This week, we are back with another community feature with Michael (@alexandersupertramp_3) from Canada, who works as a mechanical engineer. Michael first got into EDC through his friend (who gifted him with a knife he won) and the rest, as they say, is history. Read on for the full rig rundown and to find out how Michael incorporates his carry into his everyday.
My name is Michael and I'm a mechanical engineer from Canada. I've been carrying pocket knives or multitools with me since can remember. My dad always carried a pocket knife with him and he gave me my first one when I was around 10 years old.
I like to spend a lot of time outdoors so always having the right tool with you, whether that be a knife, screwdriver or flashlight always comes in handy. I also like to play sports, both soccer and of course hockey, or mainly spending time with my kids before they grow up and don't want me around.
I first got into the EDC community when a friend of mine gave me a knife that he had won in a contest. I ended up losing that one but when I went to replace it I found the variety of pocket knives that I never knew existed. I started collecting knives and that spilled into flashlights which led to pens and so on.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite item would probably be the ZT 0450 because I love the materials and construction and it's also fun to fidget with. But if I could only choose one item to have it would have to be the Victorinox Cadet because of its versatility.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
I'm always upgrading my gear and my next items would probably be a high-quality knife like a Chris Reeve Sebenza or a high-end custom flashlight light like the new Muyshondt Beagle Mk. I in the Relic Copper finish.
