My everyday carry
I’m an Environmental Engineer from Salt Lake City. My job keeps me on the road about 50% of the time. The Juice Pack keeps my phone charged when I’m traveling, The Moleskine is for expense report receipts (my admin loves that I keep them organized). The Memo Pad and Space Pen are great for taking field notes, even in the rain. The watch looks great and cost about $6000 less than a real one. I love the Gerber Artifact but the TSA doesn’t, so I got the Shard for air travel. They Mighty Wallet is made from Tyvek; light, durable and low profile. Unfortunately, they quit making the mini version so I’ll have to make it last.
The Benchmade North Fork is a handsome folding knife designed for hunting, but it has all the right features to make for a great everyday carry blade as well. Its most noticeable trait is the Dymondwood scales. The North Fork’s handle is made from wood that’s been vacuum-impregnated with resin to increase durability. With the added strength from this treatment, there’s no need to worry about the wood chipping, drying out, or getting wet. Its satin-finished drop point blade uses S30V steel and features two jimped sections — one by the thumb grip and one closer to the tip — for ultimate blade control. The North Fork offers fully ambidextrous use options thanks to the AXIS lock mechanism, dual thumb stud deployment, and reversible pocket clip. Built on heavy-duty stainless steel liners, this is a knife to carry into the woods or around town for years to come.
