Friday Gear Report: Kaufmann Mercantile EDC Kit

afrankelSurvival, Survival Gear

The concept of making a survival keychain isn’t new. But one with higher quality parts that hits the mark between a day at the office and Armageddon is.

Meet the Kaufmann Mercantile EDC Kit. With a pry bar, tweezers, screwdriver keys, and a water proof lighter, the keychain EDC kit seems to cover the most basic of daily carry need–minus a cutting tool.

As Kaufmann Mercantile puts it, “There are different schools of thought for EDC. Some aim to be prepared for the apocalypse (hand gun, metal pen that doubles as a shiv), others need to be prepared for a surprise power point presentation (USB key, laser pointer, iPhone). Most of us fall somewhere in between.”

At $44 the EDC Kit isn’t a steal, but the quality materials and attention to detail may make it worth the cost.
