EDC of a Process Operator from Baton Rouge, Louisiana

This week, we sit down with Stefan (@225knives) from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He works for a water management company as a Process Operator. His gear is highlighted by a knife designed by Matt Cucchiara in collaboration with Kizer, which reflects his deep passion for using, collecting, and tinkering with knives. Get the full run down on his gear and find out how he got into EDC gear!

Featured Tools:

Knife: Matt Cucchiara / Kizer
Pocket Protector: Scout Leather Co.
Small Knife: Queen Cutlery
Chapstick Sleeve: Cu Creations
Beard Comb: Lock Jaw Essentials
Multi-Tool: 3rd Eye Tactical
Watch: Burberry


Stefan is a man of many hobbies including cigars, shooting guns, working out, and of course, knives. He tells us that although he bounces from one hobby to another rather frequently, he has really gotten into collecting various EDC gear over the past several months. Discovering the strong EDC community on Instagram has open him up to new makers and gear, which has fueled his EDC hobby into a passion. 

Favorite EDC Tool:

Stefan's favorite item is his Matt Cucchiara / Kizer knife. He tells us that it embodies most of what he looks for in a knife including the opportunity for him to customize it himself. Being a passionate user, collector, and tinkerer of knives, Stefan loves personalizing his knives, making them a custom one-of-a-kind item. With a great flipping action, heat anodization, and acid washed blade with hand rubbed satin flats, he has really put his own custom mark on his Matt Cucchiara / Kizer knife.
