Whats with the b/W Greek flag?

I assumed it was a White America flag. I'm trying to figure out what's above what I'm assuming is a cigar cutter on the lower left.

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

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".

The bullshit is coming from inside the thread. That's gonna be a yikes from me, dog.

This thread needs more self shame. I'm just the only one whipping it out for y'all to see.

I have a watch that I wear. Think it's a Casio. My wallet is a Finn from adventure time that I got like six years ago. Sometimes I have to wear a hospital ID

EDC?

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.

PYF Tacticool Bullshit: I Only Carry It On Formal Occasions

Im glad someone noticed that. Seconded.

I almost got a shooting buddy who spent two years studying in London one of these https://security-umbrella.shop so he could protect himself from the rampant English knife crime. Shame they're a little pricey. Besides it doesn't rain in California anymore.
