I love your site, I submitted my edc a while ago and this is how far I’ve gotten. I either carry the Wave or my Kershaw Leek when I want to go lightweight.
Editor’s Note: Here’s a simple, well-rounded carry that doesn’t really break the bank. The Fenix and Wave combination should cover many bases, not take up too much pocket space, and last a long time. The E11 is a decent, affordable and simple torch that runs on easily sourced batteries. Your keychain is kept minimal with a backup one piece multitool and an LED, which is good — I’d probably consider swapping out that carabiner for a different kind of retention clip though (but with such a lightweight keyring, you might be okay there). The Space Pen is a classic EDC staple and the Magpul is a good choice of case too. To be honest there’s not much in the way of outstanding high-end gear, but it’s good to remind readers that you can configure an EDC for pretty much any budget and any lifestyle. The advantage of more affordable gear is that they’re also easily replaceable if they get lost. Just be aware that there is a difference between cheap and affordable! You did a great job of that. Thanks for sharing.

Every once in a while, you’ll come across gear that looks so good you can’t wait to get your hands on it. That’s the case with the new CRKT Outrage—and not just for its strikingly good looks, but for its thoughtful ergonomics as well. It’s designed by Ken Onion, whose knives are well-regarded in the EDC community for the way they look like they just look belong in your hand. The Outrage accomplishes this with a lightweight 6061 aluminum handle, deep finger guard, and excellent top jimping. These ensure excellent control and retention of the blade during use. The knife flips open quickly and smoothly with a simple flick of your finger thanks to CRKT's low-friction, IKBS ball-bearing pivot technology. Once open, you'll find its 3.19” modified drop-point blade offers a strong piercing tip and a curved belly for slicing and cutting. And for all its high-value design and ergonomics, its accessible price is far from outrageous. You can grab the CRKT Outrage for your everyday carry at the link below.
