What Makes an EDC Knife Good for Food Prep?

There’s no shortage of uses for your EDC knife. Sometimes, you'll need it to pull food prep duty when you’re out and about, whereas at home you’d probably just grab something from the kitchen drawer. Sure, your EDC knife can slice up an apple, cut a sandwich, and open up a stubborn bag of chips, but a specialized tool is better for the job. Think about it: you wouldn’t use a 2” tanto blade for peeling and slicing up a piece of fruit. The same goes for in the kitchen. There are many different knife types that are designed for specific tasks — and for good reason. In this guide, we’ll show you what to look for in an EDC blade that makes it great for food prep and then compare it to their kitchen counterparts that take it to the next level.

Victorinox I.N.O.X. Carbon Watch

If you want an EDC watch that's practically indestructible but still light on your wrist, you'd usually look at digital watches. But those aren't for everyone, especially if you're after a more classic look. Few everyday carry brands do classics like Victorinox, whose iconic Swiss Army Knives have been EDC staples for decades. While its 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 latest entry in the lineup, the I.N.O.X. Carbon, comes as a blacked-out, EDC-ready option with a case made from carbon fiber resin. It's got the rugged spirit and classic style we've seen from past I.N.O.X. watches in a new design that won't weigh you down.

Materials play a huge role for any piece of EDC gear's durability. The I.N.O.X. Carbon's unique carbon fiber resin not only dramatically reduces weight, but also creates a visually striking textured appearance that's actually smooth to the touch. Its lustrous, triple-AR coated sapphire crystal offers scratch-resistant clarity, juxtaposed by the case's satin finish to really make the watch face pop. As a unique design detail, the I.N.O.X. Carbon 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 carbon fiber, the watch is remarkably light weight. Paired with the soft and flexible Naimakka paracord strap, the I.N.O.X. Carbon is way more comfortable for daily wear than you would assume by looking at the specs, even on smaller wrists.

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. Carbon to your collection. It comes with an additional strap and a compass bezel bumper in its own diver-style storage case, too. You can pick up a Victorinox I.N.O.X. Carbon at the link below.

The Best Swiss Army Knife for EDC

EDC is all about having the right tool for the job. Multi-tools take that a step further by putting the right tool for a number of different tasks into one compact body. When it comes to keeping your bases covered, one of the most trusted brands of multi-tools is Victorinox, thanks in no small part to their Swiss Army Knife becoming an essential tool to carry since it was invented for the field in 1897. And in the past century Victorinox has only gotten better at what they do, now offering plenty of different variations of the tried and true tool.

If you've never owned a Swiss Army Knife (SAK), picking your first one out of Victorinox's extensive catalog can be daunting at first. Many of the models have specialized tools for specific uses, but they all share a common core of tools for general EDC. To make the decision easier, we're highlighting the 5 most-carried SAKs among our readers in this guide. As we'll be comparing tried-and-true models, you can't go wrong with any of the picks below.

Victorinox Altmont 3.0 Deluxe Laptop Backpack

A good EDC backpack to help lighten the load can go a long way. With so many options out there, finding a bag with the perfect balance between a smart design, good organization, and a durable build can be difficult. Thankfully the Almont Classic Collection of bags by Victorinox offers plenty of options ideal for EDC. One option in particular is the Deluxe Laptop backpack, which strikes a solid balance between having a sturdy build, organization, and a sleek design while also adding some extra functionality to your carry.

When it comes to keeping your gear organized, this bag gives you plenty of options without overdoing it. The polyester exterior might look super minimal at first glance but upon further inspection you’ll find two hidden front pockets that open from either side, perfect for any items that you might need to get to in a hurry. Plus, whether you’re headed to class or hitting the trails two more zippered pockets on either side of the bag can easily fit water bottles and other beverages. One of them even carries the Swiss Army Knife multi-tool bottle opener and screwdriver that might come in handy in a pinch. And that’s just the exterior.

Opening this 21L pack reveals a slew of sleeves, pockets, and slots so you can hold everything from a few textbooks to pens and pencils (and still have room to spare for snacks in case you get hungry). A dedicated tablet sleeve lines the back of the main compartment and a separate side-loading zippered pocket along the back gives you easy access to your laptop.

Typically filling up a backpack to the max can put a strain on your back, but the Deluxe Laptop backpack distributes the weight evenly thanks to adjustable padded straps and a design meant for carrying heavy loads comfortably. If you’re looking to tidy up your carry with a bag that was designed for everyday use, make sure to check this one out in Navy or Olive Green via the link below.
