Trending: SOG Snarl Neck Knife

The SOG Snarl is a neck knife that’s a good option for a backup blade in your kit, but it’s also functional and ergonomic knife on its own. Designed by custom knifemaker Jason Brous and based on his Silent Soldier design, this blade features great hand feel as well as his signature aesthetics. It’s made from corrosion-resistant 9Cr18MoV stainless steel, and features a wharncliffe-style blade that’s chisel ground for easy maintenance. The 2.3" edge dominates most of this 4.3" long knife, but you’re not left with too little to hold on to, as two large finger holes plus jimping on the spine give you a solid and comfortable grip during use. There are extra holes and cutouts on the blade, lightening it and keeping it a svelte and neck-pleasing 1.9 ounces. The SOG Snarl also comes ready for deployment with its own molded Kydex sheath and neck chain, giving you immediate access to a useful blade right out of the box.

Aviator Slide Wallet

Ditching an old, bulky back-pocket bifold wallet is usually at the front of your mind when you’re starting to upgrade your EDC essentials. But making the leap to a more minimalist front-pocket wallet can be harder than you might think. For starters, the sheer amount of options you have to consider are legion. And even more troublesome is the fact that most slim wallet designs actually sacrifice more than carrying capacity: they’re just plain hard to use every day. But from every difficult situation often comes innovation. Take the newly-updated Aviator Slide wallet, for example, which gives you a practical wallet that’s slim and sleek, and with the ergonomics that make it a joy to use, and not a hassle.

The new Aviator Slide adds a convenient pull-tab to their handy card slide design. This lets you pull and fan out up to 20 standard-sized payment and identification cards without having to fumble around. And unlike with other wallets, the metal panel design sandwiched together with a secure elastic strap (that doubles as a cash holder) ensures that none of your cards fall out accidentally. There’s even a dedicated compartment for coins for added convenience.

Another thing that sets the Aviator Slide apart is its immense customizability. There 650 different options available for you to pick from when you customize your own design to suit your needs. For example, you can pick the material of your choice when it comes to the core of the wallet, with options available for aircraft-grade aluminum, titanium, and lightweight carbon fiber. With any choice, however, you benefit from quality German engineering and handmade precision manufacturing, giving you a highly-personalized wallet that’s as aesthetic and luxurious as it is practical in daily use.

With such a rich feature set paired with a beautiful design, and Aviator’s commitment to craftsmanship with a lifetime warranty, the Slide makes a strong and unique contender for your next EDC wallet. Click the link below to customize your own Aviator Slide, and you can enjoy free shipping worldwide as an added bonus.

RovyVon Angel Eyes E200U

RovyVon Angel Eyes E200U

With COVID-19 still at large, more than ever it’s important to pay attention to the gear we use and how they interact with our surroundings. In addition to social distancing and proper hand washing, adding a few tweaks to your EDC can help keep yourself and others safer and more hygienic. Take for example the RovyVon Angel Eyes E200U, a versatile light that packs the powerful output, long-lasting battery life, and quick charging time normally associated with bigger lights, plus an essential sanitizing output useful during our “new normal” situation.

When looking at the E200U, you’ll notice more than the usual amount of buttons and emitters. On one end of the light sits two CREE XP-G3 front emitters that pump out up to 1,650 lumens on High, operated by the primary button that sits on the flat side of the body, making it easy to find and access. A long press of the button gives you immediate access to a non-indexed ramping mode, letting you find the exact amount of illumination for your needs. Double-clicking accesses the light’s last used mode. Clicking from there cycles you through the four output levels: a 10-lumen Low that can run up to 24 hours, a 150-lumen Medium that runs for 8, a 700-lumen High that runs for 4, and an LED-pushing 1,650-lumen Turbo. An emergency SOS mode is accessed by pressing the same button three times. From any mode, a single press turns the light off. To prevent unwanted activation and to preserve your battery life, the primary button is designed to sit flush within its casing.

What makes the E200U different from most lights are the 3 LEDs that produce both UV-A and UV-C light. Located on the body of the light below the primary power button, it’s protected by a quartz window to allow the maximum transmission of UV light. In today’s circumstances and for use both as a detector and eliminator of harmful substances and microbes, UV light is becoming more sought after, especially the 270nm UV-C light which has been proven to be 99.9% effective at killing or inactivating harmful microorganisms, a function also shared by RovyVon’s earlier model, the E700U. The side lights are operated by the secondary button on the side of the light: a double-click or long press turns them on, while a single click turns them off. Triple-clicking the same side button also provides a quick way to access the light’s 1-lumen Moonlight mode which can run as long as 135 hours straight. Same as the primary button, the side button sits flush to prevent accidental activation in your pocket.

