Editor’s Note: Hey Rick, you have some good ideas in this carry here… It’s good to pair your pens with a moleskine, but also clever to tuck it away in your wallet (I’d just advise against sitting on it with that added thickness!). Good looks on opting for an inexpensive and practical snap shackle as your keychain, and I like that you separated the tools from the keys in a modular way. I have had some issues with cable rings carrying heavier kits, so beware of that. Lastly I wanted to highlight that SRM 704. It’s not the highest quality but it is still a really good value for under $10 or so as a beater EDC knife. My only issue with it is how quickly it gets dull… Thanks for sharing and carry on!

8 Custom-Designed Knives You Can Actually Afford

The “holy grail”—it's the elusive, be-all and end-all item at the top of your wishlist that's just outside the realm of obtainable. As EDCers, we've all got that one knife we aspire to own. And more often than not, it's custom made, bordering on “if money wasn’t an option” territory.

You've seen every picture of that knife on Instagram pining for it, you've read every review, and you've even re-calculated your budget over and over again. And after all that, you still can't see yourself dropping two grand on a knife.

But don't worry, there is hope. More and more custom knife makers are teaming up with manufacturers you know and trust to bring their designs much more within reach in the form of collaboration production knives.

We've rounded up our favorite (relatively) affordable grails from 2016 in this guide. With any of these picks, you’re getting as close to all the design, functionality, and looks of a custom, on a blade you can use without worrying about its cost.
