Austin Phillips has collected knives since he was old enough to cut his fingers open playing with them. This passion led him to start collecting all kinds of gear items for outdoors, tactical, and everyday use. One day he decided he could design and manufacture similar items, made by a collector for collectors. Using his engineering skills, artistic abilities and love for all things tools, he went on to create his first product, the Wise Guy Bottle Opener. Since then he has gone one to make several others and continues to produce quality EDC gear for the community and collectors.
