Today we talk to Ron (@ronkwok) who does it all as a EDC Content Creator and Photographer/Videographer. Taking his passion to the next level, Ron has dedicated himself to the art and craft of capturing unique visuals on YouTube, and spreading the gospel of good gear. Read on for Ron's story and his full rig rundown.

Featured Tools:

  • Knife: Urban EDC F5.5 Titanium M390
    This is my go-to knife for opening packages and other cutting uses. Great action, solid weight with the Wharncliffe M390 blade and titanium scales. Paired with Gray 550 and the Combat Beads Civilian bead in Ultem.

  • Wallet: Ekster Carbon Forged Cardholder
    I love this as it's a slim minimal carbon fiber cardholder with a quick-release trigger to cascade my cards for easy access.

  • Watch: Casio AE1200 Worldtime
    Budget beater daily timepiece with an interesting face and a solid feature set.

  • Keys: Orbitkey Key Organizer in Black Saffiano Leather
    Takes the jingle outta my keys and adds organization to my key stack. Finished with fine textured leather and black DLC steel hardware.

  • Pen: Studio Neat Mark Two
    My pocket pen for signing checks and autographs. Shifts to full-size when in use, finished with black cerakote and polished stainless steel, Schmidt mini P8126 refill.

  • Pocket Art: Various
    Here are various rare pieces to round out the EDC kit with personal meaning and for fidgeting. Such as the Urban EDC Seigaiha Wave Challenge Coin, Custom Blade Brigade EDC Shattered Carbon Fiber and Copper SFK Live With Purpose V1 Exclusive RE Patch. 

      Background

      Ron Kwok here, I'm an EDC content creator and photographer/videographer on YouTube. I was your average daily tech commuter until I chose to pursue my passion in daily carry and capturing unique visuals on YouTube for the greater EDC community. Now I create content in everyday carry, useful and practical tech gear with a focus on productivity and living with purpose.

      Favorite EDC Tool:

      Diving deep into knives and learning about the steels, materials, and construction, my favorite EDC tool right now has got to be the Urban EDC F5.5 Ti M390. Love the action and weight of it, and catch myself sometimes just flipping it in and out at my desk.

      What's On Your Gear Radar:

      I've yet to own a Benchmade knife so the Bugout and Mini Bugout are on my radar as daily carry candidates.
