How small are you looking for? I carry a Ontario RAT-3 IWB. It's a great knife with a very good sheath that comes with the belt clip or the Teklok.


January 1, 2008, 01:52 PM
I switch off often:
Schrade LB5 Smokey, Case 161 Trappper, Case Barehead Trapper,Case small Sodbuster, Case large Sodbuster, Old Timer 770t Muskrat.

Smith & Wesson HRT and a Victorinox Swiss Army Tool Atlas model. I'm told a Swiss Army Knife becomes a Swill Army Tool if the blade has a locking mechanism.

I carry a Tarani Masters Model Karambit folder and a Strider AR folder daily. The Strider may seem big, but there was a time I was glad I had such a large folder, and I feel unprepared with little blades now. No, the incident was not weapon-related, but was an emergency in which there was no time to go hunt for a pry bar, and I very nearly used the AR as a prying tool. As I was about to start prying the windshield from its bedding, rescuers working from the other side got the jammed car door open. My friend, who was a co-worker, could not be saved, due to internal injuries, but the experience taught me to carry a stout knife every day.

January 1, 2008, 07:23 PM
38 taurus model 85 with the hammer ground off.
I would buy a hammerless S & W if I had it to do over.

January 1, 2008, 07:28 PM
A Kershaw Leek, a CRKT M16-10KZ, my trusty Utili-key, and occasionally a few others. Unfortunately, in my area I can't carry a fixed blade.

A Roselli UHC Carpenter knife (http://www.roselli.fi/1/hinnasto/uhc_tilaus_e.shtml) would be a good choice as well.

January 1, 2008, 09:12 PM
Here are some items I mix up and carry...and NO NOT ALL at 1 time....:)


Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
January 1, 2008, 09:27 PM
That's quite a toolbag, Al. :what: :what: Love the firecrackers... :p

Also like your (arguably) AOW Seecamp - I needs me one of those. :)

What are the plastic doohickeys, two of which have cord around them? :scrutiny: Heck, could you just go ahead and identify every item in every picture for us? You're the worst nightmare of metal detector security guards. :)

January 1, 2008, 09:57 PM
I have used flashlights and firecrackers or devices related to firecrackers so many times in my life it crazy.I always carry a noise/distraction type device or 3 .Full size FB are just to darn big.

I have used them in many ways a few examples have been...to avoid a fight,saved a few persons lives and still remained in the shadows,to raise hell so another agency could help me and not expose myself,to simulate gunfire,to avoid a animal attack,etc....thats to much info ..:uhoh::uhoh:

Most of my crazy devices are not in public pics..I dont post all my tricks in pics...:D

A light and a noise device has saved my ass so many times...far more than a gun and way beyond a knife.

Plactic doohickey ??? what item ???

January 1, 2008, 10:04 PM
My usual, Pt1911 and my SW knife...

January 1, 2008, 11:16 PM
I like my Gerber Mini Covert. 2.8" blade is legal to carry where I'm at. It sees alot of use opening letters and cutting the plastic bands on those green Boise-Cascade ream boxes of printer paper. It's almost as useful as my Thinkpad laptop. The other two make alot more noise and I hope I never have to use them.

"Agency" and "saving lives" it all points to the Mall Ninja!!!!

I'd love to add half those knives to my collection, I'd just never admit to actually carrying them :uhoh:

I would not trust a Kel-tec on my life

January 2, 2008, 07:57 PM

I can give one excellent excample of a sound device saveing a persons health and maybe life.

Years ago I was watching a house for reasons that need not be said ...The house next to the house I was in was a "crack type party house" it was NOT the watched house.

One night a rageing party was on and as I was looking out a small open window that was well hidden,I saw 2 persons 1 male 1 female start to fight badly in the front yard about 10-12 yards away from my location.

The police will rarely show up for this area was very bad and the police are rarely called anyway. I could NOT let my self be exposed but I also could not let this guy kill this female.

I decided to take a risk and to launch a " german 15mm birdbomb" with upgraded explosive added for better effect. I was able to launch the 15mm with a .22cal blank just about perfect for a air burst about 6 feet over their heads.The concussion was great and the fighters stopped were stunned a second and the female ran away as the male was still recovering...the party all came out and the mystery never was solved..they all thought the DV guy fired a gun at his girl.

