Shane started collecting knives at a very young age, having received a Rambo knife when he was just 11 years old. He interest in knives and general EDC gear phased out a bit until he started working in the industrial field at the age of 18. Then, he really got into multi-tools such as Leatherman and Swiss Army Knife. About 5 years ago, he started collecting knives again and his passion for all types of EDC gear only grew from there.
Favorite EDC Tool:
When asked this question, Shane had to think long and hard about it. Finally, he told us that his Swiss Army Knife was his favorite because it is so versatile: a knife, bottle opener, flathead screwdriver, file, and general multi-purpose tool. He tell us that everyone should at least own or carry one!
