Cyril is a French Army veteran, which is how he originally got into EDC gear in the first place. He now works in the Netherlands as a General Manager for a security company specialized in securing events and offices. His gear reflects his army background with an emphasis on functionality, and a touch of class. During his free time, aside from spending time with his family, he enjoys mixed martial arts and powerlifting!

Favorite EDC Tool:

For Cyril, this was a no-brainer. He immediately chose his Manu Laplace 1515 Custom Ivory knife. He tells us that the knife maker, Manu, put a lot of details into the knife resulting in a razor sharp knife with beautiful, high end details.
