From Milford, Connecticut, Tom (@the_casual_cutter) focuses on minimalism above all. After getting his first SAK at the age of 8, Tom has since graduated to the big leagues with a penchant for larger custom blades that push the boundaries. Read on to find out all about Tom’s unique carry and how he deploys them in his daily life.
What's your story:
These days I’m all about minimalism, and the items in my carry reflect that philosophy. For my day job, I’m a marketer and liaison based out of Milford, Connecticut.
I first got into EDC after receiving a Swiss Army Knife at the age of 8. In my free time, my hobbies include knife collecting and modding, as well as motorcycles and spending time with my wife, four dogs, and our new-born son Jack.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Favorite piece of gear is always the pocket knife - in this case, the Grimsmo Norseman; due to its particular size, ergonomics, and usability, that make it one of the more perfect knives for my particular EDC tasks.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Next up on my shortlist is a Grimsmo Rask and GiantMouse GM6.
