Judging from his exquisitely assembled carry, Theo is clearly a man of taste and style. What’s most admirable is how he funded his gear purchases by working hard at the Golden Arches while juggling a full school load. Read on for the full story of Theo’s carry, how he first got into EDC, and what’s next on his discerning gear radar.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Out of the items I listed, my favorite is unequivocally the Sebenza 21 Small. There’s just something about titanium that I really like. It has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any metal and its properties are simply amazing. My other grail (not pictured) is a McGizmo Haiku also in titanium.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Please don’t even make me think about what I’m going to buy next. I’m trying to slow down on the purchases! But if there’s one piece of gear I’ve had my eyes on for a while, it would be a Hanko Trident in titanium. I don’t know if it’ll ever happen because of the lotto system and sky-high secondary prices but one can dream.
