A social worker by trade, Yannic's (@sparrow_edc) favorite EDC tool is his watch because it's important to track time if one of his clients has an epileptic seizure. Read on for the full rig rundown of his exquisite carry, and find out all about that huge GEC blade that you're definitely wondering about.
My name is Yannic, I am 26 and live in southwest Germany. I work as a social worker so in my work, I have a lot to do with people, especially people with benefits.
I don't need many tools, but I do need a knife to rely on. Combined with the strict knife laws here in Germany, that's why I chose a GEC.
I first got into EDC by the YouTuber, Excessorize Me. I was (and actually still am) into mobile stuff and he covered a bunch of interesting stuff on his channel. From there, I discovered Best Damn EDC and since then, I can't stop.
In my free time, I recently got a camera and I want to learn how to take pictures. I also play video games with my wife. One other hobby is the chase of the next knife, since GEC's are hard to get and even more difficult here in Germany.
Favorite EDC Tool:
Out of the listed items, picking one is hard. But I will choose my watch.
My father always has a watch on his wrist and he gave his love of watches to me and my brother. Not only my watch remind me of him, but it is important to track time if one of my clients has an epileptic seizure.
It fits my wrist perfectly and is just the perfect watch for me.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I would like to get more GEC made knives, maybe a new wallet from Wolfwood Supply and second lens for my camera.

From Richmond, Virginia, we talk to Taylor (@rvagearguy) who's a Senior Systems Engineer. Inspired by his dad, grandfather, and uncles who all carried knives – Taylor always had a knife in his pocket. Over time, his hobby evolved and expanded to include military knives or historically significant models. Read on for the full story and to learn all about Taylor's carefully curated and considered carry.
