Although we can’t predict the weather, we can predict that whatever rain we endure will fortunately produce some lush greenery around us. This year, some parts of the country have experienced the hardest rainfall in history. However, it’s important to remind ourselves to look forward to the natural beauty these torrential downpours will yield, hopefully soon. This week’s EDC loadout is inspired by the grass and shrubbery that owes its gratitude to the rain.
Graphic Image On the Green Scorecard
Nothing evokes the smell of freshly-cut grass like a round of golf. From one of our favorite printing brands, this On the Green pocket scorecard measures just 3” x 5” and features enough pages for 56 rounds of golf. After all, it’s difficult to improve your game if you can’t see your progress. Sporting a classic look and feel, this notebook also happens to be masterfully constructed with full-grain leather and Smyth-sewn acid-free paper with gilt edges. If you’re giving this as a gift, you can have the book personalized as well.
Stilform Ballpoint Pen
Celebrating its 10th year of operation, Stilform is a Hamburg-based pen company that makes high-end writing utensils that perform exactly how you want them to. Launched via Kickstarter a few years back, the brand’s aluminum Ballpoint Pen is the first in the world to use magnets to deploy its tip. Fitting nicely in your hand and still giving you that pleasing clicking sound, the pen features a cap that “unlocks” and remains open via a strong neodymium magnet.
Benchmade Osborne 9400 Automatic Knife
Benchmade’s iconic Osborne 940 couldn’t have gotten much better. However, in 2020, the revered knife maker unveiled an automatic version, dubbed the 9400. With a push-button release to replace the Axis lock, the 9400 features a larger pivot and, at 2.65oz, weighs slightly less than the 940. Rounding out the specs are the reverse tanto blade made of CPM S30V satin-finished stainless steel and a green anodized 6061 aluminum handle.
Longines HydroConquest Green
Few dive watches stand out on your wrist like Longines’ HydroConquest, a vintage-inspired model from its Heritage line, featuring a ceramic bezel insert that matches the attractive matte green dial. Both stylish and technically focused, the watch sports a 41mm stainless steel case that boasts 300m of water resistance, the diver houses an in-house caliber L888 automatic movement and is adorned with a green knurled rubber strap.
