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.
I’ll also be adding smaller backups to my keychain and I’ve detailed those future additions below.
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.
Few knives manage to pack in features while still maintaining a reasonable price tag. Kershaw aims to change that with the Link, what they believe to be the perfect “link” between quality and price. Usually a lower price tag means a smaller blade, but that’s not the case with the no-compromise 3.25” edge on the Link. Quickly open the knife with help from Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assist mechanism and flipper lever. The blade is securely held in place by a liner lock, and easily closed with one hand. Wrap it up with a stonewashed blade for increased scratch resistance, and textured glass-filled nylon scales to ensure a firm grip. If you’ve been looking for a budget folder with an impressive spec sheet, consider this knife for your new EDC.
