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.

Spyderco Para 2
HDS Tactical Clicky (140 Lumens)
Seiko SKX007 on Zulu Dive Strap
Apple iPhone 4
Keys

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.

The “holy grail”—it's the elusive, be-all and end-all item at the top of your wishlist that's just outside the realm of obtainable. As EDCers, we've all got that one knife we aspire to own. And more often than not, it's custom made, bordering on “if money wasn’t an option” territory.

You've seen every picture of that knife on Instagram pining for it, you've read every review, and you've even re-calculated your budget over and over again. And after all that, you still can't see yourself dropping two grand on a knife.

But don't worry, there is hope. More and more custom knife makers are teaming up with manufacturers you know and trust to bring their designs much more within reach in the form of collaboration production knives.

We've rounded up our favorite (relatively) affordable grails from 2016 in this guide. With any of these picks, you’re getting as close to all the design, functionality, and looks of a custom, on a blade you can use without worrying about its cost.
