Mason’s (@daddyo_edc) path to EDC is slightly unconventional and all the more meaningful. As a father, he quickly found himself needing more tools as he enjoys taking his kids on new adventures, and he felt the need to be more prepared for his kids’ sake. Read on for Mason’s story to his current carry and full rig rundown.
My name is Mason. I am based in Las Vegas, NV and I am a Respiratory Care Practitioner. My main hobby is, well, knives of course. I really enjoy learning about knives, taking them apart, sharpening them, buying/selling/trading - you name it. However, I also enjoy photography, woodworking, and sports.
I spend almost all my free time with my wife and kids. Taking my kids on new adventures is what brings me joy in life. We like going to the park, hiking, the beach, Disneyland, the movies, or whatever else we decide to do!
I first got into EDC a couple years ago. I started carrying a knife and a Leatherman because I just wanted to be more prepared. Once I had kids I found myself needing more stuff, more often. Having kids made me want to be prepared for whatever they needed. Then I came across this whole community of knife/gear nuts taking cool pics of their gear and posting it on Instagram and I HAD join in!
Favorite EDC Tool:
Choosing a favorite piece of gear is hard but if it came down to it, I would have to go with the Spyderco Slysz Bowie with the Lynch All Access Pass as a close second.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
Next on my gear list is a Damasteel Millit Torrent (if I can ever get one). It's just so pretty.
