Dango M1 Maverick Spec Ops

When tasked with securing your most valuable essentials, an EDC wallet carries with it the pressure of being durable, organized, hard to lose, and easy to use, all at once. Even more so when it's tasked to carry important identification, like a badge. Fortunately, Dango's flagship wallet, the M1 Maverick, can carry that load—literally—thanks to its bomb-proof design and vertical orientation for easier visibility, access, and handling. And with a new badge adapter and neck lanyard, it's ready for every EDC duty.

At the core of the M1 is a vertically-oriented, CNC-machined aluminum frame. It features loop holes at each of the four corners to serve as attachment points for keys, tethers, or lanyards to wear as a badge holder. An internal metal RFID blocking card cavity holds up to 6 cards, held in place by a silicone cash strap. The Spec Ops version seen above is the M1's definitive incarnation. It's built around the same aluminum chassis, but it's coated with a durable Cerakote finish you'd find on some firearms and tactical gear. Instead of leather, it sports Dango's DTEX material: a rugged, flexible and weather-resistant non-leather synthetic textile. This version also comes equipped with Dango's new MT04 tool. It's specially designed for emergency situations, complete with functions like a seat belt cutter, oxygen wrench, serrated and sharpened edges, and more.

The badge adapter and neck lanyard complete the M1's functionality for use as robust identification display. With the combined functionality and toughness of the M1 and MT04, you'd never be able to go back to a regular generic wallet or badge holder. The badge adapter itself is a plastic card you slip into the M1's card slot, and its partner lanyard is an adjustable cobra weave made from 95 paracord and unravels into up to 20 feet of rope for additional utility. Dual metal loop-spring clasps can latch onto the corner points of the M1, or to themselves for a more compact length and carry.

Dango's usual attention to detail in their designs as well as the highest quality fit and finish make the M1 the ultimate wallet or badge in your service. Be sure to check out the M1 wallet in two colors here, the badge adapter and lanyard sold separately at this link, and the Blue Line bundle that includes everything at the link below.

KeySmart Mossy Oak

Thanks to a disjointed mix of shapes and sizes, keychains are one of the most difficult pieces of gear to manage in one's EDC. But they don't have to be. Smart key organizers like those from KeySmart are able to tame the messy beast, keeping your keys compact and quiet without skipping a beat during everyday use. Even better, KeySmart has three ways to carry your essentials, each specially designed to tackle your keychain depending on your needs, and all them rocking a standout camo design thanks to a collaboration with Mossy Oak. It's never been easier to build the perfect EDC keychain.

For something simple, sleek, and lightweight, the base KeySmart model is for you. It comes with the core features that make every KeySmart useful, including a loop ring to add a car key fob, an expandable design to hold up to 10 of your existing keys, as well as an easy-to-assemble design that requires no tools to adjust or customize. And if that's not enough, the KeySmart is compatible with a whole slew of accessories to expand and extend your keychain's functionality.

As its name suggests, the KeySmart Rugged sports a more robust build, which means you don’t have to worry about daily wear and tear. The front and back plates are bumped up to a thicker 2.79mm each, so you get a more hefty feeling tool, and the removable pocket clip and improved bottle opener provide a welcome bit of extra functionality to your carry. In its base configuration the KeySmart Rugged can hold between 2-14 keys, with extension screws available that up the capacity to 100 keys. Try fitting that on a traditional keyring.

The KeySmart Pro definitely takes the “smart” part of its name to the next level. It uses the same familiar system with two locking bolts to hold up to 10 keys or combination of tools within its frame. This frame holds the key to the Pro's new features. It integrates Tile's smart location feature that pairs with its smartphone app to give you two-way positioning of both your KeySmart and phone. By pressing the Tile button on the KeySmart it makes your misplaced phone ring even on silent, and conversely the app lets you locate the KeySmart on a map, even having it play a tune to make it even easier to find. There's even space to fit in an LED flashlight and micro USB charging port for even more utility. Thanks to an included micro USB cable, it's easy to recharge the KeySmart Pro, topping it up for up to 45 days per charge.

