Your company or trading name

SHTF EDC

Tell us about where you’re from, what you do, how it all started and why you enjoy it.

I am currently from Stafford, UK. But have lived and worked all over the world. Currently serving as an electrician within the HM Forces for 24 years. Have always been into EDC with work but never been a maker until now. There is nothing better than talking to people from all over the globe about colours, designs and ideas and seeing them come to life.

What are your aims and are there any items or products you’d love to make?

Always thinking of new ideas , everything is a practice for the next project. As I become more experienced my brain wonders and ideas are born. I would love to become a named make one day like so many other talented members in this group.

What do you consider your greatest achievement in the work you do associated with EDC?

Only officially started to sell in Oct 2020. Seeing it blossom and spread globally is my greatest achievement so far.

What is the best thing you have made and why?

Recently as a member of a Secret Secret Santa group. I had chosen for me a fellow Cooperator that keeps his cards close to his chest and was not an easy FB Stalk. But after some thought about what I could possible do an idea was born from a simple Pinterest image. I made him a custom one off Brass Bottle Opener/Prybar from scratch to finished product in 3 hours. Not the standard flat bar but straight from a piece of round bar.

What EDC gear is in your pockets right now?

Custom SHTF EDC Hank / Carbon Scale CRKT Pilar / Coop V2 coin(Favourite)/ Orange Olight S1R Baton II

What’s the favourite piece of EDC gear that you own?

Would have to say my 3D Jelly Belly Shriek made by the very talented Jenks Taner.

What EDC item would you love to own and why?

For me its something really small but currently rare as Rocking Horse S**t. A Boker Nano
