Welcome to the Urban EDC Showcase! Each week, we feature one member from our community and the gear they rely on everyday. Want to be featured? Submit your gear photo.
This week in our community feature, we have Matt (@mattb618) from Virginia, USA. Matt works as a SharePoint administrator and he has a discerning eye and taste for gear. Read on for the full details of his clean and classy carry!
Knife: Ray Laconic Baby Bear with CTS-XHP blade
Light: Muyshondt Bead Blast Ti Aeon Mk. III
SAK: Custom Ti SAK from Robert Lessard
Watch: Stowa Flieger Klassik with SW215 hand winding movement
Wallet: Ashland Leather Fat Herbie in Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Pill Container: Cogent Industries Titanium Pill Pot
Matt shares that he has always had a knife in his pocket ever since his father gave him his first Swiss Army knife as a young boy. However, he didn't get into EDC gear seriously until 2005 when he stumbled across BladeForums, and later USN when he was researching the Chris Reeve Sebenza. It was these two forums that opened up a new world of custom knives and high-quality EDC gear for Matt.
In his free time, Matt enjoys photography, collecting knives, and firearms. While he's a dutiful family man and tries to spend as much time with wife (and two cats), Matt also loves going the range and indulging in a nice single malt scotch.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Matt tells us that his favorite everyday carry item is his Laconico Baby Bear. He further clarifies that the Baby Bear is his favorite because it's the tool that gets the most use, and not because it's his favorite knife (although he adores it).
Matt firmly believes that a knife is an absolute essential and he lives by the old Nordic proverb that states that “a knifeless man is a lifeless man.”
Jamie, yes we are working with Magnus directly to bring some of his products to our shop :)
That “pillpot,” is awesome! I wish he was stateside or we could purchase his whole line on UrbanEDCsupply.com
Why are these showcases written in a weird third-person perspective? I’d prefer these in an interview/transcript style of questions and answers. Feels like you’re telling me about a celebrity.

Daniel, thanks for the feedback! We’re going to try first-person narrative going forward. I agree, it is a little awkward in third-person. Thanks for sharing! :)
