EDC is an unfamiliar term for most people, and about eight out of ten people don't understand it. The full name of EDC is Everyday Carry, and the initials mean daily carry. It probably means the things you carry when you go out every day, such as mobile phones, watches, bags, lighters, etc. EDC refers to a multi-purpose or special tool for daily use or dealing with emergencies. EDC players are relatively little in China. In small cities like the author living, few people know about it. I have been playing EDC for at least three years, which has received a lot of criticism. Most people think that my paranoia is so deep to take these things out of the house. Some people regard me as a thug (the author is a knife complex) and I have faced expulsion several times. But none of these can reduce my love for EDC, presumably most players have encountered this situation. EDC really has an inexplicable charm that makes me addicted to it. Why should I play EDC? To be honest, I can't tell myself, but it's a pleasant feeling. Back to the topic, I wrote this article to let people who don’t know EDC understand what EDC is. I don’t want you to pay attention to EDC, but to change your views on EDC players around you.
