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.
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!
*Note: the objects are not to scale.
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.
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.
