Coming to us from France, we shoot the breeze with Jean-Marc (@edc_fr68) who's forever 50 years young. Jean-Marc's first introduction to EDC was through his father, who always had a knife and a tool on him. Following in his father's footsteps, Jean-Marc has now collected over 50 folder, 40 fixed blades and more. Read on for the full story, and find out all about this simple and stylish carry.
What's your story:
I was in air industry for about 25 years for the biggest companies. Now, I'm my boss, and work as a trainer for logistics schools, English lessons for various levels, IT for beginners, and multiple other subjects.
My father was an EDC guy many years ago. I'm 50 and as far I can remember, he had always some stuff with him. It was knife, flashlights, pens, some gears, etc. I walked in his steps and now with internet and all the companies selling online, I can buy the gear I like but also discover new products.
In my free time I like to hike and use my equipments (fixed blades, hiking stuff etc).
Favorite EDC Tool:
That's a difficult question, I have around 50 folders, 40 fixed, multiple pens, pry bars, 40 flashlights, I like them all ;)
I buy mainly for the look, but also for the material they are made off, the location they are made...
What's On Your Gear Radar:
I give more focus on fixed blade and recently bought a TRC and Tops after bought Cold Steel and Fox, pics would come soon. I also bought a Medford but was not really impressed as there's some scratches on it and I didn't wanted to get it and returned to the dealer.
