While carbon fiber seems like a modern material, it was actually first discovered more than a century ago — 1860, in fact, when it was first produced by Joseph Swan for use as a filament in light bulbs. Obviously, things have evolved quite a bit since then and now you can find the material in everything from the structure of motor vehicles, to everyday carry gear, and everything in-between. Marked by a high strength-to-weight ratio, this non-metallic substance is a wonder material that has had a tremendous impact on our modern world — and that doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. With that in mind, we put together this week’s EDC loadout with a complement of carbon fiber pocket gear that looks as good as it functions.

Zero Tolerance 0022 Folding Knife

The smallest knife Zero Tolerance has ever made, the 0022 folding knife is a powerhouse folder made from premium materials but with an extremely discreet footprint. That starts at its corrosion-resistant CPM-20CV steel blade — which measures up at under two inches in length — and culminates in a gorgeous combination carbon fiber and titanium frame lock handle. And, of course, it’s also made in the USA.

Purchase: $250

Big Idea Design Ti Pocket Pro Pen

Made to automatically fit 80+ different refill types, the twist-operated Big Idea Design Ti Pocket Pro is perhaps the most versatile everyday carry pen on the planet. But it’s not just good at housing refills, it’s also remarkably durable — thanks to its construction of grade 5 titanium. For the ultimate balance of functionality and toughness, go no further than this writing utensil.

Purchase: $75

The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Money Clip

A brilliant take on one of the most beautifully-designed minimalist wallets ever made, the carbon fiber Ridge Wallet + Money Clip is a sleek non-metallic ultra-durable cash and card carrier. And while it is super slim, it can still hold up to 12 cards and cash. Furthermore, it also offers RFID blocking and comes with its own maintenance kit.

Purchase: $115

Casio G-Shock G-Steel GSTB100XA-1A Watch

A state-of-the-art connected take on one of the toughest series of watches ever made, Casio’s G-Shock G-Steel Carbon features an analog face under a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protected by a carbon fiber bezel and mated to a stainless steel case. But the neatest part is that it also boasts smart features, which can be accessed via Bluetooth connectivity and an included smartphone app. As if that’s not enough, it’s also solar-powered.
