Hi, my name is Josh, I’m 41, a dad, and a grad student in History from Fresno, CA. I’ve loved knives for as long as I can remember and I’ve been an EDC enthusiast for a good ten years at least.
I tend to change up some of the things I carry, especially pocket knives. However, the setup in this photo has been a fairly consistent carry as of late.
I really love not only the gear and the innovation in the EDC community, but the people as well. It’s a truly amazing and diverse group of people who share a love for knives, gear, and knolling.
Favorite EDC tool:
My favorite EDC tool is probably the Leatherman Juice S2, which is my consistent piece of gear. It has everything I need – scissors, blade, bottle opener, pliers, drivers – and I love it!
What's on my gear radar:
There's nothing I particularly need, but I'm always on the lookout for better.

Read on for the full rig rundown, and find out more about Uwe's EDC philosophy.
From the "City Beautiful" that is Orlando, Florida, we talk to Rikki (@capt.rikki) who's a full-time videographer and content creator.
