Everyday Carry: Nemo

Apr 7, 2021

Category: Everyday Carry

When it came out way back in 1870, Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea was a revolutionary work of fiction, the likes of which had never before been penned. Not only did it help catapult the science-fiction genre into the mainstream and solidify Verne as a legendary author, but it also introduced people — most for the first time — to the mysteries of the deep sea. This included, perhaps most significantly, the appearance of a giant squid amongst its pages. And while the great cephalopod might have seemed like pure fantasy to even the most well-educated of readers, it actually has some very real counterparts swimming around in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean — including squids of both the giant and colossal varieties, the former of which can grow up to almost 43 feet in length and weigh as much as a ton (and that’s just the largest that’s been recorded). It’s the juxtaposition of Verne’s epic novel, its fictional submarine (the Nautilus) and captain (Nemo), and the real creatures on which some of it was based that have inspired this week’s black-and-gold everyday carry loadout.

The Sneerwell Sea Monster Perdition Flask

Crafted from solid stainless steel with a leakproof, screw-down cap and a six-ounce capacity, this version of The Sneerwell’s Perdition Flask is perfect for all you salty sailors down there. And that’s aided by the fact that it features a powder-coated exterior and an etched cephalopod design. Fill it with rum, whiskey, or whatever else and it will never let you down.

Purchase: $65

Leatherman MUT Multi-Tool

Designed tough and capable enough to suit battlefield applications, the Leatherman MUT multi-tool is one of the best in the brand’s lineup. It has 14 built-in tools that range from replaceable wire cutters to an integrated carabiner clip (for easier pack attachment) and everything in-between. Oh yeah, and some of those tools are perfect for servicing firearms in-the-field. As if that’s not enough, it also comes with a 25-year warranty.

Purchase: $150

Gerber Fastball Folding Cleaver

A BladeHQ exclusive take on one of Gerber’s best releases in recent history, this version of the USA-made Fastball sports a CPM-20CV cleaver-style blade mated to an exceptional marbled carbon fiber handle. Mate that to a flipper deployment, a sturdy liner lock, and gold-colored hardware and you can see this is a stupendous everyday carry knife that will never let you down.

Purchase: $229

Luminox Navy SEAL 3508 Gold Dive Watch

One of the many exceptional watches in Luminox’s official Navy SEAL lineup, this version is finished in black and gold as a reference to the highest awards anyone — soldier, sailor, or otherwise — can earn. Of course, it also still has an ever-accurate quartz movement, an extremely tough and corrosion-proof CARBONOX case, 660 feet of water resistance, and so much more. This is perhaps more a trusty tactical sidekick than just another wristwatch.

Purchase: $395
