Massdrop x Ferrum Forge Falcon S35VN Folding Knife

While mass-produced knives can get the job done, there's a difference between a knife that simply cuts and one that slices with style. And when you put together three industry icons' heads together to design and produce a knife, you can bet the result is nothing short of extraordinary. Designed by Ferrum Forge, a small operation out of San Diego that's big on custom design and quality, manufactured by WE Knife Co., a solid production company already making waves in the knife world, and produced by Massdrop, the hobbyist and enthusiast destination, extraordinary is exactly what you get with the Ferrum Forge Falcon.

Simply handling the Falcon gives you an idea of how scrutinized its design and features were, as expected of a custom knife from Ferrum Forge. S35VN steel was selected for its blade, the flagship steel from Crucible Industries and Chris Reeve that gives impressive performance and edge retention.

Don't be fooled by the blade's compact 2.9” length (you'll appreciate being able to carry it in more places, though). It features a bold, drop point design with details that draw your hand towards a secure grip. These include a large finger choil to lock your index finger in place while cutting, and a concave cutout with jimping along the blade's spine for a secure thumb grip.

The Falcon's understated handles belie the fit, finish, and function within them. 6AL4V titanium gives the knife an excellent strength while keeping a light weight, and titanium's springiness lends itself to a more reliable frame lock. The Falcon's blade deploys through Ferrum Forge's caged bearing flip action, giving it a smooth and effortless action that lets you get to the cutting much faster.

While engaged, the blade is held in place with a hardened steel lockbar insert, designed for the long haul to keep the knife safe even with hard use. A reversible 3D-machined titanium clip rounds out the Falcon's handle features, letting righties and lefties alike carry the knife with ease.

Thanks to WE Knife Co's production capability and Massdrop's enthusiast reach, the Falcon can reach the hands and pockets of every knife user, from collectors to hard-use outdoorsmen. Check out the link below to grab this one-of-a-kind collaboration for yourself.

Kershaw Reverb

One look at Kershaw's new Reverb and you already know it's a knife built for everyday carry. It's clear from the sweeping edge on its blade to its minimalist construction, not to mention the built-in carabiner. The Reverb—true to its name—echoes features on both urban and outdoor knives to give you a unique blade that fits any EDC. As an ultralight pack knife it's indispensable as much as it is invisible, and as an everyday knife it's as capable as it is compact.

While its 8Cr13MoV steel blade measures only 2.5”, it makes the most of its length with its excellent blade geometry. Its modified drop-point shape, sweeping belly, and piercing point let it handle a variety of cutting tasks. It conspicuously doesn't come with Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening, thumb stud, or flipper tab (meaning nothing to snag on your gear). But thanks to a recess on the blade, manually opening the Reverb one-handed is easy.

Dual-material handles give both style and strength where they're needed. G-10 with a contoured carbon fiber overlay keeps the Reverb's front handle light, while its rear handle comes in steel to lend extra strength to its frame lock. These handles are also home to a pocket clip and carabiner, giving you plenty of options for carrying the knife, whether clipped in your pocket or hanging off your pack. And at only 1.6 ounces, it's one of the most versatile ultralight knives you can add to your EDC. You can pick up the Reverb from Kershaw at the link below.

Current Bags

If you have a smartphone, you know what it’s like to leave the house and realize your phone is about to die. A dead battery means missed calls, emails, or worse — no memes and cat videos to get you through the morning. You could carry an external charger, but a battery brick isn't exactly the easiest thing to stuff in your pocket. Current Bag Co. aims to solve that problem with two stylish backpacks on Kickstarter—the Move and the Classic—complete with integrated batteries for charging your mobile devices.

A good EDC bag is built with materials you know can keep up with your daily life. The water-resistant blended nylon of the Classic will keep your essentials dry when you get caught in the rain, while microsuede lining the laptop compartment will protect your devices from scratches. There's also a main compartment that gives you plenty of space for notebooks or a light jacket. And on the front, you'll find a smaller pocket for quick access to your most used essentials.

