CRKT Taps Mike Bond For An EDC Carabiner With A Built-In Folding Blade

Jan 7, 2021

One of the chief tenets of everyday carry is figuring out how to make the most of what little you can reasonably carry on your person on any given day. And while many brands and craftsmen attempt to figure out new and unique ways to manage that, few offerings are big successes. Well, you can put CRKT firmly in the “successful” column with one of their latest drops, the Compano EDC keychain carabiner knife.

Designed by none other than Mike Bond, the brilliant maker behind Ti2 Design, this clever device functions much like you’d expect a solid keychain carabiner to — with a solid 2Cr13 stainless steel construction, spring-loaded gate, and an attachment point large enough to suit your keys and keychain accessories. But it also has a hidden talent: a folding, slipjoint, curved-edge, 5Cr15MoV blade measuring up at 1.42″ (which is plenty large enough for most daily cutting tasks). Whether you want to use this EDC marvel as your daily blade/keychain or you just want to attach it to a pack for quick-and-easy emergency usage, the Compano will serve you beautifully for years to come. Get one now for $50.
