New Knife EDC

To celebrate my 3-year anniversary writing here at everydaycarry.com, I decided to purchase myself a new knife to commemorate the occasion. Pro tip: if you don't want to end up buying a Sebenza, don't ask your buddy to borrow one to check it out.

I've been carrying my phone sans-case, and it's nice to be able to feel the design that Apple intended when holding the phone. It's not buried within a case, making it heavier or clunky. It is quite slippery though, hence the small piece of gaffer's tape on the side.

The Sinn 856 is probably my ideal EDC watch - excellent design, 40mm case, great legibility, durable case, excellent water resistance, and the look totally changes depending on what strap you put it on.

The CRK Sebenza Insigno is super impressive. Every single bevel, the lockup, construction, fit and finish, sharpness, grind on the blade...everything...perfect. You've heard a ton about this knife, and it definitely lives up to the hype.

The Tactile Turn Slider is titanium coated with black DLC. It's a great little EDC pen with a fun mechanism.

Foursevens' Preon P1 is still my go-to light because of the size, nice pocket clip, tail click, and standard AAA battery.

The gaffers tape idea is pretty great. May have to try that myself. Tragically, it'd have to be on a 6s.

Awesome crew you've got in your pocket. I made sebenzas for sixteen years, up until mid September '17, and when i left, CRK's quality had never been better.
