Bespoke Post Curated EDC Essentials

Bespoke Post Curated EDC Essentials

One of the most satisfying pleasures in EDC is finding the exact tool to address your specific needs. But with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, not everyone has the time to put into researching the right gear for them. Not to mention that even the most dedicated EDCers can sometimes miss a great and potentially game-changing release from lesser-known brands. What if you could just skip the research phase and get right to the part where you get the cool tools in your hands? That’s where Bespoke Post comes in with their curated boxes. Each month you get carefully selected and unique items delivered right to your door, saving you hours of research and letting you get right to work.

Bespoke Post vets and tests everything they put into their Boxes of Awesome themselves. This includes gear for everyday carry, style and grooming personal effects, and even specialty interests like barware and cooking tools, among many others. Whatever you’re into, chances are each box will offer a unique and interesting piece of gear you might've not known about. Just ticking a few boxes at sign-up will ensure that you never get a piece of gear you’re not interested in. Plus, you’ll be able to see exactly what’s coming each month beforehand, so there’s never any surprises. Skipping a box, swapping it out for another one, or adding even more eye-catching pieces from their online store is hassle-free. That way, you’ll never be charged for anything that you don’t want, and each Box of Awesome is tailor-fit to your preferences.

New boxes get released every month across a ton of categories. Bespoke Post are also adding EDC-centric gear all the time, including new items in their Flip and Gear categories. Past boxes have included everything from slim wallets and pocket knives, to obscure spices and cocktail aging kits and everything in between. So whether you want to step up in the kitchen, dress a little sharper, or replace your aging wallet or knife, a Bespoke subscription might be the easiest way to try out new stuff.

It’s free to join Bespoke Post and you can skip a month or cancel your subscription at any time. Each box comes with over $70 worth of gear, but because of their partnerships with the original makers your monthly subscription will only cost you $45. You get to save money with your Box of Awesome than if you tried to get each of its pieces individually.

Ardor & Forge Rothrock Collection

As much as our gear is often industrial, mechanical, and produced from cold materials, it’s always nice when a product comes along that gets us back in touch with nature. Inspired by Rothrock State Forest in Central Pennsylvania, Ardor & Forge brings us a set of watches that reflect the natural spaces they were created in. The collection features four watches, designed with a common aesthetic, but each with its own distinct features. It’s a solid set of adventure-inspired watches, built to last and ready to join you off the beaten path.

Each Rothrock watch features a unique sand-cast texture on the case, something not yet seen in the watch world. The resulting look is rugged, with the case material able to hide those inevitable bumps, nicks, and scratches that happen during everyday wear. Inside the 42mm textured case, you’ll find a reliable NH35 Japanese automatic watch movement. Thanks to the screw down crown and case design, the watch is water resistant to 10ATM (100m/330ft.), more than enough for excursions both on and below the water. Ardor & Forge went the extra mile by adding real oak to the winding rotor, visible through the sapphire display caseback on the underside of the watch.

The Rothrock also has oak accents on the crown end and in the rehaut, running around the outside of the dial; a subtle detail made of natural material that reminds you of the outdoors whenever you need to check the time. On the dial, you’ll find a highly legible 12-hour scale, rendered in Super-LumiNova for visibility even in the darkest of conditions. The Rothrock is available in four colorways. The Seeger features a raw stainless steel case with deep blue dial, the Detweiler is housed in a vintage gold PVD case with olive green dial, the Thickhead has a black DLC case with black dial, and the Juniata features a raw stainless steel case with a fully lumed white dial, giving it a stunning effect in low light. Drilled lugs and double lug holes make it quick and easy to change up the strap too, adding to their versatility.

The Ardor & Forge Rothrock collection will be available for pre-order on November 19th, with some great options at launch. Prices start at $350 for early pre-orders, eventually reaching the final retail price of $550 when each price tier sells out, so you can save a decent chunk of change by getting in early.

A portion of sales go to support the Pennsylvania Parks & Forests Foundation, so you’re supporting conservation of the great outdoors by picking up a watch inspired by them. Learn even more about the Ardor & Forge Rothrock collection and pick one up for yourself at the link below.

