Born and raised in Ogden, Utah, Landon (@rockymountaincarry) used to be a competitive bodybuilder and powerlifter. Nowadays, he works in marketing and business relations and spends his time with his family. Read on to find out how Landon first got into EDC and learn about his fascination with Victorinox Alox models.
Knife 02: Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
This is a customized compact model with a screwdriver, stone/acid washed tools and titanium Swiss Bianco Scales done by Ricardo Garcia. I dress every SAK I own with an Ammo lanyard from my friend Bart Smith @bugoutbart. They can usually be seen hanging out of my pocket as a pull tab.
Flashlight: Klarus Mi7
I love the blasted titanium finish on this thing. I strongly urge those who do not EDC a light to give it a try going into these darker months and see just how often it gets used. I think most people will be surprised.
My name is Landon Waters and I currently live in Ogden, Utah where I was born and raised. I work in marketing and business relations for a very large retailer. I used to compete in bodybuilding and powerlifting but now I just exercise enough to stay in decent shape and spend most of my free time doing activities with my family and reading.
I got into EDC in college when my friends and I went on a camping trip. I ended up using my pocket knife so much that I decided to start taking it with me whenever I left the house for school and work.
That was my only EDC item for while. A few years later my best friend passed away and his brothers and I took turns picking from his knife collection. I went straight for a shiny one with his name engraved on it. That knife ended up being my favorite style and the first in a perpetually growing collection of Victorinox Swiss Army Knives, more specifically Alox Cadets.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite item in this lineup would have to be the Victorinox SAK. Just so many useful tools in one.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I have near identical setups in aluminum, brass, and copper. There is just something attractive about different metals and finishes as a way to add variety to mundane daily activities. I would really love to add a pen from SCHONDSGN to the collection and a custom #bwsak from BRASSWERX.
