A law enforcement officer from the Pacific Northwest, Justin (@sheepdog_7) would be the first to tell you about the importance of high-quality gear that you can rely upon through hell or high water. Read on for Justin’s full rig rundown and learn all about his obsession with good ol' titanium.
My carry is all about the titanium.
What's your story:
My name is Justin. I am a law enforcement officer, currently posted in the Pacific Northwest. My daily duties include everything from responding to 911 calls, conducting investigations, as well as performing patrols in urban and rural areas.
I became interested in EDC, after purchasing my first folding pocket knife - a Kershaw Blur. I began to learn via social media, that a good way to consider your EDC, is to consider what minimal gear would aid you in surviving an emergent emergency situation.
The more I consider different situations and environments, the more I see the opportunity to add additional gear or tailor the carry to meet anticipated requirements.
In my free time, I enjoy going to movies and outdoor activities, including hiking and fishing.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite is the Brasswerx Pioneer X. I love the toolset that its constructed with, which includes a main blade, a bottle opener, can opener, awl, screwdriver, wire stripper, and scissors. The titanium scales add strength and style.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I've really been considering a Chris Reeves Knife (CRK). I'm thinking of an Umnumzaan for my first one. The fit and finish of CRKs seem to be the benchmark that other EDC knives are measured against.
