For this week's community feature, we sit down with Frank (@instafr4nk) who is a biomedical research scientist from Toronto, Canada. Frank is a family man who enjoys the outdoors as much as working in a lab. Read on for the full rig rundown of Frank's beautifully assembled everyday carry!
Pen: Maxmadco Bolt Action
The Maxmadco pen is slim and perfectly balanced (at least for my hand). I find it very comfortable to write with and the bolt action mechanism is smooth and addictive. Over the years the bronze has taken a very nice patina.
My name is Frank and I've been living in Toronto, Ontario for the past four years. I'm a scientist working in biomedical research.
I got my first Swiss Army knife when I was eight or nine. I have always been attracted to cool EDC gadgets but I only discovered the "EDC world" a few years ago when I came across the EDC forums.
Shortly after, I joined EDC groups on Facebook and later Instagram, and the rest is history. Over the past two years, I've gotten more and more into collecting traditional and non-traditional slip joint knives.
I have two small kids and spend most of my free time with the family. I love the outdoors, traveling, craft beer and good food.
Favorite EDC Tool:
While I really enjoy collecting and carrying knives, for me the pen has always been mightier than the sword.
Even in the digital age, I take a lot of notes with pen and paper every day. And I like having a pen that feels comfortable and looks good. So the Maxmadco Bolt Action pen is definitely my favorite tool.
