If you thought the ‘Lundquist’ name sounds familiar, you’re right on the money. Today, we talk to knifemaker and professional product photographer, Justin Lundquist (@justinlundquist), the man behind the best-selling Kizer Lundquist Feist. Justin’s designs emphasize functionality and usability, and that is clearly reflected in his personal everyday carry. Read on to find out more!
My name is Justin Lundquist and I’m based just outside of Chicago. I make my living as a professional product photographer.
My hobby has been teaching myself knifemaking. I carried knives off and on when I was younger, either in the woods, hiking, or camping. I would carry an SAK or a Schrade LB7.
As I got older, I started carrying a SOG as an EDC while working as a freelance photo assistant. After losing the SOG, I accidentally stumbled into the world of custom handmade knives. I was instantly hooked.
I wound up ordering my first custom handmade slip joint knife rather than ordering another production knife. It was all downhill after that.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite item in the pic is the two knives. I enjoy the design, aesthetics, and functionality of these tools. It's amazing to think that knives can be traced back millions of years as man’s earliest tool.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
A new belt grinder! I know it’s not EDC but it will help me make EDCs! I buy far fewer knives and EDC gear than I would like.
