Background:

Zak is a student at the University of Kansas studying Business Management with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship. He loves fly-fishing, hiking, backpacking, bush-crafting, photography, leatherwork, lacrosse, and of course, EDC gear!

Favorite EDC Tool:

Zak's favorite EDC tool is his Grimsmo Norseman, which he received from a friend almost a year ago.

He tells us that he's very fortunate to have found such a great community.
