No setup, just dump those pockets...

    I wear these special Carhartt pants thanks to @ChapmanPreferred that made that suggestion, many pockets and very strong material all work together to keep things in place.

    So tonight as I was changing out, I removed everything from my pockets and put into a pile on the table, not neatly but close together, as you can see, I carry a great number of knives, each has a purpose while a few are just making a cameo appearance, meaning I haven't carried in a while, or I am deciding which I like better and the extra pockets allow this convenience.

    In this group you will see
    Round zippered pouch holds two Moment lenses, the superfish took this photo
    Spyderco DoubleStuff 2, also thanks to @ChapmanPreferred too, picked up at Lewisburg PA show
    Manly Wasp in S90v thanks to @Lyubomir Trayanov
    Benchmade Mini Freek
    Benchmade Freek
    Buck 704v
    Tina 606 thanks to @harronek
    Pioneer SAK
    Executive SAK
    Fisher Space Pen
    Custom made pen by @rustysocket
    Thorfire flashlight
    Olight flashlight
    Whistle from Tops
    TigersEye worry stone thanks to @Win Heger and my grandson Ian :)

    and while that may seem like a lot, it carries well and the pockets help distribute things fairly evenly,

    and of course that isn't everything I have with me, I carry a small travel case by 5.11, which carrys odds and ends that I won't dump out, would take too long to put back ;) suffice to say, several more folders, mostly SAK's and a Swiss Army Tool, a fixed blade, small paring knife for the lunch apple thanks again to @Win Heger and various cables, chargers and the like. It is a very handy bag!

    So, that's it, for today, the two Freeks are battling it out to see which one will stay, right now I like both about equally with the larger Freek slightly ahead.

    The folks at work always know, if something needs cut, Gary can help, or if they need a blade touched up right away, I have a sharpener at hand...

    So, dump away folks !

    Here's a couple of work dumps when I needed to go into a crawl space or working near a pit.

    Good thread idea G2. 20181001_121706-2241x3984.jpg 20180212_095905-1494x2656.jpg

    Yes, thx again. I get lots of compliments on it and it's quite functional for retrieving my keys or hanging them up.

    Lordy, I don't think I've ever carried more than one knife at a time.

    Gosh, not done one of these for a while. I usually have a keychain flashlight on there but it's broken. :(

    42147DA1-38DD-4F10-91E9-F745C9956534.jpeg I don’t carry much. Alox Cadet, Burt’s Bees chap stick & main blade in front pockets. Wallet & snot rag in back pockets. Handgun of choice on right side & keys get clipped to a belt loop with a mini-biner, but they're not technically part of the pocket dump, I guess.

    Today's dump sans wallet and phone. Buck 110 Slim Pro, Pioneer X SAK, Classic SAK, Maratac AAA brass. This is my pretty much standard daily carry. The only thing that usually gets swapped out is the folder for whatever i'm feeling that day.

    Doesn't mean you don't have a pocket to dump...

    It's Sunday, my dude. I'm not going anywhere and everything is on the dresser. Bonus comfy dog in the shot so it's not just an empty pocket.
