A good multi-tool is something you should have on hand all of the time. But which one of these jacks of all trades should you buy? Our friends at Everyday Carry have got you covered with five of the latest and greatest, including the compact SOG PowerPint shown here.
Massdrop teamed up with knifemaker Brad Zinker to create a production run of one of his impressive custom knives. We love the perforated titanium handle, which reduces weight, and its 3.3″ stainless wharncliffe blade is sure to get light duty tasks done with ease.
The improved version of Big Idea Design’s Titanium Pocket Tool. The TPT Slide has a new two-stage sliding mechanism, a stronger universal wrench, a removable pocket clip and is made of thicker metal. It has a fork, a cutter, a screwdriver, Torx fasteners and more.
This watertight, aluminum storage capsule isn’t quite TSA-friendly, but as long as nobody thinks it’s an actual stick of TNT, we think it’s dynamite, since it looks cool and holds more than most. Optional bottom caps include a compass, glow light, a tripod mount, and more.
This extraordinarily bright and tough flashlight will never let you down. Its hard-anodized aluminum body is IPX8 waterproof, and outputs up to 1100 lumens of brightness thanks to a powerful Cree XP-L LED light source. Also available with a rechargeable 18650 battery.
Everyman based its upcoming mechanical pencil on its proven refillable pen as well as customer feedback. The pencil has the same durable anodized aluminum body as the pen. It has a replaceable eraser and interchangeable reservoir so you can use 0.5mm or 0.7mm lead.
The Fishstick is a small multitool with ergonomic ribs. Its main function is a wedge/pry bar, but it also has a bottle opener, a 1/4″ bit driver/wrench, and a ruler. It’s made from a single billet of metal or alloy – aluminum, brass, titanium, steel and more.
Regular flashlights are great, but having to change batteries can be a pain. Modern battery tech means recharging can be easy. Everyday Carry shares their selections for the best lights you can juice up with a USB charger. We’re adding that Jetbeam E20R to our EDC kit.
Massdrop has released brass, copper and titanium versions of its popular AAA battery mini flashlight. This new aluminum version is lighter and dissipates heat better than previous versions. You can choose between a bright white LED or a more efficient yellow LED.
This tiny keychain pocket knife measures just 2 inches long when closed, and weighs less than an ounce. But it packs a durable dual-edged blade with a razor-sharp tip for precision and a serrated section for rough cuts. Made from heat-treated stainless steel.
The last thing you want to happen when using a knife is for its hinge to fold under pressure. Our pals at Everyday Carry picked 10 of their favorite folders which hold in place with a frame lock, so you can focus on the task at hand, and not worry about your blade giving out.
This beautiful flashlight from Lumintop features a case made from real brass or copper, and a center section adorned with carbon fiber. It has a bright 1000 lumen Cree XM-L2 U2 LED light source, and is IPX-8 waterproof. Measures 4.49″ long, and comes with a powerful 18650 battery.
Despite its compact size and microUSB recharging, the MH23 can crank out up to 1800 lumens of brightness, casting a beam nearly 1000 feet long. Its CREE XHP35 HD LED source blasts out light, and the whole flashlight measures just 3.39 oz. and 4.38″ long.
This compact pouch has four pockets, offering up space for a pocket knife, lighter, phone, mini flashlight, pen, and more. It can be easily attached to MOLLE straps or other bags using a sturdy aluminum carabiner, and also has a belt loop attachment. Available in several colors.
CS Tactical Knives‘ compact cleaver features a karambit style design, and a 4-inch curved blade fabricated from either 1/4in CPM 3v or 3/16th AEB-l stainless steel. Its scales can be crafted from either sculpted G10 or stabilized wood, custom selected for your style.
