One of the most precious metals known to man, gold has had a pretty major impact on human history and the shaping of our world as we know it. The first solid evidence of our obsession with the 79th element dates back to ancient Egyptian mythology and it can be found in temples, tombs, and even the caps of the Pyramids of Giza were originally covered in gold. Jump ahead several thousands of years and the shiny metal was directly responsible for major westward expansion in North America, especially in California, the Klondike, and Alaska. Today, much of our technology hinges on the inclusion of gold, especially in the manufacturing of semiconductors. Of course, some of its most apparent applications can still be found in the realm of small goods, like everyday carry gear. Even imitation gold can be beautiful and alluring in the right circumstances. And that’s what we have for you with this EDC pocket dump: beautiful golden gear, both real and mock, for your carrying pleasure.
