WESN Ti Microblade

The titanium flipper remains relevant to this day as a premium option due to its great combination of ease of use, light weight, and remarkable durability. Combining titanium’s great strength to weight ratio with the convenience of flipper deployment results in a fast and functional EDC knife. The WESN Ti Microblade offers a new take on the design that focuses on pocketabilty and portability, without losing functionality. It gives you the utility and practicality of having a readily accessible knife at a fraction of the weight, and in a package that’s the size of a house key. It’s a great way to always have a working knife on you, no matter where you go.

The petite, yet potent Microblade is 2.25" when closed, and 3.75" overall with the blade deployed. The EDC-friendly 1.5" blade is made of heat-treated AUS-8 stainless steel, known for its toughness, rust resistance, and ease of maintaining a razor-sharp edge. The drop-point shape gives you some belly for slicing, as well as a sturdy tip for piercing and precision work. On a shorter blade like this, having that prominent belly helps maximize cutting edge to work with, making it capable for quick slicing jobs despite it being on the smaller side. Its ultra-compact design and shorter blade length allows for unobtrusive carry even in places with stricter knife laws.

Deploying the blade is a snap with the small yet pronounced flipper tab, and you can also slow-roll using the stepped thumbstud when you want to be more discreet. When opened, a sturdy frame lock integrated into the Grade 5 Titanium handles keeps the blade locked in and secure. You have a lot of options for carrying the Microblade: the handle features a pocket clip, allowing you to secure it in your fifth jeans pocket, as well as a keychain hole that allows you to attach a lanyard for easy retrieval from inside your pockets, or a split ring so that you can integrate it with the rest of your keys.

The latest version of the Microblade features G10 handle scales in an OD Green colorway, providing some visual contrast to the warm-hued Gunmetal color used on the titanium framelock. The durable glass-reinforced resin features high impact strength, chemical and temperature tolerance, and provides a bit of texture for an enhanced grip.

At 1.0 ounce and with a compact form factor, the WESN Ti Microblade carries well as a fifth pocket knife, a keychain knife, or as a lightweight backup blade. It’s barely there when you don’t need it, yet the design and materials deliver high performance for when you do. Additionally, WESN’s Lifetime Warranty ensures that it remains that way. Check out the version with G10 handles, as well as other handle scale options, via the link below. Also, take advantage of the product code EDCXSHEATH for a free leather sheath when you get your own compact Microblade.

Fenix E20 V2.0 EDC Flashlight

When it comes to EDCing a flashlight, having a balance between ease of use and a pocket-friendly design is key. And for some EDCers, simpler is better. Even with many modern day lights boasting programmable modes and uncommon battery cells, a no-frills, no-fuss light that works reliably can be just as effective, especially if you’re after a light you can depend on during an emergency. That’s what makes the updated Fenix E20 V2.0 EDC flashlight so special: it’s compact, thin, and lightweight, making it not a burden to bring around with you everyday in the pocket or bag of your choice. Its easy single tailswitch operation, and use of two normal AA alkaline batteries makes for a no-hassle, competent everyday carry light that you can count on.

Now in its second iteration, the new Fenix E20 V2.0 features a Luminus SST20 LED module that puts out a 350 lumen max light output that’s quite generous considering it’s designed to use two regular easily-found AA alkaline batteries. If you prefer to use rechargeable batteries, the light is also compatible with Ni-MH AA cells as well. The practical light output makes the Fenix E20 great for EDC utility and inspection use in the dark where other EDC lights might feel disorienting to use. The flashlight leverages an ultra-thin optical lens to spread emitted light into a useful manageable 85 degree angle beam out to a max throw of 413 feet.

Because the Fenix E20 uses a single reliable tail switch at the back of the light that’s rated for at least 100,000 actuations, operating the light is easy. The tailswitch turns the light on and off, and it also lets you cycle through four different brightness levels. This includes an eco mode that brings things down to a low 5 lumens for extended runtime when you need it.

At just 5" long and 0.68" in diameter at the head, the Fenix E20 feels similar to carrying a pen on your pocket, and it has a durable pocket clip that makes doing so pretty easy. And because the light is precision machined out of high quality 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum, it weighs in at just 1.48 ounces unloaded. With its IP68 rated water-resistance which allows the light to remain submerged for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 2 meters, it’s ready for the worst rain you can encounter on your travels both near and far.

It’s rare to see such a combo of easy carry options, simple operation, and reliable yet useful light output from an everyday carry flashlight, and it’s easy to see why the new Fenix E20 wowed fans at SHOT Show 2020. And now you can grab one of these great EDC LED flashlights for yourself today at the link below.

Trending: Marathon GSAR Automatic

Trending: Marathon GSAR Automatic

Your watch is usually the most visible—and vulnerable—part of your EDC kit, and upgrading it usually means classier aesthetics, better performance, and increased durability. The Marathon GSAR, which stands for Government Search and Rescue, is a Swiss-made diver-style watch that’s built to perform anywhere you take it, whether that be an outdoor adventure or the battleground of boardroom meeting. This mil-spec mid-sized offering combines a 24-hour dial that borrows from the utilitarian field watch design, paired with a uni-directional rotating bezel commonly found on dive watches. Protected by a clear and tough sapphire crystal, the dial features tritium glass tubes and the brand’s own Maraglo luminescent markings to allow for legibility even in total darkness. Inside, a Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 keeps the GSAR ticking with a ~38-hour power reserve. The 41mm wide and 14mm thick 316L stainless steel case provides superior corrosion resistance and enough wrist presence without being too bulky. Combined with a large screw-in crown, this tough chassis provides water resistance that allows you to take it down to an impressive 1,000 feet (300 meters). If you’re looking for a significant upgrade in performance and functionality for your daily timepiece, check out the Marathon GSAR at the link below.