January 2, 2008, 09:00 PM
alwilliam, What in blue blazes is that headless doll thing!???? Maybe I shouldn't be laffin' but I have no clue what that is... I can't say I know what other things are either like that sort of cross looking thing..

I carry a swiss knife in my left jeans pocket all the time, a NAA mini conversion in my right jeans pocket all the time, and if I go out I add a Kimber CD Pro II.

When I need a real blade I get one of many to select from, mainly fixed blades.

January 2, 2008, 09:22 PM
I think Alwilliam is pulling our legs. Either way, those items could form the basis of a Quentin Tarantino movie! It's a mix of lethal weapons and things you find at the bottom of really interesting cereal boxes. And I am also wondering about the lady thing with the electric teats.

I carry puukko.


January 2, 2008, 09:43 PM
Is that black plastic handle thing, with the chord wrapped around it, in the first picture a garrote?

January 2, 2008, 10:10 PM
Hey- I think I know you from blade forums
You a double nought spy, or sumptin'?
I think you're real, and I value my life so I won't ask questions.
Hi from Jim Preston. What's that flaming trident on the revolver

January 2, 2008, 10:51 PM
What in blue blazes is that headless doll thing!????

Looks like a lighter to me.

I can't say I know what other things are either like that sort of cross looking thing..

Is that black plastic handle thing, with the chord wrapped around it, in the first picture a garrote?

Don't remember its name. Stinger or something like that. Basically its another force multiplier, put it between your fingers and swing a punch hitting with the "pointy" blunt end. Kinda the same principle when a 105lbs girl in heels steps on your foot with the heel.

Lots of goodies in his bag of evil; I see HAK's, a dixie top popper, a baton, Atwood pry baby, oc, coin purse saps, weighted gloves, kubutons, not including the guns, knives, and flashlights.

And does the cell phone(Black one not gray one) look a little funny to anyone else? just guessing but either a stungun/cellphone or .22lr cellphone

January 2, 2008, 11:02 PM
I was thinking it was a lighter too. /\/\ Gotta light the firecrackers with something.

I dont know if Verizon puts there logo on stungun/pistol phones? Maybe?

I carry:
Left pocket;
Benchmade Griptillian, 2 ink pens, and some loose change mostly quarters.
Right pocket;
Truck keys, cash(small bills), cellphone clipped to outside of pocket.
Leatherman original

During hunting season(or when I carry) the XD9 is on the belt, the Leatherman is moved to my right side(weak side) and a Buck 110 is added. CRKT Triumph NECK using Mercharness under right arm.


January 2, 2008, 11:24 PM
Cosmoline..." I think Alwilliam is pulling our legs".:evil: I like your thoughts.

The "doll" is a lighter for my crackers.It a movie prop type item and was used by Robert De Niro in cape fear..the lighter lights and the nipples and crotch light up...:rolleyes: They were semi comon 10 years ago but are hard to find now.

January 3, 2008, 03:50 AM
"I would not trust a Kel-tec on my life"

OT, but I do every day. Never had a reason not to.

hey alwilliam in one of your photos its looks like you have two blank cartridges with red plastic plug, is that umarex pepper cartridges?

my EDC is.
Cell phone
Maglight AA
OC Gel
Endura 4 or CS Ti-Lite 3"
CS Ti-Lite 6"
21" or 16" ESP expandable baton or soft SAP
And sometimes a fixed blade, Blackjack performance blade short

Firecrackers saving your bacon as a mini-flashbang diversion device - tee hee. That's up there with wall-climbing boots. :D I too think Al might just be yankin' our chain a little bit. :)

January 3, 2008, 11:40 AM
The firecracker thing is 100% true...if used in the right way ,noise deversion devices work excellent.Blank rounds also have uses.NO BS.

The red tippped 38spl rounds are AP omnishock rounds...ap tip rounds that open up with 4 cutting blades when inside target...old school but they work.

Long ago banned by the ppa of 1986 and on the batfe hit list... but still used.

ATF has listed the following rounds as AP ammo:

All KTW, ARCANE, and THV ammo.
Czech made 9mm Para. with steel core.
German made 9mm Para. with steel core.
MSC .25 ACP with brass bullet.
BLACK STEEL armor and metal piercing ammunition.
7.62mm NATO AP and SLAP.
PMC ULTRAMAG with brass bullet (but not copper).
OMNISHOCK .38 Special with steel core.
7.62x39 ammo with steel core bullets.

A fired omni can be seen in the center of below pic of some of my ammuntion test work done in the 1990s.


