As a veteran product designer, Vincent (@vincent_van_gear) gravitates naturally towards good design. His eye for beauty and attention to detail are evident by his choice of carry, which features gear that combines function with form in unique ways. Read on for the full story on Vincent’s gear, and find out why he has a little spoon as part of his EDC.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite is maybe the Lucas Burnley Small Kwaiken Flipper Knife, which is the original version, not the one made by Boker. It is made of titanium (the material I really like), and its shape has some unique aesthetics. These two assets make it especially elegant... so I love it, and use it often! :D
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I would like to try the Ansø Monte Carlo by Jens Ansø, for example the upgraded version with forced patina or some special piece. It has a really beautiful minimal design, and it seems the archetype of the classic folder. Modern materials and appearance with traditional nail nick opening and slip joint design. I still have to make friends with its price, as it is a bit higher than what I'm used to. So if somebody has a used one which would like to sell, just let me know ... :)
