The reason I love white elephant gift exchanges around the holidays, is because it is a tradition my family has participated in for many years. At our family holiday party each year, everyone brings a present that is $35 or less. Each gift is opened by a member of the family and can be stolen by other family members up to two times. I received the Kershaw Pocket Knife at our 2009 holiday party at my parent's house, after utilizing the final steal in our last round of swaps. It was a highly sought after item, and I was so happy to be walking away with it. Everything about this pocket knife is great - the size, weight, and blade-style make it a perfect EveryDay Carry item; and while I have a lot of knives in my collection, the Kershaw Pocket Knife is easily the best knife in it's price point, and it will be a staple in my EDC collection for many years to come.
In 1988, my Stepdad gave me my first Space Pen...and in many ways he is also responsible for encouraging my love for Everyday Carry. The Space Pen has been a constant carry for me for the last 28 years not only because of it's nostalgia, but also because of how reliable it is in any given situation. The Space Pen was designed for NASA in the 1960's because of it's versatility and ability to write under water, in temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit, in zero gravity, and at any angle, even upside down. It is sleek and compact, making it easy to carry, and incredibly handy when a friend or client asks, "does anyone have a pen?"
