My mind was blown when I realized that Izaya Orihara from the anime series Durarara! keeps what appears to be a Spyderco CentofanteIII as his EDC knife. I’ve been an anime fan longer than I’ve been into EDC and knives so I didn’t make the connection until now.
Editor’s Disclaimer: lol so this type of post almost further reinforces arguments against EDCers with knives as posing as mall ninjas… and probably a very few percentage of you will appreciate/understand this post
when I say that my life could probably be turned into an anime about an EDC maleblogger engineering nerd on a university campus struggling to nanpa girls to no avail despite having the tools on hand to fix their broken sunglasses, share an umbrella in the rain, light up a dark and scary road while walking one home after a long night at the library, and I’ll just stop now
The new HEST/F Urban by DPx Gear is more than just a knife. With so many multifunction design elements, it’s practically a multitool. The jimping on the back of the blade, normally used for grip and control, can strip common wires for quick electrical fixes. The blade notch designed for rapid deployment, doubles as a bottle opener as well. The HEST/F Urban keeps you ready for emergency situations too, with a 440C stainless steel glass breaker that rounds out its survival functions. It’s still a knife at heart—and a well-designed one at that. It features a hollow-ground, sub-3” S30V stainless steel blade with a titanium alloy frame lock. A replaceable stainless steel tip on the frame helps protect the lock from the wear and tear of hard use this knife was made for. The HEST/F Urban is completely designed, sourced, and built to last in the United States. You can reserve one of the last few remaining knives at the Kickstarter link below.
