From art you can carry around in your pocket to tiny multi-tools that pack a punch, this week’s roundup has it all.

Craighill’s Sidewinder Knife Is a Serpentine-Inspired Kinetic Sculpture

Everyday carry folding knives tend to follow a straightforward mold. Looking at the market, you might start to think that there’s very little room for innovation. But if you take a look at a knife like the new Craighill Sidewinder, you begin to see some new ideas at play. The two-tone handle belies its unique deployment and locking mechanism. The two-piece handle features a unique interlocking design by Chen Chen and Kai Williams that turns heads and deserves a double-take.

The made-in-the-USA Craighill Sidewinder features a unique interlocking two-piece mechanical handle. In the closed position, separating the two flips the blade out of the handle. The two halves then come together and lock the blade into place. The blade also has a more traditional flipper index tab for even faster opening when needed. Once you have it open, the 12C27 stainless steel drop point blade is ready to get to work.

Redwood’s Can-Am Chronograph Revs up Your Wrist Game Through the Golden Era of Motorsports

The whole point of a watch is that it should tell the time. The whole point of a race is that the fastest competitor should win the event. Sometimes it can be hard to tell who won the race, especially when the competitors aren’t racing all at once. That’s one of the reasons why watchmakers developed the chronograph complication long ago. On a wristwatch. like the new Redwood Can-Am, you can use a chronograph to time events with precision. You also get a stunning timepiece on your wrist that adds aesthetic flair to your everyday carry.

The Redwood Can-Am features retro looks with modern touches. Its 40mm case size, suitable for larger wrists, is a departure from vintage styling. The Can-Am foregoes radioactive tritium lume in favor of Super-LumiNova in low light. The modern reliable 5 Hz Seiko VK64 quartz movement also keeps time better than old antiques, too. You can choose between a black dial, a black-and-white panda, and a silver-toned dial to suit your style. Each version of this tool watch has enough versatility to be your daily driver.

The James Brand Warrick Driver Covers Your EDC Bases, Bit by Bit

We love ourselves a slim pocket tool, and the James Brand delivers with their release of the Warrick Bit Driver. At just 3.5″, It’s a compact offering that packs an impressive array of features into its sleek, aluminum body. The Warrick comes with four of the most commonly used Wiha screwdriver bits, carefully selected to handle various tasks. The tool’s innovative torque drawer design allows you to swap out the bits for those that best suit your needs.

Whether you’re a professional, a DIY enthusiast, or simply someone who appreciates having a reliable tool on hand, the Warrick Bit Driver Multi Tool’s combination of functionality and portability makes it a great addition to anyone’s EDC.

Kizer’s Militaw Is All About Smooth Action, Clean Lines, and Exceptional Fit and Finish

We’ve had our eyes on Kizer for a while now, and this new release continues to impress. Designed by knife maker Jonathan Styles, the Kizer Militaw (which means “hummingbird” in Mi’kmaq) embodies a minimalist and futuristic design, drawing inspiration from the hummingbird’s wing shape and tail tip. Its blade, crafted from S35VN steel, ensures peak sharpness, durability, and corrosion resistance, while its titanium and Micarta handle, complemented by a titanium 3D clip, marries comfort with utility, ensuring a secure grip and easy carry. At an ideal size of 7.99” in total length with a 3.35” blade, the Militaw perfectly balances compactness and usability.

A variant of the Militaw came out this year, introducing a treat of upgrades including bumping up the blade to S45VN in an incredibly unique polished DLC, swapping out the Micarta scales for Fat Carbon, all while keeping the price to a very reasonable $219 despite the combination of exceptional features, fit, and finish. Understandably, people took notice; it went fast both on Amazon and on Kizer’s site, but they are known to cycle back in popular production models when they can, so keep an eye out on Kizer’s socials to grab one for yourself.

SureFire’s Updated Stiletto Pro II is Brighter, Sleeker, and Stronger

The Stiletto Pro II is the latest iteration of SureFire’s popular pocket-sized flashlight series, featuring a slim, lightweight, and ergonomically designed 4.87” mil-spec hard-anodized aluminum body that not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also guarantees its ability to withstand the rigors of everyday use in any environment.
The Stiletto Pro II boasts a dual optic LED system that delivers an impressive 35,000 candela for long-distance illumination. This beam intensity is complemented by a powerful 1,500-lumen output with a centralized beam pattern, which allows users to see farther into the dark while providing ample surrounding light for situational awareness.

This light sports multiple lighting modes, including High, Medium, Low, and Strobe modes, activated through the programmable primary switch or tactical tail switch and stays powered up with its integrated USB-C rechargeable lithium polymer battery. An LED Fuel Gauge allows you to keep track of the battery status, and the Melonite-coated, reversible spring steel pocket clip allows you to easily carry the Stiletto Pro II around, bezel-up or bevel-down.
