Read on for the full rig rundown of Tobias impressively sleek EDC, and find out what are his two favorite pieces of gear!
I work in the construction of one of the largest forklift manufacturers. I live in Germany near Hamburg and I am the proud father of a daughter and a son.
I spend most of my free time with my family. I came into EDC by looking for a Swiss Army Knife. That's what got me on Instagram. After seeing a lot of great photos, I started to take pictures of my gear. EDC was like quicksand to me.
The more I resisted, the deeper I sunk in. As a result, I also met a lot of great people who have supported me many times. And now it's one of my greatest passions, with which I spend the rest of my personal time.
Favorite EDC tool:
I got two favorite items. First one is the Victorinox Spartan PS Fluted Copper. The SAK was a personal gift and I love the custom scales.
The second one is the Big Idea Design TPT Slide. For me the TPT Slide is kind of a fidget toy. It is just useful, small, light and fits in every pocket. Also my first choice as a bottle opener and in my pocket almost every day.
What's on my gear radar:
The list includes a flippertap knife and an EDC knuck.
