Customize Your Deejo Pocket Knife With More Designs Than Ever

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.

Seven years of innovation have led to the brand having a strong online and in-store presence and over 6,000 points of sale worldwide. They've launched even more new and original tattoo designs in 2022 to be added to the choices you can have etched onto the blade of any of their svelte and featherweight models, so it's the best time ever to treat yourself to a custom new knife, give a unique gift, or to celebrate new milestones ahead.

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. Last but not least, you have over 50 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 Goal, Mountain, Moon Phase, Pharaoh Skull, Samurai, T-Rex, Sailing, Viking Vegvisir, Whale, Butterfly, Chinese Dragon, and Immortal, among all the other choices already available.

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.

Last but not least are new choices for the perfect handle to match your custom blade. New for 2022 are options for Blue Beech Wood and Camo, along with popular options like carbon fiber weave or animalistic scales. 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.

Getting a svelte and sleek gentleman’s knife done right, with your own unique design choices, has never been easier. And this year, new knife tattoos and handle selections bolster their already plentiful design choices, so you now have more options than ever to choose from. Check out the link below to start creating one for your own.

G-SHOCK GMWB5000MB-1 Full Metal Watch

G-SHOCK GMWB5000MB-1 Full Metal Watch

All good things have a beginning. For the venerable G-SHOCK watch, that beginning was the DW-5000C, a shockproof and waterproof watch that took the world by storm with its release. And for decades since, the G-SHOCK has been the be-all-end-all timepiece for discerning watch wearers who value durability and reliability for their EDC.

Over the years, countless models of the G-SHOCK watch have been released, but the original still carries a strong appeal. This year brings a reissue of the watch, giving it a premium upgrade with a stainless steel bezel, case, and band that gives this classic timepiece a modern fit, finish, and set of features. And with improvements to the internal tech of the watch, the new GMWB5000MB-1 is the definitive edition to pick up this year.

The GMWB5000MB-1 is the most sophisticated edition of this model released to date. The stainless steel bezel features a hairline polished finish that contrasts handsomely against the matte black case and band. The band surfaces, screws, and buttons are also treated with a mirror finish. The black ion plating on the entire watch adds to the durability of this extraordinarily shock-resistant and water-resistant wristwatch.

The highly-legible digital face features a super-twisted nematic LCD for superior contrast, and behind it sits G-SHOCK’s Super-Illuminator LED backlight for easy reading in the dark. A few quality of life upgrades come with this edition: the watch now features solar-powered timekeeping. It also links with most smartphones with Bluetooth and radio control to sync the time based on your geographic location and remind you of important events. When you lose track of your phone, you can also take advantage of this link to cause your phone to ring when you need it.

With the GMW-B5000 series, G-SHOCK has taken their groundbreaking watch–the watch that started the entire mythos of the G-SHOCK line–and made it even greater than before. It’s the epitome of what that original design could accomplish and more. With its premium build and attention to detail, this is the G-SHOCK you should buy today whether you’re looking for a new everyday carry watch or looking to add to your collection.

5.11 Norris Sneaker

Sometimes in EDC, it’s easy to forget that what’s on our body can be just as important as what we carry inside our pockets. After all, what’s the point of packing knives, flashlights and wallets if the gear you’re wearing won’t get you where you need to go? 5.11 is well aware of this, as illustrated by their vast catalog of high-performance clothing and tactical apparel. One of their most successful examples is the Norris Sneaker, which brings the durability and thoughtful design of their EDC accessories to a casual sneaker that’s built to support and protect your feet without compromising comfort and style.

Starting from the bottom, the Norris sneaker features a Vibram Marbrani outsole for extra durability. 5.11 knows that having solid footing wherever your adventure takes you is paramount. That’s why they’ve also included XS Trek technology, which provides traction even in wet surfaces, so you can feel sure-footed rain or shine. The sole also includes a Welmax board that’s been ASTM-certified to be puncture resistant for up to 290 pounds of force. The inside of the sneaker is as comfortable as it is tough on the outside, all thanks to a cushioned Ortholite footbed.

The rest of the Norris sneaker is built upon this solid foundation, constructed with hard use in mind. Take a look at the toe section for example, which has been reinforced with climbing-grade rubber to add an extra layer of traction and protection on steep terrain and scrambles. An ankle collar will make sure this high-top sneaker provides you with the support and stability you need to traverse commutes and hikes alike while a padded tongue protects against hotspots for long treks on foot.

