Great site! As a graphic designer, I wanted to submit something a little bit different. I’m from Norfolk, VA and drive a 40-minute commute to work. This is also my first real job, so this carry is basically from a student’s budget. 

Blackberry Curve
Pentel Quicker Clicker
G-Shock Glide
WD Hard Drive
Wallet
Moleskine
Ring – Earring Plugs
Keys
Spyderco Leaf Storm
Chapstick
Apple Macbook Pro
iPod Nano

Besides my keys, wallet and jewelry/watch, everything goes into a H&M laptop bag. Within the bag, a majority of the smaller items are organized in a Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag. A few things were not included in the illustration, such as a small first aid kit, several usb flash drives, several markers/pens, and a microfiber cloth.    

I am hunting for a useful/minimal keychain tool and flashlight to complete my carry. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Editor’s Note: Hey JP, very cool presentation, great work! I appreciate the use of a woodgrain backdrop too, haha. I can see the utility of your carry given your position as a graphic designer, but as you mentioned, I agree you could round out the carry with some tools on your keychain. My go-to combination is a small, single-cell twisty light and a multitool of sorts. I currently use a 4sevens Mini123 with a primary battery as they last a long time and as a twisty light may offer more reliability (less moving parts to break) paired with a Victorinox Manager, which includes many commonly needed tools including a pen! On a student budget, however, you can invest in a more affordable 1xAAA light like a Fenix E05 and use a simple Victorinox SAK Classic. I’m not too partial to one-piece multitools but YMMV.

To the other readers, what keychain tool setup do you carry? Leave a comment and make some suggestions!

Thanks for sharing your work — I can imagine some people would be very interested in getting one of these made for their own carries :3. Keep it up and carry on.

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.