Messy keychains are a thing of the past—upgrade to a KeySmart for the ultimate keychain upgrade. There's even a special deal for Everyday Carry readers by using the code EDC15 on checkout for 15% off your entire order, which you can place at the link below.

Bomber B-2 Nano Blade

There's a lot to like about tactical knives: they're made for in-your-face performance, with zero apologies given. But their typically larger size, their look, and their aggressive features might lead to more trouble than it's worth in some places. There are also times when you just don't want to carry a bulky knife. That's where the B-2 Nano Blade from Bomber & Company comes in. Billed as the world's smallest tactical knife, this micro-sized EDC folder fits tactical features in a compact size. And even better, readers of the site can score one for their EDC at 30% off.

Stealth is the name of the game when it comes to the B-2 Nano Blade, and like its name sake, the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, it's designed for discretion. It starts with its incredibly small size for a folding knife: at 3.14” overall, it's smaller than the blades of most compact everyday carry knives. It's also featherweight, weighing in at less than an ounce. The 1.18 inch 440C stainless steel blade also falls very much underneath most size restrictions you'll encounter on a day-to-day basis.

But its thoughtful design still lets it perform like bigger knives: its reverse tanto shape makes it great for utility box slicing, cord cutting, and fire starting duties, among many others. The combo serrated edge makes short work of rough cuts despite the size. In keeping with the streamlined stealth theme, there are no annoying flipper tabs to accidentally actuate while the knife is in your pockets. Opening the B-2 Nano Blade is a two-handed manual affair, with the three eye holes cut into the blade itself. In terms of control, there's a significant amount of jimping on the top of the blade for fine work, and a solid frame lock holds it all in place during use. The 1.8” handle has just enough length to get a grasp on the blade, and there's a hole for keychain attachment or a lanyard for easy carry options.

Fully opened, you can make out the wing shape that evokes the B-2 knife's namesake. But unlike a stealth bomber, the B-2 Nano Blade slips right into your pockets until the next time you need it. And for a limited time, you can save 30% off on one of these stealthy EDC knives with the code “EDC30” at the link below.

Trayvax Trek Field Knife

Making an ideal everyday knife is a daunting task. From size to shape to steel, there's a lot of thought that can go into making one as versatile as possible. And though a fixed blade carried in a leather sheath isn't a common pick for an EDC knife, if there's anyone who can make one to the highest standards, it's Trayvax. For the past 5 years, Trayvax have been making some of the most popular wallets, belts, and accessories for EDC, and the latest product to demonstrate their prowess with leather and metal is the Trek Field Knife. From simple everyday tasks to rigorous field duties, they designed the Trek with thoughtful details and the best materials on the market to create the toughest and most reliable knife you can carry.

The Trek kicks off its features with its minimalist, CNC-machined design. Its business end features a 3.5” blade with serious attention to detail, such as a 40-degree leading edge that makes for a durable tip and a condensed belly with a sweeping edge for control and precision for even delicate slices. It also comes with a long, 3/4 flat bevel grind that allows for consistent performance when using the Trek for chopping or batoning tasks while retaining a full spine for strength.

A skeletonized handle makes up the Trek's second half, which maximizes its minimalist design. The “cutouts” allow for light weight while maintaining structural strength, and also offer customization by allowing you to use paracord or custom handles to make your Trek uniquely your own. The bottom of the Trek's tang ends in a blunt spear point, letting you poke or pierce if the need arises.

Two of the highest quality steels were selected for the Trek, standard 440C and CPM S35VN premium steel. The more affordable (but highly capable) 440C is a high-carbon, high-alloy steel, whose unique composition allows for precise hardening and sharpening. The CPM S35VN option is one of the highest tiers of steel used for high-end knives, offering exceptionally hard and highly-resistant performance while still allowing ease of maintenance.

The Trek's minimal fixed blade design leaves little room for carry options, but this is where Trayvax's leather expertise comes to play. Each Trek comes with a custom 6 oz vegetable-tanned leather sheath sourced from the elite Horween Leather Co. tannery, which may be familiar if you've ever owned a premium leather wallet or bag. The sheath comes in two options, one with a combo layout allowing for both vertical and horizontal carry, while a traditional layout that allows for low-riding, right-handed carry.

