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.

Dango Tactical Wallet

While there are many wallet multitools out there, they don't always work as well as you'd expect. That's because they compromise on performance for portability to let you carry them in a standard credit card slot. For best results, the wallet and multitool work together as a system.

The Dango Tactical wallet delivers just that. It's a wallet that integrates storage with a multitool that's actually useful. It has space for a mix of up to 12 cards and some cash within its genuine leather pouch and back plate. These two components stay attached to the wallet via a silicone band wrapped around the frame. The multitool fits within that frame, and fulfills 14 popular EDC functions, including a screwdriver, bottle opener, and a hex wrench. It's also made out of high carbon stainless steel, allowing the integral knife and saw to stay sharp. The Dango has all this while keeping things small and lightweight due to its 6061 aluminum frame.

What makes the Dango special is how the wallet itself makes effective use of the multitool. It has detents that allow the multitool to jut out in use, turning the wallet into a solid grip surface. You'll have firm control over the tool, and enough leverage to actually do things with it as well.

You can go ahead and consolidate your personal wallet and mulitool carry with confidence with the Dango Tactical wallet. Secure your own at the Kickstarter link below.
