That's why a lot of the best and most popular knives for everyday carry rely on a frame lock. It uses the strength of the handle or frame of the knife itself to lock the blade in place, minimizing any play to take on even the biggest cutting jobs. In this guide, we'll highlight a few of our favorite framelock knives from this year so far that deserve your attention. Whether you're looking for your first EDC knife or wanting to make an upgrade to something new and refreshing, we've got you covered.

NutSac Satchel Pro

For managing a few pieces of overflow gear when your pockets aren't enough, a full-on pack might feel like overkill. That's where a compact, easy-access bag like Satchel Pro from NutSac shines. It's sized just-right for carrying essentials too big for your pockets with the added bonus of looking stylish too. It features a durable classic waxed canvas and leather build that's timeless and practical.

The Satchel Pro is designed to carry your personal electronics such as the iPad Pro or the Surface Pro. At 4.5 liters in capacity, there's space left over for the rest of your EDC gear as well. The plethora of pockets and organizational space inside and outside of the bag expand its utility and let you carry more. And because the bag is surprisingly a lot more structured than your standard waxed canvas and leather bag, it's easy to pack your valuables and maximize the available space.

The attractive styling of the bag also belies its role as a carrier of your electronic valuables. With a more traditional and low-profile design, it doesn't stand out as an expensive target. Plus, the Martexin waxed canvas and full-grain leather construction add a significant amount of durability to the bag. You wouldn't want to throw the bag around with your breakable valuables in it because it lacks padding, but it can actually take some scratches and scrapes here and there. The waxed canvas construction also helps it stand up to the elements as well.

This American-made satchel lets you maximize your carry, and it helps you look good while doing it. When you search for the right bag to carry your small electronics, consider the NutSac Satchel Pro. You can learn more about the bag and grab one for yourself at the link below.

Dango D01 Slate Gray Limited Edition

Dango's D01 minimalist wallet has a sleek, sophisticated styling fit for the office with a rugged aluminum frame built for longterm performance. It's the kind of wallet that says a lot by doing little, with—as its name suggests—a dapper, professional look that instantly dresses up any EDC. But even when you're suiting up, it pays to add a little pop to your ensemble. So with the limited edition Slate Gray colorway, Dango gives the D01 a striking statement right down the middle, giving the minimalist wallet a high-impact edge in style.

If you’re familiar with the rest of Dango’s product line then you’ll see how the D01 Dapper fits right in. It's a fully structured wallet with a low-profile design and less tactical flair, making it TSA-friendly for urban carry. Dango combined their usual premium leather with durable aerospace aluminum resulting in a wallet with comfortable handfeel and touchpoints that doesn't take up too much pocket space.

Even loaded with 6 cards, the entire package is only 0.3” thick. It does accommodate up to 12 cards total and keeps them safe from skimming thanks to RFID protection. The D01's striking red silicone band lets it secure a few bills, perfect for carrying an emergency stash of cash for the places that don't take cards. The notch along the side of the wallet lets you easily access your cards, and the integrated bottle opener is perfect for relaxing after a long workday.

From the office to a night on the town to your next weekend getaway, the Dapper Wallet keeps it slim, rugged, and stylish. Add a splash of color to your EDC by clicking on the link below.
