Customize a Deejo Pocket Knife with MyDeejo

EDC is by nature highly personalized—people not only have different personalities but different needs as well. And it isn’t just the combination of items that we should be able to customize. Why not the tools themselves? Pocket knives in particular can be tough to dial in, with plenty to consider from how it performs, to how it looks, and much more. So why shouldn’t you be able to build your knife from the blade (or the hilt) up?

MyDeejo is the unique online customization service offered by Deejo. Here, you get the advantages of a slim and sleek Deejo knife paired with hundreds of combinations of options to customize a design that's truly yours. You have a classic, ultra-thin blade of 420 stainless steel with an integrated liner lock to keep the knife strong, but still light. A skeletonized handle also contributes to the weight (or lack thereof), and the holster you get with every purchase makes it perfect for EDC. As for handling, you get easy one-handed deployment thanks to a large pivot and friction opening.

But all this is just what you have to start with. Get on MyDeejo, and you can really start to play. The process is simple—just follow these 5 steps using the site’s 3D interface to build up your dream pocket knife.

Step 1: Choose the size and weight of your Deejo knife. You have three options for this step: 0.53 oz (2.76”), 0.95 oz (3.54”), or 1.31 oz (4.33”).

Step 2: Decide on the finishing of your blade. You can choose between mirror, titanium, or black titanium.

Step 3: Select your handle. You can go with naked, color, carbon fiber, or wood.

Step 4: “Tattoo” your Deejo. The customization tool lets you play with over 60 illustrations so you can tailor your knife to your personality. These illustrations include tribal patterns, art deco, animal themes, outdoor and location themes, and more. Even today tattoos are being added, so check out new designs like "chef," "shark," "corsair," and "good luck."

Step 5: Engrave. Make this blade truly unique to you (or for a special someone) by specifying a name or phrase to engrave onto the handle.

Step 6: Order and enjoy. You’ll have noticed that the price changes with your customizations, so you get real-time updates on the value of your knife. So finalize your design with the 5 steps above, hit “Order,” fill up the necessary information, and wait for your Deejo to be arrive at your doorstep. Then show it off as your unique-to-you EDC.

You can step up your own EDC with the unique flair a customized knife from MyDeejo affords, or you can whip up the perfect gift for that special person in your life. Check out how to customize a Deejo pocket knife with MyDeejo at the link below.

Our Favorite New SOG Products for 2021

True to their name, SOG has spent the last few years studying and observing the EDC space, looking for the best ways to make an impact with a refresh of their everyday carry offerings. They made a splash last year with their XR blade system, and they’ve added a lightweight LTE line to that series this year. They’ve also introduced a new line of bags that mesh tactical durability and practicality with a design that doesn’t attract attention in an urban environment. And finally there’s a highly-accessible addition to everyone’s most carried EDC item: your smartphone, spiced up with EDC know-how by integrating a useful multitool into a mobile phone grip and stand.

There’s a wide array of Swiss Army Knives from watch and knife maker Victorinox, and if you’re looking for one with enough versatility for EDC, the Super Tinker may be the one for you. Its 91mm-long (3.58") medium-sized chassis is bigger than something you may want to keep on your keychain, but its 14 functions packed into a convenient and handy form factor makes it a great choice for all-in-one pocket multi-tool. Two different sized blades cover your cutting and slicing needs, combined with comfortable, slim scissors, which are spring-loaded for easy operation. Also included are tools for handling everyday tasks: Philips and flathead screwdrivers, a can and bottle opener, a wire stripper, an awl, a key ring for attaching the knife to a tether, and even a multipurpose parcel hook. Finally, tweezers and a toothpick slip into the familiar red acid-resistant Cellidor scales that the brand is known for. At 2.96 oz and just 17mm (0.67") wide, the Victorinox Super Tinker is something that’s easy to EDC, covering your bases wherever you go. Check it out at the link below.

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K

When you factor in just how powerful the latest and greatest phones are these days, combined with how much screentime we’re getting during a pandemic, it’s not uncommon to find our phones running out of juice sooner than we’d expect. With the new iPhone 12, and especially the iPhone 12 Mini, you might be tempted to add a portable power bank to your EDC just to keep things topped up. But traditional forms of charging on the go generally mean a bulky brick in your pocket and another charging cable to tangle and fray. Anker’s PowerCore Magnetic 5K leverages the iPhone 12’s magnetic back to provide a convenient and minimal charging solution on the go.

The PowerCore Magnetic 5K is a 5,000 mAh portable charger designed to work with the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. All you have to do is grab your charged PowerCore Magnetic 5K and stick it to the back of your phone. It even works through various cases, provided it has a non-magnetic, flat rear surface that’s not thicker than 5mm. The PowerCore Magnetic 5K will keep itself attached through its magnetic design and provide your phone with a 5 watt wireless charge. With a 5,000mAh capacity, it can just about top up an iPhone 12 or 12 Pro, fully charge an iPhone 12 mini’s smaller battery, or charge 75% of an iPhone 12 Pro Max’s larger battery.

