What's /fa/'s edc?
Yes the phone is for drugs, the knife is for opening boxes at work and general utility, it's a completely shit as a weapon.
baladeo, the model is called the 22 gram even though it really weighs 24.as you can see n this pic the skeleton handle is also the liner lock for the blade. I get an odd amount of compliments on this knife. It's got a chisel edge though which is a bit of a pain but it's so the knife doesn't cut you when folded.
gonna post 1 more pic after this one.
these threads are so cringey. why would you want to carry all that garbage around?
i carry: a phone, keys, wallet. if it's a work day i carry a lunch and paperwork.
what else do you need to lug back and forth every day unless you work as a fucking hiking sherpa or something?
I live in the biggest city in one of the most developed countries in the world.
Even if you went in the woods or something, you could still use data on your phone. There are zero excuses for not having internet access, unless you live in a developing country with inadequate technology infrastructure.
please tell me what about your life or job requires the daily carry of a knife.
are you a sailor in 1870? do you whittle for a living? are you part of a law enforcement agency? are you part of a gang in west side story?
the only reason to carry a laptop to and from work is if you're working on sensitive material that can't be remotely transferred or held in a cloud. are you an intelligence analyst? are you fucking working for boeing? does your work involve keeping local plaintext files of people's social security numbers?
this type of shit is excessive and affected 95% of the time. again, if you're not a mountain climber for your everyday job, you don't need to carry around 18 tungsten-carbide steel carabiners and four days' provisions
Again, you are an idiot. I live in the same city too fucktard, I have plenty of use for a USB stick. Just scramble your tiny brain a little bit..fuck it I'm not gonna waste the keystrokes on a literal retard.
If you can't understand the purpose of a utility knife there is no point in explaning it to you. Students carry laptops with them to and from school all the time, I see plenty of kids on a bus or train sitting on their laptop doing work. There are plenty of jobs where you are constantly on the move and need a laptop with you because you work in the field. Carabiner because I bike and I hate having keys sitting in the bottom of my pocket and I drink plenty of coke in glass bottles so the carabiners doubles as a bottle opener. You also apply way too much of your personal taste to other people. And yes I am going to be working for boeing after I'm done with school.
>If you can't understand the purpose of a utility knife there is no point in explaning [sic] it to you.
I understand its purpose if you're like a construction worker or sailor or mountaineer. Of which you are none.
>students carry laptops to an from school all the time
affectation most of the time.
>There are plenty of jobs where you are constantly on the move and need a laptop with you because you work in the field
there are *some* jobs like this. there are not countless 4chan threads and buses and trains full of these jobs. again, affectation most of the time.
>Carabiner because I bike and I hate having keys sitting in the bottom of my pocket and I drink plenty of coke in glass bottles so the carabiners doubles as a bottle opener
a single carabiner suffices these purposes
>You also apply way too much of your personal taste to other people
comparing personal taste is literally *the point* of something like a fashion board.
>And yes I am going to be working for boeing after I'm done with school.
Not the same guy, but I work in a small warehouse putting furniture together. Half of my job is drilling things together, and the other is opening/breaking down massive cardboard boxes, cutting tags and straps off of stuff... things where having a knife on your belt is a necessity.
i too have worked in warehouse settings. and they provided us with top quality box and utility knives on site, as i'm sure the vast majority of such jobs will do. there was never a need to lug anything
It clips onto my belt, dude. There's no "lugging" involved. And why would I want to use fucking box cutters instead of my own serrated knife? Furthermore, everyone I work with has their own shit so it's not even like I'm some edgelord.
You're grasping at straws, bro.
>b-but all my friends do it
you happening to be a construction worker doesn't invalidate my point that for most folks it's an affectation. in fact, even for you it still is. see: >>9680642
>kek, I'm pretty sure I know who you are, how is it going working in retail?
the last time i worked in retail was when i was like 20. thanks though.
how's that fragile masculinity working out for you?
>b-but all my friends do it
They're not even my friends - just people I work with.
It's ok to have such an irrational problem with people carrying knives, I guess, but it does make you look foolish.
