Titanium

Ontario Carter 2quared

A big job calls for a big knife. And with so many EDC knives on the smaller side, sometimes they just don't cut it. When you're looking for a bigger knife, there's more to consider than just the length of the blade. A comfortable and easy to control handle and solid construction all around are key factors, just to name a few. The new Carter 2quared from Ontario Knife Company delivers that and more. It's a robust folding EDC knife designed to help you tackle the big tasks with ease.

With one look at this knife, you can tell that it's made for hard use. This collaboration design from Robert Carter looks beefy, even overbuilt. With its titanium handle and secure frame lock, it's ready for what you can throw at it. At 4.83" long, the handle will fit your whole hand, and its ergonomic design gives you superior control. The handle also features a large finger choil in the grip, which helps guard you from cutting yourself on your own knife during hard use. 

With that, you can leverage its 3.5" hollow ground D2 sheepsfoot blade for general utility tasks and its defined tip for poking and piercing. Unlike most sheepsfoot blades, the one on the Carter 2quared has a bit of a curved belly which helps with slicing tasks. Its top swedge also helps you maneuver it through tough material with ease. With its low-index flipper tab at the spine, deployment of that blade is as easy as a flick of your finger. And when your job is done, its low profile clip lets you store it tip-up in your pockets.

With the OKC Carter 2quared in hand, you can have the confidence to take on your larger daily tasks with ease. Pick it up at the link below, and get to work.

StatGear X-GRIP Tweezers

A good pair of tweezers is one of those items that can be unexpectedly useful to EDC. You usually see them in first aid kits or tacked onto a multi-tool, and often as an afterthought. But you'll also find plenty of everyday situations where you wish you had a proper pair of tweezers. Whether you're extracting a nasty splinter or needing that extra precision on your DIY project, an EDC-worthy set of tweezers is just the right tool. With the X-GRIP, StatGear offers tweezers that are both built to last and easy to carry.

Because they're made of grade 5 titanium, the X-GRIP tweezers are superior to the flimsy pair you might find included in a first aid kit. They're strong and resistant against the elements, making them a piece of gear that will last you as long as you have them. At approximately 2.4 inches long, they're sized right for most tasks without being too bulky. They're also lightweight, weighing a mere 0.4 ounces including the aluminum cap. That cap features an eyehole for attaching the tweezers to your keys too, so they're easy to have on hand at all times.

With the StatGear X-GRIP, you can have a competent pair of tweezers on hand when you need it. StatGear has a long history of delivering excellent EDC gear on a crowdfunded basis. And the best part is pledging to this fully funded Kickstarter project will also get you the handy PocketLumen EDC flashlight as well. Check it out at the link below.

Victorinox I.N.O.X. Titanium Watch

Even with all their moving parts and intricate components, analog watches don't have to be fussy or fragile. Victorinox proves that with their adventure-ready I.N.O.X. line of watches. While this relatively new collection started with models built from its namesake I.N.O.X. steel, the line has expanded with timepieces sporting new, durable materials like titanium and paracord. The I.N.O.X. Titanium comes as a sand-blasted, EDC-ready option with a case made from lightweight titanium alloy. It's got the rugged spirit and classic analog style we've seen from past I.N.O.X. watches in a new design that won't weigh you down.

Despite its stylish looks, it’s durability and functionality at the core of an I.N.O.X. watch's design. To meet such high durability standards, Victorinox puts I.N.O.X. watches through the wringer, testing to ensure each watch can withstand the most extreme conditions. That includes drop tests onto concrete, freezing it solid, and blasting it with corrosive liquids, to name a few. It's a rigorous process, but it's all with the goal to create a watch that's tough enough for EDC and then some.

Pound for pound, titanium outperforms stainless steel in strength tests. The I.N.O.X. Titanium takes advantage of the material’s strength to weight ratio, achieving next-level durability while dramatically reducing weight. The matte finish coupled with titanium’s natural grey-green hue results in a unique looking watch that evokes the low-light finish of military time pieces. The triple-AR coated sapphire crystal offers scratch-resistant clarity, which protects the matte finish dial.

This model features a dark green dial with a red seconds hand, white indices, and silver accents. The green dial paired with the brown leather strap (it’s the same hard-wearing leather they use to make boots for firefighters) give off a military camouflage vibe without looking too tactical. As a unique design detail, the I.N.O.X. Titanium features a 24-hour time scale printed directly onto the inside of the crystal. These 13-24 hour markings make it easy to read military time and add visual depth to the dial. Lastly, there's a contrasting white date display between the 4 and 5 hour markers.

Inside, you’ll find a durable and accurate Swiss quartz movement. While many EDCers would appreciate an automatic movement in the watch, Victorinox opted for a movement certain to be able to handle the shock, temperature, and high durability standards set by the I.N.O.X. line. It's set inside a screw-down steel caseback that helps give the watch its 660ft water resistance rating.

Measuring in at 43mm the I.N.O.X. has plenty of wrist presence, yet despite its larger size, it doesn’t wear like a heavy, clunky watch. Since the case is made from titanium, the watch is remarkably light weight at only 3.3oz. Titanium is also a hypo-allergenic material, making the I.N.O.X. Titanium great for those with metal allergies as well.

If you like a large, adventure-ready watch that’s sure to hold up to anything you can throw at it, consider adding the I.N.O.X. Titanium to your collection. It comes with a compass bezel bumper for protection against scratches and a handsome presentation box. The watch is also available with black or grey dials with a variety of different strap options. You can browse them all at the link below.

WESN Titanium Micro Blade

When space is at a premium in your EDC, you might end up leaving your favorite knife at home. Even some smaller everyday carry knife options can be either too big for what you need, or other times, even too small to be anything more than a novelty. What you need is an extremely compact EDC knife that can actually perform. The WESN Titanium Micro Blade is a fully funded Kickstarter project that aims to be just that, designed with a strong set of features you'd expect from a knife twice its size.

The WESN Titanium Micro Blade is an incredibly tiny EDC folding knife that looks built for real use. The excellent utility of the knife starts with its 1.5” AUS8 stainless steel blade. It has a modified drop point shape with a pronounced curve that increases the surface area of the knife and helps it deal with tasks easily, like a larger knife could. The AUS8 composition allows for an ideal mix of sharpness, edge retention, and ease of maintenance. Deployment is also easy thanks to two opening mechanisms: a thumbstud on the blade and a flipper tab on the spine.

Its grade 5 titanium handle helps bring the weight of the knife down to just a single ounce for barely-there pocket or keychain carry. The resilient, springy characteristic of titanium also improves performance of the WESN's frame lock mechanism, which you usually don't see on a knife of this size. On the side is a deep carry pocket clip designed for right-handed carry. Because the knife is only 2.25” when closed, the clip can also double as an effective cash clip for your bills. The hole at the other end of the handle can accommodate lanyard or keychain carry as well. There's even a beautiful leather sheath available for the knife at higher pledges.

It's not often you can look at a tiny EDC knife that inspires confidence in its ability to work for you. The WESN does just that. Make your pledge to the fully-funded Kickstarter to secure a WESN Titanium Micro Blade of your own.
