I was attracted to these items because they work well and are extremely robust in both design and function. I consider this to be a “minimalist” carry although each individual items is quite beefy and fills the hand nicely.

HDS Tactical Clicky (140 Lumens)
Seiko SKX007 on Zulu Dive Strap
Apple iPhone 4

I’ll also be adding smaller backups to my keychain and I’ve detailed those future additions below. 

Fisher Trekker Space Pen
Arc AAA Premium Flashlight
Leatherman Micra

Stay tuned!

Editor’s Note: I totally agree with your assessment that this carry is minimal, but beefy in execution and design. The SKX007 is a great offering from Seiko, the Para 2 is a super solid EDC blade, and the Tactical Clicky is feature-packed and pretty much bombproof. I appreciate the durability, robustness and quality over quantity themes in this EDC. Your keyring remains minimal as well, and of the gear options you’ve listed as your backups they make excellent complements to your current carry. I’m curious as to how you keep a wallet or how you attach/pocket your keys, but with such few items and access to pocket clips I imagine you handle it just fine. Keep it up and thanks for sharing.

Blue Ridge Knives Zancudo

When it comes to gear, most of the time you get what you pay for. Sometimes, you get much more. The ESEE-designed Blue Ridge Zancudo framelock folder is one of those great values in pocket knives. At around 30 bucks, it's often been recommended by our readers as one of the best budget knives for your EDC.

The Zancudo rightfully makes for a solid EDC knife thanks to its useful blade shape, pocket-friendly design, and robust materials. At a modest 3”, its AUS-8 blade has plenty of cutting edge to be versatile enough for tactical, outdoors, and everyday applications. It deploys via dual thumbstuds and locks up with a stainless steel framelock. You won't often find a framelock in too many knives of this class, but you'll enjoy the extra security and slimmer profile it provides. A lightweight G10 scale graces the front of the knife, while a lanyard hole and large pocket clip on the back give you multiple carry options.

If you're not chasing the latest and greatest blade steels or advanced deployment mechanisms and just want a good, all-around EDC blade, start here. The Zancudo's also a thinner alternative to the popular Ontario RATII if you prefer a framelock over a liner lock. You can pick one up in one of many blade/scale color configs at the link below.
