Ever since a buddy of mine came home from Gunsite with a Spyderco and a Surefire - sometime around ‘92 - I’ve been EDC’ing. And finally I have a selection that actually works I can manage to carry around each and every day. So:

  • iPhone… Good for everything except calling people 
  • Keys, various. The ragged Ladybug now sports a chisel point. She’ll be replaced eventually.
  • Wallet - as I’m in the #1 cashless country, I seldom - if ever - carry cash. For good or bad. Hence the credit-cards-only kind of thing.
  • Zebralight H51. He. Hehehe… This thing is simply silly. 200 lumen from a AA battery. Nuff said
  • HAK - the cheapest (440 steel) available, but with some ninja sharpening, it gets to hairpopping sharp.
  • Snus! FTW! As long as the Brussels-tribe will let us have it…

And there you have it - nothing fancy and no SAK. I’ve messed around with all kinds of multitools in the past and it turns out (empirically/statistically) that, for me, it’s not worth the effort.

Editor’s Note: Pretty interesting carry here… I wouldn’t expect a hideaway knife to be paired with something less tactical like a Zebralight, to be honest. However, it still totally works, and I’m glad you’ve found a configuration that you like. It’s all fairly minimal, right down to the wallet. You could probably go even slimmer with those cards if you used a clip, but at the cost of easy organization. The choice of knives in your EDC — a more tactical, self-defense type fixed blade and a relatively innocuous looking keychain folder complement each other well and serve different purposes, so I like that setup. The Zebralight is a less common option for many EDCers but in my opinion, without good reason. The specs on those lights especially for their size made them very impressive when they first came out. They still stand out as some of the best headlamps around, and are just overall a nice alternative to look for in a light if you’re not looking for something very “conventional” in a light. Nice setup. Thanks for sharing!

Kershaw Pico

Sometimes you take one look at a knife and just know it would be perfect for EDC. The Kershaw Pico is one of those knives. Designed by knifemaker Les George, the Pico is sized right, uses good materials, and fits both your carry and your budget.

Its 2.9” drop point blade fits most tasks, and its compact length lends itself to everyday carry (not to mention most legal length restrictions). Made from hardy 8Cr13MoV steel, the blade comes with a double finish — satin on the flat edges, and stonewashed on the grind. Pair that with the polished, oversized pivot and the Pico brings a cool gray aesthetic to any EDC.

Like many Kershaw knives, the Pico has a SpeedSafe-assisted flipper action to spring out the blade from its bead-blasted steel handles. An integrated frame lock keeps its blade secure, and a reversible, deep-carry pocket clip lets you carry the Pico your way. Add this solid slicer to your carry by clicking on the link below.
