It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

A pocket knife is one of the most useful tools you can have in your EDC arsenal. But whoever said you’d need to sacrifice form for function? The Kansept Knives Mini Accipiter is a front-flipping, scaled-down version of the popular Accipiter model. It boasts many features and an eye-catching Timascus inlay that make it a worthwhile addition to your collection. Let's start with the blade. Crafted from premium and robust S35VN steel, this drop point blade measures just under 3 inches, making it legal to carry in many jurisdictions. The stonewashed finish adds a touch of elegance and durability to the blade's surface, ensuring it remains sharp and resistant to wear and tear.

The main highlight of the Mini Accipiter is its ergonomic titanium handle. It’s designed to fit snugly in the hand, providing a comfortable and secure grip. The unique Timascus inlay on the handle adds a touch of sophistication, making this knife a functioning work of art. Timascus is a titanium composite that is corrosion-resistant, non-magnetic, and lightweight. It consists of two or more titanium alloys (most often grades CP and 6AL4V) and forms different shades of colors when heated or anodized. Each titanium alloy has the potential to create a new color combination, making each design unique.

When it comes to deployment, the Mini Accipiter’s blade front flipper mechanism allows for lightning-fast blade activation without the surplus tab sticking out from the knife, giving it some very clean lines. The reinforced frame lock provides a strong and secure blade lock-up, adding to the knife's reliability and safety. The Mini Accipiter also features a 3D Timascus pocket clip, proudly displaying its colors when securely attached to your pocket.

What we like: The Timascus aesthetic is something we’ll never get bored of, and pairing that with titanium and S35VN steel is just a winning combination.

What to watch out for: Timascus classifies as one of the more exotic EDC steels, and the price reflects in the Mini Accipiter.

Final verdict: The Kansept Kives Mini Accipiter’s premium materials, standout design, and attention to detail make it an excellent choice for seasoned collectors and newcomers alike.
