CJRB’s upgraded Bowie Pyrite steals the spotlight in this week’s new releases, along with a voice-activated headlamp, sleek pen, and stylish messenger bag.

The New S90V Pyrite Is CJRB’s Best Yet

We previously featured the CJRB Bowie Pyrite folding knife from Artisan Cutlery back when it used their proprietary AR-RPM9 steel for the blade, and we’ve been paying close attention ever since. They’ve taken things a step higher with this new release, now featuring a blade forged from CPM S90V. This premium steel is renowned for its exceptional wear resistance, promising longevity and reliability in every use. The CJRB Bowie Pyrite features a robust button-lock mechanism complemented by grippy thumb studs, making it effortlessly fidget-friendly. Its non-reversible deep carry titanium pocket clip ensures secure storage, with its smooth edges and carefully calculated stiffness providing optimal comfort and accessibility. The Bowie-type clip-point blade enhances versatility, a hallmark of survival knives, ensuring the CJRB Bowie Pyrite is ready for any challenge.

The new lightweight titanium handle adds a touch of elegance and completes the elite ensemble, making this the best version of the Pyrite yet.

COAST’s Voice Activated RL35R Headlamp Takes “Hands-Free” to the Next Level

COAST takes “hands-free” illumination to the next level with their latest headlamp, the RL35R. You get two main LEDs—one for spot and one for flood—which can be used independently or combined for up to 1,100 lumens of output. There are green and blue LEDs for preserving night vision and map reading, as well as for identification and inspection. Surrounding the LED array is the “ARC280°” area light system which contains diffused warm and red LEDs for even more utility. That’s already plenty useful for a headlamp, but the RL35R takes it to the next level with its ability to recognize voice commands. While it does have a full set of controls up top, when activated, the headlamp can recognize commands like “COAST ARC” or “COAST RED” to enable whichever illumination is needed, without needing your hands to fiddle with switches or lose their grip on an important task. It’s an unprecedented feature we didn’t even realize would be so useful, but it makes perfect sense.

The RL35R is all business up front but rounds out its features on the back, which houses a rear safety signal as well as its rechargeable ZX850 (18650) Li-ion battery, along with a convenient USB-C charging port on both the light and the battery itself. With IP54 dust and water resistance, the RL35R is ready for the next adventure, and we’re definitely COAST ON board for what the brand has in store next.

Slice in Style With the New WE Knife Co. Nitro OG

The WE Knife Co. Nitro OG is a premium folding knife designed for everyday carry and tactical use, and comes as a full-sized version of the original Nitro Mini designed by Peter Carey (best known for his Spyderco Rubicon collaborations). This mid-sized folder features a 3.75″ drop point blade made from CPM 20CV steel, known for its excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. The handle is constructed from lightweight, high-strength 6AL4V titanium with a sleek aluminum foil carbon fiber inlay and a polished bead-blasted finish for a touch of elegance. The blade deploys smoothly, thanks to its dual opening system consisting of a flipper tab and a thumb stud. Once opened, the secure frame lock keeps the blade in place during use.

The Nitro OG also features a tip-up right-hand carry pocket clip for convenience and a caged ceramic ball-bearing pivot for an exceptionally smooth action.
