Congratulations on an iconic blog. I humbly submit the following. Barring the occasional variance, this is what I have on me everyday:
Colonna Slimmy Wallet
Prodesign Prescription Glasses
Classic Zippo with Z-Plus Insert
Keys with Spyderco Spin as fob, Atwood Poltergeist, VersaTi whistle, and 4Sevens Quark123Ti
iPhone 4, Magpul case
B&W C5 earset, in a tin I got at Maido
Countycomm Embassy Pen in stainless
Plain cotton handkerchief
Editor’s Note: Definitely a cool carry — a nice blend of ruggedness and class! The use of a small folding knife with pocket clip as your method of retaining keys is pretty clever. I notice you keep it on a McGizmo clip too, so you can use your keychain tools or your primary knife without the extra bulk of the knife, keyring or vice versa in the way of your handling. I like the improvisation of a hinged tin as an earphones case — there’s just so much versatility in those tins and they cost next to nothing! The Datejust, Embassy Pen, other stainless/Ti tools are great. You’ve got your bases covered here, and the overall silver/brown motif looks good with the setup! Thanks for sharing!
The new HEST/F Urban by DPx Gear is more than just a knife. With so many multifunction design elements, it’s practically a multitool. The jimping on the back of the blade, normally used for grip and control, can strip common wires for quick electrical fixes. The blade notch designed for rapid deployment, doubles as a bottle opener as well. The HEST/F Urban keeps you ready for emergency situations too, with a 440C stainless steel glass breaker that rounds out its survival functions. It’s still a knife at heart—and a well-designed one at that. It features a hollow-ground, sub-3” S30V stainless steel blade with a titanium alloy frame lock. A replaceable stainless steel tip on the frame helps protect the lock from the wear and tear of hard use this knife was made for. The HEST/F Urban is completely designed, sourced, and built to last in the United States. You can reserve one of the last few remaining knives at the Kickstarter link below.
