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.

* Black Tie Event Luxury EDC :

This is a partial gear list for on-my-person carry. The remaining and bulk of my equipment is mostly in my FAST Pack EDC Backpack.


Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Rolex Submariner Date /// Vinjabond


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.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Stealth Response Knife /// Vinjabond


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.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Svorn Arcus Carabiner /// Vinjabond


Arcus Carabiner

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.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Platinum SERE Bracelet /// Vinjabond


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.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: White Gold Space Pen /// Vinjabond


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.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Raidops Angry Ceasar Knucks /// Vinjabond


Angry Caesar Knucks

This singularly solid titanium knuck made by Raidops, is thin and low profile by design. I’ve modified it to act as a type of money clip for concealment and ease of carry purposes.

I rarely equip this on my person.

Black Tie Event EDC Kit: Stealth EDC Necklace /// Vinjabond


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.

    Yo, everytime you come out with a new EDC i try to duplicate it but now you’ve gone too far, can’t keep up man!

    Rolex Submariner was always design and intended to be a tool watch. Rolex make reliable and sturdy mechanism and case that can take abuses. Thanks to Rolex marketing, the mass do not know story of Submariner as tool watch and see it as overt sign of some that you are rich.

    For those who are looking for alternative to submariner that just reliable and study, Tudor Pelagos is the ideal candidate.
