Jaime tells us that he discovered the EDC world by chance. As an Emergency Medical Technician, he uses a knife at work daily. About a year ago, he misplaced his EDC knife at work. This began a rigorous search process. He was looking for a multi-functional knife that would help him with work tasks such as cutting seat belts; he wanted a durable knife that wouldn't require frequent sharpening. His search found him on the pages of various custom knife and tool makers. Then, he quickly learned that there was a large community of EDC and knife enthusiasts. After that, he was hooked! He tells us that the community has been very helpful finding the gear that he was interested in.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Jaime's current favorite EDC tools are his wallet and his light. He tell us that his wallet is extremely functional and it's always with him. It allows him to carry his Rexford R.U.T. and his EDC fork tool; being an EMT, Jaime is always on the go and having his go-to tools with him is important to him. He also carries and uses his light often. He says that it runs on a single AA battery which is important due to convenience and availability on-the-go.
