Tusked Crescent’s goal is to provide gear that advantages the user in whatever way they choice to use them. We find the inspiration to stand our ground from our own mythological story of the Tusked Crescent that demonstrates the values of persistence, innovation, and audacity we strive for.
Tusked Crescent’s design philosophy is based on our understanding of everyday carry (EDC) principles.
The EDC approach, and much of the gear that forms the core of most carries, has emerged from the interests of the subculture of the “prepper” or survivalist, and the outdoor enthusiast. These groups -which form the core of the EDC community- have obtained much of their carries from outdoor and gun stores. In addition to mobile telephones and wallets, tactical and outdoor-related tools such as multi-tools and knives are EDC staples and ballistic nylon organizers or bags for carrying gear in. The EDC community has also shown great innovation in “repurposing” consumer items for their use. Powerful examples of this is the use of the Altoid tin to carry first aid or survival gear, or the use of paracord in a variety of forms for tying purposes. While these core carries continue to have widespread utility, the EDC group has much to benefit from considering other useful gear, that can traditionally only be acquired outside of the outdoor and gun store, such as more stationery, organizers and grooming products. Through ongoing research and development, Tusked Crescent will endeavor to provide the growing EDC community and its diversifying needs, with more choice in their quest for more useful carries.
Tusked Crescent’s mission is to provide a selection of quality items that are not going to quickly become obsolete. Some gear meets the test of time in proving its utility while other gear becomes obsolete. Tusked Crescent will produce and select gear that we believe will remain useful.
Tusked Crescent sells products made for use. While we like our clean-lined aesthetic, we wouldn’t want them to be viewed as too precious to use. If we provide gear that you use without hesitation then we have achieved part of design goal.
Tusked Crescent’s production and selection of gear will be informed by the needs of our customers and the EDC community as a whole through constant engagement. By listening, observing and researching these needs we will produce and select useful and quality gear that meets the needs of the EDC community. This commitment is based on recognition that the EDC community is best placed to know what it needs and has shown the ability to innovate solutions to meet those needs.
More important than these material aspects, however, is that at the heart of the EDC goal, there is the desire to be prepared to help oneself and others. This makes the EDC community a positive social force. Tusked Crescent shall endeavor to support this spirit through our expanding range of products and engagement with the community.
Tusked Crescent guarantees the quality and durability of its products with a swift return policy and a commitment to acting on critical customer and EDC community feedback.
