I’ve always had a thing for gadgets, and so, I’ve been “EDCing” since I was a kid without “knowing it.” Quote-unquote. I stumbled across this site a little while back, though, and had my eyes opened to the care with which people were approaching the philosophy. It’s inspired me to put some real thought into what exactly I bother carrying and how I carry it. So here’s what my carry has both grown into and been refined down to:  

1969 Submariner that I’m “borrowing” off my dad. For good. On a Maratac Mil-Nato strap.
Bic Lighter
Benchmade Mini Grip
Pilot G2 0.38
Notepad
Custom leather money fold my friend Des made for me.
Burt’s Bees, Medicated, slightly murdered a la gaffer’s tape.
iPhone 4
Keychain - County Comm tweezers / Pocket Tool X Brewzer / house key / extra leash string (classic bro move) / car key / 4Sevens Quark Mini 123 T6 
High fives (not pictured)

Editor’s Note: I really like this carry for its minimalism, simple utility, and relatively affordable choices of gear with just enough individuality and creativity. The Bic and G2 work well enough to be EDC staples for many, but are also easily replaced if lost or broken. The Mini Grip is fairly affordable, ambidextrous, and has a short blade length that makes it accessible to those even living in states with stricter knife laws. The keychain setup is packed with utility but remains streamlined and with strong retention. The custom leather wallet and the changes to your Sub’s strap and your taped off lip balm add individuality but maintain function. I think the taped lip balm is a good idea, you could probably carry some duct tape or a bit of paracord with you the same way. Good stuff, good ideas and thanks for sharing!

Swiza D04 Swiss Pocket Knife

There's no question the Swiss are master machinists, creating some of the best knives, tools, and watches for everyday carry. Some brands you may recognize more than most--especially for pocket multitools--but here's one you may not have heard of before. Established in 1904, Swiza's been making tools and everyday equipment for 112 years. The Swiza D04 is one of their signature multitools, and from its silhouette alone, you know this isn't your usual Swiss knife.

The handle's ergonomic shape gives you a sure grip with a soft touch, allowing you to wield its five folding tools with comfort. Its main 2.95" blade deploys with a nail nick slot and is made from an alloy of chrome and molybdenum to give it extra durability. A hardened, stainless steel awl lets you pierce leather or score and indent materials. Cans are no problem with the D04's opener, which also includes a No. 1 flathead screwdriver on its tip. There's a bottle opener on its other end, pulling double duty with a No. 3 flathead screwdriver. And on its back, a No. 1 Phillips screwdriver covers the last of your driving needs. The D04 also comes with a pair of tweezers with beveled tips for more delicate tasks.

Add a touch of Swiss-made comfort to your everyday tasks and pick up the Swiza D04 from the Amazon link below.
