From the rugged mountains of Blue Ridge Mountains, we talk to the rugged Trey (@edc_dump_365). Plying his trade as a masonry worker and construction, Trey first got into EDC by way of the gram (where else?) and immediately found his people. Fun fact – Trey is about to get married and might already be married when you read this. So, read on for the full story and send some good vibes his way!

What's your story?
My name's Trey Lloyd and I'm based out of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. I’m a masonry work/general construction contractor. I’m 19 and I'm about to be or will be married whenever this goes up!
I first got into EDC when I got my first knife and found the EDC community on the gram. I saw all these big pages and all these fancy knives and gear and it just kicked off from there. I started buying gear and talking to different people and learning what I could whenever I could. I’ve made dozens of friends along the way and am happy where I am.
As you can probably guess, my passions and hobbies revolve around carpentry, leatherwork, photography, gear photography, hiking, and camping.
Favorite EDC Tool?
My favorite piece of gear has to be my Brasswerx pry bar.
I had previously won a pry bar in a GAW from John, and when it got to me there were significant rolls on the edge. I shot a message to him and he kindly sent me the one I currently have. Which was the first production pry bar that had a shell casing on it, which blew me away that he’d go above and beyond like this.
What's On Your Gear Radar?
The next piece of gear I want is a Benchmade Freek 560-1. I just love the looks of it and the red liners on the back just hit home.
