Used heavily in military and aerospace applications, titanium is a wondrous building material. And that’s due primarily to its incredible strength to weight ratio. You see, titanium is about the same strength as steel – if not perhaps a bit stronger – but it is incredibly lightweight. And that’s a very good thing in the world of everyday carry, because – should you get some titanium gear – you’ll have the same nigh-unbreakable fortitude found in both stainless and carbon steel, but at a fraction of the weight. That means you can carry more without being bogged down. As an added bonus, titanium is extremely resistant to rust and corrosion, so it will potentially last for far longer than you will. So, the next time you’re shopping around for some new EDC gear, it might be time to consider something made from titanium – like the items in this week’s pocket dump.
Spine Minimalist Titanium Wallet
With an incredibly simple design, the Spine minimalist wallet can carry all your daily essentials without taking up too much pocket room. Just slide your cards and cash into the provided heavy duty elastic band and you can be on your way. It also has a built-in bottle opener, for a little extra functionality.
Quiet Carry Bandit Titanium Keychain Knife
Measuring up at an astoundingly small 3″ overall, the Quiet Carry Bandit titanium keychain knife is one of the handiest things you can attach to your keychain carabiner. It helps that the handle, which houses a sturdy back lock, is made from 6AL4V titanium and is mated to a very strong AUS 8 steel blade, which holds an edge quite nicely.
Griffin Pocket Tool XL Titanium
Boasting over 15 different functions, this one-piece multi-tool is kind of like carrying around with you a fully-loaded toolbox, but small enough to fit into your pocket. And those handy tools include screwdrivers, rulers, stepped hex wrenches, a pry bar, a bottle opener, and much much more.
Seiko SGG711 Titanium Watch
Not everything made from titanium has to look like it came out of a dystopian future. Case in point: Seiko’s SGG711 titanium wristwatch. This handsome dress watch is water resistant to 50 meters, is attached to a handsome three-link bracelet, and is still as tough as nails.
