Last year, The James Brand added EDC pocket tools to its modest lineup of mid-range daily carry knives, such as a carabiner with a bottle opener and a keychain pry tool. Today, the company launched another first, its first multi-tool: the Ellis. Staying true to its roots, The James Brand used many design cues from both the Chapter and Elko — […]
I first featured the Gil-Tek RUK (Rapid Utility Knife) back in September of 2018. Operating with a spring bar lock mechanism, the RUK was one of the first EDC utility knives with a truly one-handed deployment system — simply push forward on the blade with downward pressure to deploy and reverse the action to retract. However, unlike other EDC […]
The brains at Big Idea Design are back at it again. The duo behind the titanium-obsessed company, Chadwick Parker and Joe Huang, have already successfully funded 21 Kickstarter campaigns, so it’s only natural that they launch this new product on the crowdfunding site, as well. This time around, Big Idea Design is launching the […]
Olight released its latest tail switch AAA flashlight, the I3T EOS earlier this year to much fanfare. It’s a small, lightweight torch with a simple interface and a dual-direction pocket clip. What’s not to love? Today, however, Olight is bringing an even more attractive version of the very same light to market, and entirely copper […]
Fenix is synonymous with outstanding, reliable torches. They’re a fan favorite brand here at the Best Damn EDC and on the EDC Weekly, and despite all the flashlights out there, it’s hard not to get excited when a new everyday carry-focused light from Fenix is on the horizon. The Fenix E18R is the newest addition […]
The James Brands makes some of the prettiest gear on the market. Their designs are unique, the quality is top notch, and the materials are some of the best available. They’re typically known for their standout knives — the Elko, the Chapter, the County, and the Folsom. That said, they’ve previously released other EDC gear, too, like the Hook.
It was just last month we were looking at a brand new tail switch flashlight from Olight, the I3T EOS. Now there’s another model on the horizon. Also a tail switch light, the M1T Raider is the big brother to the I3T.
I’m a recent utility blade convert. They’re super compact and lightweight, low maintenance, and come with very few disadvantages. Plus, you never have to worry about sharpening the blade — when one dulls, toss it and pop in another. Honestly, it makes perfect sense for everyday carry, which is why I’m happy to see more love for utility blades throughout the community as a whole.
The brains over at Big Idea Design make some of the best EDC gear around with truly novel designs and, usually, out of some of the nicest materials. (Titanium. I’m talking about Titanium. They love it. I love it. You love it.) They’re back at it again with the world’s most adaptable click pen, the Ti Click.
When it comes to keychain-sized knives, there are normally two ways to carry: toss it on a keyring or let it ride at the bottom of your pocket. Few knives that small come with a pocket clip. A new knife from Relic, however, is different. The Relic EWC knife features an interchangeable, deep carry pocket […]
