Even with a cursory glance, it’s immediately evident that this carry belongs to someone with a keen eye for detail. So it’s no surprise when Ge (@samxuge) shares that he’s currently pursuing his PhD in Macroeconomics and tutors Master students in mathematics in his spare time. Read on for the full rig rundown of Ge’s exquisite and carefully assembled daily carry.
My name is Ge, from China, currently living in Sydney. I am a PhD. candidate from Macquarie University and my major is Macroeconomics. I spend most of my days doing research studies, aside from my own work, I also tutor for Master students.
Whenever I have some spare time, I would devote myself to watching sports news/games (I am following Seattle Seahawks in NFL, LA Lakers in NBA and Arsenal in EPL), and of course, spending time in the EDC community.
I am still sort of fresh in the EDC community. I was first attracted by some pictures of EDC gear on Instagram, I started to explore works from talent makers then I got seriously collecting some of the fantastic gears in late 2015.
I still remember the first three gears I purchased were the R.U.T from Rexford, KeyBar and TUKK. I love beautiful things, especially nice micro items, so I decided to expand my collection in three main categories - tritium lanterns (I want to get everything from Bullaculla), bottle openers (Jasper’s Voxsnails, Voxpings are my favorite designs) and flashlights.
I really enjoy sharing my gear with my friends, online or offline. It feels so good when I hear ‘Wow, such a beautiful piece of work’ from others. More importantly, these gear are my reliable friends and I always feel ease when carrying them along the way.
Favorite EDC Tool:
The Tudor Black Bay is always on my wrist. I am the guy who cannot go without my watch. When I raise my wrist, it is not only to check the time, but also to enjoy a piece of art in design. I am also a big fan of Casio G-Shock, especially the GW-5000 line.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
I’ve got several targets on my list. I will get the Muyshondt Aeon MK. III Titanium if possible, I just hope they do not let it become discontinued. The one from Barrel Flashlight CO. is also gorgeous (it seems like I am flashlight addict!).
