Everyday Carry: Blue Velvet

Presented by

In the vast world of prototypical slasher films, it’s easy to overlook more avant-garde horror flicks around this time of year. For example, take Blue Velvet, a mystifying, psychosexual cult classic from the mind of Oscar winner David Lynch that’s arguably as eerie as anything you’ve watched all October. While it’s hard to find actual blue velvet products, we figured we’d do the film justice by abiding by its color of choice for this week’s EDC loadout.

Kershaw’s brand-new Lucid knife is streamlined, sturdy, and ready to serve as an excellent addition to your loadout. It is comprised of a textured glass-filled nylon handle and an 8Cr13MoV stainless steel clip-point blade that’s impressively simple to re-sharpen. Most importantly, it opens quickly and effectively thanks to the brand’s built-in flipper and assisted opening.

BELL & ROSS BR 05 Automatic Chronograph 40mm

We’ve never met a Bell & Ross model we didn’t like, and this remarkably intricate option boasts 25 jewels to show why that’s the case. The French horologist’s Swiss-made automatic movement offers a lengthy, 42-hour power reserve, but what’s on the surface is arguably even more impressive, primarily thanks to its gorgeous, sunray-brushed blue dial.
