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.
