Hey there, 

Welcome to Friday my Urban EDC compadres. This week, I took the opportunity to put some designs from my two favorite Danes to the test. Check it out below! 

MKM Vox Timavo in Green Micarta - Jesper is a very prolific designer, and there is a reason why. His utilitarian designs matched with his unique aesthetic makes for an incredibly useful everyday carry knife. Paired with an M390 blade, and machined by the masters over at MKM, the fit and finish on this production is top notch. I have enjoyed carrying it and it is getting a ton of use because we got a lot of packages in this week. The OD version that I have has a wire clip and it is well-tensioned but giving enough that it is easy to re-pocket with one hand. This is a must for me! The action is snappy, and I don't have to worry about cleaning it right away because M390 is pretty resistant. Overall, I would recommend this to someone who is going to use their gear!

Anso Carabiner V4 in Titanium – On the other end of the Dane-namic duo (see what I did there?) I am carrying Anso's 4th version of the Carabiner. The v4 stood out to me because of the unique shape. I carry a few keys and they aren't too bulky. Plus, if you know me, you know I could lose just about anything, so I like being able to clip them to my belt. The titanium construction keeps things light, and the clasp is sturdy! Not to mention, when I lose my bottle opener, I have a backup. As of writing this there is only 1 V4 left, so be sure to check out the equally amazing V3 if you are in the market for a new clasp. 

Mikto Humbolt Pipe in Black Aluminum - I had to have one of these the second I saw them. I dig the bolt action mechanism to control the airflow. Also, it is super easy to take apart and clean so that is an added bonus. I haven't seen anything like this before, and I love the idea of using the bolt action for something other than pens. Be sure to try it out! 

Greg Stevens Design Carry Strong Money Clip in Black Leather - We have been signing our emails "Carry Strong" for some time now. It is a short phrase, but I think it speaks volumes to the steadfastness that a well put together kit should provide. So, when Greg showed me his new money clip design, I knew we had to do a collaboration piece. I am in love with the result! He even put a leather piece on the back of the clip with his logo and it keeps it from scratching surfaces. Holds a bunch of cards and cash. Really like this one - it will definitely be a permanent piece for me.  

Carry strong, 

Shawne
