife w/ seatbelt cutter and window smasher. Protection from various people and things.

    Victorinox Recruit w/ Aluminum Handle. Good to go with my incandescent Mini Maglite.

    Incandescent 2C Cell Maglite. Good when going through dangerous neighborhoods day or night.

    *UPDATE*

    The only instrument I still carry out of all of those is my Black Incandescent Mini Maglite. I am getting out of amateur radio (I will continue to renew my license so I can legally use a scanner nationwide.) Needless to say; I no longer carry the VX-170. My Gerber Suspension is in my tool satchel. I gave my 2C Cell Maglite to my dad during Hurricane Issac. I keep my Victorinox Recruit in the kitchen drawer and it is my can opener. The tactical Premier knife is broken, but I still have it. My Blue Multi Mode Mini Maglite is in storage. I have an edc bag that I have my devices in. It is a SwissGear Backpack that came out in 2011. In that bag; I have another Incandescent (Blue) Mini Maglite and a Black Mini Maglite Pro as my other two edc flashlights. Those flashlights are carried in my pocket as needed. In my bag; I also carry my new EDC calculator, a 2013 TI 30XA. I wear a Casio MRW200H-2BV Watch. In my pockets I usually have one of those three flashlights and a Pantech Link P7040.

    Here's mine...everything pictured carried daily.

    Victorinox Explorer Plus
    Spyderco Delica 4
    Fenix E15
    Fisher Bullet (small Moleskine in space on back of wallet)
    Lexar Echo USB Drive 16gb
    Split Pea Lighter
    ACR WW-3 Whistle
    Not pictured is my cell phone.

    Generally wear cargo pants at work and at play, so distributing the items throughout the pockets isn't a problem, and for the most part I can't even tell they're there. Pen, USB, flashlight, and SAK get used a lot. Whistle and lighter not so much, but they are so small I figure I have them if needed. I use the whistle more often than I would have expected.

    Thanks. As SRacer2000 pointed out, it's a Lamy Pico, LAMY pico pearlchrom Ballpoint pen to be exact. A very convenient retractable pen.

    to Kramer5150 --

    Ah yes, i bought those (original) Gerber Multi-Pliers, in 12/1993.


    I discovered they have a NASTY HABIT of PINCHING the heel of my hand ! ! !


    Every Single Time I would use them ! ! !


    __


    Very Painful, indeed ! ! !


    Just curious -- have you experienced the same fate ? ? ?

    Hmm no I dont think its ever pinched me before. It was a nice tool for at the time, but there are better ones now. I stowe it in my mountain bike emergency kit. I have used it a few times for repairs on the trails, and camping during the 90s. But other than that its basically brand new. Its kind of loose and sloppy feeling, part tolerances are not very tight overall, and a needle nose would have been more useful for me personally. Thats really my only complaint with it. But it is cool flipping it "open". Can't do that with my leatherman.

    I had the same Gerber tool and it raised a painful blood blister when its zero-clearance handles pinched my palm. I sold the multitool and haven't bought a Gerber multitool since then.

    I had one of those Gerber multitools back in 1995, and the very first time I used it, it bit me good. If I didn't make a conscious effort not to get bit, I'd get bit. Still, I liked it at the time. Turned up missing a few years later.

    I have always found the pliers it a bit awkward to use. Like the handles are way too close together, so it forces me to grip and squeeze it using the ends of my fingers. This places it out, farther away from my palm. If I don't hold it this way, it can pinch. But its never pinched me before, and no multi-tool can ever really replace good purpose build pliers. The blade doesn't lock either... thats one more complaint.

    I think its a cool piece to keep around though just for sentimental reasons. It was a gift from my parents when I was a late-teen, and I pack carried it a lot in the 90s and early part of 2000. I would pack carry it with my canteen and the used/dented mess kit I bought from the surplus store on camping trips. Thats all I had... its all I could afford back then. My friends all had USMC Ka-bars that they lent me whenever I needed something for heavier cutting jobs, but I almost always made due with the gerber tool.

    And it is Made in USA. I think around this time Gerber started to out-source most of their production to China/Asia. Lets AVOID a big USA-China debate, as that will lock this thread in a heartbeat, I'm just citing a unique aspect if this tool that you can't buy today.

    So using a tool like this brings back memories for me, and it is a bit of an antique... it goes beyond anything technical. It was designed, manufactured and patented on North American soil.
