    Though I'm constantly experimenting, these are my current EDC lights.

    The bottom light is used for general illumination purposes. It is a 100% Malkoff light comprised of a (now discontinued) 1CR123 shrouded body (current version here), a VME bezel and a M61L drop-in, running on a 16340 cell. I'm finding its 230-lumen output with 2+ hours of runtime a good balance for my needs. It rides unnoticed in the bottom of my front pants pocket.

    The top light, what I refer to as my Light Saber (discussed here) is configured entirely as a SD light. It's made up of a Malkoff E2 Hyper Throw head, a Surefire L4 Digital Lumamax body from ebay with a Lumens Factory 2-way Long Clip, and a twisty tailcap from a Surefire Tactician that I found on the M4C equipment exchange. It rides in a Kytex Gear horizontal belt carrier at the 11 o'clock position in total comfort yet readily accessible for fast deployment. Alternatively, it rides fine clipped to the inside of a pocket.

    Perhaps the biggest take-away is that two EDC lights are better than one, and having each tightly-configured for a specific task is working very well for me.

    After scratching the surface of the possibilities made available by the MRDS pistol world, I am going all in. Current EDC has become the Gen 5 MOS 17 with ACRO. Carried in a JMCK AIWB light bearing to accommodate an X300U. I carry an issued Gen 4 21 for work, but this has pretty much taken over for all my other needs.

    The holster was a special order. Discreet Carry clips placed close together, no wing attachment, and a foam wedge. It is everything I hoped it could be. Basically a light capable original AIWB which has always been my favorite model.

    What knife is that good sir? I've been getting into fixed blades recently. I got a mora eldris and becker bk14 I've been toting around scout carry, only in the front.

    It is an Emerson Knives Kwaiken - One of Ernie's 'Signature Series' blades, limited to 63-pieces (this one is #62 of 63). If you find one for sale today, it will probably cost as much as a Colt 1911.

    I do not actually normally carry a fixed blade this big, instead opting for one of Shivworks' Clinch Picks (on the right) which are about a hundred bucks new from Shivworks Product Group.

    @RevolverRob she is a beauty! I knew I never seen a knife like that before. A clinch pick is next on my list! I use my eldris and bk14 more of a small bushcraft knife around my property.

    The Clinch Pick is an excellent blade for its intended purpose of defensive/martial blade use. It's kind of a mediocre utility knife. That's of course, because of the reverse edge configuration, which works nicely if you do a lot of rope or pull cuts, but sucks if you do any kind of chopping.

    For bushcraft work it is tough to beat a Mora! I have four or five of them around here, one in each vehicle, one in a tacklebox, a couple of more out there in the ether some place. I've given away a bunch of them too.

    If you want something a bit 'fancier' but still robust for bushcraft type work, the ESEE 4 is a great size and extremely robust knife. Thanks to a kind friend, I have two of them, one is packed in my field work kit, the other has been passed around among my colleagues and friends, it went to Africa last year and just came back from Brazil a few days ago.

    I pretty much have to ditto that.

    We carry Moras as part of our ten essentials. I've I was going to live out some kind of fantasy where I walked into the woods with nothing but I knife, I'd want my ESEE 4.
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream, but these days I'm here for the revolver and epidemiology information.

    That is high praise for the ESEE 4 thank you! I actually have been eyeing that up as well. As a survival knife I'd say the ESEE 4 would be hard to beat. I would consider a knife like that as you lost everything and you only have that knife to survive. And it doesn't seem too big for intricate task either, like feather sticks and notching and such.

    I can't say enough good things about that Mora Eldris, very small, yet can do a lot of daily tasks with ease. I've started a lot of fires using ferro rods with it, opening boxes, cutting rope... only thing is you definitely need a different sheath for it. I'll get a picture posted soon of it. I found a store on Ebay named Randy's Knives who made a really nice sheath for it. Has a spyderco G clip so you can wear it vertically or horizontally or just take the G clip off and wear it as a neck knife.
