Hanks have always been a classic staple in the gentleman’s everyday carry. They have a lot of purpose, still to this day, and if you aren’t already carrying one as part of your everyday carry (EDC) you’re missing out.
I must admit that I find myself missing the Orion Hellcat. I spent about 2 weeks with the burgundy-dialed variant and truly enjoyed every minute with it. The size and proportions of the watch are pretty much perfect in my opinion and I think this design will speak to a wide range of watch enthusiasts. Nick at Orion set out to create a pilot watch with the Hellcat, but I think he did something more than that.
This bag has style. The waxed canvas and leather exterior just looks like a man’s bag. More importantly, it’s built to take a beating and last a long time. Nutsac’s Satchel 15 is a great bag for the minimalist everyday carry but will have a hard time stowing much more than the essentials. A great bag for the thoughtful packer.
From the M390 blade and Titanium frame to swappable overlays and great build quality, Vero Engineering’s Synapse has got a ton of things going right for it. I highly recommend picking one of these up if you’re looking to get a knife that features a unique design in a medium-sized package.
CRKT has some of the most affordable folding knives on the market. The Offbeat™ II is the nylon handled version of its all stainless steel cousin (aptly named just: Offbeat™). The Offbeat™ II follows CRKT’s bread and butter by delivering a well-made tactical knife in a budget package. This is just what I expect from CRKT – nothing more, nothing less. A good knife for a beginning collector.
There isn’t much to key organizers – they need to hold keys, be easy to access, and hold up to everyday use. Trayvax’s Keydex does this plus a little more with its built-in prybar functionality. Pick up the Keydex if you want something low-tech, ultra-durable, and functional.
