If you use a motorcycle as your primary mode of transportation, you’ve probably come to the realization that your lifestyle requires a different kind of everyday carry than most people are accustomed to seeing. After all, traveling even the shortest distance on two wheels requires a bit more security to your carry – lest you accidentally drop something important on the road. Therefore, things like a cash and card carrier with a chain or a fixed blade knife with a sheath are better suited to biker life than, say, a minimalist wallet or a pocket folder. It’s with that in mind that we put together this week’s pocket dump. This EDC gear was made for motorcycle living.
Silver Piston Buffalo Nickel Zippo Lighter
Zippo makes the most dependable USA-made lighters, hands-down. And while your standard option is great, this one offers a bit more style – thanks to the soldered-on buffalo nickel. Whether you need to light a cigar, ignite a campfire, or you just like having a fire starter on hand, this lighter will do the trick right.
Helle Saga Siglar Knife
Based on historical viking utility knives, the Helle Saga Siglar fixed blade is a tough-as-nails Scandinavian blade built for hard living. It’s not cumbersome, with its 3.5″ blade, but it was made to work hard for long stretches. The blade is made from super sturdy carbon steel and is mated to a gorgeous and durable curly birch handle. And it comes with a premium leather sheath, so you can keep it at your side at all times.

And it’s also made in the USA and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