Trending: TECBOSS Torch Lighter

Trending: TECBOSS Torch Lighter

It’s coming up to that time of the year when the cold wind and rain are picking up, and it’s not a surprise that the TECBOSS Torch Lighter has been popular with our readers for Torch Thursday. Unlike typical lighters, a butane lighter is windproof and can deliver a much higher temperature with a focused beam. The TECBOSS Torch Lighter also has a large capacity for a pocket butane lighter, holding 1.8g of fuel at a time for up to 500 ignitions. The flame intensity is easily adjustable with a twist of the gas valve on the back end of the unit, making it versatile enough for a variety of uses, indoor and outdoor alike. The casing made of high quality zinc alloy is sturdy and the slim rounded design is pleasing to the eye and in the hand. It takes only a little push of a finger to slide the large switch up to get a light, and a safety lock prevents accidental activation during transport. Don’t be caught in the wind struggling to light a cigar or start a campfire, pick one up at the link today.

Orient 2nd Generation Defender

Orient 2nd Generation Defender

When investing in your EDC gear, you usually get what you pay for. And as far as watches go, you've got a huge range of price points to choose from. But some watch brands made a name for themselves by delivering excellent value for the money. Orient is one brand that consistently produces affordable EDC watches for the features they provide. The new and improved 2nd generation Defender continues the trend. It brings the same great functionality of its predecessor, but with a new dial design that improves upon the legibility you'd expect from a field watch.

The second generation of the Defender comes as an iterative update of its predecessor, featuring many of the same complications and specs at its core. That includes 60 second/minute marker ring, date display, weekly-, and 24-hour sub-dials. With all that information available on your wrist, Orient repositioned the complications on the face for easier time-telling at a glance in this updated version. Red accents on the hands also add contrast, which is especially useful for the smaller second and sub-dial hands.

Other changes include a slightly larger 42.4mm case, a repositioned screw-down crown, and an upgraded 22-jewel, in-house automatic movement (complete with hacking capabilities). The brushed stainless steel case sports a robust 100M of water resistance to handle everyday wear and tear, while a beefy nylon strap completes its rugged look. You can pick up this new and improved Defender at the link below.

Deejo Customized Knives

Many would consider an EDC blade to be an essential part of their carry, but not all knives are the same. Some of the best-made knives can still be too heavy to be convenient, which is what makes Deejo knives so special. The barebones, skeletonized design strips away every possible excess bulk, leaving you with a lightweight blade you can rely on, customized exactly to your liking to be a one-of-a-kind addition to your everyday kit.

Deejo offers a wide range of materials and aesthetics, but the 3.7” 420 stainless steel blade is the workhorse that gets things done. Its liner lock ensures that it’ll stay secure while in use and safely tucked away when you don’t need it. The curved frame makes it easy to pocket and helps keep it comfortable in the hand, all without sacrificing the ultra-minimalist look. The thin build and large pivot also make one-handed deployment a breeze, so if you're in the middle of a project and need a quick slice you won't have to fumble around for your blade. Then there are the plethora of customization options that let you inject some personality into your tool.

There are three different sizes, three finishes, and numerous handle materials that you can choose from. The largest size weighs just 37 grams, but you can go even lighter with 27 and 15 gram options as well. For the handle, you can go with natural wood, colored wood, or carbon fiber, to name a few. The stainless steel of the blade can also be grey or black titanium, and for a unique twist, you can “tattoo” a special design onto the blade at no extra cost. There are over 60 options to choose from ranging from roses to a Viking dragon and everything in between. You can take it a step further by also engraving your name or a short message onto the thin metal frame of the blade for an extra dose of customization.

Whether you’re looking to build yourself the ultimate minimalist knife or are looking to gift someone a blade as a sentimental heirloom, the Deejo is a worthy addition to any EDC. Its thin and unassuming build is a good choice whether you’re in a suit or a pair of blue jeans, and the option to customize it to your liking makes it mean that much more. Make sure to click the link below if you want to start building one for yourself.