The entire process of making the Trek Field Knife from its materials to manufacturing is 100% sourced in the USA, and backed by Trayvax's 65-year heirloom warranty. Their Kickstarter campaign is already completely funded with plenty of time for you to pledge, with stretch goals in the works for an even more customizable final product for backers.

Toler Tools UNION Modular Multi-tool

When it comes time to pick an EDC multi-tool, there's usually a tight trade-off between features and portability. Minimalist tools tend to lack that one key feature you need, or sometimes cram so many tools into a package so small they're uncomfortable to actually use. On the flip side, tools that try to pack everything under the sun can end up being unwieldy and impractical to carry every day. But with the truly modular design of the Toler Tools UNION, you get a set of full-size quality tools in a package that's remarkably small for what it has to offer. And the best part is that it's designed to come apart: giving you the option to use, and carry, each half of the tool independent from the other.

The secret to the UNION's smart modular design is its unique ability to unfold and separate at the center joint. This allows you to take a feature set that normally requires you to lug around a tool box, and place it in a pants pocket or in a belt sheath instead. The UNION come with a serious set of tools, starting with its stand-out accessory: a self-adjusting, ratcheting OMNILOCK wrench. It's ready to take on large tasks with the ability to accommodate ¼”-¾” hex bolts.

That full-size competency extends to the rest of the tools on the UNION, like the integral spring-loaded pliers on the other side. Then there's the locking 3.125” D2 steel drop-point blade with a large eye-hole for easy one-handed opening in just about any configuration of the larger overall UNION assembly. Thanks to the Union’s multiple hex openings throughout the body of the tool, you can mount the bit driver in multiple orientations depending on the task: a right angle for tight spaces, three different screwdriver configurations, and two positions in the T-handle for extra leverage. Of course, the OMNILOCK wrench lets you conveniently ratchet the bit extender for all those longer jobs. A set of four bits (large and small Phillips, slotted, and hex) come standard with the Union, neatly stowed away in the handle itself. The UNION also comes with two dedicated, locking, pistol-grip saws that'll let you cut through wood and metal with ease. Finally, a locking diamond file and awl for finishing work on your projects rounds out the set.

Despite its rich feature set, it's still manageable in your pocket and even more so when separated. It's especially easy to carry thanks to built-in pocket clips, too. You can reserve a UNION of your own right now at Toler Tools' fully-funded Indiegogo page at the link below.

Dango Modular Watches

When you're at the top of your game, the biggest challenge is figuring out what to do next. It's easy to be stagnant rather than explore uncharted territory, but the thing is, nobody gets anywhere exciting or makes anything interesting by standing still. Now with a long history covering all the essentials in your pockets, Dango has set their sights on their next frontier: robust everyday watches. Built with the same care and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of their popular wallets and accessories, this new line is definitely worth your time.

In the spirit of covering your every adventure, the Dango Watches line comes in three models to match your everyday activities: Trek, Dive, and Chrono. All three watches feature a strong 45mm wrist presence built with 316L stainless steel and sapphire glass, protecting a beating heart in the form of a Swiss Ronda quartz movement.

The TK-01 Trek Watch's design takes its cues from the EDC-favorite field or officer's watch, but with materials turned up to 11. Its face features the style's signature dual 12- and 24-hour dials, with luminescent markings, polished silver indices for the outer dial, and a high-visibility second hand as key eye catches. No expense was spared for its strap, either. It features Dango's new patented interchangeable lugs (with quick-release spring bars) and offered in a luxurious Horween leather strap or nylon NATO style. Last but not least, a 50-meter water resistance and 45-month battery life round out the TK-01's complications.

