Knives can be incredibly practical gifts. Aside from cutting, slicing and piercing, they’re flexible enough for scraping, prying, stripping and more tasks that they may encounter on the daily. And while some people believe you can’t have both function and fashion in the same tool, the Appalachian Drifter II is set on proving them wrong. With a 2.96“ clip point blade made from CIVIVI's own blend of damascus steel, this knife is as performant as it is aesthetic. The blade is deployed via nail nick, assisted by a caged ceramic ball bearing at the pivot for a smoother action. Once deployed, a liner lock secures everything in place. And while it’s not in the traditional Valentine’s Day red, beautiful G10 maroon scales will give you or your loved one a proper grip regardless of environment.

With a length of 2.95“ and weighing in at 1.2 ounces, the Beta QRv2 remains small and light enough to be added to any pocket, keychain or bag without adding much bulk. Designed for preserving night vision, this particular version of the QRv2 matches its chassis with a CREE XP-E red LED. Using a simple twist interface, you’ll be able to access three different brightness settings, with a maximum output of 520 mW on its highest mode and 50 hours of runtime on its lowest, all powered by a single AAA battery. However, the true highlight of this design is the quick-release system, which allows you to easily snap it on and off the keychain in an emergency without needing to pull your keys with it or fiddle with a keyring.

Of course, no list of red gear would be complete without one of Victorinox’s Swiss Army Knives. While they are known for their iconic Cellidor scales, there’s something that sets the Precious apart from the rest of its siblings. Aside from featuring a classic red color, the durable, yet lightweight embossed aluminum scales with anodic oxidation on the Precious come in a beautiful woven pattern. This not only increases its aesthetic value but it also provides a more textured and grippable feel in hand. As far as the tool set goes, this 58mm SAK comes with the essentials to get them through a lot of frequent daily tasks. It includes a small blade, a pair of scissors, a screwdriver, a nail file and a key ring, making it a compact and functional addition to any EDC.

If like you, they like to stay prepared for any situation (including medical emergencies), this compact tool by Leatherman might be what you’re looking for. Featuring a familiar form factor, the Raptor Response takes on the shape of folding shears made from 420HC steel, perfect for cutting through rough material anytime, anywhere. Since this is Leatherman we’re talking about, they added 3 more useful tools that also come in handy in the form of a ruler, an oxygen tank wrench and a ring cutter. Differing from the original Raptor, the Response comes in more compact at 5.5 ounces and 4.3“ while fully folded. Aside from adding a handsome appearance, the red colorway also make the shears easy to identify as a medical item wherever they’re stored, or in case they’re dropped in an emergency.

It takes the write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen refill, Monteverde Ballpoint, as well as the Parker Gel and Ballpoint cartridges. The included refill sizing kit also allows it to use Bic Gel, Uniball Jetstream, and Pilot G-2 refills. And of course, the familiar 145mm-long form factor, well-balanced 1-ounce aluminum body, grooved grip section, and heavy-duty bolt-on pocket clip make it a solid option for daily pocket carry and long writing sessions.

When designing the Thirteen, Able Carry was trying to craft a bag that could “do it all” while remaining as minimal as possible, and they hit the nail right on the head. As its name suggests, the Thirteen features 13L of space divided into a main compartment, a front access panel, and a tucked back pocket. The main compartment has enough room to fit most 13“ laptops and tablets, and features organizational options built in to help you keep your smaller items in order. Thanks to its X-Pac construction the bag remains weather resistant, abrasion resistant, and light at only 1.3 pounds. Curved chest straps for comfort and additional side hooks for attaching extra gear round out its features. Get it in a striking Port Red colorway to help them stand out from the crowd.
