If you think looking after a single kid is tough, try raising 4 of them. From Barwick, Georgia, we talk to Jeremy (@jpoppell85) who’s a proud stay-at-home dad of 4 young kids. Jeremy has always carried a knife but only started getting into other aspects of it after interacting with the EDC community on Facebook. Read on for Jeremy’s full rig rundown, and find out what’s next on his gear radar!
I live in a tiny town called Barwick, Georgia in the southwest part of the state. Currently, I’m a stay-at-home dad of 4 small children.
I’ve carried a knife since childhood but started getting into the other aspects of it after joining a few Facebook groups.
During my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and reading. I’ve been reading more than the others lately. Of all my interests, I think I enjoy reading the most, but it could be because it’s easier to make time for.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Of the pictured items the Lanny’s clip is my favorite carry item. It turned out exactly the way I had pictured it in my head and has some amazing stag. If you’re speaking of favorite tool, in general, I’m very happy with my most recent Atwood. Peter reintroduced his E115 design a few weeks ago and it is everything I’d want in a pocket tool.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Next, I would like to get one of Robert Lessard’s custom SAK mods.

With a name like Dean Burns (@dean_edc), you already know you’re talking to somebody lit. A schoolteacher by day and SAK-modder/leatherworker by night, Dean’s aesthetic of choice for his EDC is anything post-apocalyptic or battle-worn. Read on for Dean’s full rig rundown and find out how he configures and deploys his different custom SAKs.
The head honcho behind GiantMouse Knives and Carpe Diem EDC, Jim (@jwirth66) began with the simple goal of finding the best custom knives and most unique EDC gear. In his free time, Jim enjoys metal detecting and finds a dozen or so gold rings every summer, returning rings whenever possible (including one that was lost for 55 years). Read on for the full story of one of the most interesting members of our EDC community.