The dive watch is arguably the most emblematic of EDC—a rock-solid watch with bold features and reliable performance on land or at sea. The DV-01 ticks all the boxes for this iconic style, with a few more thoughtful features added to the mix. Out of the collection, the DV-01 has a hardier 200-meter water resistance you would expect from a dive watch. Large luminescent markers light up its dial, with a date window at the 3 o'clock position and hi-vis yellow ends for its three hands. Finally, a notched, uni-directional rotating bezel rounds out the DV-01's case features. For its strap you have an option for either a metal bracelet or ventilated silicone sport band, both featuring Dango's interchangeable lugs.

Last but not least is the CR-01, Dango's chronograph offering. As expected from a watch in this style, its movement comes with more complications along with the most detailed case of the line. Three subdials are front and center with 30-second, 60-second, and 10-hour hands used for tachymeter and stopwatch complications, paired with a date window at the 3 o'clock position. Both the inner dial edge and bezel feature scale markings, with red accents on key indices and on the watch's main hands, as well as a bright red side button. For its straps the CR-01 comes with the interchange lugs and quick-release spring bars as the other watches, in a leather strap or metal bracelet option. Its clasp comes with a patented micro-adjustment buckle, allowing you to have the perfect fit every time without having to add or subtract links from the bracelet itself.

It's time to step up your watch game with Dango's new timepiece collection, built for any everyday carry and activity. All three watches are currently being launched on Kickstarter at special introductory prices, so be sure to check out the campaign at the link below.

Kershaw Seguin

Sometimes you can take one look at a knife and know it can do some serious work. We're talking about the kind of knife that looks like it can do more than cut open the occasional package in the mail (or for some of us, much more than occasional…). Something with enough heft to get big jobs done, but still entirely pocketable to be your daily driver. The new Kershaw Seguin is one of those knives. This Les George collaboration sports a beefy design with a versatile blade to boot, featuring the kind of ergonomics that make even the toughest tasks feel a bit easier.

The solid build of the Seguin (that's pronounced Seh-geen, by the way) starts with its full-sized 4.25” stainless steel handle. Its length, mixed with the ergonomic contours, lets you get a firm grasp for full control over your work. And unlike most knives that have metal handles, the Seguin enjoys an aggressive machine-etched texturing on the top, bottom, and sides of the blade that make this knife easy to grasp even when things get slippery. The business end of the knife is impressive as well, with a modified clip-point shape making the Seguin reminiscent of a pocket folding Bowie knife. Fitting, since the namesake of the Seguin was a hero of the Texas Revolution.

The 3.1” 8Cr13MoV blade has everything you need, from a solid point for piercing, a curved belly extending to the tip for slicing, and a straight edge for rope and other utility tasks. To match the stainless aesthetic of the handle, the blade is treated with a PVD coating, which also increases its hardiness against the corrosive elements. The large index flipper tab and SpeedSafe assist makes opening the blade an easy one-handed motion. There's added jimping on the index flipper for control that doubles as a finger guard in the open position. And because there's a frame lock in a handle, you can be certain the blade won't close up on you accidentally while you work.

Once you're done with the Kershaw Seguin, close it up and let it disappear into your pockets with the single-position deep-carry tip, a welcome addition to a pocketknife of this size. With how versatile it is, you'll appreciate the build quality as you'll find yourself using it again and again as part of your everyday carry. Pick one up at the link below.

TiPick Micro Titanium Toothpicks

The humble toothpick is often thought of as disposable, something that a restaurant might have for your convenience after a meal. But often times, especially as we've become more mindful of waste, they've become harder and harder to find when you need one. They're useful for not just keeping a clean smile, but also for poking and puncturing tasks in a pinch. If you find yourself needing a toothpick but want an EDC-worthy option, there's the TiPick from EdcGearShop. It lets you pack a lightweight, premium titanium toothpick in a compact and concealable package that fits right on your keys.

The secret to the compact size of the TiPick is the reversible screw-cap design of the pick itself. This allows the toothpick to measure a minuscule 1.37 inches in length before deployment. The titanium composition of the pick allows it to be lightweight at just 2.8 ounces, while being far more durable than wooden disposable toothpicks that can give you splinters in your mouth if you're not careful. They're also more hygienic than keeping a disposable pair around, as they can be washed and even boiled for cleanliness after repeated use.

