    hi

    I live in the city, so for me to carry a Wilderness EDC is probably not too logical. What do you carry for your Urban EDC?

    Mine currently is flash light, pocket knife, nail clipper, 16gb thumbdrive

    Which leather man is that? I carry a sidekick. IMHO one of the most straight forward multi tools that they make. I love it.

    It is the leatherman wave, I have a sidekick but it does not see any action. I have to have locking tools.

    We're not allowed to carry at my work (even us managers; our GM pleaded the case but for some reason the owner doesn't want us to be armed at work.) I work at a BBQ restaurant so we have plenty of access to large chef knives and slicers of all sorts. I also always have a Husky folding box cutter that I need for work, so it's always clipped in my back pocket. Besides that, I carry my Gerber Paratrooper Mini folding knife. When they say mini they mean it, but this makes it extremely low weight and it doesn't take up much room in my pocket. Here's both and a Dr Pepper bottle cap for scale.

    I'm looking into a slightly larger folder for EDC but some knife is better than no knife. The Para-Mini is really good when I'm out training in sweatpants an the like so it will still be in my rotation. Sucker is quite sharp.

    i carry the Coast LX240 knife at all times, in my back left pocket.

    Survival Card w/ Fire Starter/Light from tool logic in my wallet, except the fire steel fell off.

    which brings me to the Bear Grylls survival belt that has a zipper on the side (which doesnt work) it has a mirror and i took out the fishing kit, and replaced it with some matches and a matches striker.

    para-cord bracelet on the right wrist, and a watch on the left wrist.

    I want a paracord bracelet but I'm afraid it would get all nasty at my job. I'm going to look into the survival card, that sounds cool.

    Awls are used primarily for punching holes in things like leather or heavy cloth. Or maybe skulls?

    What is that folder? I've never seen one that folds outside the handle. Seems unsafe to be honest. That's a wicked flashlight too man.
