Why handkerchiefs? A handkerchief also called a hanky, or hank is typically a hemmed square of thin fabric that can be carried in the pocket or bag, and which was originally intended for personal hygiene purposes such as wiping one's hands or face, or blowing one's nose.

Times have changed. EDC handkerchiefs are used for a multitude of purposes.  First and foremost, they are used to enhance an EDC collection of guns, knives, pocket tools/gear (titanium, steel, brass, copper, etc.), lanyards, beads, flashlights, pens, notebooks (Field Notes are the most popular), and a host of items that typically fit in or clip to pockets.

Other reasons to carry a handkerchief include:

Keeping your beard free of wing sauce and pizza cheese.

You have a baby and you’d rather have an awesome looking spit cloth than that old diaper.

You have a large dog (mine is a Cane Corso) and they produce massive amounts of slobber.

You test your knife sharpening skills on yourself and they are awesome! MEDIC!!!

You sweat.  A LOT.

Your black suit needs a little color.

When you hear the Star Spangled Banner, you get a little misty. 

You don’t want to scratch the hood of your truck when you set your gun down to reload the magazine.

The list goes on.

The styles vary from plain, one color, one sided handkerchiefs to flamboyant pattern that could resemble a quilt of yesteryear. Cotton is the primary fabric used, however some makers use silk, rayon, or polyester blends. 

Stylish EDC Anchor Hanks make a unique gift that you won’t find at Walmart, Target, or Home Depot.  Birthdays, Fathers Day, Christmas, Graduation are great opportunities to show how awesome your gift giving skills are.

EDC Anchor Hanks aren’t just for men. Several designs are gender neutral, and there are more in the works made specifically for the female handkerchief fan.
