Based in China and working for an archery and outdoor sports equipment company, Bill's (@edc_urban_china) day-to-day requires a good amount of tools usage and elbow grease. And as a frequent traveler, his EDC has also evolved accordingly to breeze through security. Read on for the full rig rundown and find out why Bill carries a Minion hank.
I’m based in China. I work for Khampa Sports, an archery and outdoor sports equipment company. I love exploring abandoned buildings and the outdoors. Along with hunting, hiking, fishing, baseball, and archery.
I first got into EDC as a boy. I loved carrying my first SAK around with me. As I grew older I continued the habit. I thoroughly enjoy speaking to others in the EDC community. My IG has been a great way to expand my EDC experience.
Favorite EDC Tool:
The SAK Camo is my favorite. I've always loved SAK and their products. I also love my Tactikey because I can take it anywhere in the world without a problem. It is always in my pocket and never gets questioned.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I really want a brass/hardwood knuckle. I'm not sure if I should buy one or make one myself.

When Nick (@scv_edc) was first introduced to the world of EDC by his best friend, he made fun of him for paying for knives and beads. That was until he joined USN – and as they say, the rest is history. Read on for the story of Nick’s EDC journey and find out all about his spectacular knife rotation.
