It’s always interesting to see what someone’s EDC set up contains. One item that may be crucial to one person can be completely neglected by another. Of course, this variation in what gear one carries is a part of what makes EDC’s so interesting to look at.
Some like to have the right tool for the right job and insist on carrying enough to tackle anything that come in their way, while others keep it simple and pair down their needs to as simple a set up as possible. Which items are most important to you? The every day carry ensembles that are featured in this department contain a wide variety of pieces that appeal to people of differing requirements and tastes.

Half Face Blades EDC Tonto – Griffon Industries
MSRP: out of production
Our 2¢: Half Face Blades are handmade in small numbers for consumers who demand only the finest products. The Griffon Industries edition EDC Tonto featured here is no longer made, but other limited edition blades are available directly from HFB. Founder Andrew Arrabito, Navy SEAL (ret.), prides himself on making high-quality, “go to” knives and axes that are usable, personalized, functional, versatile tools that work for every person in every walk of life.
Vintage Diabolo Platinum Plated Pinstripe Ballpoint
Folwer Industries G19 Frame Work
Our 2¢: If you love your Glock but wished it had all the bells and whistles such as professionally stippled 360-degree texture, a rounded double undercut and finger groove re-contouring, Fowler is your man. Fowler Industries can handle not only custom frame work or your Glock, but slide work and complete custom pistol builds as well.
SOG Baton Q3 – Black & Grey Anodized
Our 2¢: SOG’s Baton Q3 is one of, if not the most, elegant multi-tool designs that we’ve encountered so far. Measuring 5.8-inch in length when closed and weighing a scant 6 ounces, it features all the essential tools that classic multi-tools possess minus the bulk. When open, it feels solid in the hand and provides plenty of confidence that it will handle business with ease.
SureFire GX2 LE
Our 2¢: The polymer bodied GX2 series of SureFire flashlights have been a part of many EDC set ups over the years. The GX2 LE model in particular was designed with law enforcement users in mind. The first click of its tail cap immediately activates a maximum 600 lumen output mode for quick access to perp-blinding light. Another quick click on the tail cap changes the output to a long lasting and night sight friendly 15 lumens for extended work.
