Everyday Carry: Texas Tea

Sep 4, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

As you likely already know, every state in the USA has a wide number of unique features. Apart from being the largest contiguous state in the nation, some of the most defining features of the state of Texas are its oil fields. In fact, the state has been the leading domestic producer of crude oil since as far back as the mid-1800s. The most significant date in the state’s petroleum history, however, is probably January 10th, 1901 — on which a great gusher of oil erupted from below the town of Spindletop, creating a sensation that would become famous around the world, even tangentially resulting in the creation of a television sitcom called The Beverly Hillbillies. Today, the state is still the largest domestic non-offshore locale for the production of oil — creating upwards of 3.7 million barrels of crude per day — and has inspired this week’s everyday carry pocket dump.

Izola ZYX 6 OZ Flask

A clever tongue-in-cheek spin on the classic liquid-hauling vessel, the Izola ZYX flask boats a 6-ounce capacity, has a sturdy black-finished stainless steel construction, and comes with a reliable leak-proof screw-top closure. You might not want to carry this every single day, but it’s definitely a solid addition to your EDC when appropriate.

Roark Saigon Special Knife

A beautiful, simple, multi-functional take on an everyday carry staple, Roark’s Saigon Special Knife is crafted from stainless steel, aluminum, and gold-plated titanium. And while its stout tanto blade is definitely the star of the show, the integrated bottle opener is a huge bonus.

Ray-Ban Clubmaster Classic Sunglasses

A revival of one of the brand’s styles from the 1950s, the Ray-Ban Clubmaster Classic is basically a hybrid between their two most famous models: the aviator and the wayfarer. A brilliant compromise between the two, these sunglasses are available in your choice of black or tortoiseshell and gold and feature a timeless style that will keep looking good for generations.

Seiko Prospex SRPB55 Black Ion Dive Watch

A sinister color combination adorns this spectacular Japanese dive watch. And while it’s striking good looks and the trustworthiness of Seiko are enough to put this timepiece on the map, it’s helped by the fact that it boats and automatic movement, is water-resistant to 200 meters, and it has a 41-hour power reserve.
