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.

Magpul DAKA Essential Wallet

When you carry a traditional (and possibly bulky) wallet, it's tempting to load it up with more than what you need. Having extra card slots makes it all too easy. So if you're having trouble paring down your cards and cash, try carrying a wallet that encourages you to do it. True to its name, the Magpul DAKA Essential Wallet helps you carry just the essentials thanks to its lean, considered design.

It has room for up to six cards and some emergency cash in its slim and lightweight polymer fabric frame. At just 3mm thin when empty, it's a wallet that stays discreet and low profile in your pocket. With its rounded corners and smooth edges, slipping it in and out of your pocket is a breeze as well.

Magpul designed this polymer wallet to stand up to both hard use and the elements like they did with their popular phone cases and EDC pouches in the DAKA line. The technical fabric itself has water-resistant properties, keeping your essentials dry from most everything short of immersing it in water. And if it does get wet, the polymer also boasts an anti-slip texture to keep it in place.

Unclutter your wallet carry with a switch to the Magpul DAKA Essential wallet to bring just the essentials every day.
