Everyday Carry: Burnt Bronze

May 18, 2022

Category: Everyday Carry

Aiming to blend into the environment where they’re being utilized, standard-issue military garments and gear are almost always produced with an earth-toned finish, from classic OD green to stealthy blacked-out schemes to desert-focused coyote hues. Because of these colors’ widespread use amongst armed forces, earth tones often have the ability to imbue pieces of everyday carry gear with a distinctive military and tactical-inspired feel. And while the trio of aforementioned military colors has long been widely used in the EDC space, another earth-toned hue has grown increasingly popular in recent times: burnt bronze, which is also known as “burnt earth.” To celebrate the growing number of EDC items that now sport this color, we’ve selected a curated array of burnt bronze gear for this week’s everyday carry spread.


Designed by Ostap Hel, CIVIVI’s brand-new Ti-Bar is a compact pry bar, opener, and scraper tool that’s made specifically for everyday carry. Measuring 1.70” L x 0.64” W and tipping the scales at just 0.29oz, the Ti-Bar is machined from a 0.18” thick piece of 6AL4V titanium and features a color-anodized finish — in this case a burnt-bronze hue. Sold in a number of other anodized color options, this pocketable single-piece multi-tool also comes with an oversized lanyard loop, making it all the more conducive to EDC use.

Purchase: $27

DANGO M1 Maverick Spec-Ops Edition Wallet

The Spec-Ops Edition of DANGO’s M1 Maverick is a vertically-loading, RFID-protected tactical EDC wallet that’s crafted around a burnt bronze Cerakote finished, CNC-machined 6061 aluminum chassis that’s adorned in DANGO’s own DTEX skin and supplemented via a silicone cash strap. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, this wallet features space for up to ten cards and accommodates an included ten-function MT04 Multi-Tool that’s made from high carbon, heat-treated stainless steel. Mated together using stainless steel screws, the M1 Maverick Spec-Ops Edition Wallet manages to weigh in at only 4oz.

Purchase: $129

Benchmade Shootout 5370FE

Weighing less than 3oz, Benchmade’s all-new Shootout 5370FE is a tactical-inspired automatic out-the-front knife that’s designed specifically for everyday carry use. The Shootout features a handle that’s composed of Benchmade’s CF-Elite material — a rugged yet lightweight carbon-reinforced nylon polymer — and has been outfitted with a double-action thumb-slide, a reversible deep-carry pocket clip, and a carbide glass breaker. The OTF model’s textured 4.71” handle has also been paired with a 3.51” tanto blade that’s crafted from CPM CRU-WEAR carbon blade steel and fortified via a hardwearing flat earth-colored PVD finish.

Purchase: $270
