Sharp Bros Seven Sins Automatic Watch

If you carry a sharp knife and have an eye for sharp looks, you’ll appreciate a watch that cuts a striking appearance as part of your everyday carry. Take the new Seven Sins automatic watch from the appropriately-named Sharp Bros, for example. The Seven Sins is a bold, precision-crafted ode to the automatic knife, with a quality mechanical automatic watch movement at its heart and a great switchblade design at the center of its unique look. As the watch’s name itself implies, it’ll be your source of pride and the envy of others when they see it on your wrist.

Sharp Bros made it their mission to build high quality watches that aren’t just your run of the mill timepiece: they’re works of art with a striking aesthetic that makes a statement. And they pride themselves on their craftsmanship, sparing nothing on the design of their flagship Seven Sins watch. Its beating heart is a precision Seiko NH35 automatic mechanical watch movement that features 24 jewels and a 41-hour max power reserve. As an automatic movement, it gets the energy it needs to keep on ticking by the simple act of being worn everyday, and with its unique bold looks that’s easy to see happening. The face of the watch is deep black, and the watch hands are represented by the handle and blade of a switchblade dagger. Other aesthetic details like its contrasting red sweeping seconds hand and high legibility hour markers make it easy  to tell the time at a glance.

All of the time-keeping indicators feature Lumibrite accents for low-light readability and a bit of flair when the night is young. But the extra bit of embellishment that makes the watch (and gives this unique timepiece its name) is the decorative window that shifts between the proverbial seven deadly sins as you go about wearing it. The 316L stainless steel case is highly durable, and so is the sapphire crystal which will stand up to the bumps and scratches of everyday life. Its 42mm case size offers ample wrist presence, and the lugs have a width of 22 millimeters. If you like the diver aesthetic you can wear it with the metal bracelet, and Sharp Bros includes all you need to tailor the length of it to your wrist. If you prefer to wear it with a NATO or Zulu strap however, they also provide you with one and the ability to attach your own preferred strap as well.

Whether you’re naughty or nice (probably a bit more naughty, though), the Sharp Bros Seven Sins automatic watch is a bold watch worthy of your EDC consideration. Especially if you love carrying an automatic knife, its switchblade-inspired looks are a perfect accompaniment to your ensemble. And for a limited time, you can use code 'EDC20' to save 20% on your purchase of this watch on the Sharp Bros website at the link below.

Bluffworks Packing Cubes

Bluffworks Packing Cubes

A packing cube is one of the most convenient items you can take with you when you travel, whether for short trips or extended vacations away from home. Bluffworks has innovated on the design of the everyday packing cube with the ability to compress to the size that you need so that it’s always “just right.” And with its transparent window you can always see what’s inside without having to unpack completely. It’s the best way to dial in your packing perfectly, just like the rest of your EDC.

If you’re not familiar with what they do, the idea is simple: they allow you to organize what you pack into a bag so things like clothes and other small items don’t lie loose inside making it hard for you to find what you need when you get to your destination. But that simplicity can be a downside too: if your packing needs fall between sizes, you’ll have to mix and match, which isn’t always the best option. The cinching strap built into the Bluffworks Packing Cube makes it unique in the market. You can either use the whole capacity of the cube or you can cinch things down and compress it to a much more compact size suitable for the gear you place inside.

There are two sizes to start from: a large 10.5 liter bag for bigger items like shirts and pants, and a smaller 3.9 liter that’s great for intimates and toiletries. There’s also two models available for the bags: a Pro design that integrates more structure into the design, and a more unstructured Sport that increases packing capacity. Both options are made out of lightweight and durable ripstop nylon polyester, and they’ll stand up to more than a few trips and a life on the go.

The unique design of the Bluffworks Pro and Sport Packing Cubes makes them a compelling option for those of you frequent travelers out there who need a bit more versatility out of your gear. You can secure one (or more) of these packing cubes today by making a pledge on Bluffworks’s Kickstarter campaign at the link below.

BLANK FORCES HyperLink Carabiner

Spend enough time looking at EDC setups and you’ll notice the popularity of carabiner-style key hangers as an integral part of how people carry and use their everyday essential gear. For some, it’s the first thing that they find a solution for when building their EDC, while for others, it’s the last thing that completes their ideal daily carry. And while there are a ton of options for basic carabiner functionality, the BLANK FORCES HyperLink stands out from the crowd with its integrated deep-carry pocket clip, full titanium construction, and snag-free, streamlined design.

The pocket clip is designed to allow you multiple ways of hanging the HyperLink, providing inboard and outboard options when attaching it to a strap, pack, or pocket. It’s positioned so that the carabiner body can hang as deeply as possible, letting it sit flush and preventing accidental removal and loss. This also makes it less likely to get the body scratched or damaged while in transit, leaving only the clip exposed when carrying inboard. And like most key hanger carabiners, you can also use the standard gate to hang the HyperLink off the belt loop of your pants, with the low profile clip getting out of the way.

A chassis and gate 3D-machined from solid Grade 5 titanium keeps the 2.5" long, 1" wide HyperLink down to a svelte 0.7 ounces. This makes it a compact, lightweight, and corrosion-proof addition to your daily carry. Its rounded edges and streamlined body helps it avoid snagging onto your other gear or worse yet, other’s gear when out and about. When it’s time to use, the carabiner gate opens wide for hanging onto belt loops and bag straps, and is kept sturdy by a stainless steel pivot and spring. Everything about this compact key- and gear-hanging carabiner is designed and built for out-and-about EDC use.

