Hailing from Minneapolis, Micah’s (@knivesandtoolsmn) EDC journey started with his knife, which has always been his most important tool. From there, he branched out to flashlights and other gear. Read on (link in bio) for the full rig rundown of Micah’s carry that combines everyday functionality with style and simplicity.
My name is Micah and I work as an Applications Specialist for a packaging equipment manufacturer. In my free time, I go hiking or biking whenever I can. If I'm not on the trails, you'll most likely find me on the couch with my wife binge watching The Office or Law and Order SVU.
A pocket knife is where EDC started for me. It's always been the most important and useful tool I carry, and I've been carrying one for so long I can't really remember when I started. In my quest for building and improving my knife collection, I've been exposed to more and more awesome non-knife EDC gear.
Relatively recently I've become interested in flashlights and different types of pry tools or multitools. It wasn't uncommon for me to carry a small flashlight or SAK in the past, but now I've got a variety of gear in my collection, all with its own strength, or for a specific setting.
Favorite EDC Tool:
I would say my favorite item in the photo is my Fremont Jack. It's a truly one of a kind piece. Knives with mammoth covers have their own unique character due to the diversity in coloration and texture present in mammoth ivory. I got lucky, this knife is a beautiful example.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I have really been wanting a Koenig Mini Goblin with red carbon fiber scales. I'm a huge fan of Bill Koenig's work, and the Mini Goblin checks a lot of boxes for me as an EDC locking folder. Hopefully, I get a chance to buy one at some point.
