From the land of design, vikings and Ansø, we chat with the inimitable Charlie (@canallezedc) about his sleek and stylish carry. A lifelong fan of EDC, it was only in recent years that Charlie started geeking out about EDC (we know the feeling). In his own words, "Old news became news" and the rest is history. Read on for the full rig rundown and find out which is Charlie's favorite knife of all time!
My name is Charlie I’m from the small country of Denmark. I’m 40 years old and live in Copenhagen with my girlfriend and daughter.
I work as a child care specialist. I play guitar and sing, and together with some friends, we entertain with live music, covering CCR (Have you ever seen the rain?), Beatles and a whole bunch more. I also enjoy heading into the woods alone and spending time with the family.
I’ve always been into knives. Ever since I was a young boy, knives was my favorite toy and tool. I’ve been in to the EDC way of thinking for years and years. But it’s only within the last 4-5 years I’ve learned about stuff like micarta, frame locks, pry bars, blade steels and the every day carry concept. Old news became news to me.
Favorite EDC tool:
Definitely the Spyderco Swayback. As I mentioned, it is just the perfect imperfect knife. It has personality and and edge that not many knives have in my opinion.
If they make a Lil’ version I’ll get one. If they make a Magnum version I’ll get one.
What's on my gear radar:
Most likely - a WE knives Mote.
Less likely - a Zach Woods pry bar.

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.
