For this week’s community feature, we have Micah (@micahtbyrd) from Ohio in the house. Micah is a third generation precast concrete producer and enjoys home renovation, DIY projects and adventuring in the great outdoors. Read on for Micah’s comprehensive and well-used everyday carry!
Knife 02: JRS Neckr
This simple 1095 blade is very handy for daily work, and is really easy to keep razor sharp. Its size and weight make it easy to carry all day in the back pocket. I really like a small fixed blade as a companion to a folder. In my dirty daily work environment it's nice to have a dedicated hard use blade.
My name is Micah Byrd. I'm a husband and father of 3 (soon to be 4). By day I'm a third generation precast concrete producer in Ohio. I spend my free time on home renovation and DIY projects with my wife. I love spending time outdoors adventuring with the kids and exploring in my jeep.
I've been interested in personal preparedness and gear since I was young. Growing up, I was very active in Boy Scouts, and always loved preparing for adventures. In late 2011, I stumbled upon edcforums in my search for a new pocket knife. I was hooked instantly.
I had no idea there was a complete subculture of folks interested in everyday gear. From then on I've been on a never-ending quest for the perfect everyday gear. Along with discovering like-minded folks interested in everyday gear, I was quickly drawn to photographing EDC related gear.
My wife, who is professional portrait photographer, encouraged me to start an Instagram account and turned me loose with a smartphone camera. Things have evolved since, from a smartphone to learning to shoot with a DSLR. The whole creative process is so addictive and rewarding!
Favorite EDC Tool:
Of all my EDC items I enjoy my knives the best. They are the essential everyday tools. Hinderer, and Emerson are two of my favorite brands. As a whole, the thing I love most about everyday carry, is the people. I've met so many great folks, and I'm forever thankful for their friendship.
