@RegisDB9 you’re not worried about hanging dong?
I can’t answer for @RegisDB9 , but gi pants are super loose with a drawstring.

I do wish that I could get hidden pockets sewn into some gi pants, or at least Velcro flapped patch pockets for a wallet, phone, keys and pocketknife.

@shopcanoeclub - you said you know the Triple Aught guys? They have some pretty cool pocket knife collabs. Do you (or anyone else) carry one? I usually have something small like a little engraved Peña front flipper or Hinderer half track in pocket, but I also own a lot of “coveted” knives, hard to find knives like Demkos and a Koenig Arius and Chris Reeve’s various models, including an Umnumzaan, as well as a few customs.

I def have to watch out where excitement happens if you know what I mean…:hide: In fact my lady has a running joke where she will try to that to me in a crowded place…jokes on her cause the think of the old lady next door naked is fool proof

Still highly recommended though, way too many positives

As with pretty much everything I’m interested in, I go all in, and am pretty sure that I can’t get them all into one shot without a zoom lens, I have boxes full of them, but I’ll do it do for some of the more interesting ones.

Just about 1/2 of the knives on my desk. Most of this will mean nothing to people not into knives, but I've posted a couple of "grails" in there just for people who are into pocketknives. The one I actually carry and use the most are the two smaller ones on the side, and one that is not shown (Demko AD 20.5 with new scales).

Most of my knife use is limited to breaking down cardboard boxes, of which we have many, and opening packages, and the best knives for those have shorter blades.

When I am hiking, I carry a larger fixed blade fixed to my pack that does any task around camp, and a small folder as a backup and for little tasks that might come up and it would be a hassle to take off the back to get to.

I also have a knife with a glass breaker in my car (Benchmade Contego for those who want to know.) I always knew that this was a real danger in modern cars, but after a friend drowned after driving into water because of poor road markings, I have kept that an a pretty powerful, water resistant flashlight in my car. Electronics are awesome until they are not. Incidentally, this is also my gripe about sapphire crystals on watches. they are super hard, but also brittle, and shatter quite easily. Acrylic will scratch, but even if dropped on a sharp surface, rarely scatter, protecting the dial and the movement.

If any knife nerds are here, and want to see an All Ti Demko AD20 in 3V steel or something else "rare", there is a semi-decent chance that I have it if it's something that I like and could see myself using.

As for anyone who wants to ask, no, I don't think of knives as a self defense tool. It;s has no self defense capacity, This as someone who has practiced martial arts semi-seriously most of his life and taught self defense classes. I mostly carry one because I think that it's cool. If you want a self defense tool, seriously, the best thing that you can carry is a pot lid, not even kidding.

Oh, love that one. That is an exclusive from Urban EDC Supply (www.urbanedcsupply.com), the F5.5 with titanium scales and Seigaiha wave pattern, which is their signature. It's a short knife (well under 3" blade) so legal pretty much anywhere save Chicago and Boston, which have a 2.5" blade law. It's designed by Jesper Voxnaes, after a sailor's knife,which is tipless on purpose, as you don't really want to stab yourself or someone else if the sea kicks up. I have a few knives with that same pattern, and one of those with brass scales that is custom engraved with an owl.

Dude…well yeah you wrote my whole paragraph in 5 words

c'est la vie…..namaste…etc etc
You’re hanging with @RegisDB9 on a beautiful warm night in Miami. The drinks are flowing, the music is playing, and the bay is twinkling in the evening light. As you glance over the brim of your mojito, you catch the silhouette of Regis at full mast outlined in the setting sun. He looks over at you intently, meets your eyeline for what seems like an eternity in silence, and gently exhales,

“…Namaste.”
