Welcome to the Urban EDC Showcase! Each week, we feature a member of the EDC community and the gear they rely on every day. Want to be featured? Submit your gear photo.

From Serbia, Vojislav (@edc_gear.ig) works in Tech Support while honing his craft and skill in tattooing. Having first discovered the world of EDC a year back, Vojislav enjoys engaging with the community while shedding light on smaller and independent makers. Read on to find out all about Vojislav’s ultra-sleek carry and find out what he’s eyeing next.

Featured Tools:

  • Key Organizer: KeySmart Rugged (Titanium)
    This key organizer is the best thing ever. My keys used destroyed many of my pants pockets and this thing changed my life.

  • Watch: Spinnaker Wreck 2.0
    I have a few watches from Spinnaker and they are all awesome. I like divers because of the time bezel - very useful for timing the 15 minutes the local restaurant needs to prepare lunch, among other things. I wear this with a gray nato strap.

  • Knife: Ruike P801
    I am not too picky when it comes to knives. I work a desk job and don’t need anything special – as long as it cuts I am fine with it. That said, I enjoy using this Ruike very much and the best thing about it is the lock bar - it has a little jimping and is contoured so it doesn't stab my thumb as I go to close it.

  • Pry Bar: Picaroon Tools Plank
    I got this Plank pry bar from @picaroontools with a skull bead attached on a paracord lanyard. I use it for opening a bottle of beer most of the time and I used the screwdriver once but hey, it looks cool.

  • Pen: Honey Badger Arsenal Bolt Action Pen
    By far the best bolt action pen for the price. This one is aluminum but since John recently added a titanium one, I am getting that one soon and I already have a copper one as well.

    What can I say? The pen – a primitive instrument for writing or drawing with ink. Not as efficient and precise as more advanced digital writing and drawing tools but you should try it, it’s a good skill to have. :D

  • Tweezers: Aliexpress Titanium Tweezers
    I bought these on Aliexpress, they are pretty cool and very useful due to their size (not small like the ones on SAKs).

  • Lighter: Zippo
    This Zippo lighter was a birthday gift from my girlfriend. It has sentimental value and has been serving me reliably since 2016.

What's your story:

My name is Vojislav and I am 25 years old. I live in Serbia and work in Tech Support.

My interest in knives was sparked when I was maybe 7 years old and saw a Swiss Army Knife for the first time. I bought a knockoff SAK when I was 12 (and didn't know better). I wasn't aware that EDC was a thing until last year when I heard the term in some knife review video. Once I looked it up, I was hooked and now we're here.

Sharing photos and interacting with the community on Instagram is my favorite hobby at the moment, I learned a thing or two about photography because of it and thanks to the awesome people of the EDC community. I hope to bring some exposure to small manufacturers and independent makers, the EDC community needs to see that it's not all about Spyderco and Benchmade.

I also tattoo from time to time, it is my passion but I don't seem to find enough time for it, or I'm just too lazy. Tattooing is a craft that takes years to master so hopefully, I'll get there someday.

Favorite EDC Tool:

I can't tell you which of these items is my favorite, they are all useful in their own way but if I have to choose one I'll say the Zippo since it is the only one with sentimental value – others are just tools and instruments.

What's On Your Gear Radar:

I am looking to get a traditional slip joint possibly with modern materials but I haven't found anything yet – those things can be expensive...
