My Daily Carry for the Week of Aug 18

Daily Carry for the week of Aug 18

I haven’t done a daily carry post for awhile so I thought I’d give you all a peek into my bag, its a Letter Writers Alliance member pencil case, in case you were curious. I have a few of my favorite pins stuck to it as well. Paper geek pride!

I’ll go from left to right:

The various and sundry bits at the bottom from the left:

  • Vintage letter opener
  • Lefty Pencil Sharpener
  • Pocket Swiss Army Knife
  • Wireless USB controller for my Wacom tablet
  • a couple spare SD cards
  • a USB flash drive (8GB)
  • my name chop I got in Stanley Market in Hong Kong

Its probably way more than I need but I like to be prepared and have options. I don’t have my own office at work so I tote a lot more with me each day than most people. How many tools do you carry with you each day?

  3. I love EDC posts! The stuff in people’s pockets and handbags is a fascinating little look into their personality and their circumstances.

    I rotate through all my fun pens over the course of a couple of weeks, but I usually only carry one or two in my pocket each day. Today, it’s a Visconti Van Gogh Room in Arles (a gift from my brother) and a Noodler’s Flex, both loaded with Private Reserve Orange Crush.

    All the rest of my kit:
    * Kershaw Leek
    * Streamlight Microstream
    * P-51 Can opener
    * Tweezers
    * Victorinox Swiss Army Knife (in magnificent Banana Yellow)
    * Kahr Arms CW9
    * Field Notes (original recipe, 5mm grid)
    * HTC Thunderbolt

  4. I also love edc posts:) Also love that your lip gloss is longer than the kaweco pen. I hadn’t realized the pens were so small. 🙂

  5. Outside of the usual laptop and moleskin notebook of the week, my briefcase consists of the following items (1) Conklin fountain pen (2) Bexley fountain pen (3) Lamy fountain pen (4) Sharpie yellow highlighter (5) purple ear buds (6) Post-It tabs (7) mini ipad charger (8) two cell phones – one for work; one for personal. No gum, mints this time around. Bummer.