I carry one when I have to give a presentation or if I have to print something out at Fedex Office (like once a week, sometimes more often). It's more expensive to print at Fedex Office than it is at my university but I just like the atmosphere better.
carry whatever you want. but your desire to carry it doesn't make itself rational by existing, nor does it become rational through your fulfillment of that desire.
you carry a bunch of shit that you don't need to carry. that's irrational. and unfashionable. go back to /k/
you throw around the word affectation like anons throw around the words memeclothes or memeshoes. Using your own tools because you're more comfortable with them and rely on them is not a dislay of affectation. Using your laptop on the train or bus to write last minute homework is not affectation. You made me sad, have to go beat my roomates cat now.
Small thing of cologne
I do use the knife in the multitool occasionally so I definitely see the use of having a dedicated one for frequent use in other jobs. It's common sense I don't know why people get so upset and just absolutely refuse this simple tool which adds a whole lot of ease to life and even a sense of security.
>You carry a bunch of shit you don't need to carry
who the fuck are you to make these decisions about people on the internet you don't even know. You are so stupid and such a conformst it makes me sick.
They're likely british. Shit even at home my little baladeo is useful, no need to go to a drawers for scissors or a knife, just reach into my pocket and tada bag is open, sandwich is cut and salami is sliced and I didn't even have to move my bony ass to the kitchen.
>Using your laptop on the train or bus to write last minute homework is not affectation.
for the students who work 80 hours a week and go to school full time, it's not affectation. because they literally have no other time in which to do it. for all other students (which is most of them), it is.
>Using your own tools because you're more comfortable with them and rely on them is not a dislay of affectation.
actually that pretty much meets the definition of affectation spot on?
a tool is there to allow you to accomplish a specific task. does it allow you to accomplish the task at the requisite pace? that is the only non-affected question to ask about a tool.
>You made me sad, have to go beat my roomates cat now.
You should seek professional services. I don't mean that as an insult, I mean that as honest advice. One day you might find a way to operate in society without feeling the need to physically project your self-hatred onto other living beings.
>h-honet i-i just say it out of habit
>conforms to culture of excessiveness
>accuses people who challenge that conformity of conformity
>a tool is there to allow you to accomplish a specific task. does it allow you to accomplish the task at the requisite pace? that is the only non-affected question to ask about a tool.

>being this stupid
now I can see why you can't comprehend what's the purpose of a personalized EDC, you are a flat out gullible moron.
How dare you suggest that my 25lbs of gear is not absolutely, totally essential each and every day of my life?! I'll kill you you know NOTHING
S4 in copper
White sennheiser x adidas sport earbuds
American eagle wayfarers (I'm 6'2" with too big of a head for most glasses, it took me a whole day of trying on at the mall to even find those)
A brown fossil card wallet with a little money clip
Keys for apartment, pool, mail, parents, and car + la fitness card, cvs card, and frys card
Lately a book called 47th Samurai about the decendants of fighters on the pacific front. I don't read novels because I usually get the point after 3 chapters and get annoyed that they're talking down to me. I like John Locke for this reason. He simply states his points and assumes I am his intellectual equal instead of making up a soliloquy as if I were a child in need of a morality fairy tale.
Only one faggot poser in this thread that carries around 50 lbs in knives? Incredible. Normally these are full of retarded pic related.
I carry my car keys, my iphone and 20 bucks.
I really can't complain about people carrying so much stuff, I carry a whole world in the back of my WV.
>My books and notebooks
>my laptop with charger
>a pair of socks
>my bag with toothbrush, toothpaste, facial soap, creams, moisturizer.
>hidden money and drugs in the front of the car.
I have all that in a suitcase, in case I wash my car.
Mine's more or less for convenience. If I ever come across something that needs opening or cutting then I won't have lots of trouble with it. I don't always take it everywhere, just generally when I think I might need it.
how come you're eating a nice natural granola bar and drinking naive water but also smoking smelly, dirty cigarettes? genuine question. also stethoscope?! you should know better doc!
Guys what are the best headphones for everyday carry?
I tried out a friend's pic relatec and they sound great, super comfy (way better than audio technicas)
Any other suggestions?? I'm looking for rlly good sounding and rlly comfy headphones, any advice would be appreciated
Thx in advance
Fuck, forgot pic. Don't shitpost and drink, /fa/.
bump I need more headphone edc suggestions please and thanks
I have so many pairs of these that I literally get them in bulk on Amazon
They're cheap, comfortable, good sound, and last about six months
unrelated but i have the cloud to butt plugin on chrome and this is the funniest shit i have ever seen
Notebook, some pens and pencils, wallet, shitphone, deactivated android phone that I use like a very small shitty old tablet, laptop, secondary notebook, dice, and an old silver dragon yuan coin.
