WE Knife Co. Celebrates 10 Years with Limited Edition Releases and Huge Sale

It’s been 10 years since WE Knife Co. entered the scene (and 24 years since its founding in 2000), showing the world that they could stand toe to toe with the very best knife manufacturers, and this year they’re celebrating the milestone with re-releases of their iconic knives, as well as a massive sale and commemorative promotion for many of their CIVIVI knives.

The two knives leading the anniversary are the CIVIVI Elementum in a special Jungle Wear Fat Carbon Fiber colorway built just for the anniversary, and the 601X, a re-engineering of one their early and popular models, the 601. Both are dressed in premium iterations, with the Elementum packing S35VN for its blade and the 601X with 20CV across four titanium-handled colorways. Each of the 601X models is limited to 150 pieces and comes with a custom serial number and certificate of authenticity, so these surely will be the first to go.

There’s also plenty to see in the CIVIVI sale, with up to 51% off across a ton of models like the Conspirator, Sentinel Strike, Synergy3, and the Voltaic.

The 10th Anniversary event is ongoing on both WE and CIVIVI websites (where you can claim promotions like a giveaway, commemorative shirt, and coin), and other partnered retailers like Amazon, and runs through to April 18th.

Big Idea Designs Unveil Their Very First Fixed Blade Knife The “The Lookout”

Big Idea Design has stepped into new territory with their very first fixed blade knife, the Lookout. As their 47th Kickstarter project, this little gem packs a punch in a small package. This knife was named after the iconic Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN and was designed in collaboration with their CNC shop manager Mak Kelsay, ABS Journeyman Smith.

With a modest 2.2” blade and an overall length of 6.2”, the standard model is equipped with a M390 Steel Blade while the USA line features a MagnaCut Steel blade. The Grade 5 Titanium scales offer both durability and style, with options like Ultem, Tigerwood, or Black G10 to suit your taste. What’s truly impressive about this new drop is the attention to detail, from the custom-made lanyard screw to the center-mounted clip, providing a comfortable and secure carry experience. And let’s not forget the added flexibility of two included Kydex sheaths, allowing you to customize your carry setup. For Big Idea Design fans and knife enthusiasts alike, the Lookout Fixed Blade Knife is a must-have addition to any collection.

AceBeam’s Terminator M2-X Illuminates the Dark With Its Lumen Output, Long Throw Distance, and Multi-Functional Modes

With modern everyday carry flashlights, you don’t have to be limited to a regular light’s traditional cylindrical design and single-head emitter output. Take the new AceBeam Terminator M2-X torch, for example. It takes its design cues from what you might find on a tactical weapon light customarily mounted on a rifle and shrinks that power and unique versatility into a more compact package that fits your hand. The flat design of the AceBeam Terminator M2-X is thanks to its standout feature: the multi-source design, which gives you a combination spotlight, floodlight, and auxiliary light in one pocketable body, all without having to carry multiple lights to get the job done. While the AceBeam might lack the infrared (IR) illuminator or the laser designator, it maximizes its footprint to give you a rich feature set even if you consider yourself as decidedly non-tactical.

If you look down the barrel of the flashlight with the power turned off for safety, you’ll see the advantage of the multi-source design. On one side of the flat-bodied light is the flood light, which comes out to a max of 3200 lumens out the front with the Cool White 6500K version of the light. The high-CRI edition knocks it down for 2000 lumens but retains better rendering of colors, especially at a distance for quick identification. The RGB auxiliary lights are on the periphery of the floodlight section, which gives you additional color options. Handy is the red light, which is better for low-light situations if you don’t wish to ruin your night adaptation. On the other side is the spotlight, which throws the light out farther, up to 500 meters. Each of these functions usually features om individual flashlights, but the draw of the AceBeam M2-X is being able to pack just one device for your loadout, and it strikes a unique path in the pocketable everyday carry flashlight space that deserves some consideration.

Mystery Ranch’s Radix Packs Set the Standard for Lightweight Stability

Lightweight bags have recently become more popular for everyday carry, but the ones available today tend to be unstructured when they are not filled to the brim with gear. Bags like the updated Radix line from Mystery Ranch buck that trend by combining lightweight technical materials with a structured frame that holds the bag’s shape regardless of the load carried inside. The new Radix series from Mystery Ranch was made for people who climb up mountains and cliffs regularly, but the need for lightweight and stable packs can benefit anyone who opts for a quality bag or pack for their own everyday carry missions. The Radix series from Mystery Ranch comes in three different capacities, but for everyday carry use, we will focus on the 31 liter version of the bag.

Its two key features are the lightweight 100D Robic recycled ripstop n
ylon fabric shell and the removable aerospace aluminum frame that helps this hiking and climbing bag hold its shape. It has a top flap buckled construction with an off-center main zipper for accessing the main compartment for your carry convenience. The bag features hydration bladder compatibility, but unlike Mystery Ranch’s dedicated urban everyday carry bags, there is minimal padding in this pack. Lightweight movement and freedom, as well as harness comfort, were at the top of the list of Mystery Ranch’s crafters when they made the Radix line, and that unique approach can make them great for everyday carry even if you don’t climb up big rocks regularly.

Danner’s Moc 917 with GORE-TEX, a Huckberry Exclusive

It’s easy to focus on what’s in your pockets or your pack when it comes to everyday carry, but having the right shoes for your travels both near and far is a critical component often overlooked. As someone who’s overlooked having comfortable shoes in the past, it’s better to discover the benefits of having great shoes before you discover the painful aftermath of having the wrong ones on your feet after a long hike. One of the most comfortable shoes you can buy is based on the venerable Moccasin pattern, and Danner has teamed up with our friends at Huckberry to provide a modern interpretation of this comfortable shoe with modern touches that make it an excellent choice for daily wear.

The original water moccasin was woven from tanned leather skins by Native Americans in what is now the United States. Danner has a rich history dating back decades, taking that woven design that offers comfort in the front toe box and turning it into a working boot. In its latest incarnation in collaboration with Huckberry, Danner has updated their Moc 917 from the 1960s with a mix of leather and GORE-TEX liner to provide excellent waterproofing while keeping a heritage look. And where old moccasins had a smooth leather sole, Danner’s new Moc 917 comes with a lightweight Vibram SPE sole for added grip on wet and slippery surfaces. With a 365-day warranty and eligibility for Danner’s recrafting services, you can rely on this boot for all your travels in the years to come.