For fuel, the E200U uses a fast-charging USB-C port on its side. Rated at 5V and 2.4A, it lets you top up the internal rechargeable 1,400mAh lithium-polymer battery in as little as an hour. A quick press of the primary button lets you check you battery status via the four small battery indicator lights right beside it. The 25%-increment markers give you a clearer and easier way to check how much juice you have left.

All these features are housed in a 3.14" x 1.33" x 0.68" aluminum alloy body that keeps the weight down to 2.89 ounces. The chassis has grooves on the sides to help with grip and for some tactile feedback, while the bottom features a strong magnet that lets you hang the E200U on a metal surface for hands-free use. Also cut into the bottom are a lanyard hole and a tripod hole, offering more ways to handle, bring, and mount this light. Lastly, a removable and reversible pocket clip gives you a way to carry this versatile multi-function light in your pants pocket, inside your pack, or on a hat brim.

Packing this much power and functionality in such a small package makes the RovyVon Angel Eyes E200U a solid option for do-it-all EDC light. The substance-detecting and germ-killing features of its side lights also make it relevant for the current world situation. If you want a compact, yet powerful light that immediately upgrades your preparedness, this is a good way to go. Check it out at the link below.

Trending: CW&T Pen Type-B

Trending: CW&T Pen Type-B

The CW&T Pen Type-B sports a simple, logo-less, and minimalist design that belies the high level of thought and execution behind its conception. Its cap is held in place by an N52 Neodymium magnet that covers most of the length of its 4.9" body, preventing unwanted removal and loss. Precision machining with tight tolerances turn the pen into an air piston as it smoothly glides in or out of its cap: as you replace the cap into the closed or open position, micro-perforations machined into the pen body control the air flowing out, prevent you from slamming the cap onto the pen tip and preventing trapped air pressure from popping the main body of the pen out. The cigar-shaped cap also features a machined flat surface on one side that prevents the pen from rolling off your desk. The CW&T Pen Type-B measures 5.4" capped and 5.7" posted, and takes the smooth writing Pilot Hi-Tec-C gel ink refill. You have four choices for the cap and body combination: the machined Brass cap pairs with a stainless steel body, while the Titanium Matte, Titanium Polished, and Black Cerakote-treated titanium caps are matched with titanium bodies for a premium and lightweight build. Check out all the options at the link below.

Tactile Turn Side Click

Just about everyone loves a good clicky ballpoint pen for everyday carry. Aside from its practicality, the click mechanism represents a bit of fidgety fun you can have as you go about your business. But while you’re sure to be familiar with the standard rear-click pen, you might find it interesting to know that side click pen mechanisms exist too. With these great EDC pens, the side placement of the click mechanism makes for easy actuation without having to completely change your grip on the pen. The new Tactile Turn Side Click Pen features an ultra-snappy all-metal side click pen design that’s entirely made in Texas, making it a sleek, solid new addition to your stationery EDC.

Like all of Tactile Turn’s line of everyday carry pens, the Side Click maintains the elegant, simple, and sleek minimal lines that the brand and chief designer Will Hodges is known for. Similar to their highly-successful Bolt Action Pen, the Side Click actuates as it sounds, via a click mechanism on its side. Unlike off-the-shelf click mechanisms though, the Side Click’s is made entirely of metal, giving it a satisfying snappiness in click response when deploying the pen. Like the internals the exterior of the pen is made of metal, and it’s available in three premium materials: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium.

It’s also available in the length of your choice, from the standard 5.8 inch long model all the way down to a smaller 4.6 inch everyday carry mini note taker. If you’re looking to add a unique touch of flair, you can get the clip upgraded to a snazzy titanium Damascus attached to the body with two Torx screws for a secure fit. Custom engraving available on either side of the pen allows you to make it your own. And as far as actual use for writing, the addictive click mechanism and the wide variety of compatible ink cartridges makes the Side Click a joy to use.

The high-quality innovative Side Click is more than your next daily driver EDC pen, it’s built to last and passed on to the future. But while you have it in your hands, you’ll have a blast writing with it and fidgeting with the side click mechanism for years to come. Check out more details about what makes the Tactile Turn Side Click pen so unique and well-suited for your own set of everyday carry gear and buy one today at the link below.
