Everyday Carry: Menace

Nov 30, 2017

In some ways, everyday carry is just the natural progression and refinement of all the things we carried around when we were kids. From slingshots, to pocket knives, and other oddities – the spirit is the same, even if the tastes have matured. And, truly, that’s one of the best parts of the entire concept. Now, as we have become more sophisticated and a bit less trouble-making, we can see the true potential of the tools we used to use to get into trouble. And we can instead use those things to make our lives easier and more enjoyable. This week’s pocket dump is intended to serve as a reminder that, just because something may have gotten you into mischief when you were younger, it doesn’t mean a modern and reimagined version of that same gear can’t be of great benefit to you now.

Olight S1R Baton Flashlight

Boasting a magnetic USB charging cable, this is one powerful EDC flashlight that doesn’t require changing the batteries every so often. Here, simply plug it in, charge it up and you’re good to go. Fully charged, you’ll have access to an output of up to 900 lumens that will light up the night for 145 meters in front of you, a resistance to drops up to 2 meters, and an IPX8 water resistance rating. Quite the powerful and durable little flashlight here for the taking.

Purchase: $65

Big Idea Design Titanium Bit Bar

All of the functionality of a full-sized screwdriver in a package small enough to fit in your pocket – that’s what you get out of Big Idea Design’s Titanium Bit Bar. This handy EDC tool also stores the 8 standard sized black oxide driver bit it comes with inside of itself.

Purchase: $120

BRNLY SlingPop Pocket Slingshot

Precision-machined in the USA from 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, BRNLY’s SlingPop is a sleek and stylish reimagining of one of the most classic childhood toys. But this version is certainly all-grown-up, as it also features a built-in bottle opener. But, what else would you expect from Lucas Burnley, one of the world’s best knife designers?

Purchase: $140

Zero Tolerance ZT 0095BW

With its harpoon-style blade and ergonomic curved handle, the Zero Tolerance ZT 0095BW is one of the most stunningly unique knives on the market. And it doesn’t hurt that, with a titanium frame lock handle and tungsten DLC-coated S30VN steel blade – it’s also one of the toughest. Oh yeah, and it’s also made right here in the USA.

Purchase: $225
