Klarus Mi1C

When you think of the most compact yet versatile lights for EDC, certain brands and models come to mind. But with the speed of tech and innovation, what used to be a niche for strictly small lights now boasts some of its most powerful and convenient. Case in point: the new Klarus Mi1C. You wouldn't expect such power or runtime from a light the size of your thumb, but that's where it's just getting started.

At the heart of the Mi1C is a 16340 battery, with good voltage and capacity for a cell of its size. When paired with the light's XP-L HI V3 LED, you get outputs of up to 600 floody lumens on its highest output or up to 6 days of runtime on its 1-lumen Moonlight mode. And before you start worrying about having to charge it, the Mi1C is one step ahead with a built-in micro USB charging right in the battery, extending its use in your light as well as any other device that can use it.

Despite its size, Klarus didn't skimp on the Mi1C's build quality. It comes in IPX8-rated, HAIII-anodized aluminum, giving it 2 meters of waterproofing as well as impact resistance of up to 1 meter. Of course, it helps that the light is a mere 0.95 ounces without its battery, with a magnetic tail to let you position and secure it when in use. And last but not least, a stainless steel clip with lanyard hole lets you carry the Mi1C as needed.

There's a new contender for your coveted pocket space, and the Mi1C looks to make its mark. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below.

Ridge Wallet Titanium

Your EDC should help you stay ready for anything, but that’s hard to do if you've got a bulky wallet taking up valuable pocket space. That’s why so many are turning to slimmer cardholder wallets to make room for other useful gear, but even those aren't always as convenient as they claim to be. Thankfully there’s the Titanium Ridge Wallet which has a build tough enough for EDC while offering some extra security for your cards. All in a body as thin as a few credit cards.

Like all great cardholder wallets the Ridge Wallet is super thin measuring in at only 6mm. To get this slim, materials and construction are key. Two pieces of thin titanium—sought after by EDCers for its impressive strength to weight ratio and unique handfeel—are held together by T5 stainless steel screws and elastic bands. This modular plate construction makes it easy to expand should you need to carry more than a few cards (it can hold up to 12 at max capacity).

A finger notch along makes it easy to push out the cards inside, giving you easy access to the one you want without forcing you to take them all out of the wallet. Besides being tough enough to run over with a car, the wallet also comes with two aluminum RFID-blocking plates built in to protect your cards against wireless theft.

Of course the purpose of a good wallet is to hold currency, not only plastic cards. Which is why the Ridge Wallet also comes with two ways to carry cash. One is an elastic cash strap that not only maintains the thin profile of the wallet, but also has rubber gripping along the inside to prevent your cash from slipping out. If that’s not your style you can always opt for the money clip variation that keeps your hard-earned cash pinned securely against the wallet until you need it.

Whether you’re looking to slim down your wallet so you can carry more stuff or want an upgrade that protects you from modern ne'er-do-wells, the Ridge Wallet has you covered. This version's lightweight titanium construction that EDCers love is just the cherry on top. Make sure to click the link below to add this wallet to your pocket.

Lionsteel SR-11

The “Overall Knife of the Year” award is not a bad title to have attached to your new EDC blade, and that's exactly what the Lionsteel SR-11 is. This high-end production flipper beat out the rest thanks to its top marks in utility, design, creativity, and feel. At just over 8 inches when open, this knife has some serious presence both in hand and in pocket. The SR-11’s aggressive styling adds a unique visual appeal, while ensuring a solid grip thanks to the machined ridges all over the handles. The blade is ready to open right when you need it too. The flipper mechanism is complemented by a set of ball bearings that ensure quick and smooth deployment of the blade.

The SR-11 features a lengthy 3.7” blade that measures in at a hefty 4.5mm thick. It’s made from Sleipner 60-61 HRC tool steel, which is similar to D2. The benefits include chip and wear resistance, and the ability to hold a sharp edge. On top of the blade, you’ll find an aggressive swedge. This design element makes piercing tasks easier by slimming down the front of the blade. Near the pivot, the blade maintains its 4.5mm thickness to retain both durability and stability. It's the best of both worlds in one blade.

The standout feature on the SR-11 is the Rotoblock system. Right in the middle of the frame lock is a circular disc. With a quick turn of the disc, the frame lock is held down in the locked position. Essentially, it’s a lock for the lock - ideal for those who want an added level of security in their folding knives. While the frame lock is already one of the most secure knife locks, the Rotoblock improves on an already solid mechanism.

Finishing touches on the knife include a recessed lanyard hole, reversible low-profile pocket clip, and minimal branding throughout. The Lionsteel SR-11 is available from Amazon in a sleek grey titanium finish and includes a leather carrying sheath. You can pick up one of these robust, yet sleek EDC flippers at the link below, or in other colors direct from Lionsteel.
