Best Left of Field EDC Substitutes.

For example; Instead of a fancy torch/flashlight, I have a Lego character LED keyring. These may not be the brightest portable flash light around but as far a key ring lights go they're very solid and have remarkable battery life.
So I guess that begs the question, what weird item do you carry?

I used to carry a dummy 5.56 I had recapped with a roud and made into a keychain. It was the last round I fired before getting out. I got tired of lugging around a bunch of "stuff" a while back, and went minimalist in a big way. I still carry it, but it's clipped off in my EDC truck bag with my other stuff.

Instead of a nice G-Shock, Citizen, or Seiko, I carry a $5 dollar Walmart no-name watch. It has held up for around four years so far (submersion in ocean water, pool water, getting covered in primer/paint/silicone sealant, etc.) and it keeps ticking, no reason to replace it yet. Every other piece of my gear is though out, extensively researched, and top-notch, except for the watch, which is honestly just fine for me.

Instead of a tacticool pen, I carry a cut down cheapie from one of the hotels I've stayed in. I give away a cool stylus/ball point in my classes, but I don't carry one except in my computer bag. The current cheapie pen appears on my EDC items pics in my profile. I have had expensive compact pens in the past and they all 'went south' in one way or another. I have lost the current cheapie pen twice, but it turned up again both times... go figure.
