Everyday Carry or EDC generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks. These are for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, EDC refers to being prepared for both the known and the unknown.

It allows me to keep the few cards I carry&nbsp;safe and it discourages carrying cash. I also have a British Navy Knife from 1959. It doesn't have the marlinspike, which is my favorite spike, but it has a great can opener and knife. I have a pair of Ultimate Ears molded earbuds and I also wear a Fitbit Charge HR. It's the high techiest of my things.</p><p><strong>What do you do for a living these days, and how does that play into your typical carry setup?</strong></p><p>I'm a writer and I travel a lot. I've been writing about technology for about fifteen years and I've probably had every piece of portable tech ever in the world in my possession at some time in the past decade. I have streamlined my requirements, though, and have things down to a science when I travel.</p><p><strong>You’ve been writing for fifteen years at many reputable publications. Are there any notable sources of inspiration that pushed you and kept you focused?</strong></p><p>I'm inspired by a few people. I have a few writers I love but I'm really driven by William Gibson. He created a lot of stuff - journalism, fiction, short stories - and all of it was prescient and carefully written. He also knows good stuff when he sees it.</p><p><strong>Considering how you mainly cover high tech gadgets, it’s interesting to hear you’re a huge watch collector. What draws you to the vintage, low tech hobby of watch collecting?</strong></p><p>I love mechanical watches. They are wildly outdated and silly to wear but I will always have one on my wrist. The instinct to take care of a mechanical object is often lost on us these days because most of the things we own can't be maintained or repaired. It's nice to know that humans can still make amazing things with moving parts.</p><p><strong>Why do you EDC?</strong></p><p>Why did I pick this stuff? I love stuff that was made for the ages. A good mechanical watch will survive far into the future. A good knife is always there. I've seen so much ephemeral junk that it's exhausting. I want something that has survived. If Ben Franklin came back today he'd be most interested in my Fitbit and then maybe my credit cards. The rest of the stuff he'd understand.</p><p><strong>What’s your favorite watch in your rotation?</strong></p><p>I like my Omega Speedmaster Mark II. It's based on an old Omega from 1969. It melds a sort of post-Space Age styling with what was seen as modern in the early 1970s. It's a beautiful piece and it's really nicely redone.</p><p><strong>Do you have any recent accomplishments or interesting projects in the works that you'd like to tell us about?</strong></p><p>I'm becoming an entrepreneur and I'm working on a tech startup right now. That's really interesting. I'm also about to publish a book about Marie Antoinette's watch. I'm constantly flipping between old and new, high and low tech. It's part of how I grew up. I was born in 1975 and I remember a time when there were no computers and suddenly there were. It's a jarring experience and it defines our generation. We think TV is OK, but iPads aren't, but I'd argue it's still the opposite. And I think a good book is better than both of those things.</p><p><strong>What advice would you give to&nbsp;our aspiring writers in the EDC community?</strong></p><p>If you want to be a writer you have to write all the time. Reading is fine but it's not preparation for true writing. Making a living by telling stories or by getting your ideas across is a real privilege and it's almost impossible to pull off without intelligent and careful practice.</p><p><em>You can follow John on Twitter at <a href="https://twitter.com/johnbiggs">@johnbiggs</a>.</em></p><p><em>Header photo by&nbsp;<span>Marina FIlipovic Marinshe</span></em></p></blockquote> http://everydaycarry.com/posts/5036/Interview-John-Biggs-Writer http://everydaycarry.com/posts/5036/Interview-John-Biggs-Writer Fri, 27 Feb 2015 21:00:00 +0000 watches editor john_biggs writer interviews everyday_carry Bellroy Carry Out <strong>Submitted by <a href='http://everydaycarry.com/profile/2/Everyday-Carry'>Everyday Carry</a></strong><div><img src='http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef965147a39.jpg' alt='' /></div> <hr/><blockquote><div class="abstract"><em>Whatever you’re carrying, Bellroy’s Carry Out has the room and organizational affinity to handle it, but also conforms to your needs — and the size of your jean pockets — for when you want just the essentials.

