Pen: Fellhoelter Monkey Edge Frag Pattern Pen (Stonewashed Titanium)
This was another grail for me that I’ve been searching for, for a long time! I’m old school, so I love writing things down! That includes journaling, writing lists, reminders, you name it!
As soon as I heard about the Fellhoelter pens a few months ago, I was hooked and really wanted to get my hands on one. They are very hard to come by and very expensive. A friend on Instagram recently did a raffle and I was able to score this awesome Brian Fellhoelter pen! It writes really smooth and I love the fidget factor as well.
I grew up in Barrie Ontario Canada, but I’ve moved around a bit over the years! Went to College in Saskatchewan and studied music there for 4 years and then moved to Windsor Ontario for work!
Windsor has now become “home” for me and I work as an automotive assembly line worker at our giant Chrysler Assembly Plant. We assemble the Chrysler and Dodge Mini Vans! It’s a factory of about 5,000 workers and can be challenging for a variety of reasons but for the most part, I enjoy what I do.
I first got into EDC by watching Taylor Martin's videos on YouTube! His older channel MOD showcased various peoples EDC’s and DIY kits, and then eventually his channel grew to be Best Damn EDC, where he still showcases a variety of people’s EDC’s but also features the latest gear that companies have to offer!
Slowly over time, I’ve accumulated a small collection of gear and recently last October, created my page and dove into the EDC community on Instagram. It’s been really fun ever since, interacting with people from all different backgrounds and sharing common Interests and talking gear!
I have a few hobbies outside of the realm of EDC! I’ve always enjoyed music including singing, playing guitar and piano, and writing my own music as well. I also enjoy cardistry which is the art of using decks of cards in motion that is really pleasing to the eye. I also love spending time with my dog Jax and taking him for walks in the trails, when I’m not at work :)
Favorite EDC Tool:
Out of all the gear I mentioned, probably my favorite would be the knife! I’ve had it the longest and it’s been super useful to me. They are so rare to come by now and it matches pretty much everything because I have a lot of green stuff haha.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Next on my gear radar would probably be a Serge Knife! I’ve been eyeing the Bean for a little while now and it would be great to get the copper version. They are small knives but pack a punch, and are great for fidgeting, which sounds perfect for me! Just gotta keep my eye out for one :)
