    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

    Simple carbon steel?

    Lidl curry stuff.

    Thread Starter: Nice65
