Jason is a Sales Rep for an aftermarket automotive accessories company. His interest in knives started from his interest in trout fishing. But he developed his passion for everyday carry gear when he discovered that there was an entire "subculture" of people who also enjoyed EDC gear. Being from Pittsburg, he's a loyal Penguins and Pirates fan!

Favorite EDC Tool:

Jason tells us that his favorite EDC tool is his Burnley Cypop because...well, "it's just so damn cool!", according to Jason. He prefers to carry smaller knives, both folders and fixed blades. He also has a deep appreciation for traditional folders such as Northwoods and Great Eastern Cutlery. For the most part, Jason likes to keep his EDC pretty simple.

So how on Earth did he score that Cypop? His advice is to stay connected to Burnley Knives through their Facebook page and mailing list, have lots of patience, and wish for a bit of good old luck!
