Urban EDC and I had an idea for fun giveaway. I tried something kind of like this with the podcast a few episodes back but it wasn't as organized as this.
The single most common email I get is a request for a recommendation. People want to know what knife fits their budget and their requirements for steel or blade length or pocket clip. They want to know if a pen is worth the price. They want an idea if the Klaurus Mi7 is worth it (no, no, hell no).
ere is how the contest will work. Between now and when Episode 90 records (late July, early August), post a recommendation request on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #edcgetrecd and you are automatically entered. We will pick the best questions, the most representative requests, and read them on the air and Episode 90 cohost Nick Shabazz and I will read them on the air and make recommendations. At the end of the episode we will pick one tweet or Instagram post with the hashtag and that person will win a $50 gift card to Urban EDC.
n case you haven't been over to Urban EDC, they run one of the best curated collection of EDC gear on the web. There are lots of pretenders out there, lots of places with clean designs (though none with photos as good as Urban EDC's), but Urban EDC really goes the extra mile finding the coolest gear, the best designs, and the nicest limited editions. They had Sinner EDC stuff before anyone else. They had some amazing special edition Muyshondt lights. And over and over again, they get sweet high end gear before anyone else. Check every Wednesday at 12 for gear drops of exclusive stuff.
Go take a look at their stuff. Follow them on Instagram (the pics are amazing, somewhere between a Zen rock garden and promotional photos taken by pros for major knife brands). And tag Nick and I with #edcgetrecd questions.
