Tell us how you got into EDC/Knives: I grew up hunting and fishing. My dad taught me a lot and one of the most important things was to always have a knife with me while camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, etc….. As I grew up, I learned that you never know when you’ll need a knife or screwdriver, wrench, etc…. I really got into EDC when I came across the many Instagram pages and individual accounts dedicated to EDC and knives.
Product Review for Your Favorite Knife: Kershaw Cryo II. Smooth and easy to flip and has a nice, strong and sharp blade. Affordable for fans of Rick Hinderer designs without the Rick Hinderer budget.
Product Review for an Awesome Bottle Opener: A great bottle opener is my Original Trayvax Wallet. It’s sturdy and very convenient. Plus, being a wallet, it’s with me everywhere I go.
Product Review for your Most Used Prybar: It’s a toss-up between my Minh Doh Titanium M Bar or my Griffin Pocket Tool XL. I use both about the same and have one or the other with me all the time. They come in handy for lots of different tasks. I’ve actually used the M bar while fishing to hold line while I retrieve a hook from a fish mouth or two.
Is there another piece of gear you never leave the house
without? (i.e., flashlight, hank, pen, etc): I always have my carbon fiber Keybar with my. I have the regular titanium Griffin Pocket Tool installed in it so no matter what, I know I always have a tool at the ready for many tasks. Second, I never leave home without my Leatherman Super Tool 300. That is like my left arm and has helped me out of many jams.
What else do you want the world to know?: I am an amateur angler with
my own YouTube channel. The important part here is that being an angler or fisherman, I am always in need of a good pocket tool or knife while doing what I do.
