hmm... ignoring WHAT i do with my EDC... that eliminates most of the fun of talking about it.
i guess where i work -- Alaska -- impacts my EDC by not really causing any sense of restriction. the only restriction is the rain/salt water, which makes me much more inclined to carry H1. it's a "must" for outdoors activities. i compromise -- the chokwe and mili come with me to work quite a bit (when i'm not expecting to be outdoors), but i always have an H1 knife (or two, or more) handy in my bag, or on my person, just in case there's an oil spill emergency, or i find myself cutting near water... and 3 out of four seasons in the year, when spontaneous fishing adventures are prone to occur... gotta have H1.
i'm still waiting for the dressy H1 knife that can look good in my pocket at work, and accommodate sudden, unexpected oil spill or fishing excitement. (H1 centofante would be PERFECT!)
people here don't see knives as any sort of threat... at least, not when they're in the pockets of responsible adults, or being used for a normal cutting task. i don't think kids are allowed to have them in schools, but i think probably some older kids have swiss army knives / multitools in their pockets anyway, and it's no big deal.
