jhull87 - I'm curious how you decide what to include in your EDC. You seem to carry a lot of things, including multiple knives. For me, something really has to 'earn' its way into my EDC by providing a near-daily utility. The exception is the pepper spray, for obvious reasons. Many people on this forum seem to have an EDC very much like yours, and I'm not knocking your choices in any way, but we've both thought about the minimum set of things we'd like with us and have come to different conclusions.

InquiringMind, (hopefully I quoted you right). Thanks! I've actually changed my EDC just from reading on all you guys, so thanks to everyone who has posted.

The reason I used to carry so many knives is the fact I wasn't supposed to carry a weapon at work. I figured it would be easier to explain a knife as a ''tool" than a pistol.

The main things that have changed are the flashlight- Now a Fenix E12
Knife-Beanchmade 154CM (the only one now besides the Leatherman, and the small blade on the money clip)
Leatherman- Sidekick
Keys- Now have a small pill bottle with some regular OTC meds, salt tablets, and water purification tablets. the P-38, nail clippers, and 4" landyard of 550 cord.

Started carrying my weapon at work after talking to the boss. He gave me written permission since the NC law has changed since the time the handbook was written.

I went from my Glock 23 Gen 1 to a Glock 19 Gen 3 and love the difference.

Been a little while since I updated, things have changed at work...finally got to actually carry what I want to.

Wallet- $100 cash in a vacuum sealed bag (my emergency cash and if it wasn't done that way I'd spend it lol), credit car knife (and yes a xray can see it, learned that the hard way), and one prepaid credit card with $100 on it. (I'm questioning whether this is worth it or not based on fees)

Keys- on the weekends I carry 2 sets (at work I carry others but I don't consider them my EDC). Both sets have a truck key, house key, and a P-32. One set has a Gerber clip on it. I carry them in separate pockets, and both P-32s have electrical tape around them. Not really an EDC thing but more so I don't stab myself in my pockets lol.

Weapon- I've finally decided I really don't care about what my boss says about CCW at wprk. So I carry a G19 in a Nate Tactical holster, IWB and tackable version. I can tuck my undershirt in over the holster and sill wear my Polo untucked. The G19 is 'slicked up" with a 3lb trigger, 25 cent polish job, and a lone wolf threaded barrel (BTW I have a bone to pick with them in the handgun forum).

Knives- normally during the week I carry a Gerber EAB, my Leatherman  sidekick, and a cheap Kershaw folder. When not at work, I swap the Kershaw for a ZT. And on weekends I add my MT Genius neck knife.

I'm sure there is more that I care off and on depending on where I'm going, and what I'm doing. I have little pill bottles I carry on key chains, certain boots I wear with paracord laces and fire starter in the sole, and even armor I wear going into the city...

Looking back, it's interesting how my EDC has progressed, as I'm sure everyone has in their preps.

I just started playing around with leather craft and made up a pocket organizer for some of my EDC gear.


On left is a Leatherman Freestyle, in the middle is a Fisher Space Pen and on the right is an Olight i3E flashlight.  This will live in my right front pocket.

Front left pocket:
-   The cell phone I am taking this photo with

Front right pocket:
-   Reading Glasses (when I am not wearing them)
-   Main Knife – Gerber Fullback (shown)*

Front right small “coin pocket”
-   Olight I3EEOS flashlight
-   Gerber Dime**

* My main knife is usually a Case full size trapper in Zytel Camo scales or a Victorinox Climber.

** Usually my small multi-tool is a Leatherman Squirt PS4 but I carrying the Dime because of the cap lifter (many craft brews in my neck of the woods).

(I wish I could make this show up as an image...)

Ugh, I forgot that images on Photos doesn't always work on the forums.

Here's another shot.

That other organizer was working ok, but was a bit too floppy.  I wanted something a little more rigid.  So I tried my hand at wet forming leather.  Not the best, but it's coming along.  I carry this in the same pocket as my keys, so next version will likely hold my keys as well.

You serious? This leather work is fine!

BTW,  how flexible I left is this case? Will it conform with movement,  will it print?

Thanks, but I see that the corners aren't fluid and I have a lot of tool marks.  But I'm pretty happy with it, being as I've only made a couple of things so far.

Yes, it prints on my pocket.  I put it in tool side towards my body.  That way is looks like I have a wallet or a notepad in my pocket.  But it is noticeable.

I've carried it all this week and find that while the black one was too floppy, this one is a bit too stiff.  Next version will be thinner leather so it flexes a bit.  Once leather is wet formed, it gets fairly stiff.  I'll post when I make new versions.
