SOG Twitch II Rosewood

Despite the original Twitch II’s popularity as an EDC knife over the years—with its compact design and convenient assisted opening—it wasn’t suited for more formal occasions. SOG, known for their tactical gear, gave the Twitch II a makeover that’s more in line with a gent’s aesthetic on the Rosewood model.

A simple change of the handle from aluminum to rosewood takes the knife from tactical to dressy, resulting in an EDC that’s less likely to draw unwanted attention when you pull it out. And while the new handle looks good, it isn’t just for aesthetics. The woodgrain texture provides a better grip than the smooth aluminum handles on the original.

The Twitch II Rosewood keeps the same one-handed, assisted flipper operation and satin-finished, AUS 8 drop-point blade that earned the Twitch II a spot in many EDCs. The sub-3” blade length makes it not only less threatening , but also an ideal size for your daily tasks. If a classy gent’s carry is more your style, the rosewood refresh of this popular knife is worth a second look—grab it at the link below.

Victorinox EvoWood 17 Review

Review

The Swiss Army Knife (SAK) is one of the most iconic multi-tools in the world, and for good reason. Found in toolboxes, pockets, and glove compartments everywhere, the SAK is available in dozens of configurations with different tools, shapes, sizes, and designs. We reached out to the leading SAK manufacturer, Victorinox, to try something new from their lineup that we thought you guys would enjoy. They graciously sent us a sample of their EvoWood 17 to consider. It stands apart from the usual candy red Swiss Army Knives with its genuine walnut hardwood scales, while boasting 9 tools capable of 13 different features in one 85mm package. Read on to find out how the EvoWood 17 held up in our EDC.

Love the site. I check it out daily. Here is my EDC:

Sunwayman V10R Ti Flashlight - This is a great little light. It has variable brightness from 1-210 lumen. I also have the AA extender so it can use AA or CR123A. It is tough, light and looks great.
Saddleback Leather Wallet Sleeve - I am always on the lookout for a slim wallet and have gone through quite a few and this is my favorite so far. The leather quality is fantastic...
