For this week's community feature, we're heading all the way to Sweden to talk to Tobbe Anderson (@unkindness_of_ravens).

    My name is Tobbe and I live in Sweden. I've been a knife addict all my life. Being a fan of knives naturally led me to other equally interesting and fascinating everyday carry tools. I really appreciate the utility, functionality and craftsmanship that goes into each of these designs.

    As we speak, I'm on holiday and that's why I'm carrying two knives - a large and small folder. Usually when I'm home, I prefer to only have a single blade on me. I like my everyday carry setup to be as pocket friendly as possible. That's why I'm carrying the Koch Tools Copper Solo because it's the smallest knuck that I own. It helps with traveling light.

    The Investigator pen and Atwood Tools are with me everyday. They're very useful despite their small size and can easily be carried daily in any pocket. The Saddleback wallet is built for heavy duty and it'll probably last me a lifetime. The bifold design is just big enough to carry all I need, including the Investigator pen. It makes for a perfect jeans back pocket carry.

    When I'm not working, I spent my time playing guitars, riding my bike and shooting with my bow.

    Favorite EDC Tool:

    Of all the stuff that I carry today I'd say that the Steve Karroll CAMS folder is my favorite. I'm a huge fan of Karroll knives. I love these small folders with a 3" blade because they are very useful and rides easily in a pocket. Also, Steve Karroll is a seriously underrated knife maker who does fantastic and unbelievable work.