More fashionable than a tactical shoe, more durable than a regular sneaker, the Norris finds the right balance between fashion and function. Pick one up at the link below.

Skullcandy Mod True Wireless Earbuds

Skullcandy Mod True Wireless Earbuds

With almost two decades of experience, Skullcandy has become one of the top contenders in the personal audio market with its thoughtful functionality, innovative features, and affordable price. Coming in as the newest model in the line-up are the Mod Wireless Earbuds, a wireless audio solution for your multi-tasking and everyday needs.

What sets the Skullcandy Mod Earbuds apart is the debut of their all-new Multipoint Pairing technology, a rare feature even on more expensive earbuds. This feature lets you pair your earbuds to multiple devices simultaneously, allowing you to switch between them seamlessly. You can go from listening to your favorite podcast on your computer to answering calls on your cell phone without any extra hassle. This feature works regardless of the device manufacturer, so you’re not trapped in any walled gardens.

Thanks to the addition of the Clear Voice Smart Mic, the Mod earbuds have an easier time differentiating between your voice and background noise, making sure the people on the other end of a call can hear you crystal clear. With the adjustable Stay-Aware mode, you’ll be able to increase or decrease how much noise you get to hear from your surrounding environment. This feature is handy while hiking, commuting, or any other activity requiring you to pay attention to your surroundings. And, if you pair your Mod Earbuds with the Skullcandy App, you’ll be able to customize the earbuds’ operation and use personalized equalizer settings to make the most out of your favorite music.

Skullcandy designed the Mod earbuds so you can wear them every day, so it’s no surprise they come with EDC-friendly features. First is 34-hour battery life for all-day use. The earbuds can hold up to 7 hours of runtime, while the charging case holds the rest. And if they ever run out of juice, its USB-C rapid-charging case can give you 2 hours of listening time in 10 minutes.

The buds also come with IPX5 construction, making them resistant to sweat, moisture, and water. Finally, knowing how easy it can be to misplace earbuds, Skullcandy equipped the Mods with Tile Technology. If you ever lose track of one (or both), you can press a button on the app to locate them with a helpful ring. The Mod True Wireless Earbuds are available for pre-order from Skullcandy at the link below.

The Vincero Argo Automatic Watch

Named after the warship used to retrieve the Golden Fleece in Greek Mythology, the Vincero Argo is a watch meant to prove that you don’t have to decide between style or functionality when it comes to what’s on your wrist. Though this fresh take on the classic dive watch silhouette might look like a timepiece you would pair with a suit or wear to a formal occasion, the Argo is built tough to give you the rugged functionality that an EDC watch demands.

The Argo presents itself with a medium-sized 41mm diameter case made from 316L surgical stainless steel. Its 20mm bracelet is made out of the same material and closes via a secure push button clasp; though if you prefer, you can opt for an additional silicone band. The face features white circles and indices acting as the hour markers, each surrounded by an accenting metal outline.

You’ll also find a smaller 24 hour dial on the outer rim of the face, for those used to military time. And if you find yourself in low-light conditions, both hands of the Argo along with its indices have been coated with Swiss Super-LumiNova paint, offering an excellent bright blue glow in the dark.

The Argo doesn’t just look the part of a dive watch—it’s fully equipped with the features you’d depend on deep under the surface. For example, you’ll have access to a unidirectional rotating bezel, helping you measure time elapsed while diving. The face itself is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, coupled with a transparent sapphire caseback, meant to showcase the beautiful machinery inside. This, combined with a screw-down crown at the 3 o’clock position makes the Argo water-resistant down to 200 meters.

All of this is powered by a reliable automatic Citizen Miyota Series 9015 movement. Like most mechanical watches this allows the watch to wind its mainspring via the regular movements of your arm and wrist, so with regular use you won’t have to ever worry about replacing a battery. And for whenever you’re not wearing the watch, a 40-hour reserve means you’ll have a near-weekend’s worth of power, ready to wear again to start off the week.

You don’t have to decide between form or function with the the Argo, thanks to providing both in a single, modern package. Pick one up in one of its five different colorways at the link below.

"This unique folding knife might be called the Grouper, but it looks like a chameleon sitting on a branch to us. It opens and closes using ball-bearing pivots, and its titanium frame has smooth, chamfered edges. In addition to its replaceable utility blade, it has a built-in carabiner clip and a..."
