For this week’s community showcase, we talk to Madison (@ntrovrt_) from Charlotte, North Carolina. She is currently a full-time student specializing in mechanical engineering. Read on to find out how her background influences her choice of daily carry!
Light: Muyshondt Maus Mk. I Titanium
The Muyshondt Maus Mk. I Titanium was a gift given to me by my dad (a fellow “EDCer”) for my 19th Birthday. I had my eye on it for awhile. It’s small, perfect for my keychain, and packs one hell of a punch for its size. The style, quality and manufacturing are second to none. I never realize how much I use it until the rare occasion I forget and leave it at home.
My name is Madison, and I’m currently a full-time student studying mechanical engineering. I would say I’ve unknowingly been an EDC enthusiast for most of my life, but only recently became familiar with the term and community.
Having grown up in a family of racers and motorsports professionals, my appreciation and love for high-tech gadgetry and exotic materials was instilled in me at an early age. I would collect pens, watches, knives, rocks - anything, you name it!
As for hobbies go, I’ve always been quite hands on and drawn to computer aided design (CAD) and manufacturing. I love bringing my ideas and designs to life. There’s nothing more rewarding than going from a sketch on a piece of paper to a tangible part in your hand. On the flip side, I also enjoy gardening, outdoor activities, coffee, and video games in my free time.
Favorite EDC Tool:
This is such a hard question. I can say over the past couple years, I have discovered many amazing makers and EDC gear; choosing one is very difficult. Don’t even get me started on hanks!
My carry varies depending on my mood, but no matter what I always have my Happy/Sad coin in my pocket. The little guy has helped me through some stressful moments (public speaking class, school presentations, etc.) and always puts a smile on my face. For that reason, I would have to pick the “home team”, our (Dad and I’s) little creation, the Ntrovrt Happy/Sad Worry Coin.

“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.