the first two parts of the <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/tagged/carry_smarter" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Carry Smarter</em></a><em>:</em><span>&nbsp;Titanium series</span>, I talked about how Titanium's <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/posts/4922/Whytanium-4-Practical-Properties-of-Ti">useful properties </a>are able to benefit the gear in your EDC, as well as showcase <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/posts/4727/Titanium-Understanding-EDCand039s-Precious-Metal">its unique luster</a> on beautiful products.</p><p>Given how useful titanium can be and how abundant it is in the Earth's crust, you'd think Ti tools would be more common, if not at least less expensive. However, extracting titanium from naturally occuring alloys is not an easy process. Plus, its strength makes it costly and difficult to machine.</p><p>Luckily, there are some manufacturers that manage to put forth capable titanium&nbsp;gear at an accessible price point. What this means is that owning Titanium is a privilege for everyone, from the simplest one-piece multitool to the highest-tolerance custom knives. To conclude our Carry Smarter:&nbsp;Titanium series, we recommend some of our favorite products that not only use Ti to great effect but also won't break the bank. Add any of our sub-$200&nbsp;picks to your EDC and enjoy the benefits of this truly obtainable material.</p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-3810-Dimension-Folding-Knife/dp/B00AU6NXJO?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef81009bf28.jpg" title="Kershaw Dimension" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>Kershaw Dimension</strong></p><p>Kershaw is well-recognized for their affordable knives, but few realize they've dabbled with Titanium beyond coating their knives' handles. The Dimension sports a capable 8Cr13MoV steel deployed with Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted flipper opening, a tri-point deep pocket clip, and of course, Titanium handles with deeply-machined grooves for better grip. In place of a liner or framelock, the Dimension employs a push-button lock for ease of use with opening and closing. If you've been wondering what the fuss is about with the feel of Ti knife handles, the Kershaw Dimension is a great place to start.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-3810-Dimension-Folding-Knife/dp/B00AU6NXJO?tag=09811-20">BUY ($48)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Techno-Titanium-Plain-Knife/dp/B006L6WSIY?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef810f34303.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>Spyderco Techno</strong></p><p>The Spyderco Techno is one tank of a knife. This Marcin Slysz design is beefy, rugged, and designed from the ground up to be a workhorse. With a thick, fully-flat ground 2.55" CTS-XHP steel blade and solid Titanium handles with a Reeve integrated liner lock, the Techno definitely puts Ti's qualities to good use, allowing the knife to be light enough for EDC but strong enough for every task.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Techno-Titanium-Plain-Knife/dp/B006L6WSIY?tag=09811-20">BUY ($177)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Fenix-E99-flashlight-EdisonBright-batteries/dp/B00NZLIN7I?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef8130ecd46.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>Fenix E99Ti Flashlight</strong></p><p>This limited edition light from Fenix takes the best qualities from their portable E series line and wraps them up in a sleek Titanium housing. The E99Ti features twisty activation with three brightness levels at a maximum of 100 lumens, while its body is lightweight and knurled for excellent carry and handling off a keychain. If there's one piece of gear that would help you "get" just how nice Titanium is to handle, it's carrying and using a full Titanium light such as this.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/Fenix-E99-flashlight-EdisonBright-batteries/dp/B00NZLIN7I?tag=09811-20">BUY ($47)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-T10T-CW-Single-Flashlight/dp/B00JZOZBBK?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef81490f396.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>ThruNite T10T Flashlight</strong></p><p>A single-AA cell, pocket-friendly light is rather common. A light with a choice of cool or neutral white tint with 0.15 lumen firefly mode, rear clicky and can tailstand is rare. All those features sealed in a stylish, indestructible Titanium body&nbsp;is <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZM1mc0MiMts" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">exceptional</a>. ThruNite being able to deliver solidly on each of those features in the T10T and keeping the price below $50? That pushes this light from being a passing recommendation on this list into being a must-own in any flashlight collection.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-T10T-CW-Single-Flashlight/dp/B00JZOZBBK?tag=09811-20">BUY ($42)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SGG731-Titanium-Silver-Watch/dp/B000J1YMWW?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef816ce6b85.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>Seiko SGG731 Titanium Dress Watch</strong></p><p>Seiko is no stranger to providing fantastic value in their watches, and many of their models have become EDC classics. It comes to no surprise that they're able to offer a completely Titanium timepiece with plenty of desirable features. The SGG731 presents a classic day/date dress watch design, with a 38 mm Ti case and bracelet. It's water-resistant up to 100 meters, sealed up with scratch-resistant Sapphire glass. The best part is this Titanium/Sapphire combination, a premium feature on higher-end watches, won't cost an arm and a leg: this is a lot of watch for under $150.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SGG731-Titanium-Silver-Watch/dp/B000J1YMWW?tag=09811-20">BUY ($147)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Boker-Plus-Vox-Access-Tool/dp/B004OKCGGI?tag=09811-20"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef81511fcb2.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>Boker Plus Vox Access Tool</strong></p><p>We're big fans of one-piece multitools, and appreciate how they are able to use Titanium's strength in heavy applications but still be light enough to disappear on a keychain. The problem is, many of these tools are either exclusive or made of heavier steel to save on manufacturing costs, as Titanium is more difficult to process being a harder metal. It is, then, a pleasure to see German-based Boker Plus&nbsp;produce the Vox Access Tool, which packs some uncommon but welcome tools in its form factor. Its carabiner-style gate makes split ring carry easy, and also doubles as a bottle opener. It has a thick bottom edge suitable for prying and pulling tasks, with side jimping for improved grip. Its main feature is the carbide glass-breaker point on its rear, protected by o-rings. Best of all, at under 4" and weighing under an ounce, the Vox Access Tool is invisible in your carry until called into action.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/Boker-Plus-Vox-Access-Tool/dp/B004OKCGGI?tag=09811-20">BUY ($28)</a></p><p><a href="http://www.bigidesign.com/welcome/ti-post-pen-stylus/"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-02-26/154ef815b94e5c.jpg" class="fr-fin"></a></p><p><strong>BIGiDESIGNS Ti-POST RAW</strong></p><p>We love pens and writing around here (have you seen our Carry Smarter <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/posts/4405/Why-You-Should-Carry-A-Pen" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">writing series</a>?), so it's only fitting that we featured one on this list. The Ti-POST RAW from Big Idea Designs (reviewed <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/post/92645217198" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>)&nbsp;is a solid TA5 Titanium jotter and stylus, as well as an inexpensive entry into the world of machined pens. With its focus on clean aesthetic, balance, and versatility (compatible with over 35 refills!), the Ti-POST RAW performs its tasks with the strength befitting of its Titanium shell.
