From Düsseldorf, we chat with Felix (@new.knife.order) who works as a freelance photographer. His love for knives waned as he was growing up and was recently reignited when he stepped into a Victorinox Flagship Store. Read on to learn all about Felix’s EDC journey and what’s his favorite piece of gear in his carry.
My name is Felix and I’m a freelance photographer based with my family in West Germany, Düsseldorf. I primarily photograph people and industry events for work.
As far as I can remember, I've always had some sort of knife in my pocket when I was young. As a kid, I had everything from SAKs, a big survival Rambo style knife, throwing knives, and even balisongs. Nowadays it’s illegal to own a balisong or an OTF in Germany.
I lost my interest in knives at the age of 12 or so. Recently, I got back into knives when I was looking for a present for a colleague. I went into a Victorinox store and immediately fell in love again! I bought an Alox for my colleague and myself. A few weeks later I bought a Small Sebenza, and as they say, the rest is history.
Most of my free time is spent with my family, riding a bike, hiking, or exploring the city.
Favorite EDC Tool:
That’s easy, it’s the Sebenza for sure. My EDC journey started with the Sebenza and I love it. Just simple and perfect.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Hard to say, maybe a custom 93mm SAK with titanium scales.
