What's your story?
I'm Niels from the Netherlands. I'm a project manager in the road design business. I just rolled into the EDC community and it is great fun. I can practice my hobby (photography) at home close to my girl and my 2 little kids! I never really owned knives before but I'm getting hooked and want to buy more ever since I bought the CRKT Squid.
I needed a knife for our family's outdoor activities. Peeling an apple and cutting a branch from the tree for the boys. So I ended up buying de CRKT Squid. I used to shoot landscapes a lot. But since we are basically forced to stay at home I searched for some things to shoot around the house. At the same time, I found the EDC community. That's when I started to shoot pictures of my EDC!
In my free time, I'm into hiking, photography, cycling, oh and.....playing with the kids :)
