Everyday Carry: Scorpion

Jan 16, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

While human ingenuity continues to impress, nature seems to have the upper hand in some respects. After all, we do still frequently borrow inspiration from nature in our developments — e.g. cars were originally inspired by horses, planes by birds, computers by the human brain, the list just goes on and on. In a similar fashion, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with influence from one of the world’s most intriguing oddities: the scorpion. Elusive and enigmatic, this arachnid — a distant cousin to spiders — is built to survive in harsh terrain and, when necessary, can be quite deadly. And you’ll find those same characteristics in the gear below. Perfect for everyday carry and helpful in a pinch, this tactical pocket gear will serve you well regardless of the environment in which you find yourself.

Arktype PMK Paracord Quick-Release Keychain

Speed, durability, and sinister good looks make Arktype’s PMK Paracord Quick-Release Keychain one of the best tactical-inspired everyday carry options on the market. That goes double when you consider its handy and reliable neodymium magnet attachment point, 550 paracord wrap, and heavy-duty snap shackle.

Purchase: $36

Dango M1 Maverick Special-Ops Wallet

Made in the USA and inspired by and built for members of the armed forces and first responders, this impressive tactical wallet boasts a 10-card capacity, RFID blocking technology, a DTEX “bullet-proof” fabric exterior mated to a Cerakote-finished aerospace aluminum frame, and a removable 10+ function multi-tool insert. If you want a wallet that can survive the apocalypse and keep on trucking, this one is it.

Techne Instruments Harrier 386 Watch

This pilot watch was originally designed for French anti-gang brigades in 2013. Thankfully, however, it was later released to the public complete with its reliable Miyota quartz movement, anti-magnetic and -shock housing, heavy-duty Japanese crystal, and ballistic nylon strap. As beautiful as it is tough, this watch is an excellent everyday carry timekeeper.

Purchase: $230

Cold Steel AD-15 Folding Knife

Newly unveiled for 2019, this unique tactical folding knife is based around a handle featuring Andrew Demko’s famous Scorpion Lock mated to 3D-machined G10 handle scales. But the ambidextrous lock isn’t the only impressive bit, as it also features an under-4″ S35VN steel blade that makes it compact for EDC but will serve you well through hard usage.

Purchase: $270