The PowerCore Magnetic 5K features a multi-directional USB-C port. This means that, while it can charge your iPhone wirelessly, you can also use its included cable to charge other devices. You can also charge an iPhone while charging the Magnetic 5K itself at the same time. It will charge the phone first, then recharge itself, topping both devices in about 4.5 hours. And if you’re worried about your device’s safety, thinking you might be putting it through a little too much, Anker has you covered in that department as well. It comes with temperature control, short-circuit protection, foreign object detection and an 18 month warranty.

If you want a tangle-free way to keep your phone topped up with just one click, check out the Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K for iPhone 12 at the link below.

YETI Crossroads Bags for Everyday and Travel

You probably know the YETI brand of coolers for their immense durability and adventure-ready design that make them a great choice for outdoors EDC. Recently they’ve expanded into the realm of making everyday carry bags, filled with the same kind of attention to detail and quality of life touches that make them a great choice overall. Take the new exclusive YETI Crossroads line of EDC-friendly backpacks and duffels: their variety, versatility. and ease of use pair well with the craftsmanship put into making each bag. Wherever your daily expeditions take you, they have a Crossroads bag fit for the job, whether that’s a daily commute or a one-bag vacation off to places unknown.

Crossroads 22L / 27L Backpack

The Crossroads 22L Backpack is a everyday carry daypack built around having your gear readily accessible as you go about your day. It starts with the zippered main compartment opening, which features a unique flip-top vault pocket that helps you keep small essentials ready for the picking at the top of the bag without having to open it up fully. YETI designed special Sidehustle pockets on the sides of the bag that let you store snacks and water bottles without breaking up the clean lines and minimalist look of the bag itself. And for those who carry laptops and tablets, the inclusion of a 360-degree padded dedicated laptop compartment gives you ease of mind that your tech will make it from point A to B (and C) no matter what. While the bag isn’t strictly waterproof, the 700D TuffSkin nylon shell is built to shed most everything except an extended downpour, and it provides a lot of abrasion and tear resistance in the process too.

If you need a bit more space, there’s a slightly larger 27 liter version which builds on the day pack‘s strength by adding a secondary compartment that lets you store more gear for larger loadouts of an extended trip away from home. It also features extra padding in the shoulder straps to accommodate for the heavier load you can put on your back with this on, but if you don’t fill it to the brim it can cinch down for compact carry too. And for extended treks through train and airplane terminals, you can use the luggage passthrough system to get to your next destination without too much hassle.

Crossroads 40L / 60L Duffel

For frequent travelers, the duffel is an EDC essential you can’t live without. YETI’s Crossroads line features two everyday carry friendly sizes with their 40 and 60 liter bags. Unlike most duffle bags on the market, the Crossroads line features a structured build which holds its shape even when fully unloaded. This makes it easy to load the bag from empty, but it also helps the bag stay durable through extended use. The added structure and foam walls also help add a bit of cushion to the contents you place inside from the daily scrapes and bumps of everyday life.

Another useful feature of the Crossroads duffels is the divider panels which help segment your gear and clothes to keep them organized as you move from place to place. That added with the plethora of internal zippered storage areas helps you keep your gear from becoming an unorganized jumbled mess. For times that you’re traveling light, the modular compression straps allow the bag to mold to your gear and keep a low profile, and there’s internal compression straps too to help keep a lighter load from flopping about.

G-SHOCK G-STEEL GSTB100GC-1A

Whether offering exceptional value, performance, and of course, toughness, a G-SHOCK is an ideal everyday companion on your wrist. And thanks to developments in materials and manufacturing technology, many of the brand’s premium options have come a long way and offer a lot more than the resin-based models you may have been used to. The GSTB100GC-1A is one of the latest models to come out of G-SHOCK’s refined G-STEEL line, built with top-end features both inside and outside its ion-plated metal exterior. It’s every bit the everyday tough watch you know, taken to the next level in every way.

Front and center for the GSTB100GC-1A is its robust 58mm stainless steel case, bolstered by highly scratch-resistant ion plating for the bezel, as well as ion-plated gold buttons and buckle for its premium accents. The combination results in some serious wrist presence, with plenty of room to display the analog complications within the gold-accented dial. Along with the accented hands and indices, you also get day, date, and a world time dial for complete timekeeping information. And for even more accurate time, the GSTB100GC-1A uses Bluetooth low energy to sync with the dedicated G-SHOCK Connected mobile app for time synchronization and other functions.

But there’s more to the watch than a bold face and solid construction: many useful G-SHOCK features are under the GSTB100GC-1A’s hood. In addition to the shock resistance and 200 meters of water resistance you can expect from most watches from the brand, you also get a full suite of alarms, timers, and stopwatch functionality. Solar charging gives the watch plenty of longevity on top of its 24-month continuous performance thanks to a built-in power saving feature which stops the hands while the watch is in the dark. And speaking of the dark, you also get a Super Illuminator LED light when the sun goes down, giving you instant information anytime, anywhere.

The G-SHOCK G-STEEL GSTB100GC-1A is a solid statement of tech and performance on your wrist, packed with features for all your timekeeping needs, rain or shine, day or night. Pick one up in five variations at the link below.
