Read on to find out all about Vojislav’s ultra-sleek carry and find out what he’s eyeing next.
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...