But the killer app of Current Bags has to be the built-in charging station. It comes with a 10,000 mAh battery with two outputs that can charge your smartphone 4-6 times so you'll stay connected, all day long.

The Move bag is just as durable but with a slightly different design. It's also made of a water-resistant material (heathered polyester), but doesn’t have a dedicated laptop compartment. Instead, the laptop sleeve relocates to the main compartment to cut down on the bag's overall size and weight. It comes with a 5,000 mAh battery that can charge a smartphone 2-3 times and a zippered quick access pocket on the front.

If you’re looking for tech-centric EDC bags that keep your gear charged without sacrificing style, the Move and the Classic backpacks might be for you. Learn more about them by clicking the link below.

Giveaway: Kershaw Leek CF

Update: Congratulations to Tony D., winner of this week's giveaway!

The Leek is one of Kershaw's most popular products, thanks to its EDC-friendly size and versatile features. With a new suit of carbon fiber on its handles and packing high-performance CPM 154 steel, the new Leek CF takes one of the best and makes it even better. The best part: we're giving one away for free! This week, we're giving a lucky winner this updated classic, brought to you by our sponsor Kershaw.

Kershaw Leek 1660CF Carbon Fiber

How do you improve upon a knife that's already an EDC crowd favorite? For Kershaw and their popular Leek knife, all it takes is a fresh set of premium materials. With its upgraded blade steel and gorgeous carbon fiber handle, the new 1660CF Leek just got prettier, lighter, and stronger.

Instead of using heavy stainless steel handles, Kershaw gave the Leek the gentleman's knife treatment by swapping in stunning carbon fiber. This attractive patterning allows this new Leek to operate in a more dressy ensemble than the original. But it does more than just look great: the carbon fiber handle actually makes for a lighter knife. Weighing in at only 2.3 ounces, the Leek CF weighs 25% less than the classic Leek.

Kershaw also opted for CPM 154 blade steel in the Leek CF as a more premium option compared to the Sandvik 14C28N steel you can find on the standard Leek. CPM 154 has a higher carbon content and toughness, allowing it to hold an edge longer and last against hard use. It retains its excellent modified drop-point blade shape, making it great for cutting tasks. It also keeps the fast one-handed SpeedSafe assisted flipper opening.

If you haven't yet picked up a Leek for your everyday carry, this is the model to get. Even if you have the original Leek, the new one cuts it that much better. Make it a part of your EDC today at the link below.

StatGear TriTac EDC Pen

For plenty of us, jotting down notes and making quick cuts here and there are all in a day's work. If you're spending time switching between a tactical pen and your EDC knife, take a look at the TriTac EDC Pen on Kickstarter. It gives the word “penknife” a whole new meaning, integrating a small blade (and a punch) into its tactical pen form factor.

The knife in the TriTac is a folding sub-2" 440C stainless steel blade located at the tip of the pen. It's ideal for light utility work such as opening letters and boxes. Because it's at the tip, you can use the body of the pen for extra leverage and grip despite the blade's small size. You'll also find a tungsten carbide glass breaker on this tip when the knife is closed, which can come in handy in an emergency.

It's a capable pen as well, using the versatile Fisher Space Pen cartridge for reliable, write-anywhere performance. A nifty bolt-action mechanism exposes and retracts the tip for writing. It's intuitive and fun, and you just might find yourself activating it just to fidget around a bit.

This unique pen is available to you in both lightweight aluminum and titanium on its fully-funded Kickstarter. Go ahead, take a look, and make a pledge to get one of your own at the link below.

Gerber Center-Drive

Ounce for ounce, nothing comes close to packing the most utility into your everyday carry as multi-tools do. But for tough tasks, using their smaller tools doesn't always feel as effortless as getting the job done with their full-sized counterparts. That's why Gerber put ergonomics at the forefront of their new Center-Drive multi-tool. Its primary tools were designed for full-sized performance where it counts—real world use—in a portable, EDC-ready package.

The Center-Drive's namesake feature is the large, curved arm on its bit driver. At 3.25” long, this locking arm positions the bit on the center axis of the tool and gives you more room to work with, which makes using it feel more like a dedicated screwdriver. And because you don't need to fully open the tool to center the driver, you can get a more controlled grip on the tool in its wider, closed position. With traditional multi-tool designs, they can feel lopsided and difficult to turn or even uncomfortable to grip when partially unfolded. The Center Drive also uses standard bits, letting you easily swap in or replace ones you might already have in your EDC.

Despite its name, Gerber didn't stop refining the Center-Drive at the bit driver. They've added practical design tweaks to the pliers and knife as well. You can slide out its set of spring-loaded pliers with just the push of your thumb for instant access. Its blade even measures in larger than many pocket-sized multi-tools at 3.25” long. A selection of sturdy tools, like a pry bar with an integrated nail puller, a bottle opener, awl, and file round out the set.

The Center-Drive is available with options for additional bits and a MOLLE-compatible sheath for easy carrying at the link below.

Giveaway: SureFire P2X Fury Intellibeam

Update: Congrats to Dane G, winner of this week's giveaway! Thanks to everyone who entered. Stay tuned for more giveaways here on EverydayCarry.com.

A flashlight is one of the best things you can add to your everyday carry, and we've got just the thing to add some power to your pocket. The best part? We're giving it away for free! This week, we're giving one lucky reader an intelligent tactical flashlight, brought to you by our sponsor, SureFire. You know the name. They've been making some of the hardest-use flashlights and tactical equipment for nearly 40 years, gear designed for the harshest conditions and professions.

Trucker's Friend Survival Tool

Let's face it, some tasks are just too big for the average EDC multi-tool to handle. Scraping ice off your windshield, cutting branches down, or hammering spikes usually need something a little more heavy duty. In those situations, it’s good to have something in your arsenal that can step up to the occasion. The American-made Trucker’s Friend Survival Tool is a multipurpose hand tool that has your back when pocket tools just don’t cut it.

Don’t let the name fool you. Though it was designed with the needs of professional truck drivers in mind, the Trucker’s Friend is also great for outdoor activities like camping. For starters, the fiberglass handle and shock-absorbing grip makes chopping firewood less of a pain. And while hammering down tent stakes usually requires a mallet (or large rock), the Trucker’s Friend has you covered there too with a hammer built into the blade.

Camping benefits aside, you’ll want this tool by your side in emergency situations as well. The cast-alloy steel blade is perfect for prying, pulling, and cutting objects out of your way should you need to make a quick escape. At 2.3 pounds, it isn’t exactly the kind of tool you keep in your pockets, but it’s worth keeping around the house, in a bug out bag, or in your car EDC when you need it.

If you like to be prepared for any situation, whether it's in your ride, on the campsite, or even at home, the Trucker’s Friend is one tool that could come in handy. Make sure to pick one up for yourself or someone you know by clicking the link below (also available on Amazon).

Gamble Gaslight

With all the stuff we carry, it's really easy to lose track of our gear. Keychains are especially notorious for mysteriously going missing, not to mention whatever you toss in your EDC pack. Having the right tool for the job when we need it the most is crucial—after all, you don't want to be fumbling for the right set of keys outside in the rain or rummaging through your backpack looking for a flashlight or knife in an emergency.

That's where a locator fob like Gamble's Gaslight comes in. It's an addition to your everyday carry that you can attach to a keychain or piece of gear that instantly makes it easier to find (not to mention look way more stylish).

Within the frame of the Gaslight is an Embrite module, a phosphorescent pellet that retains a glow when exposed to sunlight or UV light. It comes in two colors and a number of materials, so you can use multiple Gaslights to segregate, organize, and identify your gear immediately on sight. And thanks to its size, the Gaslight take up much space or weigh down your gear, so it's no hassle adding one to the rest of your EDC.

Stop second-guessing and grab the gear you need at a glance. Pledge for a Gaslight in your choice of exotic and rugged materials at the Kickstarter link below.

Leatherman Wave

If there's one tried-and-true multi-tool to round out your everyday carry, it'd be the Leatherman Wave. Hundreds of EDCers carry one and swear by it. And since its debut, the Wave set the standard for full-sized multi-tools with its enduring, butterfly-style design. It packs a whole lot of tools into the Wave's heavy-duty frame, letting you carry a toolbox's worth of functions without weighing you down. Even better, the Wave lets you get to its important functions quickly and easily, making it one of the handiest tools to have within arm's reach.

There's no job you can't do with the Wave's 17 functions. Front and center are the Wave's signature pliers, which lets you use needle-nose, regular grooves, and even wire cutters in the same design. Within its “wings” are a pair of 420HC locking blades, both of which can be deployed one-handed and plain or serrated depending on your needs. These blades lie alongside a saw and double-sided file for extra cutting and finishing power.

At the end of the Wave's handles are the rest of its fold-out tools, which include a variety of drivers, openers, and even a pair of spring-action scissors to cover all your bases. Even with all this functionality and hardy construction, Leatherman stands by their flagship multitool with a 25-year warranty, making sure you're never without an effective everyday carry.

Carry the one tool you need to get the job done. Pick up Leatherman's iconic multitool as a gift or for yourself at the link below.

Nodus Compact Wallet

While they're perfectly designed for slipping into your front pocket, the thing with cardholders is they can often be too restricting. You can slip four, maybe six cards into it, and that's that. But what about the rest of your cards, and cash, or even a spare key? Nodus's Compact Wallet has you covered — it crams the capacity of a billfold (and then some) into a super slim profile worthy of your front pocket.

The Compact packs one of the best features for any EDC wallet—quick access—but doesn't stop at just one or two frequently used cards. Its outer pull tab lets you cascade out up to 8 cards for nimble access and easy organization with full RFID blocking protection. On the other side, you'll find two more quick-access slots for your go-to cards at the register. With the right card configuration, you'll have both privacy and contactless entry/payment options all in the same wallet.

A central pocket accommodates everything else, from cash to business cards. And in that main compartment, there's a smaller slot for a spare key to use as either a backup option or for a minimalist carry.

The Compact Wallet (along with Nodus's other offerings, the Hifold Wallet and Compact 4 Card Wallet) comes in new leathers for the season. Nodus uses full-grain, veg-tan Italian leather that's been sustainably and ethically sourced.

Best of all, Nodus is offering 25% off the wallets and the option to donate that 25% to disaster relief charity ShelterBox if you choose to pay full price. Check out the Compact Wallet and more Nodus wallets at their shop below.

SureFire P2X Fury Intellibeam

When darkness falls, you'll want a light that's easy to use in any situation. And while modern flashlights give you a ton of options for controlling brightness, the last thing you want is to blind yourself from accidentally activating it on its max setting. SureFire's new P2X Fury automatically adjusts its brightness to your needs the moment you turn it on thanks to its unique Intellibeam technology, making it an excellent everyday light to have handy at a moment's notice.

The Intellibeam system takes the P2X's 15 to 600-lumen range and adjusts its output to match your environment. An intelligent sensor and microprocessor in the light continuously scopes out your surroundings, and with a single click of its tail switch delivers just the brightness you need. Thanks to this system, the P2X will never activate on full power when you're in close quarters, and even saves you time fiddling with the light's interface to get to a suitable brightness when in use.

Sometimes, however, you still need those 600 lumens at your immediate disposal. The P2X grants you quick access to full brightness with a quick double-click of its switch. Paired with its smooth reflector, you get a powerful beam with a bright hotspot and plenty of throw to light up your area. The light is also plenty rugged for all situations thanks to a high-strength aerospace aluminum body with mil-spec hard anodization and a weatherproofed interior sealed with O-rings and gaskets.

Time to get smart with your EDC light. Pick up the P2X Fury with Intellibeam tech direct from SureFire at the link below.
