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.
