titanium-ring

You wake up and find yourself alone in a dark room with only a fuzzy memory of being grabbed and shoved into a White van with no windows. As you wait for your eyes to adjust to the darkness you realize that you are handcuffed and your feet have been zip tied. Do you panic? [...]

What do you EDC?  EDC stands for everyday carry, and it consists of the items that you carry on your person every day, the things you can't live without (or at least think you can't).  Many people do this without even consciously thinking about it, and most who do include at least one tool in [...]

Shifter

In the  1990s for me there was only one EDC (Every Day Carry) flashlight, and that was the Mini Maglite AA.  Its small size, aluminum construction, adjustable spot to flood light beam,  ruggedness, water resistance, candle mode, and spare bulb in tail made this so versatile for me. From in my toolkit for work, to [...]

Is a toothpick part of your EDC (Everyday Carry)? Yeah, I know a toothpick isn't a very strong tool. But what if that toothpick were made of Titanium instead of wood?

I love it when someone takes an item that we all use everyday and reinvents it to make it more convenient.
