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's edition features Zak (@zj_hawk) from Fort Collins, Colorado. Fun fact about this shot...it was taken after Zak donated his blood at a local blood drive. Way to go Zak!
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. It's his favorite because this knife opened him up to the passionate knife community, where he has met countless folks who share the same passion in knives and general everyday carry gear! He tells us that he's very fortunate to have found such a great community.
