Everyday Carry of a Writer from Singapore

In this week's community feature, we speak to Phil (@thehollowhands), a Writer from Singapore. His clean EDC reflects his preference for a minimal, refined, gentleman style carry. What is his favorite EDC gear? Read on to find out!

Featured Tools:

Bracelet: Hand-Hammered Woodgrain 925 Silver Cuff
Multi-Tool: Gerber Shard
Keychain: Japanese Solid Brass Hook
Flashlight: Peak Eiger Oveready Edition
Knife: Great Eastern Cutlery #83 Little Lockback with Sambar Stag Handle
Pen: Sailor 1911


Aside from writing, Phil loves to read, takes photos, and go on casual bike rides. He is also a self-proclaimed gear geek, being obsessed with knives, flashlights, and all things mechanical. When asked how he became a gear geek, he says that he likes to be prepared, carrying essential items that are functional. He believes in minimalism - carrying as little as he can, and maximizing the utility of each item he carries.

Favorite EDC Tool:

Phil's favorite EDC gear is his Great Eastern Cutlery knife. He says that it's simply a gorgeous piece that has a thousand uses. He also uses it as a worry-stone. Phil ended the interview with a reminder that a good knife is worth its weight in gold. We couldn't agree with you more, Phil!
