Hailing from Pennsylvania, John (@adventures.of.a.sak) first got into EDC through the Swiss Army Knife Collectors group on Facebook. His all-time favorite SAK is the Victorinox Pioneer X, so much so that he bought one each for all of his seven uncles. Read on for the full story of John’s admiration for SAKs and what’s next on his gear radar (no, it’s not another SAK).
Favorite EDC Tool:
The Victorinox Pioneer X is my favorite EDC item because it is a tough and utilitarian multitool. I like it so much that I bought one for each one of my seven uncles!
What's On Your Gear Radar:
My next gear purchase will likely be a leather wallet that is custom built to hold my SAK, flashlight, and pen. It might just be from Hitch & Timber because I can't go more than a few days without browsing their site.

From the rugged land down under, we chat with Chris (@cray_edc) who’s been working as a Water and Wastewater Operator for the last 20 years.

Read on for Chris’ full rig rundown and learn how he puts his gear to the best use – day in and day out.
The epitome of a man who works with his hands, brain, and heart – to paraphrase Louis Nizer – Andrew (@0.8200.20) is an artist, craftsman, collector, photographer and leatherworker all rolled into one. A self-professed “patina-fiend”, he seeks out vintage Leatherman tools and Old Cross Alox SAKs. Read on to learn about Andrew's love affair with all things old and how he strives to live a simple, honest life.
From the land of Victorinox knives, Stephan (@spezialiced) has a thing for Old Cross Aloxs and carries 2 custom SAKs on a daily basis. In his free time, he stares down his opponents in poker and traipses through the beautiful Swiss mountains. Read on to learn all about Stephan’s tightly curated carry and find out what he’s hunting down next.
