From Scandinavia, Mark (@patinaedc) is a self-professed addict when it comes to leather and brass (and it shows). A firm proponent of patina, Mark takes it to the next level with his thoughtfully assembled everyday carry that is both highly practical and fantastically stylish. Read on to learn all about Mark’s lovingly patinated carry, and find out what’s next on his gear radar (it’s neither brass nor leather).
This is my carry for today. Each and every one of these items continuously finds itself back in my rotation. I always carry a main blade, some sort of multitool, a light, and a pen.
Hank: Mighty Hanks
Finally, my trusted hank. My Mighty Hanks Brown Suit is always in my pocket, and it is fantastic for wiping phone screens, sunglasses, and take care of the occasional spill from my daughter.
What's your story:
My name is Mark and I am based in Scandinavia. Some of you might know about some of our crazy knife laws, but let me assure you that I carry legally.
You can carry knives/tools for work if you need them, and I do. I work as a backline technician for a company leasing musical gear for concerts etc. I got into EDC very young, and I’ll be honest - MacGyver had a lot to do with it!
Also, multitools are very handy to keep when your hobby is music. For me, as a guitarist, the need for pliers are somewhat frequent.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My Bugout is currently my favorite item.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I need to get my hands on a LynchNW Pry bar! So hard though...

“Hello, my name is Corban (@hideandgrit) and I love multi-tools.” With that out of the way, we can delve into Corban’s impressive collection of Leatherman tools, ranging from the compact Micra to the innovative Free P4. When he’s not working on his collection, Corban also works with leather (Horween leather in particular). Read on for the full story and find out how he deploys his different tools in his day-to-day.
