Kicking ass and kickflipping in from New York, we chat with Cori (@deathcat_) who’s a skateboarder. As he carves around the city, Cori’s carry has got to be nimble and tough enough to keep up with him. Read on for Cori’s full rig rundown and find out what he uses his pry bar for!
- Wallet: Hibate
First off, a Hibate leather card holder (I’ve since changed to a Hide & Drink leather card holder) - it’s just simple and not bulky.
- Keychain: Brass Fishhook
My keys are carried on a brass fishhook I found on Amazon; it just has my keys, Alox Victorinox SD classic, Nanolight and a titanium glow fob.
- Shades: HappyHourShades
My shades are made by a skate company called HappyHourShades (@happyhourshades). They hook me up with free stuff and they are really awesome guys for sure. I’ve backed them since they started and I LITERALLY never leave my house without a pair. Yes, I wear them in the hospitals as well.
- Pen: Fisher Space Pen
I have the notebook and Fisher Space Pen so I can write down doctor’s appointments, medication changes, grocery lists, and just general stuff so I don’t forget.
- Multi-tool: Leatherman PS4
I carry the blue Leatherman PS4 Squirt for obvious reasons: being a skateboarder and it being small; it was recommended to me by Jeff Smith (CutleryLover on YouTube).
- SAK: Victorinox Alox Cadet
I've got a black Alox Victorinox Cadet for all my cutting needs. It’s very slim so easy to carry.
- Pry Bar: Generic
I have a pry bar that I only started carrying because I locked myself out of my apartment. I had to pry the door open, with a now destroyed Buck knife. I live in New York, and sadly it’s not hard to pry a door open.
- Flashlight: Maratac AAA
I have a Maratac triple-A flashlight from CountyComm. That’s to help see my door if I need to pry it open or if the hallway light blows.
Well, firstly my name is Cori G and I live in New York. I am currently in and out of the hospital due to liver failure so my EDC is quite minimal. Also, I’m a skateboarder so my pockets can’t be crammed with too much stuff.
Favorite EDC Tool:
I literally use all of my stuff daily. The only things that aren’t shown are my CRKT Spew neck knife and my iPhone 7 Plus, with some interchangeable lenses to take photos and film while skating.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
The only next piece of gear I really want to get is a Leatherman Juice, which I’ll probably have by the time this is posted.
