My everyday carry
Service Tech/Road Manager in Bay Area/San Francisco, CA
Both my Spyderco & Gerber knives are priceless & used heavily nearly everyday for cutting who knows what free from under cars. The keygrip make my key carry bulletproof & the iamakey has all my schedules, training docs, hardware assignments, etc. The handmade leather pouch (for cash & cards) was something I picked up on a road trip through New Mexico. I chose items with some weight to them so I’ll know when they aren’t there & stuff I know will take a drop & not shatter.
Back to work…
Machine Era made a strong first impression among the EDC community with their elegantly utilitarian minimalist wallet. Since then, they've been expanding their product line with the same design language and precise craftsmanship to other daily essentials. They now offer a black anodized aluminum version of their machined pen. It has the same pocketable form factor, rugged construction, threaded cap, and crowd-favorite Pilot G2 refill of their original brass version, but opts for light weight over heft for those of you who find your pockets on the heavy side. Don't worry, brass fans, Machine Era debuted a solid brass quick release keychain fitted with 10 lb pull neodymium magnets to give your keys and tools security, accessibility, and a bit of bling factor to boot.
