Everyday Carry: Metallic

Nov 6, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

In a world of ultra-discount imposters and “as seen on TV” snake oil-like devices, finding gear boating simple, beautiful utility can be a surprisingly difficult thing to manage — even in the world of everyday carry. It would seem that, while necessity is the mother of invention (so the saying goes), convenience and availability are its downfalls. To be fair, however, we’re pretty sure that’s all just appearances. After all, while the market is flooded with cheap knock-offs, there are still plenty of craftsmen making worthwhile EDC items to add to your loadout. You just have to know where to find them. Lucky for you, you can start right here with this no-nonsense collection of beautiful, purpose-driven gear.

The James Brand Holcombe Carabiner

Made from ultralight, ultra-durable titanium and boasting a spring-loaded stainless steel gate, TJB’s Holcombe Carabiner is a minimalist keychain alternative done right. And that’s bolstered by its dual compartment structure, built-in pry bar and screwdriver, and impressively-light 0.3-ounce weight.

Purchase: $55

Big Idea Design Ti EDS

For wandering tinkerers, a screwdriver can be of great importance — important enough that you might want to add one to your everyday carry. But full-sized ones aren’t exactly pocket-friendly. That’s where the Ti EDS (Everyday Screwdriver) shines. This foldable hand tool can easily fit into your pocket, expands into a full-sized hex bit driver, and even has built-in bit storage. Of course, its titanium construction definitely helps matters, too.

Purchase: $110

Vargo Sobata 398 Titanium Knife

Designed to be the ultimate everyday carry knife, the Vargo Sobata 398 has quite a few things going for it. For starters, the ultralight handle is made from super-durable titanium — meaning it can take a beating. And it also has a unique sintered titanium ceramic silver alloy blade — bringing the total weight of this 7.1″ knife down to an impressive 2.3 ounces. Yet it still has a pocket clip, frame lock, smooth flipper deployment, and more.

Purchase: $225

Tudor Pelagos Dive Watch

Simple, elegant, and useful — the Tudor Pelagos dive watch is all these things and more. It’s waterproof to 500 meters, has a self-winding automatic Swiss movement to keep it right on ticking, has a ceramic dive timer bezel, and has a case and link band made from sturdy, corrosion-resistant titanium. Put this timepiece on your wrist and you may never want to take it off again.

Purchase: $4,450
