2016, EDC in review… Part 1.

So… 2016 EDC in review.. not much changed or updated this year, the standards that worked so well for 2015 held over. 

My ongoing search for the perfect pocket knife continued, but I’ll update on that a little later, part 2. ☺ 

But I only had two real changes, or new concepts, both great, this year.

First, my discovery of designer hanks. What at first was a curiousity, that I thought was great, but too expensive,  became a trend, and a small collection (up to about 15 now!) 

Here is most of the family, 4 or 5 missing, a few are scattered to places they’re semi permanently dedicated to- one in the shop, one in my tackle box, one in my range bag, and one in the secret pocket in my Tilley. 

All of those are from HeartHanks, except one, the plaid in the top row is from EDC Gentleman, new this last week.(great quality, I’ll be having more from them! ) And my two From SkarHanks areally in my range bag, and tackle box.

The other really cool and useful item I got this year is my ti Prangler, that a few of the outcasts at edccommunity.com forums (still not 100% sure who!) Gifted me! 

It’s never been used as a pry bar, but it’s Always on my keys, and always hanging them if I have them on me. Really has streamlined, eased and revolutionized my key carry!

Above talking about my headlamp, I started to say it was my most carried and used item, but had to stop… This dangler might just be it. But I don’t always carry my keys, so it’s hard to quantify which one really is used more. 

Anyway, those are the big changes, and additions for 2016, both being good, nei, great ones. 😎
