As an Executive Chef in New York City, Nick (@charliechingon) knows a thing or two about knives and tools and it shows with his gorgeous gear selection. Striving for a clean, classy, and competent carry, he places emphasis on keeping things minimal and purposeful. Read on to find out all about Nick’s effortlessly stylish carry and what’s next on his gear radar.
I'm based in New York City and I’m the Executive Chef of a popular restaurant in Midtown Manhattan.
The start of my EDC journey can be traced back to when I was a little kid in the Boy Scouts. That's when I got my first knife and learned how to appreciate pocket tools. Ever since then I’ve always carried a knife.
My hobbies include looking for the next best EDC tool, hanging out with my dog, family, cooking, photography, and woodworking.
Favorite EDC Tool:
I love my Sebenza. It's not my first and it probably won't be my last. In my opinion, it is the epitome of a perfect EDC knife. It's a knife that I know can abuse and clean up like new.
The blade is such a classic shape and the S35VN steel is easy to sharpen back to a razors edge. The carbon fiber and Adam Purvis clip make it special and set it apart.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I have been wanting a Gareth Bull Shamwari for a while now. I haven't been quick enough to get one just yet.
