It's never a bad time to carry a good pen, especially one designed to take on the toughest everyday challenges. From tackling harsh writing deadlines to punching through glass in cases of emergency, the Impromptu—true to its name—prepares you for the unexpected, climbing our charts for Tactical Tuesday. As a jotter, it uses weather-resistant Rite in the Rain ink cartridges that write in all conditions, deployed with a reliable push-button clicky switch. Its machined steel body is thick and beefy, but apply force to its glass-breaking tempered tip and you can thrust through any trouble. Deep grooves in the body help with grip, and a Cerakote ceramic coating keeps its finish durable and resilient. Its stainless steel pocket clip also lets you easily carry the Impromptu for EDC. If you need a USA-made pen that can both outlive you and maybe even save your life someday, pick up the Gerber Impromptu at the link below.

StatGear Hygiene Hand

Now more than ever it’s important to avoid touching high-contact surfaces like door handles, elevator buttons, and payment terminals with your bare hands. That’s because all it takes is accidentally touching your face to put you at risk of infection. And access to hand sanitizer or a hand washing station can be limited in these trying times. The team at StatGear knows this firsthand as they’re based in New York City, an area hit especially hard by the coronavirus outbreak. That’s why they’re returning to Kickstarter with their latest creation, the Hygiene Hand. It’s a clever keychain solution that can help you handle high-contact surfaces while minimizing exposure to germs and viruses. If you’re looking for ways to switch up your EDC to protect yourself and others while practicing social distancing and quarantining, adding the StatGear Hygiene Hand to your kit can come in, well, handy.

StatGear has a long history of developing and delivering quality EDC products via crowdfunding, and their new Hygiene Hand was developed as a result of their company being located right at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in New York City. The StatGear Hygiene Hand is a keychain tool made out of brass, which is inherently antimicrobial unlike other materials like stainless steel where viruses can thrive for days on end. You should still wash the tool, and your hands, thoroughly after use because it’s not an end-all and be-all solution to prevent you from getting sick.

But with the hook design of the Hygiene Hand, you can at least avoid direct contact with door handles and call buttons. And because the tool has a stylus tip, you can use it on touchscreens like on ATM and point of sale terminals when you have to go out to run errands for yourself and the ones you love. The StatGear Hygiene Hand’s utility isn’t just limited to a pandemic situation, either. You can keep it with you for the years to come when you just don’t want to touch surfaces in grimy situations. And because the brass composition of the tool will develop an attractive patina over time, you can see it as a memento to remind yourself that you got through such a momentous time in human history by having the right everyday carry tools on hand.

To secure a Hygiene Hand for yourself today, you can make a pledge to StatGear’s fully-funded Kickstarter today at the link below.

Bellroy Apex 10th Anniversary Slim Sleeve Wallet

Bellroy Apex 10th Anniversary Slim Sleeve Wallet

When you think of a leather billfold wallet, you probably picture a big, bulky, “traditional” wallet you can find at any department store in mind. If you frequently carry cash, you might think settling for a wallet with a dated design is just the price you have to pay to keep bills on hand. But thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, you can carry a quality leather wallet without all the bulk, while still keeping cash conveniently on you. Case in point: Bellroy’s new Apex 10-year Anniversary Slim Sleeve wallet. It boasts a clever design you’d expect from the leather carry goods experts at Bellroy, but with a fresh, futuristic look only achievable by a cutting-edge manufacturing process. Take one look and you’ll realize the Apex Slim Sleeve is not your grandfather’s billfold.

The secret to the Bellroy Apex Slim Sleeve’s streamlined design is an advanced manufacturing process that leverages both extreme heat and pressure to join fabric rather than relying on traditional sewing techniques. his method can shape and bond pieces of premium environmentally-certified leather together directly, resulting in a sleek, seamless form that’s as functional as it is beautiful. With this technique, there are no stitches to fail, and it leads to a naturally water-resistant and minimal aesthetic that lends itself well to a modern carry. The 3D-forming also allows you to carry more cards and cash while keeping dimensions down: you can fit 6-8 standard-sized payment and identification cards and folded bills in a setup that’s only slightly bigger than the cards themselves. Since the wallet is pre-molded, your valuables stay safely inside, and the magnetic closure helps it stay shut when you’re not using it. And to keep your personal information safe from skimmers and fraudsters, Bellroy integrated RFID protection into the body.

If you’re looking for a sleek new minimalist card wallet that’ll let you carry cash without too much bulk, check out the new Bellroy Apex 10th Anniversary Slim Sleeve today. They’ve put together everything they know about making high-quality everyday carry wallets into its design, and its certainly worth your attention. Buy one for yourself now at the link below.

Trending: Kizer Yorkie

Titanium flippers have become all too common in the market, and with their popularity it’s becoming harder to find the right one for EDC. But if you’re in the market for a svelte, sleek slicer, the Kizer Yorkie is trending our charts to feature for today’s Minimalist Monday. The Yorkie comes as a collaboration between Kizer and knifemaker Ray Laconico, based on his custom design and built with premium materials.

Knife enthusiasts will recognize CPM S35VN as one of the highest tiers of steel that can be used for a blade, and on the Yorkie it’s ground into a compact, yet capable 2.5" drop-point blade. The stonewashed blade’s length makes the Yorkie legal to carry in more areas, and its flat grind makes it a reliable slicer. A prominent flipper tab helps you deploy the blade, while internal caged bearings keep the action smooth and reliable. The Yorkie’s titanium framelock handle features a steel lockbar insert for durability, and you can get it in a subtle gray or anodized blue with a matching titanium pocket clip. Last but not least, the Yorkie’s total package weighs in at 2.93 ounces, giving you a light and comfortable EDC. Check it out at the link below.
