Vagabonding is not only my lifestyle but my profession. As a professional I require specific and specialized equipment.
A personalized kit of tools, accessories and necessities I always equip as part of my EDC kit.

My Everyday Carry Items :
URBAN SURVIVAL KNIFE
A rugged scalpel bladed locking #knife made by Boker. Made to resemble a pen for #covert purposes with dual purpose as a glass breaker. I use this tool primarily as a utility knife. The short blade and size makes it ideal for legal concerns while traveling.
A flat and thin #titanium “toothpick” that serves as an ultra #minimal multi-tool; food picking, needle for sewing, last ditch knife, self defense spike etc. I carry this inside my #wallet (see below) or secured inside one of my boots.
SERE NECKLACE KIT
Custom made titanium capsule with titanium chain with a ESERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance & Escape) kit. Passes metal detectors and is a secondary kit to the SERE Bracelet (see below). Items; modified plastic handcuff key, ceramic razor, titanium lock pick set, kevlar cordage, titanium cuff shim and gold + platinum bullion.
TAD LIFE CAPSULE KIT
I use this portable #military grade cache by Triple Aught Design primarily as a survival kit case. In this case an urban + travel survival kit; copy of passport, emergency cash, micro USB drive etc. For trekking and camping, a standard wilderness #survival kit. Attaches on my person or #backpack.
SKAGEN Ti WATCH
A low profile rectangular bezel titanium watch. I picked this up while in Prague after my Nike FuelBand broke down suddenly. This Danish made watch is ideal for vagabonding EDC as its surprisingly tough, waterproof, passes through metal detectors and is not flashy.
SERE BRACELET + GEAR SLING
I made this covert urban survival bracelet myself and is a one of a kind. At first glance it looks like and works well as a gear sling for my iPhone or anything latchable. Hidden within the bracelet is a SERE kit; plastic handcuff key, micro saw, v-cutter, and kevlar cordage for quick deployment.
COVERT TITANIUM CACHE
A micro cache with clip made entirely out of titanium to avoid metal detection, corrosion resistance and to decrease weight. Clipped hidden on my person to an undergarment or sock. The contents usually include medicine for my migraines or if anything small I don’t want being detected.
A concealable tactical knife designed specifically for self defense by Ka-Bar. I modified the blade to be less visible and the sheath to be more #EDC effective. As a world traveler and because of varying laws, I only carry this knife on my person in accepted cultures or if in the #wilderness.
As this is my urban EDC kit, I have all of these items at certain times such as today. Depending on which country I’m in and what I’ll be doing on a particular day, some of these items are left behind with my main pack or switched out to something more suitable or effective.
This is my personal vagabonding EDC gear.
