From Malaysia, Daniel (@time_tyro) works as a Senior Brand Manager for a telecommunications company. Working in an office environment, he opts for classy gentleman knives that are more discreet to blend in better. Read on to learn about Daniel's four different blades and how he chooses the right tools for the right job. 

Featured Tools:

  • Knife 01: Great Eastern Cutlery #15 
    Love this slip joint as it's very discreet and very suitable for the office environment. It features beautiful American Elk scales that always get compliments from my mates. A classy knife for everyday carry.

  • Knife 02: Koding Borneo Tanto Cleaver with Copper Skull Buddy Beads
    Both items were custom made by my mate Niklos Koding (@bapaks). The knife features a beautiful Rengas Wood handle and 5160 steel. Carry it every day in my EDC bag. It's especially useful when I need to do some heavy duty cutting.

  • Knife 03: Kizer Aileon with Combat Beads MOAB Ti
    I won the knife and beads from Combat Beads GAW, and I must say, I love the shape of this folder. It's lightweight, classy, and features an S35VN steel and titanium frame lock. The beautiful Combat Bead is a perfect match.

  • Pen: Fisher Bullet Space Pen
    The Fisher Bullet is my favorite pen out of a bunch that I own. It's small and easy to carry in my EDC wallet. This pen is my most used item. Love the beautiful raw brass finishing.

  • SAK: Alox Classic 2018 Limited Edition
    A must-have item for me. The little scissors are just so useful.

  • Wallet: Keras Tangan EDC Wallet
    Had this made by my mate Roslan Hussein. A perfect wallet for my Fisher Space Pen and my SAK Classic Alox. It carries all my ID and credit cards as well.

  • Flashlight: Olight I3T CU
    I love the copper finish on this flashlight. It's a must-have item for me as I always had to walk up the stairways to my apartment in the early morning or late at night.

  • Hank: EDC Cooperative Hank
    A limited run Hank from EDC Cooperative. Top quality materials that are soft and fluffy.

      Background:

      My name is Daniel Law, and I'm from Malaysia. I'm a Senior Brand Manager for a telecommunications company.

      I first got into EDC some 20 years ago when my friend gave me a Swiss Army Knife. Since then, I have been carrying it with me whenever I go just because it's so useful.


      In my free time, I enjoy cycling, running, and staying active.

      Favorite EDC Tool:

      My favorite item has to be the Great Eastern Cutlery #15. I love it because of the beautiful scales. It's also quite discreet, and I can use it anywhere without getting too much attention.

      What's On Your Gear Radar:

      I'm eyeing the Chris Reeve Sebenza 21 with Box Elder Burl scales. It's a very beautiful knife.
