StatGear Ausus Pocket Knife

For most budget knives on the market, you get what you pay for. And while they're usually fine for light tasks, they don't exactly inspire confidence when taking on real hard use. The few that do, however, tend to be fixed blades or designs that are just too bulky in general for EDC. StatGear's Ausus pocket knife aims to buck the trend as their latest Kickstarter project set to deliver this December. It's an overbuilt folding knife with the premium materials and EDC-focused features to match at a solidly affordable price point.

The hard use potential of the Ausus begins with its 3.5" D2 steel blade. D2 is a tool steel that's high in both carbon and chromium, giving the blade excellent sharpness, hardness, and edge retention even after frequent hard use. While the Ausus was designed with large tasks in mind, it features jimping on the top of the blade for added control during precision work. Deployment of the blade is easy with its oversized, ambidextrous thumbstuds and internal ball bearings.

The Ausus's large 4.5" handle lets you get a solid, full-handed grip on the knife for when the task at hand requires a little elbow grease. The knife comes equipped with a liner lock, which also adds some proportional thickness to the handle to let it stand up to batoning and other more extreme situations. The canvas micarta handles will stand up to rough and regular use, plus they provide excellent grip even when wet. Micarta doesn't just lend durability and grip, it also gives the knife a more elegant and luxurious look as it's a material traditionally used on classic gent's knives.

Despite the Ausus's size and beefier design, it isn't a problem for your pockets. It's mostly thanks to its extremely deep-carrying pocket clip design. It allows for sleek low-profile reversible tip-up carry to make the knife practically disappear in the pocket.

The Ausus is available in two different colorways: full-black with an oxide blade and brown with a satin finish. With its rock-solid yet elegant design, you might think the Ausus would cost you a pretty penny, but that's not the case. A pledge of 43 dollars or less to its fully-funded Kickstarter can secure you one of your own. Back the project at the link below.

StatGear BitzBlade 2.0

With limited pocket space, you have to be able to justify the size and weight of everything you EDC. And while it would be nice to be able to carry dedicated tools for every task you will encounter, it's not realistic. What you need is a solid, compact EDC multi-tool that you can actually use to get the job done. The upcoming and fully funded BitzBlade 2.0 on Kickstarter aims to fill that role. It's a feature-packed multi-tool that takes the place of a large tool set, all while fitting in your pockets.

The thoughtful design of the BitzBlade 2.0 lets you pare down your EDC to the essentials. The highlight is its three major interchangeable modules. The first is a knife blade. Unlike the knives found in most multitools, the one on the BitzBlade 2.0 is not at all an afterthought. It's made out of 440C stainless steel, which is excellent for edge sharpness and retention. The second is a dedicated utility box cutter and scraper blade. That's made to tackle more regular use, and its 440 stainless steel is easier to sharpen too. And then it has a combination pry bar, hex wrench, and bottle opener.

On one end of the tool, there's a small LED flashlight powered by watch batteries. On the other end, there's a tungsten carbide glass breaker tip that's good to have in an emergency. Reverse that and you'll find the slot to carry standard screwdriver bits, with some Torx and hex bits as well. And because it's machined out of aircraft-grade aluminum, the BitzBlade 2.0 should stand up to hard use. Its sturdy build and pen-like shape allow it to be used as a kubotan in a self-defense situation as well.

StatGear claim the BitzBlade 2.0 will be the last multi-tool you'll need. With their proven track record of delivering high quality EDC gear like the TriTac pen and Pocket Samurai knife, that might just be the case. Consolidate your gear and secure a BitzBlade 2.0 for yourself 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.

Pocket Samurai

There are tons of options to choose from for knives, but really, the best one is the one you have on you at all times. This makes compact blades that have carry-friendly features like a clip or lanyard hole ideal for everyday carry. The Pocket Samurai from StatGear out of Brooklyn takes the popular higonokami style of Japanese knife and adds some much-needed features that make it a great daily slicer.

For starters, it replaces the friction folding action of the standard higonokami design with a thumbstud and integrated framelock built into its lightweight grade 5 titanium handles, letting you actually lock the knife. You can deal with everyday cutting and piercing tasks thanks to its 2-inch tanto edge made from high-carbon 440C stainless steel.

And unlike a traditional higo, the Pocket Samurai features both a pocket/money clip and keyring loop to make it much easier to carry. With its 2.66-inch closed length and weighing under an ounce, it can live right on your keychain.

The Pocket Samurai has already met its crowdfunding goal, and there's still time to back one for yourself at the Indiegogo link below.
