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!

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.
