Everyday Carry: Gin Rummy

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

Back when Prohibition was first enacted on a national scale in 1920, the whole state of Michigan had already been dry for a few years. And that means that the state’s bootleggers — a veritable inevitability — had already been in business professionally for quite some time. Known as rum runners, these outlaw bootleggers were exceptional smugglers and have solidified their place in the annals of history with their clever law enforcement-avoiding tactics, tenacity, and near-mythical heroics. They’re also the inspiration for this month’s everyday carry pocket dump — a simple, smart, utility-focused collection of gear that balances functionality and style on the head of a pin.

Deejo Juniper Black 37G Folding Knife

One of the most minimalist everyday carry knives ever made — without sacrificing any utility — Deejo’s 37G (named for its near-absurd, almost-negligible weight) is an exercise in functional minimalism. This particular one is equipped with a titanium-coated 420 stainless steel blade and frame, juniper wood handle scale, liner lock, and pocket clip.

Purchase: $45

The Sneerwell Perdition Flask

While we’d certainly not suggest carrying a flask every single day, there are times when it’s appropriate. For those occasions, you can’t go wrong with The Sneerwell’s series of Perdition flasks — built from solid stainless steel with a leakproof screw-down cap, a 6-ounce capacity, and gorgeous etched designs.

Purchase: $65

Shinola Bronze Monster Dive Watch

Imbued with styling borrowed from the roaring ’20s, Shinola’s Bronze Monster boasts a modern automatic movement (complete with a 38-hour power reserve), an ultra-tough bronze case that will age gorgeously with use, and both premium leather and smart-looking nylon straps. It’s a beautiful tribute to the past built well enough that it might end up becoming a family heirloom.
