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.

We’ve been impressed with Vosteed’s ability to combine affordability with innovation in many of their recent models that we’ve gotten into our hands, and one of our favorites, the Corgi, is back with some fresh coats of paint to best match your favorite gear even more.

If you haven’t seen the Corgi before, it features a stonewashed modified drop point blade that's just shy of 3", cut from Sandvik's 14C28N corrosion-resistant and fairly edge-retaining steel. The blade shape is accentuated by a false swedge on the forward half of the knife's spine, with a full-flat grind tapering towards the tip that culminates in a sharp and precise edge.

The Corgi is outfitted with Vosteed's patented Trek Lock mechanism, a variation of the popular button-style lock. Caged ceramic ball bearings allow for multi-deployment options for the blade—front, rear, and button flip. The blade opens with a satisfying snap and locks with an equally satisfying click.

The handle is well-proportioned with a rounded profile and ergonomically designed for comfort. It adopts a symmetrical design with a 180-degree rotation angle, allowing the blade to disappear within the frame completely. This design ensures safety and adds a gentleman’s aesthetic to the knife: sleek, non-threatening, and perfect for low-profile everyday carry. The pocket clip is also perfect for ambidextrous carry, with the ability to swap it to either side of the handle and remain low profile thanks to a spacer for the unused side.

The Corgi has become a platform for more colors and materials, and the newest release features Pink, Purple, Green, and Black in G-10 to match the original Micarta releases and give this pup even more pops of color.

What we like: The 2.99" blade length is particularly great for knife enthusiasts who live in areas with a strict sub-3” knife blade policy. The Corgi is also unique with its ability to flip from three positions with a satisfying snap that makes it fun to fidget with. It also comes in a ton of varieties, including the four new colors, all available at an affordable price.

What to watch out for: With 15 colorways (and counting) to choose from, you may find it difficult to resist collecting a sizable pile of this knife.

Final verdict: We found it difficult to resist collecting a sizable pile of this knife.
