    Audio quality for the EDC explanation is a little iffy. Turn up your sound. It is a new camera.

    Saweet!
    I didn't catch it, do you recall the brand of little fixed blade that Mr. Becker had in his pocket?

    Looking forward to any more videos you make. You do a great job with them, and it is appreciated.
    Especially by those of us who haven't been able to make it to a gathering.

    Is it the Tibo designed by Mistwalker produced by Tops?

    That was actually blade #001. Number 000 was supposed to be Brian's but they spelled his name wrong so he has number 006.

    I can't wait to get my hands on one of them either!

    AIG: Thank's for all your work documenting our shenanigans, and for being such a swell guy. Also, I love your parang. The minute I finished watching it's origin story video, I knew it would devastate any woody material in its way. I had the pleasure of swinging it a few times outside Ethan's shop. It swings very fast for its size and the whoosh noise from the holes brings a smile to my face. A nice tool!

    I'm a fan of the Tibo, and I'll tell it here like I told it to Mistwalker at the gathering... It's a whole lot of utility in a small, lightweight, and surprisingly comfortable for its size package.

    A note on the EDC session: I noticed a few trends. First is a trusted flashlight, just about everyone had one and they trended toward small and "bright enough". A lighter(bic or peanut) and a folder (usually a SAK/multitool or sturdy folder) were more or less universal. Also Duck(not duct, there's a difference)/gorilla tape were common. It was really fun to see just how similar our on our person kits were.

    I'm still amazed at how similar E's rucksack and my forrester are -- other than handle color and the order the blades are in - which is due to the type of lock - there's not really much difference.
