Together, black and blue are most closely associated with physical pain and the visible indication of bruising. And while most see that as something to avoid, we consider our bruises to be badges of honor — indicators of hard work or triumph in the face of struggle. There’s also something a bit mesmerizing about the two colors together. Once a faux pas in the fashion world, we’re firm believers that black and blue work together beautifully, and we’re apt to include the combination in our everyday carry — so long as the gear they adorn is of solid, good quality. It’s with this in mind that we put together this week’s pocket dump: a collection of some superb black and blue EDC gear that won’t let you down.

Kershaw Natrix Carbon Fiber Knife

Sleek and aggressive, Kershaw’s Natrix Carbon Fiber is a handsome addition to any everyday carry loadout. And its style is only bolstered by its construction materials — like 3D-machined G10 and carbon fiber handle scales, as well as its titanium carbo-nitride-coated 8Cr13MoV steel blade. It also features a sturdy Sub-Frame Lock, KVT ball-bearing deployment system, and a reversible pocket clip.

Purchase: $70

Arktype RMK Paracord Quick-Release Keychain

Built with a heavy-duty black oxide military-grade HK rifle snap hook and 550 paracord wrap, this is one of the more reliable keychain carabiners on the market. But it also has an edge when it comes to quickness, thanks to a neodymium magnetic quick-release attachment, ensuring that your keys and keychain tools are accessible at the drop of a dime.

Purchase: $32

The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Strap

As if Ridge’s minimalist cash and card carriers needed improving, they did this one up in carbon fiber to make it even more desirable. Of course, it still has all its other wonderful features, like a 12-card capacity, handy integrated cash strap, and still offers built-in RFID-blocking technology.

Purchase: $115

Tsovet SVT-CN38 Watch

With all the smartwatches and ultra-rugged survival timepieces available, we seem to have gotten away from the purpose these devices originally had: to tell time. Get back to the basics with this handsome minimalist timepiece from the makers at Tsovet. It has a hardened mineral crystal and 316L stainless steel case guarding its reliable Swiss quartz movement, and the whole thing is smartly finished with a durable and comfortable nylon strap.

Purchase: $200
