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)

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.

Tactica Talon

When you've got good gear and you use it hard, all the scratches and scuffs that come with it are just the cost of doing business. Sometimes, the battle scars and patina make your gear look even better. But scratched up phone screens? Not so much. The Tactica Talon, on the other hand, is gentle on your tech but tough on EDC tasks thanks to its innovative, non-scratch composite materials. And with 17 tools packed into its unibody design, that's just scratching the surface.

Besides its materials, what sets the Talon apart is how it handles bits. You can actually store two bits inside the Talon's unibody frame via a soft elastomer latch that locks them in place. The Talon even offers two ways to drive bits depending on the task at hand: either by using the tip of the storage compartment for more control, or by turning the tool sideways and using the secondary socket if you need more torque.

The rest of its tools should handle most of your day-to-day tasks, with its wide-mouthed bottle opener, TSA-friendly box opener, rulers, and set of imperial and metric wrenches. For EDC, it's equally well-suited to ride on a keychain or deep in your pocket, given how its polymer construction is soft to the touch and 40% lighter than titanium.

The Talon is available as a reward on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery of this December. It's Tactica's second successful campaign to date, and the campaign is already fully funded. Grab a Talon for your everyday carry at the link below.