The design is built to last multiple trips out to eat, and EdcGearShop stands by their manufacturing process with a lifetime guarantee. Just keep in mind, that guarantee doesn't cover losing one of these small picks; they have holes in the back of each one to attach them to your keys so you don't lose them.

With the TiPick, you can take care of your teeth with a bit of style, in a far better way than carrying around a bunch of pointy disposables that will break in your pockets before you get around to using them. Pick one up for yourself at the link below.

StatGear Ledge Pocket Knife

With over a dozen successful product launches under their belt, StatGear doesn't need help when it comes to creating quality designs for your everyday carry. But they still recognize the value of feedback as a driving force for truly great design. Their latest project, the Ledge Pocket Knife, brings the same rugged materials and utilitarian design language of their past successes, but boasts a new set of features specifically requested by the EDC community. The result is a modern take on a classic slipjoint knife, complete with both practical and visual improvements to a traditional design that makes it worthy of any EDC today.

By popular request, the Ledge forgoes any locking mechanism and instead operates as a two-handed slipjoint like pocketknives of the past. It's an especially welcome decision for EDCers in locales with stricter knife laws, like in Canada or the UK. Of course, StatGear made a few tweaks to this classic design to make it more compelling in 2019. The Ledge is still a two-hand opening knife, but instead of a small nail nick, it features a full-length groove on the blade for easier deployment. The blade itself is made from hardy D2 tool steel as another upgrade from old school blades. It measures 2.5” long to give you just enough cutting edge to work with while staying compact and legal to carry in more places and features a flat ground, sheepsfoot blade shape for everyday versatility.

The handle also clearly stands out on this modernized slipjoint. Two-tone, dual-layered G10 handles afford a confident grip, light weight, and durability while the angular design gives it a futuristic look. While you'd typically need to EDC a slipjoint loose in your pocket or in a sheath, the Ledge features a reversible, tip-up, deep carry stainless steel pocket clip. It makes for a discreet and effortless EDC that's ready at a moment's notice. You can pledge for a Ledge in your choice of black, brown, or red at StatGear's fully funded campaign at the link below.

Pangea Designs Prylobite Keychain Knife

It’s no secret that keys are annoying to carry, and while your average carabiner gets the job done EDCers always keep a keen eye out for the perfect solution. With their new half-keychain half-multitool hybrid knife dubbed the Prylobite, Pangea Designs makes a strong case for why their new campaign should be on your radar. The Prylobite is the logical evolution of their popular Pickpocket suspension keychain clip, but this time it packs an even bigger punch.

Besides being a practical friction folder knife, the Prylobite offers a greay way to suspend your keys from a beltloop or pocket for easy retrieval and no more dreaded "pocket bulge." It puts a handy 1.7-inch S35VN steel blade with a gorgeous stonewashed finish right on your keychain. The suspension clip also doubles as a flipper tab, so one-handed deployment is a breeze. The clip flips up through the handle, resting perfectly under where you apply pressure with your thumb, which effectively holds the blade open while cutting. When not in use, the blade is mechanically locked closed via a micro carabiner attached through a well placed cutout in both the blade and handles. The integrated suspension clip alone makes the Prylobite unique in its function, but it has even more tools incorporated in its design.

A good knife is solid part of any multitool, but simply holding your keys hardly qualifies it as multi-functional. That's why the Prylobite also has a few more tools built into the hook's design, giving you a bottle opener, pry bar, ¼” wrench, and bit driver all in one discreet package that fits in the palm of your hand. These tools weren’t an afterthought either, the same attention to detail went into their design as well. For example, the bottle opener was made with a claw geometry to ensure a perfect opening on the first try and the pry bar was added to prevent people from being tempted by misuse that would otherwise lead to a broken knife tip. Rounding out its utilitarian design are scales made of G10, an excellent material for EDC given its durability, light weight, and grip.

While the Prylobite is a great tool for minimalists or those trying to slim down their carry, almost any EDCer can benefit from adding it to their pockets even if it's as a keychain backup to their primary carry. For a closer look at the Prylobite and all its features, check out Pangea Design's seventh fully funded Kickstarter campaign before it ends on Monday, February 25th.

