Often I find I need a mirror for checking my teeth for stuck food, my schnoz, etc. There are other good survival uses like starting a fire, for signaling if lost in the woods (which where I live would never ever happen) but you get my point. I've used the reflection on my phone before and the camera trick works but I want something less awkward and simple. If wanting to carry this with me in my pocket or wallet then glass wouldn't be the best idea. I'm liking that third bullet. Sounds perfect for my needs.

Anybody carry a mirror with them? If so, let's see them! What's everyone's preference? Metal? Acrylic?

Haven't really used it for anything. Same could be said about the compass on my keyring ;)

I hear ya! One of the struggles of collecting for my essential EDC build is needing a certain something many times over, finally getting it, and never using it!

I think for the purposes of what I would use a mirror for I'd get plenty of uses out of it, especially if it can be carried in my wallet.

I carry a small signalling mirror in my 'pocket items' when backpacking, hunting. I don't EDC the mirror.

Does mirror polish count on a knife blade?

Kidding, I don't have the time or patience for putting a mirror polish down.

No EDC mirror, but I need to check into that dog tag mirror