The most distinct feature of the Hazard 4 Bandoleer is the molded hardshell construction of the bag itself. The technique involved turns the already-durable and water-resistant 1000D CORDURA fabric into something even more ready to deal with the scraps of daily use. With 2 liters of space, there’s enough room for your essential tech and carry gear without weighing you down and ruining your mobility.

The bag features internal organization spaces for smaller items like stationery, keys, and small flashlights. There’s also a dedicated space that’s compatible with hook and loop holsters for defensive CCW needs. The exterior of the bag is also further extensible with Hazard 4’s HardPoint hardware accessories. And for a bag that’s designed around fast-paced activities, it’s streamlined enough to avoid flapping around in the wind if you wear it on a ride. And the versatile main strap is designed for easy switching between your left and right side for ambidextrous operation.

If your EDC includes valuable electronics like cameras and small tablets, the Hazard 4 Bandoleer gives you peace of mind as you go about your daily business. It’s available today in both black and coyote tan, so click the link below and make one yours today.

Trending: Leatherman Super Tool 300

While it’s been around for what seems like ages, the Leatherman Super Tool 300 continues to trend on our charts as a go-to choice for bigger and tougher tasks. Weighing in at 9.6 ounces and measuring 4.5" closed, this heavy-duty multi-tool features 19 functions geared towards construction and industrial applications, but work especially well for everyday tasks.

Inside the handles you can unfold the rest of the tools, which include different-sized screwdrivers, a can and bottle opener, a file, a saw, and an awl. Last but not least, this multi-tool lets you bring along two knife blades: a clip point with a plain edge and a sheepsfoot with a serrated edge, both made from tough and easily sharpened 420HC stainless steel. If you’re looking for a larger and tougher multi-tool for your EDC, the venerable Leatherman Super Tool 300 could be the one for you. Check it out at the link below.

Dango Capsule Wide

For most of us, each item in our EDC serves a clear purpose on its own: a knife for cutting, a pen for writing, a watch for telling the time, and so on. It makes sense to have these “main ingredients” in our EDCs as things we rely on every day — but what about all the other miscellaneous things we keep on us just in case? Nice-to-haves like extra batteries, spare change, or even medication can be hard to carry effectively, despite (or in some cases, because of) their small size. That’s why Dango devised their family of EDC-worthy Capsules, a set of sturdy containers dedicated to keeping your “smalls” in proper order. Whether it’s spare change for the parking meter, a spare key in case of a lockout, or even emergency matches you need to keep dry—if it’s small, chances are the Dango Capsule Family can store and protect it.

The newest addition to the Capsule Family sets itself apart from the more common pill-shaped containers with its wide and shallow form factor. This made-in-USA, food-safe, and waterproof container gives you a nifty way to carry and organize your small EDC items. Measuring 58mm x 21mm, it provides enough storage for a everyday items like a spare key, loose change, and mints. It’s also suitable as a go-anywhere container for emergency or outdoor gear like first aid essentials or even fishing bait for the more adventurous EDCers. Accessing your gear is a matter of simply twisting off its threaded screw-down lid. On the back, is removable stainless steel clip that lets you keep the Capsule Wide within easy reach—clipped onto your belt or the strap of your EDC pack. If you’re looking to let this settle in your pocket or in your bag, an integrated loop hole allows you to attach a lanyard, or secure it with a tether, ideally with one of Dango’s very own metal-clasped tethers or slings.

The Capsule Wide was also designed to be able to carry two of the regular-sized Capsules. At 13.5mm x 21.8mm, the Dango Capsule shares the same lightweight anodized 6061 Aluminum construction. They are food safe so you can carry pills or medicine, and are waterproof to 1000 feet to keep whatever you store safe and dry. This one closes with the Quad Loop Secure Cap that lets you tether it in different ways to your pack or gear, and Dango has thoughtfully included a Dual Loop to get you started. The Capsule family includes the upscaled Titanium Capsule, for those looking to get their EDC Ti fix, as well as the Capsule XL which ups the size to 19mm x 75mm, allowing you to carry backup cash, matches, charging cords, or—like the Capsule Wide—two regular Capsules for more storage and organization options.

It’s rapidly growing, but let’s not forget the original member of the family, the Coin Capsule. It’s a modern take on the coin carrier to complement your favorite minimalist wallet. This handy 60mm x 27mm aluminum container accommodates up to $5.44 in a combination of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. A belt clip and lanyard attachment point give you multiple ways to keep your coins handy, organized, and silent — no more pocket jangle.

All of the Capsule products are made in the USA and designed to be tough and easy to carry companions to help you bring all your small items everyday. You can get Dango’s new Capsule Wide in Satin Silver or Jet Black, with the option to include their Tether and Clip at the link below.