Hammerstone Goods Hammer Pack

As an EDCer, have you ever stopped to think about what you could be carrying in your pants' fifth pocket? You know the one: the curiously small pocket on your right side where you might've used to drop spare change when credit cards and payment apps weren't as popular. If you're not EDCing a tube of lip balm, you should—but we don't blame you. Most lip balms aren't as considered as the rest of your kit and aren't designed with EDC in mind. Hammerstone Goods, on the other hand, are different. They're natural lip balms and deodorants designed for adventurous EDCers inside and out from the ingredients list to the pocket-friendly packaging. If you've been on the hunt for another way to step up your daily routine, the Hammer Pack has just what you need to get started.

While most people EDC lip balm for its intended purpose to prevent chapped lips, you can actually use it in a pinch during your outdoor adventures. In that same spirit of the outdoors, Hammerstone lip balms and deodorants keep it natural. Their lip balms (available in Key Lime + Mint and Blood Orange + Mint flavors) use organic ingredients like vitamin E, sunflower oil, and hempseed oil for nourishing, natural protection. 

Their Eucalyptus + Mint Active Deodorant uses all-natural ingredients as well to keep you feeling fresh during your day-to-day, travels, or camping trips without irritating sensitive skin like other deodorants can. That's because it's free of aluminum, parabens, and phthalates, providing gentle and long-lasting performance. These formulas were dialed in with help beta testers who are active EDCers and outdoor adventurers like yourselves, putting the Hammer Pack through its paces while biking, hiking, skiing, and more.

And because these lip balms were made for EDCers, their pocket friendliness, ease of operation, and ergonomics were just as important. The lip balm comes in an oval tube that keeps a lower profile in your pocket, is comfortable to hold and apply to your lips, and doesn't roll away when you set it down (just like you'd expect from your EDC pen or flashlight). Last but not least, the tube and label keep a blacked-out, minimalist aesthetic to fit right in with any EDC or dopp kit. You can try out the set of lip balms and Active Deodorant together in the Hammer Pack, available at the link below.

Dango Blue Line Tactical Wallets

Blue is the calm, soothing color of the sky, a color that invokes stability and trust. It's the perfect color for a wallet you rely on every day, and especially apt for Dango's long line of popular EDC wallets. Cementing that reliability is their new Blue Line series, which takes their most popular models and gives them the toughest coating available. Not only does it increase their durability even more, but it also gives the wallets fresh new looks while keeping their utility-driven design.

The key to Dango's new hue is Cerakote coating. It's a ceramic-based finish that gives exceptional protection to applied surfaces, and it's particularly helpful for gear that gets a lot of wear and tear (like your wallet) thanks to its scratch- and abrasion-resisting properties. Leading the Blue Line are two of Dango's latest and greatest models, the T01 Tactical and their newer M1 Maverick.

The T01 uses Dango's DTEX fabric, a non-leather, highly durable, and water-resistant material, available in one- or two-pocket configurations. Whichever DTEX pocket option you choose, it's paired with a CNC'd aluminum chassis for structure and RFID-shielding. The metal components are then finished with Cerakote coating. Rounding out the T01's tactical utility is the included MT02 multi-tool, which packs 14 different functions into the size of a credit card.

Dango's newer M1 offers a vertically-oriented CNC-machined aluminum chassis, toughened up with a layer of Cerakote. The chassis features loop holes at each of the four corners to serve as attachment points for keys, tethers, or lanyards to wear as a badge holder. An internal metal RFID blocking card cavity holds up to 6 cards, held in place by a silicone cash strap. The Blue Line M1 also comes in DTEX in either single-pocket or bifold configurations: the single pocket holds up to 8-10 cards total, while the bifold section adds 3 more card pockets to accommodate 14-16 cards total.

Whether you're after a fresh colorway for your wallet or need the extra resistance for hard use, Dango and Cerakote literally have your wallet covered. Check out the entire Blue Line at Dango's site at the link below.

