Gerber makes some of the most popular and reliable tools in the business (the Shard remains one of the all-time most popular items on the site), so a knife designed by knife maker Bill Harsey deserves a closer look. The Air Ranger comes with features with the makings of a staple EDC knife. A 3.3” 7Cr17MoV high-carbon, drop point blade resists corrosion during daily use, while having enough length and a shape for hardier tasks. You can deploy the Air Ranger from either hand thanks to its dual thumbstuds, and the blade secures with a liner lock. Crosshatch-textured G-10 handles come with this updated version of the Air Ranger and provide exceptional grip, working well for its purpose as a hardy everyday blade. They keep the knife secure in hand and keep things light while maintaining rugged durability. Its handle also include a few options for everyday carry, including a pocket clip and lanyard hole to suit your preference.

It's never a bad time to carry a good pen, especially one designed to take on the toughest everyday challenges. From tackling harsh writing deadlines to punching through glass in cases of emergency, the Impromptu—true to its name—prepares you for the unexpected. As a jotter, it uses weather-resistant Rite in the Rain ink cartridges that write in all conditions, deployed with a reliable push-button clicky switch. Its machined steel body is thick and beefy, but apply force to its glass-breaking tempered tip and you can thrust through any trouble. Deep grooves in the body help with grip, and a Cerakote ceramic coating keeps its finish durable and resilient. Its stainless steel pocket clip also lets you easily carry the Impromptu for EDC. If you need a USA-made pen that can both outlive you and maybe even save your life someday, pick up the Gerber Impromptu at the link below.
