Everyday Carry: Drafting Table

Sep 26, 2018

Category: Everyday Carry

For a lot of folks, their everyday carry gear is separate from the tools they use for work. For instance, a lawyer doesn’t really ever need a folding multi-tool to complete his job — but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t keep one in his pocket or briefcase in the off-chance that something needs fixing. For others, however, their EDC is intrinsic to their careers. You see this a lot with blue-collar workers, mechanics who bring a tool bag with them everywhere they go or an electrician who’s never without wire cutters. But the finer arts also often call for the same overlap. In the case of this week’s pocket dump, we rounded up a loadout of gear you might see in the hands, on the desk, or in the pocket of a designer, artist, or architect.

EDC Card Multi-Tool

Small enough to fit in the credit card slot of your minimalist wallet, the EDC Card multi-tool boasts a whopping 30+ functions — ranging from rulers to hex wrenches, a bottle opener, and much more. It’s also built from super sturdy military-grade S35VN blade steel, making this perhaps the toughest and most useful single-piece multi-tool ever built.

Purchase: $50

Craighill Desk Knife

Whether opening boxes or building architectural models, a precision cutting tool is one of the most important things a man can keep on his desk. And few, if any, are quite as stunning and functional as the Craighill Desk Knife. Made from solid stainless steel, this USA-made Japanese-inspired blade is a true masterpiece.

Purchase: $60

Inventery Modular Pocket Fountain Pen

If ever there was a more versatile and handsome writing utensil than Inventery’s Modular Pocket Fountain Pen, we’ve yet to come across it. Its functionality includes that of a classic fountain pen, a standard ballpoint, and there’s even a tip that turns it into a touchscreen stylus. Better still, it’s also made from solid brass and comes with nine refillable cartridges.

Purchase: $135

Armogan E.N.B. Chronograph Watch

Inspired by Belgium’s celebrated Formula 1 team of the same name, the E.N.B. from Armogan is one of the most stunningly beautiful chronograph timepieces we’ve ever had the pleasure to gaze upon. And its internal features — including a Japanese quartz movement, stopwatch functionality, and a five-year battery life — certainly fit the bill, as well.

Purchase: $220
