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.

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.

Ridge Wallet Titanium

Your EDC should help you stay ready for anything, but that’s hard to do if you've got a bulky wallet taking up valuable pocket space. That’s why so many are turning to slimmer cardholder wallets to make room for other useful gear, but even those aren't always as convenient as they claim to be. Thankfully there’s the Titanium Ridge Wallet which has a build tough enough for EDC while offering some extra security for your cards. All in a body as thin as a few credit cards.

Like all great cardholder wallets the Ridge Wallet is super thin measuring in at only 6mm. To get this slim, materials and construction are key. Two pieces of thin titanium—sought after by EDCers for its impressive strength to weight ratio and unique handfeel—are held together by T5 stainless steel screws and elastic bands. This modular plate construction makes it easy to expand should you need to carry more than a few cards (it can hold up to 12 at max capacity).

A finger notch along makes it easy to push out the cards inside, giving you easy access to the one you want without forcing you to take them all out of the wallet. Besides being tough enough to run over with a car, the wallet also comes with two aluminum RFID-blocking plates built in to protect your cards against wireless theft.

Of course the purpose of a good wallet is to hold currency, not only plastic cards. Which is why the Ridge Wallet also comes with two ways to carry cash. One is an elastic cash strap that not only maintains the thin profile of the wallet, but also has rubber gripping along the inside to prevent your cash from slipping out. If that’s not your style you can always opt for the money clip variation that keeps your hard-earned cash pinned securely against the wallet until you need it.

Whether you’re looking to slim down your wallet so you can carry more stuff or want an upgrade that protects you from modern ne'er-do-wells, the Ridge Wallet has you covered. This version's lightweight titanium construction that EDCers love is just the cherry on top. Make sure to click the link below to add this wallet to your pocket.
