As a full-time creative, Anthony's (@anthonyawaken) artistic flair and eye for detail are evident in his minimal yet highly functional and stylish carry. Read on to learn how Anthony combines his hobby with his work and find out what’s next on his gear radar.
Wallet: Recycled Firefighter Sergeant
The Sergeant Wallet is my favorite from the Recycled Firefighter product line. It's so simple and holds everything I need in a compact package. (Fun fact: I actually work with Recycled Firefighter to create a lot of content for them… they're a great company.)
Knife: Spyderco Paramilitary
This has been my favorite EDC Knife for a couple of years now. It’s incredibly smooth, holds a killer edge and has the best tip of any knife I've ever tried (which is fantastic for opening packages & normal EDC tasks).
I do a ton of social media work for myself and clients on any given day. So, my phone gets used a lot. I also transfer a lot of images from my Fujifilm XT20 and edit them on-the-go with my iPhone + Lightroom Mobile.
My name is Anthony Roe (I go by AnthonyAwaken online) and I'm based in South Central Kentucky. I’m a full-time creative specializing in web, design, photography and content creation.
My work is my biggest hobby, lol... I just love creating new things. But I also love anything to do with the outdoors… hiking, camping, bushcraft, etc.
I spend a lot of my personal time studying more about photography, lighting, and things to do with that area of my life. I also spend a ton of time with my wife and 4 kids.
EDC started at a really young age for me. My dad gave me my first Case Knife when I was 4 or 5 and I fell in love with carrying knives from there. But I started taking my Everyday Carry very seriously about 3 to 4 years ago when I began working with Recycled Firefighter and creating content with them.
Favorite EDC Tool:
I would say the Spyderco Paramilitary has been my favorite EDC item for the longest time... But, as you can tell, my EDC is very minimal and I only carry my favorite items. Each item has its own specific purpose in my everyday carry and I couldn't imagine not having any of them.

I'm honestly dying for 2 things right now:
