Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

Most EDC multi-tools include a blade or two, but they often feel like an afterthought in use. The assumption is that you're going to use the other functions more than the knife. This just doesn't cut it if you rely on a full-size knife to get things done on a regular basis. Plus, having to carry a dedicated multi-tool along with a knife can clutter your carry and weigh down your pockets. But with the new Spyderco ClipiTool Standard folder tool, Spyderco pairs their renowned blade technology with the convenience and utility of having a multi-tool on hand.

Although the ClipiTool could be considered a multi-tool, the blade on it is no joke. It's a full-size 3.5” 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade in a useful leaf shape with a razor sharp full-flat grind. A liner lock keeps this knife in place, giving you the confidence to tackle large tasks with it. It's a big knife that's ready for big tasks, but the other tools involved make the ClipiTool Standard shine. It features a bottle and can opener, two hollow-ground screwdrivers, and a wire stripper. All of these tools swing out easily with Spyderco's hallmark large thumbhole design. They also feature stops at 90 degrees so you can leverage the handle when manipulating screws. And it helps that the handle is covered in super-grippy G10 scaling for added control, even when wet.

With the ClipiTool Standard, you have both a multi-tool with a real blade and a knife that can do more than cut. It's a great way to consolidate your carry while having the essentials on hand when the situation demands. Check it out at the link below.

Spyderco Lil' Native

It's one thing to EDC a knife that's easy on the eyes, but it's even better if its stylish design feels good in your hand, too. Blending function and form is one tricky balancing act that Spyderco gets right time and again. Their new Lil' Native takes one of their crowd-favorite EDC designs, the Native, and scales down the proportions while keeping its signature Spydero ergonomics at the forefront. Despite its smaller size, the Lil' Native represents a complete package for EDC, mixing gent's knife styling and practical upgrades to boot.

In the case of the Lil' Native, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree: its overall silhouette and ergonomic shape that made the Native great haven't drastically changed. Its thick, leaf-shaped S30V steel blade still features a large thumbhole for deployment and finger choil for added control. This time around the blade measures 2.5” long overall, with about a 2” usable cutting edge. The slight curve on the blade makes that 2” feel longer in practice, which also ends in a defined tip for precise piercing. The blade's full flat grind makes it excellent for slicing and general EDC tasks, too.

Unlike its bigger brothers, the Lil' Native foregoes the lockback mechanism for Spyderco's high-strength compression lock on the back of the handle. The G10 scales keep the knife lightweight at just 2.5 oz and complement the handle's 4-finger grip ergonomics with added texture. Lastly, the Lil' Native opts for a sleeker, ambidextrous wire pocket clip for easy carry. For a more modern and EDC-friendly version of a classic knife, pick up the Lil' Native at the link below.

Spyderco Squarehead Lightweight

When space is at an absolute premium, or your situation demands something smaller than a traditional compact EDC knife, you need something special. You need an extremely small and discreet EDC knife that can cut beyond its size. The Spyderco Squarehead Lightweight is just that. It fits a sharp and capable folding knife into a frame that's only slightly larger than a quarter.

The Squarehead Lightweight is an update to a collaboration design originally made by custom knife maker Daniel Caston that makes the knife both more affordable and more practical for EDC. Like the original, you get a tiny folding knife in a discreet card-shaped handle that measures 2.23” closed. Unlike the original, which featured a smooth titanium handle, the Lightweight features grippy textured FRN scaling. But true to its name, the Squarehead Lightweight comes in at only 1.2 ounces on the scales. That makes it perfect for neck carry, especially with the lanyard hole on the frame. It works well for for barely-there pocket carry as well.

The Squarehead Lightweight features a 1.3” sheepsfoot blade that's perfect for utility cutting work. The blade itself is made of American CTS-BD1 stainless steel. It's strong and corrosion resistant, but it's also easy to sharpen. That ease is important because the blade features a single-sided chisel grind that's similar to what you find in Japanese cooking knives which would otherwise be harder to maintain. Because of its unique design, the blade nests evenly with the frame of the knife when closed. Spyderco's signature thumbhole makes for easy deployment, and a stainless steel liner lock holds the blade in place during use.

It's hard to find a folding knife as small as the Squarehead Lightweight that’ll come in handy for EDC whether it’s as a backup or as an ultra-discreet primary blade. Check it out at the link below.
