    Another travel to the past with a Synapse 25 and a Small Shop Bag

    This summer seems to be about castles and such things. We have a lovely castle-ruin in oure airia that we went to two days ago:

    As we where four children and three grown ups that day I decided to have a picnick in a Small Shop Bag.

    And here, just for the fun of it, a last shot of my trusted S25:

    Thank you for posting. Nice photos.
    Very interested in your packing list/photos for your S25 on this particular outing.

    @Ilkyway, you take the nicest looking photos, and I think your gray Synapse is one of my favorite objects that you photograph, especially with its UV accents. Whether posed against snow, in a grassy field, or hanging on a wrought iron fence, it always looks good. I definitely need to take lessons from you! :)

    Great photos. Based on your earlier pictures of the grey/UV S25 I also bought one and have put the same UV zip pulls on it. It's getting its first outing with my laptop down to the coffee shop today.

    I carry a large shop bag in the bottom pocket and its North West Sky. That lighter shade of grey dyneema goes really well with the grey cordura.

    So the Synapse 25 comes with a time travel device? My Dyneema S25 must be caught in a quantum flux displacement field, because my time travel device has not appeared yet.

    Ilkyway, very nice photos, indeed. Thank you for sharing! elisa

    Perseffect you are right that Sky Dyneema works great with the grey of the Synapse. The Small Shop Bag I carry in there for unexpected shop-events is Sky too and they are a lovely pair.

    I might feel brave and post a picture of the contant later. But it did not change much from my last contant picture. The time-travel devices gladly takes up no space. It is lokated in another dimention.

    Okay I play but I have you all know that I am fully aware of my crazyness. This is NOT what I take into the past but what I have with me every day. On top of this is my Side Effect which carrys the same contant since for ever.

    Here is the content of the Side Effect that was/is around my hips. Although right now I use an Aubergine one:

    Edit: small bids and bobs have changed: different knife in the SE for example.

    As always you are right: Bark River PSK Elmax I was debating between this one and the Little Caper. My goal was a smal, non agressive looking knife that I could take out to cut an apple or any other food without having people gasp.

    The pink might be a bit over the too there but when I debated the color people pointed out: no one will ever whant to steel the pink one from you :-). I had the two foulders I carry around for quite a while but I could not bring myself to cut food with them for fear of getting that into the fouldingmechanism. I hope the Elmax will work well. As I understand it it is no knife-steel. We will see how it holds up.

    (Ups... Did you want to know all this... I got carried away :-))

    @Ilkyway-I hope I'm with you at the time of the zombie apocalypse! Food (chocolate!) and defensive weapons!

    Thanks for sharing your pics (the one of the S25 with shallow depth of field is particularly fetching) and your pack contents. :)

    Ilkyway, where's your pouch for your Oyster card? Another travel to the past with a Synapse 25 and a Small Shop Bag I recommend a luggage tag attached to a keystrap.

    Red face

    Pokilany Ceepee keeps mentioning that Oystercard too... I wondwe WHY :-)
    I think I will go with your suggestion and use a Luggatag for it. And than I attach it into my SE so there will be very few pockets to search through.

    @Pokilani, I just hope the rest of her family are more organised. Finding 4 Oyster cards each time will take up most of the weekend :D

    I was considering attaching the Oyster card to the chocolate ........ funny how she never loses that! ;)

    The PSK is a solid piece. I have not used Elmax myself but what I've read indicates it should outperform S30V in toughness and edgeholding, particularly at the hardness Bark River runs it. As for cutting food with folders, I understand the apprehension but it's not something I'd worry about that much unless you wouldn't have the chance to clean the knife within a reasonable amount of time. That Bradley folder in M4 will patina from some foods but getting something in the pivot shouldn't be anything a good rinse and dry can't fix.
