My modest carry - 

iPhone in a Power Support case
Makr slim flap wallet 
Kaweco fountain pen
The Hill-Side floral discharge handkerchief
Kershaw Japanese-made VG10 on a custom leather/brass retrieval I made
Hamilton King Scuba - automatic and swiss made on a maratac strap.

Everything (besides the iPhone) is made in Japan, the USA, Germany or Switzerland. I’m a fan of quality goods. I also have a Japanese kaijin hook for my keys. Keep up the great blog.

Editor’s Note: Here’s a very handsome carry that doesn’t seem like much out of the ordinary, but actually features some high quality gear. I like the retrieval lanyard for your otherwise clipless Kershaw — both for its functionality and the nice choice of leather and brass that lends well to the rest of your carry’s “aesthetic,” so good job with that. I like your auto for EDC, it makes sense to go with an auto if you’ll keep it on your wrist every day. While I like the Kaweco fountain pen line and have a few myself, I personally don’t think they’re ideal for heavier duty EDC. It sort of sits in your pocket without a pocket clip for easy retrieval, it’s a little slower to start writing with considering you need to unscrew the cap and put the loose cap away, the plastic body might crack, ink might leak, etc. But in the context of this carry, I can see it working just fine. Maybe a small notebook would synergize with your pen (Field Notes, Moleskine etc) and round out this carry. Thanks for sharing — I’m sure EDCers looking to put together a “gentleman’s carry” could draw some cues from this.

Trayvax Black Element Wallet

An interesting thing happened when we featured the Trayvax Axis a while back—we found that our readers who carry one are exceptionally happy with Trayvax and all their wallets. So when we heard Trayvax made updates to their flagship Element wallet, we had to take a look.

The new Element comes with all the features of the original. Top-grain, oil-tanned leather make up its main enclosure, and secures onto the stainless steel skeleton with mil-spec 550 paracord. The frame now comes in a much-requested black colorway, with a Cerakote finish that improves durability and RFID protection. The Element is sized for EDC at 4.5”x2.8”x0.5”, and designed to carry 3-10 cards and 1-5 folded bills either in your pocket or off a lanyard.

The black version of the Element is made in the USA and comes in Mississippi Mud (dark brown), Tobaco Brown, and Canyon Red leather (pictured above). If you want a rugged wallet that both carries minimally and ages elegantly, pick one up direct from Trayvax at the link below.
