Hailing from northern Germany, Maik (@mpdwaberlin) is an engineer, craftsman and multi-talented man of the world. Achieving both form and function in his EDC, Maik believes that a "knife-less man is a lifeless man". Read on to learn all about this ultra sleek and stylish carry that's fit for a secret agent.
I hail from northern Germany, and I'm an engineer and a craftsman. I admire useful and beautiful gear.
I got into everyday carry due to my grandfather. He was an engineer, hunter and craftsman. He gave me my first proper folding knife and the rest came with my time in the Army.
In what free time I have I like to hike and camp.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favourite piece of gear is that Lessard TiSAK. Because a knife-less man is a lifeless man.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
Right now I am not looking for anything particular when it comes to EDC gear. I tend to buy torches or knives on a whim but nothing really stays but those things in the photo. I thought about a James Brand Stilwell pen in titanium but didn’t take the leap yet.
