Everyday Carry: Lefty

Aug 5, 2020

Category: Everyday Carry

It’s estimated that only 10% of the world’s population consists of left-handed people. As a result, getting gear of any kind — including everyday carry, instruments, technology, etc. — with a left-hand-oriented format exceedingly difficult to find. Even when you can find it, many brands jack up the price of lefty-friendly gear due to manufacturing difficulties. Perhaps this is punishment doled out by right-handed folks jealous of the possibility that lefties are more creative or even smarter — but perhaps not. Whatever the case, left-handed people are not without hope when it comes to acquiring superb EDC gear, as there are plenty of noteworthy brands that build either lefty-specific or ambidextrous gear. In fact, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with that very idea in mind.

Big Idea Design 10-In-1 Titanium Pocket Tool

Crafted from aerospace-grade titanium, this exceptional pocketable multi-tool — which is ambidextrous in its operation, no less — boasts a whopping 10+ functions into its form. That includes a removable 420 stainless steel removable and replaceable razor, bottle opener, drivers, hex bit driver slot, measurement cues, and 15 socket sizes (amongst other inclusions). Best of all, if you remove the razor, it’s fully TSA-compliant.

Purchase: $80

Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Left Handed Knife

The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 — with its CPM-S30V steel leaf-shaped blade, G10 handles, and the brand’s iconic and incomparable Compression lock — is one of the most significant tactical folding knives ever to be produced. Thankfully, the brand also had the wherewithal to craft it in a lefty-friendly format — without sending the price skyrocketing, no less.

Purchase: $152

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet

Let’s be frank: most wallets are ambidextrous — it would be strange if they weren’t. So the Dango T02 Titanium isn’t on here because of that, but rather because it’s an exceptional addition to any everyday carry loadout. Boasting a titanium frame, premium leather exterior, integrated silicone cash strap, a 16-card capacity, and a removable MT02 multi-tool insert (which is ambidextrous itself), this USA-made wallet is one of the best tactical minimalist options around.

Purchase: $199

Tudor Pelagos LHD M25610TNL-0001 Watch

The difference between a right-handed watch and a left-handed one is solitary but impactful. You see, it’s the placement of the crown — which, when right-handed, can dig into the flesh of a left-handed wearer. As such, the Tudor Pelagod LHD you see here has its crown on the other side. Of course, it also still has a reliable automatic movement, a titanium and steel case, a rotating dive timer bezel, and a 500m water-resistance rating.

Purchase: $4,575
