CRKT Vizzle

Sometimes the best knives come as a surprise. If you gravitate towards the more minimal, gent's knife type of designs, you'd know many of them sacrifice some key features for a sleeker aesthetic and smaller size. The Jesper Voxnaes-designed, CRKT-produced Vizzle, on the other hand, flips the script. It's one of those rare, larger-sized minimalist knife options that conceals some unexpected features in an attractive design that's as low-profile as ever.

That's mostly in part due to how the 3.35” blade practically disappears when closed, nestling almost flush in the slender, stainless steel handle. Relative to the blade, the Vizzle's handle measures proportionally longer than most knives. That not only gives those of you with larger hands a better grip on the knife while in use, but it also streamlines the silhouette of the knife even further.

Two key, functional features stand out in the otherwise simple, stonewashed handle. First, a ridged thumbhole in the middle of the handle gives you a stable grip when deploying (or fidgeting with) the knife. Next, a flipper tab allows for effortless one-hand opening thanks to the Vizzle's IKBS ball bearing pivot. As for the blade itself, it's made with 8Cr13MoV steel and features a satin finish and a plain edge. For one more surprisingly useful hidden feature, the stainless steel framelock that keeps the knife in place even has an overtravel stop screwed into the lock bar itself.

In classic Voxnaes fashion, a black polymer backspacer adds contrast and a lanyard attachment point to the open-back construction of the knife. Because it's on the hefty side at 4.6 oz, you'll appreciate the included clip to help comfortably EDC the knife in your pocket. Overall, the Vizzle offers plenty of substance for such a minimalist design. Grab one for your EDC at the link below.

Olight S10R Baton III

You know a manufacturer's onto something when they're three generations into a product, making nothing but improvements every time. The S10R is Olight's flagship rechargable flashlight, and its third iteration gives you more power, more features, and faster charging in a smaller footprint. It cements the S10R as one of the best flashlights for everyday carry, giving you a great balance of power and size.

Like its predecessors, the S10R Baton III is powered by a custom rechargeable 650mAh RCR123A battery. This is paired with a new Luminus SST-40 LED that can output up to 600 lumens, a 100-lumen improvement from the S10R Baton II. This capacity also lets the S10R run for up to 15 days on its 0.5-lumen mode. You can change modes with Olight's signature low-profile side switch, a perfect match with its 2.7” length, 6% shorter from the previous Baton. Also new is a timer function that lets you adjust the S10R's output for 3- or 9-minute bursts.

A new USB desktop charger comes with the Baton III, the fastest charging dock for Olight's S series. The light is also compatible with previous portable magnetic charging cables (MCC), handy if you have one from older models. Finally, the Baton III comes with an improved lanyard with perforating tool to pair with its clip and magnetic tail, giving you tons of options for both use and carry.

Compact, rechargeable flashlights don't get any better than this. Pick up Olight's latest and greatest Baton from Amazon at the link below.

Prometheus Kappa Quick-Release Keychain

Your keychain's a great place to keep lightweight tools and backup essentials. But sometimes those extra steps of taking it out and detaching it from your belt loop can get cumbersome when your need your gear in a hurry. For moments like this, swapping in the Prometheus Kappa Quick Release (QR) system can be a small but significant upgrade to your EDC. With a simple twist, you can detach your keys or tools from your carabiner or suspension clip, saving you both time and bulk when you need to use them.

The Kappa's signature snap action is built with two specific parts. The first is a specially designed canted coil spring, manufactured to exact specifications and commonly used for electrical and mechanical connectors across industries. The second is its two disconnecting halves, one with a special groove where the spring lies and gives the Kappa its 10-pound attach/detach strength. Pull and twist the halves to the left to disconnect, push and twist them to the right to connect—simple and effective.

While the Kappa was originally paired with another Prometheus product and only came in brass, this new campaign gives backers a choice of 5 materials. You can choose between C360 brass (19g), C145 tellurium copper (20g), 6061 nickel-plated aluminum (10g), and two colors of either Delrin or Lexan thermoplastic, both at 7g. These materials also give you plenty of options of matching your Kappa to your EDC's aesthetic, from stealth black to classy copper.

The Kappa QR's campaign is well on its way and funded, and you have plenty of time to back for one of your own. Head over to the Kickstarter link below to pledge for yours.
