Everyday Carry: Black Forest

Germany’s mountainous Black Forest region is legendary. The setting of innumerable folklore tales — including those written by the Brothers Grimm — there’s an almost otherworldly quality to the place, making it as gorgeous and alluring as it is frightening and dangerous. And while we wouldn’t call this week’s pocket dump — which is inspired by the famous forest — ‘frightening and dangerous,’ it definitely stacks up as being handsome and desirable. Made from a combination of natural materials, like wood and leather, and those that will age and change over time, like copper and bronze, this everyday carry gear is not dissimilar to the Black Forest region in its beauty and appeal. And you could do far worse than keep it in your pockets every single day.

Spinnaker Tesei SP-5060 Bronze Watch

Spinnaker’s first Swiss-made timepiece, this gorgeous dive watch is done up in stunning, solid CuSn8 bronze and serves as a tribute to the legendary military diver, Teseo Tesei — an Italian naval officer who invented the human torpedo. It also boasts an automatic movement, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a hand-sewn buffalo leather strap.

Victorinox SwissChamp Swiss Army Knife

Purchase: $105

Kennedy Leather Money Clip Wallet

Built from a combination of French and Italian leathers, this beautiful front-pocket wallet has a quartet of card slots, a removable nickel money clip, and a leather snap closure for added security. Handsome, minimalist, and uncluttered — this is the perfect wallet for anyone looking to slim down their EDC.

Purchase: $125

Muyshondt Maus MK. 1 Copper Flashlight

Muyshondt’s smallest offering and one of the greatest EDC flashlights ever made, this copper version of the MK. 1 boasts an output of up to 60 lumens in a format small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. This flashlight also benefits from the fact that, over time, the copper exterior will age and patina beautifully, making this a bit of an heirloom piece of carry that can be passed down.

Purchase: $295
