Everyday Carry of a Technician from Montreal

In this week's Showcase, we feature Damien (@themadheretic) from Montreal. He's an NSF Accredited Field Certifier and a Refrigeration Technician. His gear is an eclectic mix of utilitarian tools and other elusive EDC items from small makers within the EDC community. Read more about Damien and his gear!

Featured Tools:

Bracelet Bead: Big Boy Bead by @ocu_lar
Carabiner: Ti2 Whar-Biner
Bottle Opener: Rat Bastard MT
Bead: Combat Bead by @keith_79
Flashlight: Prometheus Lights Beta-QR (Copper)
Multi-Tool: Leatherman Wave
Knife: Custom Knife Factory Morff


Damien only recently got into the EDC and knife community on Instagram. However, he tells us that he's been lurking around the forums for at least 10 years.

Damien tells us that he's been labeled a workaholic so his free time is rather limited. However, when he is not working, he enjoys wood working, backyard bush crafting, day hiking, and meditating.

Favorite EDC Tool:

Damien did not hesitate with this one. He went with his Leatherman Wave. He tells us that if he could bring two tools into the apocalypse it would be his ESEE-6 fixed blade and his Wave. The Leatherman Wave also has a sentimental value to Damien since it was his first serious piece of EDC gear that he's ever purchased. He claims that he's owned his Wave for at least 10 years and has never disappointed him.
