Chris Lefteri’s FixIts is a moldable plastic with a variety of uses. Simply dunk it in hot water then mold it according to your needs. Once it hardens, you can cut, drill and sand it. You can even drop it in hot water again to reuse it. It’s also biodegradable so it’s easy to dispose of.
Rexford Knives partnered with Gallantry to create a special edition of its RUT utility blade multitool. The RUT V3 has a titanium body. It comes with a black blade but fits standard boxcutter blades. It also has a screwdriver, a bit driver, a bottle opener and a pry bar.
While folding knives are convenient to carry in your pocket, fixed blade knives generally offer greater stability, leverage, and fewer points of failure. So if you don’t mind wearing a waist sheath, these blades are worth a look. Everyday Carry picks 10 of the best and newest designs.