Aviator Wallet Titan One Rugged Edition

Looks trump functionality all too often when it comes to the design of minimalist EDC wallets. Those designs tend to assume you can give up cash and coins completely, and that you can manage to pare down the number of cards in your wallet to a spartan few. But if you can't live without those things, you might start to think a bulky bifold is your only option. Thankfully, that isn't the case with the new Titan One Rugged Edition from Aviator Wallet. It's a slim and lightweight all-in-one solution for your cards, cash, and coins. And with its premium pure titanium construction, it carries light, feels good in hand, and looks great with the rest of your EDC.

At the core of the Titan One Rugged Edition is its premium grade 1 titanium alloy plate construction. Grade 1 titanium alloy is composed of 99.9% titanium, a higher ratio than that found in most EDC titanium wares. Beyond the purity, the use of grade 1 titanium in particular lends the finished product immense corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. It's precision-made in Germany, and the wallet itself also benefits from natural anti-magnetic properties and RFID-blocking capabilities. That means it can help keep your payment and identification info safe from fraudsters and scammers fishing for your data.
With the wallet's unique adjustable inner elastic band and stainless steel bolt design built into the frame, you can dictate just how many cards the wallet can fit. That band holds everything together, and at its maximum, the Titan One can carry up to 20 cards. You can reach each one easily by sliding them up through the cut out window in the front plate and fanning them out to pick the card you need. This design also works well with the optional coin compartment, available in gorgeous aluminum or lightweight carbon fiber. The compartment lets you slot in coins and SD cards for quick and easy access. It easily accommodates cash as well with a carbon fiber cash clip built into the elastic band.

It's rare to see a minimalist wallet with functional options for cash and coin carriers built into the design itself, not just as an afterthought. And with its stunning looks, the Titan One Rugged Edition proves that you can have both aesthetics and functionality without compromise. And if you wish, you can also have the Titan One in carbon fiber and aluminum construction as well. You can pick one up that suits your style from Aviator Wallet at the link below.

The James Brand Folsom

From quick cuts to tough tasks, one of the best tools for the job is the humble liner-lock knife. You've probably seen enough of them as full-on tactical folders or as old-fashioned hunting knives. But for many EDCers, those designs don't quite fit in with their day-to-day lives and the rest of their essentials. That's why The James Brand designed the Folsom — their modern classic re-imagination of the tried-and-true liner-lock. Despite its stylish looks it's no shelf queen, pairing hardy materials with a simple yet effective design resulting in a knife that's ready to get to work, stay by your side for the long haul, and look good doing it. It's a capable companion for the adventurous EDCer who relies on their knife around town, out in the backcountry, and everywhere in between.

The Folsom comes as a more substantial knife, with a 3.4 oz weight, fuller proportions, and a balanced blend of clean lines and gentle curves for a comfortable, ergonomic grip. Its 4” closed length and slim G10 handles give plenty of control and durability you'd want in a workhorse knife while keeping weight and bulk down in the pocket. A large, triangular thumbhole allows for easy, ambidextrous one-hand deployment when it's time to get to work. Its 2.75” blade length makes it easier to carry both in the pocket and in locales with stricter knife laws, while its classic drop point shape maximizes cutting edge to make it cut like a larger knife. Featuring Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel for its edge retention, corrosion resistance and low maintenance, combined with a stainless steel liner lock, the Folsom was designed to truly be put through the paces.

Since the best knife is the one you have on you, the Folsom comes equipped with a beefy 416 stainless steel reversible pocket clip for easy, tip-up EDC. A contrasting lanyard hole towards the back end of the handle opens up more carry options as well. The Folsom's simple format lays the foundation for tons of customization options so you're sure to find a Folsom that fits your needs. You can go with G10 scales for performance and grip on par with modern blades, or opt for Micarta or Ebony Wood scales for that traditional look and organic feel in hand. The blade comes in stainless or PVD coated black, and in a classic straight edge or a versatile serrated combo edge as well. Whatever Folsom you choose, you can get it in your hands quickly with free 2-day shipping direct from The James Brand at the link below.
