In this week's community feature, we speak to Felix (@felixtheelix) from Bavaria, Germany. After studying Education in university, he's now working for an organization that helps refugees. When asked about his favorite tool, he had a tough time deciding. Find out which EDC gear he chose and why!

Featured Tools:

Wallet: Recycled Firefighter
Watch: Orient Ray Raven
Lighter: Zippo High Polish Brass
Multi-Tool: Gerber Shard
Multi-Tool Knife: Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
Pen: Kaweco Al Sport
Flashlight: Thrunite Ti5

Background:

Felix's interest in EDC gear first began when his father gifted him a small Victorinox Swiss Army Knife many years ago. Since then, he's enjoyed carrying small gadgets and being prepared for any situation living the city lifestyle. Over the past year, he tells us that the EDC community on Instagram really turned his EDC hobby into a true passion. Although the EDC community in Germany is small, Felix enjoys sharing his EDC findings with the community on Instagram.

Felix also loves the outdoors. He tells us that his perfect summer day would be biking with his EDC gear and his camera, relaxing in the park with his friends, then coming home and cooking up a delicious meal for dinner.

Favorite EDC Tool:

When asked this question, Felix had a tough time choosing his favorite tool. Finally, he told us that he's really torn between his Kaweco Al Sport and the Gerber Shard. He says that the Kaweco pen is an awesome EDC pen since it's so light and enjoyable to use. But, at the end of the day, he would choose his Gerber Shard for its functionality. Aside from its original functionality, he's finding even more uses for it than he originally imagined. With its small size, he loves how versatile it is!
