A few years ago, when this blog barely had a registered domain name, I experimented with expanding the site’s content and changing its direction in an attempt to be more helpful to my readers, straying away from a sort of personal mood board of EDC items I liked by commenting on submitted EDCs. One of the first contributors I had to the site, Kent Willert, aka wiseform, helped me get started by submitting a few pocket dumps of his own for me to publish. Recently, Kent has been putting out some fantastic, hand-crafted carbon fiber rings from his Arizona-based company, refractory. He graciously sent me one of his products asking for an honest review, so I’ll run you guys through my thoughts on the ring in hopes to help Kent out like he helped me when I started.

The EDC Song by fxhummel1
Editor’s Note: Sorry for the lack of updates recently, but I hope everyone had a restful weekend… Here’s a sort of tongue-in-cheek EDC parody/cover of your favorite Alanis Morissette single.
Corter for Boylston Trading Co.
Leather Cover for Field Notes Brand notebooks.
Oil tanned shell with a natural vegetable tanned interior.
Tanned, oiled and buffed by hand.
Editor’s Note: I got to handle these notebook covers while I was in Boston this past summer. Once again, Corter delivers an impeccable product in terms of fit and finish (I ordered my wallet and phone case from him a year ago and they’ve held up flawlessly). To those of you who carry your pocket notebooks naked and experience durability issues, consider one of these covers as a simple, reversible way to add some luxury, and, more importantly, protection to your notebook carry.
