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 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.

Featured Tools:

  • Bottle Opener: VoxDesigns
    I use this Custom Sulky Seahorse for cracking open the occasional brew (or other things in a pinch).

  • Flashlight: Olight 3EEOS
    The little 3EEOS provides sufficient light output in the smallest package possible.

  • Knife: Grimsmo Norseman
    As simple as it gets. I use this to cut stuff.

  • Tag: Grimsmo
    This was custom, made by me, copper Grimsmo support tag – for personal use only, of course, to show my love for the brand.

  • Coin: Carpe Diem EDC
    This is the Tempus Fugit reminder coin – to never forget that time is short, and to make the most of each day we have. 

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.
