An everyday carry kit is a constantly evolving, ever-changing set of gear that should be customized for the person’s preferences and situational needs.-John Cain
Golden Garden Hank
This is no run-of-the-mill handkerchief where you buy a multi-pack like some socks, these are handmade in America by Pocket Candy to Prada’s Italianesque level of craftsmanship using some beautiful and fine 100 percent premium cotton.
I’ll be saving this one for special occasions but will be EDC’ing their custom “greyman” version (not shown) from now on for permanent carry.
-Available for about $19
Stealth Carbon Fiber Knife
A variably imperceptible defense tool for special circumstance and last / only resort tactics. Sculpted from a solid block of carbon fiber with a modified drop point blade profile and 3 finger ergonomics.
Using an experimental non-sheath sheathing method, this tool can be “clipped” for unconventional concealment to almost any part of the body.
-Available for about $N/A
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but with Svorn’s carabiner, you can have a thing of beauty that beholds other things, beautifully and efficiently. Now available in arctic gold.
I’ve had the original chrome version as part of my EDC since late 2015 and will continue to do so and save this one for special occasions.
-Available for about $39
This is just an overt 14k gold necklace I would never wear except for this one time as part of a cover for an OP, acquired along with the ridiculously expensive crocodile wallet (below) and tailored suit, paid for by my former employer.
This merely sits in my safe at all times but took it out for this everyday carry kit post, now back it goes.
-Available for about $3,000
This is a 100 of a kind genuine crocodile leather bi-fold wallet. I needed it in part with that beautiful but gaudy gold chain for an OP to dress a certain part. However, unlike the necklace, I have used this wallet often for many years and it’s still looking good.
As a vagabond I tend to use just a hair elastic as my “wallet” for day-to-day use.
-Available for about $1,000
Micro Gold Bars
I’ve been carrying PAMP minted bullion bars of pure gold and platinum on my person and as part of my varying packing lists for the last few years for last resort backup currency or better yet, bartering power. Also in most of my worldwide go-bags.
Under the right circumstances and for specific individuals, a few small bars of 1 and 5 gram pieces could one day be a life saver.
-Available for about $50+
This is just a patent pending piece of hard and grippy plastic. Its simplicity is why it’s brilliant. It securely goes over any Kwikset (you most likely carry these) key for increased usability when locking and unlocking doors – like a handle.
-Available for about $9+
