Pocket Dump

Today SUV Carry (Philippines)

This picture was taken at 6:16am (PHT) and I was in a hurry to catch my ride.  I will retake the photo under better conditions at a later time.  I travel light – no bag.  The person I was traveling with tool collection is unbelievable therefore it would be pathetic of me to even attempt to show up with a tool.  I had actually carried three knives today so in the updated photo – I will correct that.  We stop and got some food and water.

If you have not figure out by now – we are not in the U.S.A. this month.

The list:

Charmin Tissue

2 Wet Ones

Wallet modify for international travel Filipino Pesos

  1. An utility blade.
  2. A box opener
  3. Opening letters and packages

  5. Used in lieu of a fork
  6. Removing splinters
  7. Cutting grass trimmer line, rope and twine
  8. Cleaning dirt from under your fingernails
  9. Whittling woods for artistic or survival purposes
  10. Scaling fish
  11. Cut tags off new items
  12. Sharpen a carpenter’s pencil

Pocket knives are not usually designed for fighting. Pocket knives are almost always cutting knives, not stabbing knives. However it’s better than nothing.

A good pocket should be one of your everyday carry item where it is legal to carry on,Swiss_Army_Fieldmaster_16-tool_Pocket_Knife

SwissCard Classic

SwissCard Classic

My every day carry card for my wallet is a Victorinox  SwissCard Classic

The card that I carried is the SwissCard Classic by Victorinox.  There is also another card by Victorinox SwissCard Lite which has a little light.  I purchase the Classic because I have several sources of light on my person and in my bags.  If you every have your flashlight go out on you while you are in a cave than you will understand why I carry at least three source of lights on me at all time.

I detoured from the subject – sorry.

Anyway, what you are seeing in the photo are:

  • Scissors
  • Small blade
  • Pen
  • Tweezers
  • Toothpick
  • Nail file with a small screwdriver
  • Needle Pin
  • 7.5cm ruler

On the other side is an imprinted 3inches ruler.

I actually use all the tools except the tweezers and needle pin every day.  That is my second pen which can be order. The ink is blue though.

EDC usefulness: 5 out of 5

For emergency usefulness:  3 out of 5