A unfired 9mm and 38spl omnishock can be seen below.


January 3, 2008, 12:11 PM
ok nasty:eek:

January 3, 2008, 12:25 PM
These days I most often carry:
-Case Peanut, Yellow Handles, with Chrome Vanadium Blades
-SAK (Vic) Classic SD.
-Carton Cutter, one that takes disposable single edge razor blades.

My circles of travel and some include NPE (non personal weapon environments) with Metal Detectors , wands, and subject to being frisked.

CCW, yes, except in these NPEs.

Now I have used a Case YH, CV bladed Slimline Barehead Trapper, or Stockman.
Just again while State law restricts me to a blade of no longer than 3.5", some areas have "in-house" regulations.

Total knife cannot be 3" ( must be 3" closed length) - Peanut is 2 7/8" closed length btw.

Some Restrict NO LOCKING knives, and NO blades over 2.5" .
Playing it safe, I measure from Pivot Hole to Blade Tip.

IF Health Safety Officer "requires" a locking blade, Carton Cutter is quite acceptable, and meets Safety Regs, and "not able to close onto fingers" concern.

SAK (Vic) Pocket Pal and Bantam are two other knives I have used that fit PC and Legal restictions for some environments.

Couple of things I want to bring to light.
I was raised with slip joints and lessons were then and apply today - Safety is between the ears, not on a "lock" just as firearm safety is between the ears and not that "firearm safety.

Don't laugh at SAK Classics, as quite a few emergency Trach's have been done, and I know quite a few Medical Folks that keep one handy for Medical Emergencies.

Don't laugh at small slipjoints, these too are proven in history for Emergency Medical Needs before and after SAKs became more popular and available.

i.e. Oklahoma Bombing, and the Ortho Doctor used his personal Case Peanut to Amputate a leg of a lady to get her out of that trapped situation.

He took a Surgeons kit, and these tools would not work. Time Running out, First Responders in fear they were going to have to leave the lady, as serious concerns of a "cave in" ...

Case Peanut, with its thin sharp blade amputated that ladies leg at the knee; and she then able to be extracted.

Look it up, court testimony of this situation also mentions this Case Peanut.

One should consider their environments, and circle of travel in regard to EDCs.
Remember, no tool is ever better than user of said tool.
Oh, and knives should be able to cut, and cut well!

January 3, 2008, 12:30 PM
alwilliams, You sure do have some way cool secret agent stuff... Most of this is all very new to me. I have the Chesire Cat grin happening just looking at these pics.

Most certainly I do not want you as an enemy! I am quite normally confused as it is, and need no help from you becoming any more confused than I already am..

No doubt your collection of bullets has everything you need to kill any science fiction monsters and then some, than I have ever seem in my life! I like the diamond tipped one best.. I think my wife needs to see that kit, as she loves colors...

January 3, 2008, 12:37 PM
Their is some very crazy stuff out their...Thats for darn sure ..to bad I can only post very old school declassed things.

A good example is The 45acp round with the white plastic sabot with metal point it is a classic. The US goverment spent millions on its design and its big brother in 20ga.

The smitar project was a design that fired a razor edge knife blade with stability fins..thats what you see in the pic the top of the blade.The design worked well.left little ballistic evidence and would pierce both sides of a gi helmet and the head in between also.Aramid was no problem for the scmitar.

Worked well for the cia and was well tested in vietnam by the rats..now just a forgotton killing tool.


January 3, 2008, 12:52 PM
Just for fun and info....If you were a 1930s era RR SPECIAL AGENT your edc would be this..

Solid brass knuckles,sap,a 20ga billie with holster.You would also have a badge/id and a sidearm.

You would also carry a few rounds for the billie like dm/vomit gas rounds,rock salt and low brass birdshot type rounds.


January 3, 2008, 12:59 PM
I don't suppose there is any thing overly special in there for x wives is there?

January 3, 2008, 01:22 PM
Awe that's to bad, I was hoping for some anti telephone super magnatron, with a gag rag with auto feature to shut her up.. Perhaps a instant presto box of chocolates with 10 times the calories each! Fire for effect ice cream, or something in that order, what ever it takes for a little peace, and I do mean to spell peace and quiet.

January 3, 2008, 01:23 PM

If those are photographs of your collections, I am envious, sir! Would you mind taking a few more photographs of interesting items you own? You seem to have quite a spread.

