Hi, for starters, great site!
So, this is my light EDC. There are a couple of no-name things I carry and some are eBay ordered, so i’m not sure of the names.
I’m a Croatia based web designer/photographer and I also have a construction company. I’ve been in the construction business for as long as I can remember (it’s a family business) and that’s how my passionate addiction for EDC started.
There isn’t a lot of choice in Croatia for EDC items so a lot of planning and research is put in to the things I get for my EDC. Like I said before, a lot of the things are ordered.
I change my EDC every now and then but I like to stay as light as possible.
That’s all! I hope you guys like it. Any suggestions on how to make it more compact and/or light are very much appreciated. 

My Everyday Carry

Nokia Lumia 810
Ka-Bar Besh BOGA

Schrade Tactical Pen
Gerber Multitool
5.11 Tactical Boot Knife (Came free with a pair of boots)
Casio G-Shock GW-2310FB
Gerber Shard and family heirloom “roach clip” key
VW Flip Key
Leatherman Micra (I have this mostly for the scissors)
Fenix E01 Flashlight
BIC mini lighter wrapped with camo duct tape
Maxpedition Micro Wallet
Zero Tolerance 0200ST Knife

This is the stuff that I always carry on me. I work on cars a lot and do general handy man stuff, so some of my EDC items are based on that. Others I carry for defense purposes. I’m pretty ruff on the things I carry, so I select stuff based on if it will last (wallet/knife/watch).
I really like looking through the site at what others carry, and I already found a couple things I might upgrade to. Definitely need to get a paracord bracelet some time.

Great site you have here. I can’t tell you how much interesting kit I have discovered browsing through the photos. Thought I would finally post my own. There are many things a person owns, but the most valuable and useful is what we carry daily. The design of these items is important. They must not only perform, but in my opinion be unified in form and aesthetic.

These are the items I depend on, be them in my pocket or the glove box (other than maybe the German Chocolate.) I don’t go anywhere without it this stuff:
A good watch is critical; especially one I can find joy in winding even in a dull meeting or boring moment. Toothpicks are a vice of mine, and on Ebay there are many compact toothpick containers that were most likely designed for pills or matches. This one was flat bead-blasted titanium and just the right size.
A knife is always useful and the Emerson A100 is a simply designed indestructible piece, but I ended up making my own pry-open tool to save it from the torture I usually attempt to put it through. The wallet is also a design I am working on in response to some of the other plate wallets out there that are either way too expensive or do not have flexibility in terms of the amount one would like to carry, or user serviceable bands- nothing like a black rubber o-ring that you can order for a buck. As an architect, I have to wait a long time to build a building. It is inherently a slow process. Critically considering the problems of design concerning the everyday tools of life fills the time and always gives me an excuse to constantly refine them and experiment with design and fabrication.
Since I do so much designing, the right notebook and pen is imperative. The Leuchiturm’s kill the Moleskines. They are thinner, cheaper and have a subtle grid of dots instead of course lines. For extra ink, sd-cards and other bits live in the Swedish Military Cigarette case: it’s aluminum and incredibly thin. I wish I could find more of these.

Editor’s Note: Hi Matt, thanks for the thorough, detailed explanation of your EDC and what you use it for! The context lets us appreciate your carry that much more. I agree with much of your thoughts on EDC gear and design. I personally try to choose gear with a good balance of design and performance, and form that improves function is often the case. I can see your love of design reflects in your carry — from the notebook and pen to your custom made tools, well done! I like how your carry has some less common gear choices but together, they’re cohesive and make sense for your job (earplugs for construction sites, and so on). I haven’t used one myself but Emerson has a reputation of making some well-built knives, and it’s nice to see that ruggedness translate to a more minimalist design in the A100. Good job on adding that clip to the light and bead/lanyard to your knife for better retrieval and some spare cordage, too. Thanks for sharing!

This is an update of my EDC, keep up the good work.

•  Monologue Notebook
•  Zebra F-701 Pen
•  Vintage Barret Smythe Brass Cobra Zippo Lighter
•  Leather Key Chain with Brass Hook
•  Blackberry Gemini
•  Saddleback Small Wallet,
•  Case Swayback Jack Knife
•  Seiko SNZG15J with Custom Leather Strap
•  Bandana

Editor’s Note: Cool setup, I like the detail in your brass and leather hardware. The strap on your Seiko makes it look like it costs much more than it actually does, looks great… The rest of your gear is a nice mix of fairly unique and tried and true EDC staples. To specify, the simple Case knife, the durable F701 and Saddleback wallet round out your carry, while your 1xAA titanium light stands out. I’m curious as to what you think of it, but from what I can tell it’s impressively thin and sleek for a 1xAA light and I like that it boasts a clicky and deep pocket clip. Overall great carry, thanks for sharing and keep it up~
