your personal expression

While EDC is a definitive acronym for “everyday carry,” EDC itself is very personal and different for everyone. If you were to go onto Instagram and search the hashtag #EDC, invariably you would get photo after photo of “pocket dumps” containing the items people like to have on them regularly. Typically, you have the regular fare: watch, wallet and knife. But then each person adds their own flare and you will see variations to the mix, with additions like a firearm, pen, handkerchief, flashlight, knuckle duster, custom bottle opener, multi-tool, mini keychain multi-tool, etc. The possibilities are endless when it comes to EDC. EDC is a personal expression, and everybody has their own idea of what is worthy of carry. Some people like an elaborate collection and some are minimalistic. I am…

your daily carry

01 The Activity Group Pocket Emergency Wallet Bleeding Control Kit Let’s face it, we’re knife people and one thing we all have in common is that we’ve cut ourselves at least once in our lives. The severity of the cut may vary, but you can’t handle knives with as much regularity as we do without cutting yourself at some point. That’s where the Pocket Emergency Wallet Bleeding Control Kit comes into play.

big victories

Knife Rights continues to unwind what its members believe are bad knife laws, this time in Montana, Texas, and New York. Board member Ethan Becker represented the grassroots lobbying organization at a signing ceremony for Knife Rights’ Montana Switchblade Ban Repeal and Knife Law Preemption bill. Becker presented Governor Steve Bullock his first ever automatic knife, a specially inscribed Protech SBR, to recognize him signing the bill. Montana is the 16th state to repeal its ban on switchblade (automatic) knives and the 11th state to enact Knife Rights’ signature Knife Law Preemption since since the organization began its state legislative efforts in 2010. This effort follows up on Montana’s 2017 repeal of the prohibition against concealed carry without a concealed weapons permit for a “knife with blade 4 or more inches in…

than more a maker

Recently my cohort, Amber Hargrove, and I had the opportunity to visit with Peter Kohler of Dark Timber Custom Knives in his shop, overlooking an incredible Rocky Mountain landscape. Having the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Peter gave Amber and I the opportunity to learn more about the man behind the knives that have an entire industry taking notice. If you have not had the chance to watch the live Facebook interview we did with him, I highly recommend it. You can find it in the Knives Illustrated Facebook videos (@KnivesIllustrated). It was interesting to note that Peter’s character matches the quality of his knives, making my and Amber’s time with him very much worth the trip. “IT WAS INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT PETER’S CHARACTER MATCHES THE QUALITY OF…

the magic

When we first arrived at Peter’s shop, Amber and I were given a tour around his operation. It is not a big shop, but the tour consisted of what Peter refers to as “the magic” of his shop, explaining that all shops have magic. It was clear that his shop had a flow to it, allowing him to move quickly throughout his stations and tools, which he demonstrated to us effortlessly. Watching Peter work, it was evident that he is someone who has a mastery over his craft and his tools, but getting the opportunity to have Peter walk me through the beginning stages of shaping steel into a blade gave me a real feel for the magic he spoke about.…