No pic because no camera. If I had a camera, though, that would be in my EDC, too, so I'd have to either borrow a camera or do a couple pictures and stitch them together.
>general snus lös
>small zipped wallet/coinpouch w/ credit card, rolling papers, sometimes spare subway ticket
>sometimes a very small folding knife
Pocket knife is "hidden" in a small upper arm pocket on one on my shell jackets. Knife laws are ridiculous here but my defence is that I "forgot" it there the last time I went into the woods. Should work.
Unless I'm wearing a backpack (laptop etc) or are returning home from buying weed (small dry sack in jacket pocket) I never really need anything else summer or winter.
Correct. Why did you go for Norway instead of Sweden, Finland or Denmark? I guess Finland doesn't have as strict knife laws and Norwegians wear more shell jackets than any other Nordic countries. But still impressibe anon.
This is hilarious in two scenarios
A) You stole that pen from Supercuts; meaning you get your hair cut at Supercuts.
B) You work at Supercuts; meaning you (for whatever reason) bring six hot dogs to work every day.
I'm just... really curious which one is true, or maybe even the possibility of a much weirder third scenario.
You can always detect someone outside of the US. It's a tool, not just a weapon. I use my knife all the time for all kinds of things and yeah if someone does try to mug me id rather have it on me
minus the blackberry. someone pickpocketted it last yr i now have an iphone
honestly it's better to not carry a knife for those types of situations. if you're getting robbed in the skreets, the last thing you want to do is pull out a weapon and try to stand your ground. motherfuckers are crazy and will slay you in the street without thinking twice. they will literally empty an entire clip into you and then kick the shit out of your dead body.
if you grew up in the city, then you know this shit and you either 1) do the mugging yourself, 2) carry a strap and will slay anyone that makes a move on you without hesitation, or 3) you realize that your wallet and phone are not worth your life or any conception of "honor".
seriously, if you get mugged in the city either run or just do the drill and hand your shit over. there are people out there who will kill you at the drop of a pin. and your knife will do absolutely nothing to protect yourself from them. if anything it could lead to escalation.
the best defense against mugging is blending in. of course, muggers shouldn't mug in the first place. but they do, and so some street smarts never hurt.
seriously all these transplants come to the city acting though shit because they used to participate in drunken boxing in bars back home. they think they can handle their own, when they don't realize that people don't fucking play in the city. they won't box you or knife fight you 1 on 1. they'll jump you with 5 dudes, guns drawn, ready to put you down.
>living in America
It's crazy how "the city" in your country means "horribly violent and gangs rampant", and "inner city" is synonymous with "ghetto". I don't know how you can live in a country where it's expected for people to not go to certain parts of town because they'll get mugged for sure, or you need to carry a gun everywhere in case someone pulls something on you.
The worst crime here is pickpockets, and they're rarely (if ever) armed. Even still all we do is maybe carry around a second wallet with a few bucks and expired cards in it just in case.
But really, you could move from America to a third world country and you'd probably be safer.
continued: i was on a court case where two inner city gang members chased down a 14 year old kid and stabbed him through the neck with a katana, killing him instantly.
think about the mentality you have to be in to do something like that. to kill a 14 year old 2-on-1 in a grizzly, carnal fashion. you think you're going to defend yourself against that type of person with a 2.5 inch utility knife?
no fucking way. the best way to defend yourself from that person is to have street smarts and not get caught in that type of situation in the first place. which is not victim-blaming. 100% of the blame goes to the perps. but if you wanna talk realistic defense: blend-in. failing that, run. or if you're the type who will shoot first and ask questions later, carry a strap. i don't recommend or advocate that third option at all, but it's a hell of a lot more viable than a box-cutter
Oh and where do you live where it's a utopia m8? the social issues and associated violence of inner cities is a transnational problem. it does not have borders. wherever there is systemic wealth disparity, you will find it
European countries tend to have their poor people outside of the inner city. Doesn't prevent crime in those areas but it does keep dumb rich people and tourists from wandering from downtown into a mugging.
are the standard apple ones the only earphones that don't look like shit?
i can't name any brands but there definitely are solid coloured ear buds with better sound quality than apple's. go to a store or check out a website and i'm sure you'll find a pair.
Always in the little pocket of my jeans.
What are cigarette packs like in your country?
Are they /fa/, or are they Canada-tier?