The BLANK FORCES HyperLink is a great way to upgrade your daily key-carrying setup, providing a tough, lightweight, and streamlined chassis that allows for multiple carry options. It’s also a great gift for your favorite EDCers, and one that you know they’ll easily integrate into their setups.  There’s less than a week left to take advantage of a 20% discount on pre-orders, so be sure check out their page before the special launch pricing closes on August 9th. While you’re at it, check out their Titanium Keyrings, which pair perfectly with the HyperLink, as well. Pick up a couple for you and your friends at the link below.

Trending: Benchmade 781 Anthem

Trending: Benchmade 781 Anthem

The Benchmade 781 Anthem distinguishes itself in the premium knife arena with an exceptional steel blade, quick and ambidextrous deployment and retraction, and a slim, integral titanium handle. Starting with the 3.5" stonewashed blade made from CPM-20CV, a corrosion-resistant "supersteel" with excellent edge retention, the material choices on this knife are upscale, sturdy, and meant to last. The utilitarian drop-point shape gives you excellent cutting and piercing capabilities, backed by the toughness of the steel choice. It deploys using dual-sided thumbstuds, while retraction is a quick and fidget-friendly affair with Benchmade’s AXIS lock—thus providing full ambidextrous operation. And then there’s that single piece, milled, full titanium handle, a first for an AXIS lock knife. The overall shape, combined with milled texturing give you an ergonomic and secure grip, plus, of course, all the great aspects of titanium: tough, lightweight, and corrosion resistant. It’s matched with an ambidextrous, tip-up, milled titanium clip. All these premium materials add up to a knife that’s a joy to carry at 4.56" long, 0.421" thick, and 3.66 ounces. This is the brand at its finest, and the Anthem represents Benchmade’s pinnacle of production knife design. Check it out at the link below.

Trending: Mechanix Wear FastFit Work Gloves

When working with your hands is an everyday requirement, selecting a good pair of gloves to EDC is crucial for workday comfort. Making sure they last and don’t break down during use is important, too. The Mechanix Wear FastFit Work Gloves trend on our gear charts as a hard-wearing, comfortable option for daily use and carry. The gloves use the brand’s own Trek Dry material to ensure a snug fit and provide a breathable layer that helps in keeping your hands dry and less prone to sweating. Rounded—not squared-off—fingertips help maintain dexterity when operating smaller or more delicate hardware, and the two-piece palm construction is designed to help prevent bunching. And since this is an all-around work glove, reinforced thumb and index finger areas ensure these frequent contact points don’t wear out prematurely. An easy to spot bright red pull tab helps in putting the gloves on and taking them off, while an elastic cuff enhanced with thermoplastic rubber secures the fit during use. Check out the different colorways at the link below.

MyDeejo Customization and Composite Collection

Deejo is a French cutlery brand that creates ultra-lightweight knives that you can customize on their website, providing a plethora of options and personalized details to make a knife truly your own. Turning the everyday pocket knife into a stylish accessory and a unique heirloom drives the company’s designs and offerings, supported by the belief that a lightweight knife that you love and use often is more likely to offer utility and give you the pleasure of ownership over an expensive one that lives in a drawer. Five years of innovation have led to the brand having a strong online and in-store presence and over 6,000 points of sale worldwide. This year, they launched 12 new and original tattoo designs to be added to the choices you can have etched onto the blade of any of their svelte and featherweight models.

Customizing your knife is easy on the MyDeejo site, where you are greeted by a simple and responsive interface that visually reflects all your current design choices from the number of options available. It’s best to begin with the overall size of the knife so it’s easier to preview what your final design will look like. You have choice of three options: a 7 cm long model that weighs 15 grams, a 9 cm one that weighs 27, and a large 11 cm long model that still only weighs 37 grams. These cover different use profiles, from letter opener to backup knife to primary EDC blade.

After choosing the size of your custom knife, you have plenty of options for blade finish, handle scales, and etching on the blade. You can choose a classic Mirror finish, a subdued Grey Titanium one, or a stealthy Black Titanium finish for the tough and corrosion-resistant 420 stainless steel blade. For the scales, aside from choices in natural wood, Deejo has added new designs and patterns in Composite options, which are also reflected in their new Composite Collection. Last but not least, you have over 70 options for designs that you can have etched on the blade, giving your knife a distinct aesthetic. Included are the 12 new knife tattoos introduced this year, which feature artwork related to Aviation, Punk, Rock and Roll, and a techy-looking Circuit Board, to name a few.

You also have the option of engraving yours or the name of a gift recipient on the handle itself. This or a memorable phrase or quotation makes the knife unique and personal. All your choices are previewed on a 3D rendering of your chosen design that you can scale or rotate, letting you review and make any last minute changes before you pull the trigger on your order. You can also share your design on social media and let your friends see your handiwork.

Once you order, it normally takes Deejo two business days to build your custom design and ship it. Aside from a full custom option, you an also check Deejo’s pre-made combinations that are ready for purchase and shipment. These are part of their latest Composite Collection, which feature premium scales with a Carbon Fiber weave, a new animalistic scaled pattern, or a polished Turtle Shell look.

Getting a svelte and sleek gentleman’s knife done right, with your own unique design choices, has never been easier. With their new Composite Collection and set of new knife tattoos that bolster their already plentiful blade design choices, you now have more options than ever to choose from. Check out the link below to start creating one for your own.
