While we hope to never find ourselves in an emergency situation, we also know that it’s entirely possible we could end up in one at nearly any moment. Because of that possibility, we think it’s best to be somewhat prepared in our day-to-day lives. And one of the ways to give yourself an edge is by carrying around a survivalist tool, like the SOG Flint.
Measuring up at about the same size as an EDC pen (4.3 inches, to be exact), this aluminum keychain-friendly device houses a complement of survival tools that can be used at a moment’s notice. They include an emergency whistle, a steel wool tinder compartment, a fire starter, and a carbide-tipped glass breaker. And all of that together weighs less than an ounce overall. Best of all, this survival tool comes with SOG’s lifetime warranty. So, if you were thinking about picking up some emergency everyday carry gear, start with this helpful tool for just $15. [Purchase]
