    What EDC are you carrying today?

    Thread Starter: avoidspam

    Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) Sam

    Dropped my favourite watch

    Thread Starter: bagman

    I traded a Glycine Combat 7 here a few more months ago, superb watch with a very clear face. It's been my main non-work watch since I received it. It's usually on an old school light grey RAF style NATO that's very soft and flexible but makes it easy to slip through the fingers. A couple...

    New chap from the Mid Wales hills

    knifeless LM?

    Thread Starter: oxford_guy

    I have a question about the Leatherman Knifeless Rebar - could you get into trouble in the UK over the locking awl and/or saw still? Or even the scissors, as they lock out too. I currently have a Knifeless Fuse, which has neither awl nor saw (though does have scissors that lock out), but was...
