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.
