We are firm believers that everyday carry is not for the mild manner or meek. Not, at least, when it comes to truly exceptional gear. The things we carry aren’t solely there to help us get through the day, but are also an extension of our personalities and, by proxy, something we like to show off. Perhaps there’s something to be said about the vanity in that, but we’re fine with it. We’re proud of what we carry, as it took a lot of research and careful consideration to get our pockets loaded with exactly what we want. With that in mind, we put this week’s pocket dump together with a complement of big, bold, bombastic gear. If you’re a little rough around the edges and you don’t care who knows it, this everyday carry is for you.
Craighill Closed Helix Keyring
Built from sturdy 1/8″ brass wire, this novel take on an EDC keychain is far less flimsy than your average keyring and, with a knurled screw-on cap, it will keep all your keys well-organized and accounted for no matter on what adventure you take it. As an extra bonus, it’s also made here in the USA.
Karas Kustoms Render K Pen
Machined from solid brass right here in the USA, this incredible screw-top writing utensil is compatible with most Parker ballpoint refills, comes with a Pilot G2 cartridge, and weighs just over a single ounce.
Silver Piston Hobo Nickel Zippo Lighter
The hobo nickel that adorns this American-made Zippo lighter was hand-carved in the USA by Shane Hunter, an expert American metalworking artist. And that handmade quality paired with the unique oxidization process each one of these Silver Piston offerings goes through ensures that each and every one is a singular EDC wonder.
