This is sort of a heavier load out for me, in the summer I usually forego the flashlight and just use the one on my keys, and I tend to carry my Leafstorm more often. Sorry if the picture looks weird, I’m still toying around with this borrowed DSLR. Thanks for looking! High-res

I’m back! I’m back after finishing one of my toughest academic years to date, and I’m humbled and thrilled to find that EDC has been selected as one of TIME’s Best Blogs of 2011! This couldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for my loyal supporters and contributors. Thank you so much. Before this gets any cornier I’ll just start going through my submissions and queuing up content for you guys. Thanks for your patience and carry on~ High-res

Victorinox Swisstool Spirit S & Lamy Safari
Picked up the Swisstool for myself and my roommate got me the Lamy for my birthday ^_^. Swisstool is quality — just wish it had scissors on it. Otherwise, feels substantial and I like the grip both open and closed. The Lamy is super lightweight and cool too. I just don’t know how it will hold up in pocket carry, clipped, because the cap pops off (no screw top), so there’s the risk of it uncapping and bleeding into your pocket… Oh and sorry for the dust, my DIY lightbox has been collecting some. Should I buy an entry level DSLR and try to step up my macro photography game? High-res

A Request…

For future submissions, please read the submission guidelines and be sure to include item descriptions (brand/model is more helpful than ‘knife’ or ‘wallet’) so other readers have somewhere to start in doing their upgrade research… Brief descriptions of where you’re from or what you do are welcome so as to provide context to your pocket dump and make it easier for me to make commentary if necessary. Thanks for your support! 

Thanks for everything and carry on…

To the loyal readers of the site, as well as new followers — I can only apologize for what I feel is the best course of action to take. You may have noticed a decrease in posts as a result of my other personal commitments to my academic and extracurricular responsibilities. In light of the recent attention and coverage from other blogs (thanks for spreading the word), I’ve been simply overwhelmed with the amount of emails, questions and submissions to this site. In the past, I would’ve been more than happy to do my best to help everyone looking for answers, but at this scale I’m afraid I don’t have the resources to do this. Furthermore, while I know it’s dangerous to read your own press, I can’t help but be hurt by the hateful comments people are leaving about this site and more importantly, the readers and contributors. What started as a personal place to catalog a simple hobby of mine, which later turned into a medium to spread preparedness, has now become a target for hatred and criticism. I wanted this site to generate useful discussion and not attract hate, so for this reason I have even less motivation to continue here at EDC. Since its onset there have been many other similar blogs on tumblr that do more or less the same thing here, so do not worry — there will be content elsewhere! I may come back, maybe tomorrow, maybe once this academic quarter ends, maybe never… Nevertheless, let me take this moment to thank everyone who supported me and everyone who hated on the site. I’ll leave you with my EDC as of yesterday just as a timestamp of sorts.

Take care and carry on,
Bernard
