I’m still waiting for those EMT shears and hoping they’ll be a good addition to my first aid kit.

I’m using mine to make a diagonal cut on the end of 550 paracord so that I can melt it and shape it into a point to get it through tight spots when cord wrapping knife handles. If they’ll cut paracord at a steep angle I think they’ll be fine for your EMT needs, they have one blade serrated and one bevelled so once you start a cut it grips the material and doesn’t stip as much as plain edges would.

I found the original carbon fibre key holder on Kickstarter, called ‘Switchy’:

I like this ‘lightning’ carbon fibre with copper thread. I can’t help imagine it will be like a floppy friction folder in practice…

Does anyone know what these two cutaways might be for?

Be a great start for a really thick bladed friction folder!
Some of the YouTube channels, Tuffthumbz mostly, were complaining about working with the Lightning Strike carbon fibre because it leaves tiny spikes of copper if you aren’t very careful about finishing, the more you sand it smooth the more the copper wires appear and the more you have to sand.
I’m not a great fan of Carbon Fibre but the Uni-directional can make interesting “contour map” lines on knife scales.

Reminds me of burnt woodgrain, it’s all carbon. Smile Elishewitz starts at $650 for linerlocks so I’m out of the target market segment. Sad

I still use the Navy 2001 Atwood knockoff on my keychain. I gave my Gerber Shard to a friend because the missus said she didn’t like it on the keychain.

This Nite Ize keychain tool looks interesting. It’s in the same price range as most of the tools here except with 2 day Prime shipping if you live in the USA.

I like the name. ^^ I think it’s not good placement of the spring clip, for bottle opening and as a nut opener (Wrench? Spanner?). Though most of these tools don’t look very comfortable to use.

Hmmm good point. In the photo it looks like it’s just begging to trap your finger. I’m not sure I’m ready to be called ‘lefty’ quite yet.

CNQ now sell beacon light EDCGEAR in AAA or AA format for only $8-9. > http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=2033

I wonder about the runtime and the weird “don’t use rechargeable batteries” warning.

The neat little pry tool with the measurements marked off on it, with the notched “wrench” in the middle? Not original, I’ve had one exactly like that since the late 1980’s. Not wearing the EDC name though.

A classic design then! Big Smile

I saw this on DX, like the Böker Vox Access tool. Looks perfect for ruining your nails. :bigsmile:

‘Faux-Toob’ missing its insides, for storage (??). I like that it has authentic Taobao url but the aluminium threaded section seems a strange choice:

Chloe. If your ever in Australia please feel free to visit my daughter. I think you know why? Smile

She would love to do your nails.

That shade of pink looks a bit off. Therefore those nails can’t be Chloe’s.

The DX watermark and lack of sliced tomatoes (and the state of the nails) told me it couldn’t be Chloe’s fingers. Silly

Speaking of tomatoes, could we get another fun tomato massacre? :bigsmile:

Oh, I have started growing tomatoes, baby plum tomatoes. ^^ But not for massacring! They are too cute, little plants growing… (pic added)

I didn’t know this site. They seem to have a lot of CountyComm stuff. It would be funny if they started selling EDCGear! :bigsmile:

I don’t have one of these neat pry bars so I have to ask:
should I order a standard one
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/EDC-Tool-Stainless-Steel-MINI-Pry-Bar-FREE-SHIPPING/1596457018.html
Or something else which is more fancy?
I have a huge heavy foldingknife (in leopard style) which I got for two dollar in my maxpedition bag so I have something to abuse and pry but you know you can never have enough of this stuff…

I guess it depends. Do you think you would use a pry bar with the extra features (e.g. bottle opener, wrench)? For me it will just sit in the tool box with my other tools, so I don’t mind a plain simple bar.

The original CountyComm Widgy pry bars are made from heat treated D9 steel, the EDC ones are stainless steel, I haven’t compared one for one but both will save a broken knife blade.

Be sure to check your tomato crop carefully for caterpillars. :bigsmile:
