All the way from Ingolstadt in Bavaria Germany, we chat with Patrick (@padraig785) who works as an electrical engineer in the automotive industry. Due to his occupation, it's no surprise that Patrick knows his way around tools and that his pen is his most used item in his rotation. Read on to find out all about Patrick's carry and how he puts them to work!
My name is Patrick, I’m 35-years-old, a dad, and I live in Ingolstadt in Bavaria Germany. I work as an electrical engineer in the automotive industry.
I first got into EDC because my mom gave me my first pocket knife when I was 10-years-old. It was a white Victorinox Mini with a red cross. Since then, I was hooked with knives. After I graduated, I got more into EDC. I started to refine my carry by trying out different wallets, watches and key organizers.
I'm mostly a family guy. I do a lot of water sports and I'm a big Martial Arts enthusiast (Judo). I love to scuba dive and I volunteer as a swift water rescue technician for the red cross. But mostly I try to spend quality time with my family.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite Item is my Prometheus Writes Alpha Pen, because I have to write a lot on a daily basis and it is so much fun to use. My pen is by far my most used Item in my carry.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Next on my list would be handmade Barlow slipjoint with a clip point blade.
