Everyday Carry: Heirloom

Feb 13, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

One of the best things about the materials that make up high quality EDC gear is that they are made to last. And we don’t just mean for a few months or years. No, some of the best everyday carry items have the potential – with kindness and care – to survive for generations. That means that, like the wallet or watch that was handed down from your grandfather to your father and – subsequently – to you, some of the gear you pick up along the way has the potential to end up in the hands of your grandchildren. In this week’s EDC roundup, we’ve focused on some such pocketable items – things that will certainly serve you well as you use them over and over, but can eventually be handed down to subsequent generations for continued use and enjoyment.

Fisher Space Pen Bullet

This all-brass version of the world famous small-format pen, the Bullet – which can write upside-down, underwater, or in zero gravity – promises to age beautifully and stay functional through years of use.

Purchase: $20

The Pocket Runt

This is a pocket-friendly leather pouch that can carry a Fisher-sized pen and a small folding blade – like a Swiss Army Knife – or multitool and has a lanyard hole for alternative carry options.

Purchase: $33

Leather Timex Weekender Chronograph

Balancing upon that line between formal and casual, this beautiful chronograph watch is an easy and functional wear regardless of the venue or occasion and will only become more comfortable the more it’s used.

Purchase: $128

The James Brand County Knife

The James Brand’s take on a classic Boy Scout-style pocket folder is small, but it’s Sandvik steel blade and combination walnut/stainless steel handle is more than enough to get most everyday carry tasks handled.

Purchase: $150
