Cards: Custom KINGS deck
I’m also a magician, and these are my own custom KINGS branded playing cards with Ellusionist.
Pen: Schon DSGN Brass
Hank: Huckleberry Woodchuck
I've always been obsessed with the ‘things I carry in my pockets’. I was so pleased to learn it was a global phenomenon. I fit right in!
I am a professional photographer & cinematographer. I also run production for the world's largest online magic retailer, Ellusionist. We sell custom decks of cards, props, tricks, and training for magicians. Lastly, I run Montgomery Leather Works, a small boutique leather shop making heritage handmade goods.
My hobbies happen to be what I do for a living - so I am super blessed to be able to do what I love. I love to shoot leisurely, and work in my shop! Being a magician has its perks too, hanging out with buddies, blowing minds for free drinks and ripping around on my electric longboard!
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite is definitely the Burnley Kihon. It’s the most beautiful piece of kit I have ever owned. Lucas Burnley is a master at what he does and to own a piece straight out of his shop is incredible. You can feel the difference in every aspect of holding a custom.

When Nick (@scv_edc) was first introduced to the world of EDC by his best friend, he made fun of him for paying for knives and beads. That was until he joined USN – and as they say, the rest is history. Read on for the story of Nick’s EDC journey and find out all about his spectacular knife rotation.
