Kershaw Launch 9

When it comes to lightning-quick blade deployment in an EDC knife, nothing beats the speed and convenience of a good automatic opening. The concept is simple: one press of a button and out swings a blade, locked and ready for action. But automatic knives over a certain length aren’t legal to carry everywhere, and your options for a good automatic EDC on the smaller side are limited. That’s why Kershaw has taken one of their most popular automatic knife designs, the Launch 2, and brought the size down as an accessible option for EDCers in more locales. With the new Kershaw Launch 9 in hand, you won’t have to compromise deployment speed when it’s time to put your everyday carry to work.

Kershaw’s Launch 9 is a compact automatic EDC knife that’s a joy to use. Its 1.8" CPM-154 stainless steel blade springs into place with the push button mechanism. The blade itself is shaped into a sleek drop point shape with a pronounced belly for slicing and a spear-like tip for piercing work as well. The faster automatic opening and less-bulky blade length, combined with an ergonomic handle that’s made of 6061-T6 aerospace-grade aluminum, makes for a truly lightweight package. The Launch 9 weighs a mere 1.6 ounces, giving the knife a serious barely-there level of minimal weight. With its reversible tip-up deep-carry pocket clip, you can carry it discreetly.

The Launch 9 also features an attractive stonewash finish that’s durable enough for even heavy duty jobs. Thanks to the Launch 9’s sub-2“ blade length, it’s a viable EDC option in some areas, like California. Be sure to check your local knife laws to make sure a sub-2” automatic blade is legal to carry in your area.

If you’ve been looking to pick up an automatic knife for everyday carry, consider Kershaw’s new, made-in-the-USA Launch 9. It offers unmatched speed and premium performance in a package sized just right for legal carry in more places than other automatics.

Trending: Craft & Lore Enfold Wallet

Leather isn't the lightest or the slimmest material to use for a wallet, but when it comes to longevity, feel in hand, and appearance over time, it's pretty hard to beat. This is especially true when a premium leather like Horween's luxe options come into play, like on this week's Wallet Wednesday spotlight, the Craft & Lore Enfold Wallet. Designed as a minimalist card holder, the Enfold is handcrafted from start to finish, from hand cutting its Horween luxury Dublin English Tan leather to punching its holes and saddle stitching its seams, ensuring the highest quality wallet that stands up to everyday use. And over  time, the Horween leather will develop a patina unique to its owner that's simply a cut above the rest. Check out this handmade, made in the USA wallet in your choice of 4 colors at the link below.

Dango M1 Rail Wallet

For the most part, using a modern wallet is a simple affair. You flip open the bifold or compartment to get to your essentials, or for a minimalist wallet, pull out the cards and cash as needed. But there are some things these wallets aren’t able to do well, like easily displaying identification or having an open RFID space for train cards or access cards. With an entire catalog dedicated to solving everyday wallet problems, Dango are set to do it yet again with their new M1 Maverick Rail wallet. It’s got the DNA and ease of use of a modern minimalist wallet while uniquely built to address new urban needs. With a design inspired by open identification badges and and the build quality you’ve come to expect from Dango, the M1 Maverick Rail is a new and even more efficient wallet for EDC.

While the M1 Rail takes design cues from Dango’s other wallets, the new patent pending quick release rail mechanism is a new system that gives this model its name. On the “open” side of the M1, a pair of flexible prongs act as the securing structure to hold 4 of your most-used cards, while allowing you to easily slide and pop them out as needed. This side of the wallet allows RFID transmission, which makes it easy to use your regular workplace and commuter cards. The other side of the M1 has space for 5 cards along with an aluminum backplate that encapsulates the section and gives it RFID protection. A silicone band gives the sides grip and gives the rear section extra lockdown as well as a space to slot in more cards and folded cash.

Like many of Dango’s newer wallets, the M1 Rail is compatible with the stainless steel MT04 multi-tool, which gives you 10 different EDC-essential functions including sharpened edges for cutting, a bottle opener, hex wrenches, and a pry tool. When you have to fly, take the MT04 out and the M1 Rail becomes TSA-compliant. The M1 Rail itself as well as its backplate are CNC-machined from 6061 anodized aluminum giving it a light weight in spite of its beefy profile. As an extra EDC option, the wallet’s corners offer attachment points for a lanyard or Dango’s own tether products.

The Dango M1 Rail wallet is every bit the modern high-performance wallet, offering convenience, security, and made in the USA build quality that sets it apart from other minimalist options. Check it out in your choice of two colors at Dango’s site at the link below.

Trending: Buck 112 Ranger

Buck is a venerable name when it comes to carrying a gent's knife for EDC, and their 112 Ranger lockback folding knife is one of the more popular models they make. For Traditional Tuesday, we take a look at this classic folder, with its timeless design that spans generations and solid features that make it an excellent everyday folder. A 3" 420HC clip point blade is its main attraction, with a sweeping belly and sharp point that make short work of general cutting tasks. Nail nick deployment keeps the blade clean and sleek, while a lockback mechanism subtly takes its place on the tail of the 112's classy handles. Inlaid Macassar Ebony wood with brass bolsters deliver an iconic combination for these handles, with enough length for a full-handed grip for better control while the knife is in use. A genuine leather sheath rounds out its features and give the 112 Ranger a comfortable home in your EDC. Pick up this made in the USA classic from the link below.

Buck 104 Compadre Camp Knife

Buck 104 Compadre Camp Knife

As handy and as useful folding knives are for EDC, they’re not the ideal tool for the job when it comes to outdoor tasks. For those, the simplicity and efficiency of a fixed blade can’t be beat. With a larger profile to match a beefier blade, a full grip thanks to locked-in handles, and no moving parts that can break or require maintenance, nothing beats a solid fixed blade for an outdoor or survival kit. Buck’s new 104 Compadre knife is one of three new fixed blades built for camp work, each designed for specific tasks and all made in the USA with Buck’s signature construction. With a no-nonsense, no-frills, and all-business feature set, the 104 Compadre Camp Knife is ready to do some work.

Fixed blade knives are all about the blade and its steel. The 104’s blade and tang comes in 5160 spring steel (best known for its excellent shock absorbing properties) hardened to 57-58 HRC for high performance without requiring specialized maintenance or sharpening. You get 4.5“ of cutting edge on a drop point, making it as versatile as possible for all type of cutting needs. A Cobalt gray Cerakote coating on the blade adds even more rust and corrosion resistance, making the 104 usable for both general purpose and food prep tasks, not to mention giving the knife an aesthetic dark blade.

The rest of the knife’s 9.5“ full tang goes into natural canvas Micarta handles for optimal grip, durability, and resistance, with a subtle groove at the end of the tang to lock in a full-handed grip against the bolster. And when it’s time to pack up, the 104 Compadre comes with a genuine leather sheath with a belt loop attachment for stowing on your belt or on the webbing of your gear. A lanyard hole on the handles also gives an additional carry and retrieval option if needed.

With simplicity comes efficiency, and the Buck 104 Compadre ticks all the boxes for an absolutely solid outdoor knife, backed by over 110 years of made in the USA experience and a forever warranty. Pick it up from Amazon at the link below, and be sure to check out the rest of the Compadre series to round out your camp EDC.
