This was my everyday carry kit for a “black tie” event in Hong Kong. Including both personally owned and partially loaned items.
Submariner Date Watch
This Rolex is a retirement gift from my former employer of which I only recently reacquired after 4 years, as collateral for a favor. They say the Submariner is the most iconic of wristwatches and while the Rolex brand may be ostentatious, this piece is a tool watch, meant to be ruggedly worn everyday for any activity and environment – including 1000 feet deep in the ocean.
Whatever the case, it tells time and it’s a symbol of my achievement and the flashiest thing I never bought.
Stealth Response Knife
I modified this from a Karambite to serve a very specific purpose, to be used as a hair pin once mine grew long enough. Hidden in plain sight and in a strange yet exceedingly deployable “sheathed” area.
The blade has been dulled and the point blunted to be a jabbing and hooking device instead of a cutting one.
This is the world’s most beautiful carabiner, by Svorn. But more than that, it’s as perfect for stylish and functional everyday carry needs. Made uniquely of zinc alloy into an elegant artistic piece at just the right size, unlike other non-climbing carabiners that are as large as the climbing versions.
I now have 4 of these used for various purposes including 1 on my person at all times.
Platinum SERE Bracelet
I designed this for an associate originally planned for full titanium parts. But he had it made from platinum with the hardware and “keys” from titanium. The trick clasp which can only be opened by a secret motion, reveals a set of tethered restraint escape keys.
This was loaned to me for this black tie event.
Au Gold Space Pen
Also on loan from the same associate is this custom 18k white gold from Fisher. This bullet pen’s mechanism is unmodified unlike the body and casing as it doesn’t need to. These write without fault in space (hence the name), underwater and upside down.
This however is just a fancy pen, no hidden feature, sorry folks.
Angry Caesar Knucks
I rarely equip this on my person.
Stealth EDC Necklace
All parts and hardware is entirely made up of titanium to keep the weight down, enhanced strength and to be nonmagnetic. The medallion opens up for stashing very small but very specific items.
This has been temporarily converted from my modular Stealth Combat Necklace.
