What's in your carry?
What's your story?
I am based out of Knoxville, TN, and just recently separated from the military and I’m in the process of working HVAC and going to HVAC school.
I first got into EDC as a kid when my dad gave me my first knife but when I joined the army my appreciation grew tremendously! My hobbies include hiking, drinking beer, EDC (obviously), photography, and anything with my beautiful wife and newborn son.
