Everyday Carry of a Marketing Consultant from Aurora, Illinois

This week, we sit down with Indy (@ivzqz5000) from Aurora, Illinois. He works in Operations for a Marketing Consulting firm. His gear reflects his favorite colors gray and orange, and his passion for multi-tools. Find out how he got into EDC and what his favorite tool is!

Featured Tools:

Carabiner: Ti2 Design Whar-Biner
Carabiner Bead: Prodigy3D P3D75
Utility Knife: Rexford R.U.T.
Utility Knife Bead: Ti2 Design / MMGear HiTex
Bottle Opener: Axyl Design Piranha

Multi-Tool (left): Koch Tools Solo Titan
Multi-Tool Bead: WonderBeads Beerbelly
Multi-Tool (middle): Koch Tools Duo Deuce
Multi-Tool Bead: WonderBeads XL Beer Keg
Multi-Tool (right): Scuba Steve
Multi-Tool Bead: Maverick Workshop Titanium Etched Candy

Background:

Indy tells us that although he has a wide range of hobbies including shooting photos, attending rock concerts, watching sports, and playing the guitar & bass from time to time, they all come second to raising his daughter.

Indy first got pulled into EDC gear through his tattoo artist who introduced him to the world of custom knives through Instagram. As Indy began to explore, he found other makers and gear that he enjoyed. Since then, he's been an EDC gear fanatic.

Favorite EDC Tool:

Indy's favorite tool is Scuba Steve, since it's his own multi-tool design. Aside from his own tool, he tells us that the Rexford RUT is his next favorite, since it's small but packs so many different tools in one. He says that it's the perfect size for EDC that covers his basic needs.

Was looking for the scuba steve, but not even listed. Is that a special order? If so, what do you charge?
Thanks!
