    Anyone have an EDC they like?

    I carry a Benchmade Valet every day. I use the clip on the back as a money clip.I like it, but wouldn't mind if the scales were a bit thinner, and it could hold an edge a bit longer too. So what do you carry?

    There's a Smith & Wesson Military & Police 'First Response' in the dash pocket that my Expedition has just below the steering wheel. If I ever do get trapped in the truck, I can reach it. I've used it at accident sites, because if I see an accident, I will call it in and triage first response. For those that don't know - if a driver is pinned or has spinal trauma turn off their ignition and if you can, cut the power lead to the car battery. I carry cable cutters in my truck too.


    I gave my previous favorite 325S Tactical Survival 'Fast Blade' to my son-in-law - navy helo mechanic - to carry when deployed.



    I opted for this no-name 440C because the hair-trigger open-assist is scary fast and the lock flawless. I don't know who made it:

    Depending on what I'm doing - roughing it camping, fishing, hunting, Q'ing - I have a slew of others specific for each occasion. There's a Pakistani Bowie, mid-size Camillus tactical, 20" Stainless kukri, and SOG hatchet in my truck all the time as my base set. Of course there's three different rods, tackle, a tent, and camping and cooking equipment back there too, in case I just get fed up and take a left.

      BourBonQ I could be gone 2 days to twenty years, it just depends on which left I take. I will say that being married > 30 years makes me appreciate that person far beyond 'spouse' - otherwise, the dog & I would be 'whereabouts unknown'. Fishing village in Chile?

    I’ve had the updated Benchmade Griptillian for almost a year now and carry it daily. Like it a lot.

      I carry a very small Case executive lockback daily at work, and now out of habit to most other places too....I need it to be discrete where I work, but I use it daily for opening boxes, packages, etc....also frequently to strip insulation from wires...occasionally to eat lunch. and every so often to open whatever I'm about to prep/cook!

          When I saw EDC like others I was thinking firearm. I carry one of two cheap similar in style to your bench made, but cheap Chinese stuff. Both came from a former employer - they gave them away at trade shows a few years back, so I don’t worry about messing them up or losing them like my nice Case pocket knives.

              texastweeter I knew what you meant. I'm looking for a bench-made Damascus out of Pakistan - no model #'s or makes involved here. But I do have a handful from one maker I do like - Rody Stan. That mini trapper below is one of his, and his operation made my chef knives. I do know enough to know who to stay clear of - other than that, the triple trapper is more important than the maker.

                  Sephon what about the hammer is a deal breaker for you? I was initially concerened keeping it in a condition one status in my pocket however over time I have become comfortible with the thimb safety and the pocket pouch I keep it in.

                  A proper holster is always important. I carry a DA only Ruger LCP with one in the chamber, but its usually riding in a Desantis Superfly in my front or back pocket. With a hammered gun in the cocked position, as long as its got a safety and decocker, and the trigger is covered by the holster, it should always be safe.

                  Jarret, I'm an IWB guy with increasing love handles. It's more of a comfort issue than DAO thing for me. And I love my G43. Carried Glocks as my duty weapon for years, I know they just work.

                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  slow n sear
                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
