We'll admit it: we can't resist drooling over high-end gear. We think about which knives to carry like some people's wives think about what shoes to wear.

Since I wanted to join the fun, I've included a photo of my own minimalist working-from-home EDC below. It consists of a 5.11 Tactical Apex T-Rail belt, Fossil leather wallet, and keys with a Photon LED Micro-Light. There's also a Gerber Shard keychain tool, which has been wrapped in gutted OD green paracord for added grip (here's a how-to video). The watch is a Citizen BM8180-03E with Eco-Drive solar-powered operation.
The knife is always a hard choice, but today I'm carrying a Kershaw Link Blackwash. It's a really well-built folding knife that's made in the USA—and it'll only set you back $70.
