My Everyday Carry
I try to keep things as pared down as possible since I don’t often carry a bag. As a studio photographer, having a knife is incredibly handy for cutting seamless, scraping and slicing, as well as cutting up food for lunch. I took the pocket clip off of my Dragonfly because keep it in the bottom of my pocket—NYC laws don’t allow visible knives. I love this little knife. Great blade shape and ergonomics and the G10 handle is a perfect color and texture. I have been surprisingly pleased with the Poetics Atmosphere case, it doesn’t add much size to the phone and the rubberized edge has absorbed many drops and protects the screen from landing on any flat surfaces. The Canon powershot S line are great EDC cameras, small enough for a pocket with fully manual controls and RAW capability so you can tweak things later if you have to. I used to carry more expensive pens, but lately the Varsity does everything I want it to and I don’t have to worry about losing it or having to find a specific cartridge when I run out of ink. Cinamon toothpicks and teatree oil lip balm keep things fresh. This R&B was the smallest, simplest high-quality leather bifold I could find, and it does everything I need a wallet to do.

There's no question the Swiss are master machinists, creating some of the best knives, tools, and watches for everyday carry. Some brands you may recognize more than most--especially for pocket multitools--but here's one you may not have heard of before. Established in 1904, Swiza's been making tools and everyday equipment for 112 years. The Swiza D04 is one of their signature multitools, and from its silhouette alone, you know this isn't your usual Swiss knife.
The handle's ergonomic shape gives you a sure grip with a soft touch, allowing you to wield its five folding tools with comfort. Its main 2.95" blade deploys with a nail nick slot and is made from an alloy of chrome and molybdenum to give it extra durability. A hardened, stainless steel awl lets you pierce leather or score and indent materials. Cans are no problem with the D04's opener, which also includes a No. 1 flathead screwdriver on its tip. There's a bottle opener on its other end, pulling double duty with a No. 3 flathead screwdriver. And on its back, a No. 1 Phillips screwdriver covers the last of your driving needs. The D04 also comes with a pair of tweezers with beveled tips for more delicate tasks.
