From across the pond, we chat with Matt (@mattd_edc) who only got into EDC recently by way of boredom and the lockdown. As an engineer at a power station, Matt's able to use his gear on daily basis, which helps him fine-tune his carry based on real-world functionality. Read on for the full rundown and find out who in the EDC community Matt really wants to buy a beer for!
What's in your carry?
What's your story?
Hi! I'm Matt from the UK and I'm a maintenance engineer at a power station. It's a really interesting job that I can use a lot of my EDC gear every day. In my free time, I'm a huge gaming nerd and I also love going out and shooting city and street photography.
I first got into EDC during lockdown this year. I found myself really bored at home trying to find something to photograph and I remembered I had an old
SAK in my drawer.
So, I started with that and then I got bit by the bug and started acquiring various gear and as they say the rest is history. I owe a lot of my early enthusiasm to @owen_edc.
He reached out the day I started my IG account and has been a great friend ever since, always offering advice and support. One day, I hope to finally meet him and buy him a beer to say thanks.
Favorite EDC Tool?
Definitely the custom Beaver Bladeworks Climber because it's the perfect SAK.
What's On Your Gear Radar?
Next on my gear radar will be another custom SAK for sure.
