I’m guessing that a lot of our readers have some sort of EDC (Every Day Carry) setup that they carry about with them for those just in case moments. The folks at Gerber (the knife a survival tool company, not the baby food maker) have embraced the concept of EDC with their own line ofRead More…

Posted in: Gear, Pocket Gear, Reviews

I have said it before, and I will probably say it many more times here on The Gadgeteer pages: I am a pocket multi-tool junkie. I love having the ability to carry around small gadgets that can perform several different functions. I especially like items that I can fit on a keyring or into aRead More…

A few days ago I posted a short news article about an auto safety tool called the ExiTool by CRKT. I thought it looked like a handy tool to own, so I ordered one for myself. It arrived a few days ago and although I haven’t had the opportunity to use it to help me escapeRead More…

The Knife Fork & Spoon – a new take on an old problem

on Friday, June 28th, 2013

How do you improve upon the basic knife, fork, and spoon concept, something that has been around for years? How do you make that item into a tool for your on-the-go-everyday lifestyle? I recently came across an interesting take on this dilemma in a current project on Kickstarter. The Knife Fork & Spoon by John-PaulRead More…

It’s time again for another inventory of our everyday carry items,  or as I loosely refer to them “my survival gear”, so I wanted to share them with the outside world. And surprisingly,  I found out that I use each and every item daily in one form or another. And some more than others.

Knork – A friend for your spork

Posted in: Home, Kitchen, News

You’ve no doubt heard of a spork which looks like a spoon with short fork-like tines on the edge. Campers and EDC fans like them because they combine two tools into one. Enter the Knork which looks like an ordinary stainless steel fork till you take a closer look. The outside tines have been beveled without beingRead More…

All the other team members are showing off their wares, so suppose I’d better join the herd.  Problem is I actually have more than one EDC bag depending on things like day of the week, mode of transport, and destination.

My EDC is actually pretty light compared to a few years back when I carried extra things like a laptop and loads of paperwork.  I have 3 businesses in 3 different locations so it wasn’t ideal to always have to carry so many things around, even though the car would be the one carrying it. Read More…
