The latest update to MRF’s credit card-sized multitool now packs 60 survival functions in one, including knife blades, an axe head, firestarter, sundial, wrenches, and more. Made from 440c high carbon hardened stainless steel for durability.
Jolly Roger Knives‘ tiny steel blade is a great backup survival tool, providing a sharp cutting edge that can be used for cutting twine or as an improvised spear tip. Measures 1.75″ x 1″ and comes with a paracord lanyard and a Kydex sheath. Available in damascus for $50.
There are tons of flashlights which simply light your way, but if you want objects you’re illuminating to show in their true color (which can be critical for wiring and other tasks), you need one with a good Color Rendering Index (CRI). Everyday Carry shares their top picks.
A bargain-priced, durable plier-style multitool, packed with a dozen useful components, including spring-loaded needle-nose pliers, a wire stripper/cutter, straight and serrated blades, philips and flat screwdrivers, scissors, can opener, saw, awl, and a bottle opener.
If you need to perform tasks in a dark place, this pocket-size flood light is the perfect accessory for your EDC kit. It’s got both a magnetic base and a pocket clip, and casts a bright, but diffuse 175 lumen LED for up to 7 hours on a set of 3-AAA batteries. In yellow or camouflage designs.
Much of what we buy today is with debit cards, but there are times when we still need to use cash. And with cash transactions come coins. Our pals at Everyday Carry have picked some of the best wallets for holding loose change, like the smartly designed Bellroy Coin Fold.

We love the size and design of Manker’s petite frame-lock knife. Each one is hand-assembled from TC4 titanium with a razor-sharp 1.5″ SV35N stainless steel blade. It’s small enough to carry on a pendant or a keychain. Cutlery Lover has a great review video here.
Our pals at Everyday Carry gathered up the best gear they spotted last month, from useful and beautifully-designed knives, to tools that stow in an iPhone case, to compact and easy to carry wallets. But what we want most is that stunning bronze Helberg CH6 wristwatch.
An extremely durable writing instrument, made from CNC machined T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum. We love look of the grooved body, which provides an ergonomic grip. It takes a Parker-style ball point cartridge, and its cap has an O-ring seal to keep out the elements.
One of the most useful things you can have with you is paracord. This durable material is ideal for mending, hanging, tying, tourniquets, and other survival needs. Everyday Carry have put together a great guide to gear that keeps paracord handy whenever, wherever you go.
A great writing instrument when you need to write in a darkened location without impacting your night vision. This tactical pen has got a red LED for illumination at the tip, a non-reflective metal barrel, and comes with a pressurized ink cartridge that writes in all conditions.