January 3, 2008, 01:40 PM
The firecracker thing is 100% true...if used in the right way ,noise deversion devices work excellent.

Actually, that's not a bad idea. F&G use firecrackers to scare bear off kills up here. Oddly enough though while it's perfectly legal for me to carry a massive handgun concealed up here, it is NOT legal for me to carry fireworks of any kind.

January 3, 2008, 01:43 PM
I always carry a Spyderco. Most often it's a black PE Salsa, but I seem to have misplaced it, so I'm carrying my tan Native.

I'm often in an academic environment in which firearms are not legal (in GA), but typically have a folder and small flashlight.


January 3, 2008, 01:57 PM
I don't actually have any weapons on me at all times; I attend college so weapons on campus is a quick trip to the Dean's office; Since the big thing at Georiga Tech even a can of Mace can get you tagged with the right parties.

But I do bike around campus alot, since it's a big campus; I've got a pair of cold-weather motorcycle gloves with hardened Kevlar backing and carbon-steel knuckleguards. While I'm really rather fond of avoiding confrontation, I've got a pretty damn solid right hook, and those steel knuckle-plates essentially equate to a pair of knuckledusters with a built in stamp of the company logo, so they can remember what broke their nose every time they look in the mirror.

Good Jehoozists Al; happen to have friends in the SPETZNAZ by chance?

January 4, 2008, 12:53 AM
Keys, wallet, good folding knife, sometimes a good fixed blade as well, been known on occasion to "bend" local laws and carry some items that might be "less" than legal to carry when I feel they might be needed. IE a slapper and on ocasion a ASP baton.

dont carry a pistol unless im at home or at my dads property as I am now. Then its my G26 in a sepra holster and quite often mexi' carry casually in the house.

January 4, 2008, 02:06 AM
A Gerber Silver Knight (2" blade) since 1982.

A Leatherman since 2002, first the Supertool, then changed to the Wave last year.

A Kershaw Leek since early 2006 when it became clear I needed a one-handed cutter that I can snap open while wearing gloves.

Two Fisher space pens.

Pocket magnifier (Fresnel lens).

Fob-style mini-screwdriver for eyeglasses on my keychain.

Some kind of LED flashlight in a pocket or bag of some kind.

Cell phone. (Recently saw a low-end laptop computer on sale for less than my darned phone cost.)

The usual wallet & keys. Plus a duplicate of every car key on a separate ring.

In the car, there's a whole assortment of useful stuff. Pretty much beyond the scope of this discussion, but I'm never far from an axe or machete.

CZ 42
January 4, 2008, 08:04 PM
CRKT Cruiser, best folder ever... Works better with wet hands than any other grip I've felt. Also a cell phone, lighter, baton, and IWB throwing knife but I know my folder will do the job. By far it's the best one I've ever handled. If I could get a hold of the CRKT Hissatsu I'd wear that too.

January 5, 2008, 11:48 PM
Items I have EDC at times.


January 6, 2008, 07:10 AM
alwilliam is that an JJ dog leash you have cut down in one of the photos? if so whats the reason?

January 6, 2008, 03:02 PM
MORE of a dog leash holder with LESS OF A KNUCKLE DUSTER LOOK but retains the same impact effect.:evil:

Al, I love your collection but I see lots of things that could get you in heaps of trouble if you got caught.. I know, don't get caught, righto. But generally it's not regarded as High Road to hit 'n run....:)

On the streets I carry:
Wallet (left rear)
Maglite 2AA/surefire e2D (left front)
Kershaw Leek/Kershaw Blur/ any one of a dozen misc brand knives (right front)
Chapstick (almost more important than a gun when you're this good lookin)
Keys, sometimes bandana (right rear)
Kel-Tec P11 (which I would bet my life on thanks) IWB, no extra mags

At work all I get to carry is a ball-point pen, 2AA maglite or a penlight and the assurance that it's OK to lock yourself in a closet so long as you dial '66' for emergency operator first!

January 13, 2008, 06:33 PM
Thanks to BIG Al....and FYI Im thinking that seecamp is NOT AOW regulated with that particular wallet holster since the Slide of gun protrudes ABOVE the wallet itself and does NOT seat within it fully. just a guess:cool:


January 13, 2008, 08:27 PM
Seecamp holster is NOT a AOW....Russ is right on.

