With lovely plastic clips that will break easily. If you can't tie your paracord bracelet onto your wrist then it's safe to say that you can't use it for anything anyway.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

Come to think of it I'm going to crosspost my question from the BUDK thread in GBS since it seems on topic.

James Woods posted:

So a couple buddies and I have over the years adopted a tradition of getting each other silly weapon related Christmas gifts. This started out small with genuinely useful pocket or camping knives but in the last couple years has grown into a pissing contest of who can get the silliest thing and this seemed like a good place to look for suggestions for this year. Below from left to right are a few examples of some choice pieces I've received through this absurd gift exchange. You will notice a trend developing (Zippo is there for scale).



To the far left is a whale skinning knife a friend got from an Inuit guide while in Alaska. Next is actuallt a very nice cleaver that's almost a centimeter thick and works great the one time a year I need it. Last is a ridiculously huge and heavy ax that is now a decorative part of my tiki bar. I'd like to keep the gift under US $50 and preferably available through Amazon. I was leaning towards a mini crossbow and have been looking at this https://www.amazon.com/CDRIC-Numeri...ross+bow+arrows but I'm open to suggestion.

Also since I feel there aren't enough of you closet EDC nerds outing yourselves I will show you my nightstand.



I work as both a bartender and an auto mechanic and have legitimate need for most of what you see albeit not all at the same time on different days of the week.

So uh...which job requires the switch blades? I mean I carry a spring assisted Kershaw all the time but only one and I don't look like a '70s pimp when I pull it out.

Of the three knives pictured on the bottom right only the one in the middle is a true Italian style switchblade. The one with the wood grip has no spring activation and is impossible to open without two hands. I carry that on formall occasions. The one on the right is a TiLite that I use for mechanic stuff and is there mostly because I like the stiletto style and ergonomics and it's cheap and I'm tired of losing Benchmades. I used to use the switchblade for bartender work but switched to that little black thing above the multitool and swiss army knife which is actually a tiny 1.9 inch out the front switchblade that is CA legal that is great for opening boxes and general behind the bar utility. I either toss that or the TiLite in my pocket as my "EDC".

it must suck having to go to the hospital often enough that you'd need an ID when you're only in middle school. Hope you get better little buddy.

You obviously need some tactical beads on the lanyard for your hospital badge. The lanyard could be made from a weave of over 100' of 550 pound tensile strength paracord to use in emergencies. You need to look at your loadout asymmetrically. EDC is a way of life.

I used to know a trench coat wearing dork who always carried knives and sometimes a sword.

He once got mugged and came home without his trousers. He said they stole them but probably just poo poo himself with fear.

I keep one of these on my keyring (not my picture, mine's green):

Frankly half the reason I carry it is because I only have two keys, and I like them to be attached to something a little larger so I don't lose them.

It's got scissors, pliers, a file, a dinky little knife blade, and a bottle opener, which is more stuff than I actually need on a regular basis, but since the thing is loving tiny I don't mind that. I'd recommend them to just about anyone TBH. Because they are so small and light, it's so low effort to keep one around that it's worth it just for the one time in two months that you suddenly urgently need a pair of pliers.
