For this week’s community feature, we have Peter (@petermckinnon) from Toronto, Canada and he is a man of many talents. Peter is a professional photographer, cinematographer, magician and he also runs Montgomery Leather Works. Read on for the full rundown of Peter’s diverse passions and daily carry!

Featured Tools:

  • Knife 01: Custom Burnly Kihon
    This is a custom made titanium flipper with a cool 90’s fade anodization. It uses CPM154 blade steel, and is made by the man himself with a beautiful rose pattern inlayed onto the scales.

  • Knife 02: Custom Burnley Peregrine
    This fixed blade has a skeletonized body, and it’s acid washed with polished edges. It also uses the amazing CPM154 blade steel.
  • Light: Muyshondt Aeon MK III
    This is bead-blasted titanium Aeon MK III is an Urban EDC Supply exclusive, and it’s one of the finest flashlights I’ve ever owned. It gets the job done.

  • Watch: Nixon Ceramic Player
    This is an automatic watch that is Swiss Made, and it even has a beautiful inset ruby.
  • Cards: Custom KINGS deck
    I’m also a magician, and these are my own custom KINGS branded playing cards with Ellusionist.

  • Keychain: Brass Scout Hook
    The Scout Hook is perfect for opening bottles and it stays secure on your belt with no worries of it ever coming off. I also have an emergency stash cash with a cool $100 bill rolled up inside for those ‘just in case’ moments. The Prometheus EKO is there when I don’t want to get my blades dirty on gross packing tape. Titanium Screwdriver attachment for those times when you need to get things fixed! And the Burnley Knives Copper Rose Stamped tag rounds the keychain carry off.
  • Pen: Schon DSGN Brass 

  • Hank: Huckleberry Woodchuck

Background:

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.