If I get "caught" then I messed up on my job and much worse IMO... I will have screwed up my personal goals for non-telegraphing of any EDC item . A very small Part of my job is the testing of secure check points.

January 15, 2008, 01:28 PM
I used to carry a Gerber quick opening knife with a black teflon coated serrated blade, and a footshaped Hooters bottle opening keychain. I started carrying a Benchmade Griptillian MDP and gave my Gerber to my brother. I lost my Hooters keychain which really sucks, you ever try to open a beer on the road while driving with a pair of pliars. Whenever I am out in the bush I carry my RIA 1911A1 Tactical in case my primary is not suited for the task at hand.

January 15, 2008, 03:21 PM
Al likes me collects weapons becasue he likes them in addition to having an example of things you are likely to encounter in the street.

Nice Jaw Jackers Al:)

January 15, 2008, 11:54 PM
Al, were exactly do you get your brass knuckles??

January 16, 2008, 12:50 AM
Please dont get the wrong idea..I am a :D goofball but not insane...I carry some items for the testing of checkpoints only.

I rely on a holster by Lou Alessi ,glock 27,180gr ranger t and a surefire or fenix for all serious work...end of story.

As far a dusters....The jaw jacker types come from jeff at http://alphainnovationsllc.com/default.aspx

Interesting collection.

Mentor took apart a BHP and tossed parts hither-n-yon, removed the 22 karat curb link chain from around his neck, and removed 5 small links, as the links were not soldered shut on purpose.
The balance of his neck chain, he placed around the neck of a Nun that worked in a Missionary, that attended to children with no parents, or not knowing the whereabouts or fate of parents due to a living hell going on - called Vietnam.
Nun put the chain under her Nun's attire, and then kissed her cross and she was ready to continue.

Mentor slipped his small 2 5/8" Hen & Rooster pen knife into a pocket of the peasant attire he was dressed in - he appeared to be a peasant that worked the rice paddy's - the one that feed those that were his enemy, enemy of his brothers and sisters wearing uniforms and those back home in the USA.

Ox drawn wagon continued to the checkpoint, there was medicine in the black market for the children, and arranged safe passage for my Mentor.
Nun exchanged words with the armed persons at the checkpoint, they glanced at the peasant worker [Mentor] and could see the blood seeping through the cloth bandages.

This matched the sharing how a the peasant had injured himself using a tool in the paddy's.
Two, then three pcs of 22 karat curb link chain were placed into the hand of the person in charge, and the ox-cart continued.

Safe passage for a mentor, the Nun, and medicine secured on the black market with the rest of the chain.
Word later - safe passage was afforded back across for the Nun and the medicine.
Mentor was not injured, just blood from a small animal and cloth bandages gave the perception needed.

Just thinking about the Mentors and what used on the streets here in the USA as well...
No cell phones back then, no 911, no brass knuckles used , newspaper knives were, as were "dollar pocket watches" and and 19 cent screwdrivers and ...

Just me, I sorta miss the OTASCO, and Western Auto screwdrivers I used to get for street use...
Damn impossible to find a $2 drug store cane now-a-days...
Hen & Rooster wants $39 for knife like back when , and gold is over $800 an ounce, and street folks doing the same stuff in 1980 when gold went over $800 an ounce.
I know, oh how well indeed I know.

It was only $200,000 of gold coins in rolls, that needed to be picked up and delivered.
Street Thugs waved,said hi, I went on by.
Wise investment that was the "stolen" whiskey and cartons of cigarettes I had done earlier...

Oh the armored car? That was a decoy, I was primary - working solo again.
Never owned a jaw jacker, Sears Roebuck screwdrivers yes, Jaw Jacker no.

Looking back I coulda been "kilt"...I only carried very little fashioned equipment that day...

Hardest thing we had with cops doing undercover - getting them to blend in and not look or act like cops.

Holds true today.

Anyone today still use library cards or parking passes for defensive tools?
I guess not, them worked really well!

At work, I carry an Old Timer lock back, about 3" long, and a S&W 64-3 38 special, just in case.

Off duty, the same Old Timer and a Glock 23 stoked with Gold Dots and a J frame BUG, with Glasers.

At home, a S&W 1076 10mm, stoked with the evil (according to the Brady Bunch) Black Talons.

I have designed and built some very odd covert weapons in the past 30 years and it can be a fun hobby but IMO..If I had only your 2 choices I would Go with the sak and leave the hidden blade at home.
