My Office EDC is coming along.
I am not going to get a fancy pen because i found i like those parkers the most. I buy them in bulk here and give them to all my work buddies.  O0 O0

Got the Olight yesterday. Its the Brass AAA model. Lovely light. I still want the copper though.

Out of all my watches this is my cheapest one and the one i like the most. Seiko 5 automatic.

The Civivi knife has the thinnest blade i've ever seen on such a knife. It glides through everything. That saying it feels pretty fragile and i will not use that tip for anything.

Also carry a leatherman in the workshop to handle the heavy stuff.

Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

Very cool Cappie. I tend to stay away from Damascus as it generally performs badly as a steel.
But that is just me, as long as it holds an edge for your use, go for it.

Dis nou oulike pic Cappie. Hier is myne

Like gel penne, maar nie duur nie
My eerste Spyder mes
Fenix PD35 - 1x 18650 battery vir 1050 lumins
Bertucci watch. - sien https://www.bertucciwatches.com/. Titanium, one piece moulded body - no pins, swiss movement. Good price.  Had Seiko 5 Auto. Was very disappointed since i am a big seiko fan. In winter the watch comes to a halt after one night off my wrist. The pins were iffy - i lost the watch after the pins came undone when i put my bike jacket on. Very disappointed

Waarom dra julle flitse?

Vir load-shedding? Vir ingeval die krag afgaan en jy verder as 2 meter van jou selfoon af is.

Yes i just wanted something pretty :biggrin: Its edge holding ability is pretty poor. But it sharpens up really easy.

Ek like ook Gel pennie maar die donners loop uit as ek vlieg. Dit het al n paar keer gebeur. Die parkers vlieg lekker.

Ekt dieselfde kak met die Seiko 5. Voel of die spring net so 18 ure stoor op n goeie dag. So man moet maar altyd check of hy nog loop in die oggend. Ekt nie standard pins op my Seiko nie so ekt nog niks sulke probleme nie.

Ek EDC net die flits in die workshop. Dit help met werk in elektriese panels en so aan. Hy clip op my cap se rand dan is dit n kopliggie. Foon se flits is cool maar ek dra n moerse samsung note. Jy kan fokkol anders doen as jy daai ding in jou hand vashou nie.

I bought two knives on a sale for basically next to nothing.
They are nice knives but not really my style so i will probably resell them on here when i get back to SA in October.

The first is the HVAS with the field strip functionality.

The second is the Gusset by Ken Onion.

I might keep the Gusset.  :imaposer:

The thickness of the blade is very special Tom. Especially if you are into Opinels.

Yes Cappie I favor a thin blade, that's what made the Opinel special as well as the wooden handle....just something to it.
I use my knives extensively, and should rather not post a picture of how my usd 84 spyderco delica 4 looks already, I mean it's ok after a month of use but it is a tool and very good at that. Same goes for my leather supertool which has already paid for itself 2 x over in a couple of weeks.
It would however be cool to have a special knife one uses to eat apples, cheese and cary on you when not performing physical work and I think you got the right one there!

I bought it initially just to cut apples and stuff at work. Its now become my eating knife too.
I removed the pocket clip also. I carry it in my jean 5th pocket.
