James Slatter (@canadiancanuck11) a millwork installation business owner tells us a bit about what he carries and why.
I must admit that I find myself missing the Orion Hellcat. I spent about 2 weeks with the burgundy-dialed variant and truly enjoyed every minute with it. The size and proportions of the watch are pretty much perfect in my opinion and I think this design will speak to a wide range of watch enthusiasts. Nick at Orion set out to create a pilot watch with the Hellcat, but I think he did something more than that.
This bag has style. The waxed canvas and leather exterior just looks like a man’s bag. More importantly, it’s built to take a beating and last a long time. Nutsac’s Satchel 15 is a great bag for the minimalist everyday carry but will have a hard time stowing much more than the essentials. A great bag for the thoughtful packer.
Tallac House set out to make a perfect lip balm holder and they hit the nail on the head; I absolutely love it. It does everything the description claimed it would do and it was made really well too. My lip balm was always with my keys and kept in perfect condition. Not to mention its really inexpensive, at only 12.50 it literally pays for itself after preventing me from buying 20 lip balms a year. Super convenient and such a cool product!
From the M390 blade and Titanium frame to swappable overlays and great build quality, Vero Engineering’s Synapse has got a ton of things going right for it. I highly recommend picking one of these up if you’re looking to get a knife that features a unique design in a medium-sized package.
CRKT has some of the most affordable folding knives on the market. The Offbeat™ II is the nylon handled version of its all stainless steel cousin (aptly named just: Offbeat™). The Offbeat™ II follows CRKT’s bread and butter by delivering a well-made tactical knife in a budget package. This is just what I expect from CRKT – nothing more, nothing less. A good knife for a beginning collector.
