The Milwaukee Fastback Utility Knife presents a practical option that’s been tried and tested by many. The “fastback” in its name refers to its quick-flipping one-handed operation, similar to an EDC folder. Press down on the button lock and flip out the blade holder, which holds standard utility blades. A notch in the handle lets it act like a gut hook, cutting cordage without having to deploy the blade. It also features a storage section in the handle that lets you bring up to five extra blades along. When it's time to move, wire clip lets you keep the this utility knife secure and within reach in your pants or tool bag pocket.

Named after the ferocious Peruvian Isula bullet ant, the ESEE Izula packs a mean punch in a pocketable package. Skeletonized 1095 carbon steel construction and a 2.63" flat ground blade make it a valuable lightweight addition to any survival kit. These handles even allow plenty of options for your choice of custom scales, from Micarta to paracord and everything in between. A black molded polymer sheath completes the package and offers you options for either neck or lanyard carry. And with 7 colorways to choose from, there's an Izula to perfectly fit your survival or outdoors EDC.

At the core of this capable cutting and slicing tool is a 3.39" flat-ground blade, which comes with the iconic leafblade shape and trademark Round Hole opener. It’s ground from 8Cr13MoV, an ubiquitous knife steel that sharpens easily and allows the Tenacious to hit its price point.

This mid-sized knife features 4.5" G-10 handles, providing ample real estate for a firm grip, as well as a textured surface that provides security and control during use. To keep things secure when deployed, the Tenacious uses a stainless steel liner lock which is easy to access thanks to some jimping and a generous cutout on the show-side scales. The 4-way pocket clip gives you multiple carry options, while a lanyard hole lets you attach some cordage for style and better handling.

You don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to get a nice-looking dress watch with the performance to match, and that’s exactly what the Seiko SNXS79K Automatic delivers. It comes with a high contrast design, featuring a charcoal face with silver-colored hands and markers. Both the markers and the baton-shaped hands have luminous paint for better visibility in low-light situations. You get a compact 37mm stainless steel case with a brushed and polished finish like its bracelet.

The SNXS789K’s caseback is transparent, giving you a peek into its 21-jewels Japanese automatic movement. As part of its features within the Seiko 5 line, the watch also includes a screw down crown at the 4 o’clock position, as well as a day/date window at 3 o’clock. To top it off, a mineral hardlex crystal protects everything inside, providing it 30 meters of water resistance as well.

The MecArmy SGN3 boasts a 160 lumen output from its main LED, while two smaller LEDs flanked on either side add extra versatility. A red LED preserves your night vision, while an ultra violet light identifies UV-sensitive items. To power them all, the SGN3 features an on-board battery that conveniently recharges via micro USB in just 90 minutes. It’s all packed into a durable, die-cast alloy body.

Somehow, the ReyLight Pineapple Ti Mini manages to do it all. You’d be forgiven for mistaking this for a custom flashlight. The use of titanium, Nichia 219B high-CRI LED, and even the option to power it with a 10440 li-ion battery are all the hallmarks of more expensive lights, but ReyLight keeps the price within range of $50.

The Ti Mini comes with more than a few features that elevate it even further than what’s on its spec sheet. You get a deep carry pocket clip, a reverse tail clicky where most AAA opt for the easier twisty interface, and the versatility to use a primary AAA (max of 90 lumens) or an unprotected flat top 10440 (max of 240 lumens). It even comes with a programmable interface to dial in the Ti Mini’s modes to your exact needs.

The Victorinox Spartan is a compact to medium-sized Swiss Army Knife designed for a wide range of everyday tasks. Inside its 3.6“ body, you’ll find 12 different functions. You get two different size blades, a can opener, two screwdrivers, a reamer, a key ring, a bottle opener and Victorinox’s iconic pair of tweezers and toothpick. There’s also room for a wire stripper whenever you need to do a quick repair, and a corkscrew ideal for a picnic or a celebration. This fan favorite weighs in at only 2.1 oz, providing you plenty of functionality without any of the bulk. Finally, you can find it in its classic red scales or 7 other different colors, so you can match it with your style and carry.

Created as an update to Medford’s best-selling knife, the Praetorian Scout takes everything that made the original great while adding welcome material improvements. Starting things off, the Praetorian Scout employs a 3.625“ blade made from D2 steel covered with a black PVD coating, increasing both its durability and corrosion resistance. This gives the Scout’s blade composition the resilience to match its signature chunky profile, making it a true workhorse knife. You still get the rest of the standard Praetorian features, including the modified tanto blade shape, its deep finger groove for deployment, and its heavy jimping on the spine.

The Ti Pocket Pro is BigIDesign's most compact pen yet, measuring in at just over 4” with a Parker-style refill and a little over a half inch longer with a standard rollerball. It stands out from the pack thanks to its small size and ability to accept over 80 of the most popular pen refills out there. The key is in its tip mechanism: it's almost like the adjustable clutch on the end of a drill. As you tighten the grip, the clutch clamps down onto your refill of choice. The best part? It gets a just-right fit for a secure, wiggle-free writing experience. On the pen there’s also a beefy, ridged grip section, a sturdy pocket clip, and of course, solid grade 5 titanium construction.

The Hunstman is one of Victorinox’s most popular Swiss Army Knives (and last month's most popular tool) and for a good reason: a rich feature makes it practical for both outdoor adventures and for EDC. You have access to a 3.6" long Sandvik stainless steel knife, perfect for everyday cutting tasks. It also comes with a wood saw, which allows you to cut through branches, ropes, and small pieces of wood when you go hiking or camping. The addition of a pair of scissors allows you to do more delicate and precise cuts if needed.

But the practicality doesn’t stop there—you get 12 other functions to help you out. It features two different screwdrivers, a can opener, a bottle opener, a smaller blade, Victorinox’s signature toothpick and tweezers and even a corkscrew to open up a nice bottle of wine during a picnic, just to name a few.
