We’re just gonna come right out and say it - your carry needs some color!
Gone are the days of monochrome-only gear dumps! With 2022 we are ushering in a brighter palette. You don’t have to go all-in at once–we will show you how to use a few pieces to play off your already epic neutral carry. Plus, you deserve to buy yourself a gift this holiday season.
Here are some must-have EDC items with plenty of colors for yourself, and your loved ones.
Justin Koch’s best-selling custom friction folder, the Gnat, has been adapted into the Urban EDC Gnat-S XL, and the $199 price tag is only available until the end of 2021! This double-detent, non-locking folder boasts an M390 steel blade and bottle opener. The Urban EDC Gnat-S XL is the ultimate EDC Blade, with its non-locking blade making it legal in most cities. The titanium hardware and pocket clip will keep this beauty in place and lightweight. Plus, with scale offerings like purple anodized aluminum and orange g10, this fidget-friendly folder will add the perfect hue to your carry.
Purple, Red, Blue, and Green? Yea, those are just a few of the color offerings put out by Prometheus Lights in their Beta-QR V2 lineup. We’ve definitely got a color for everyone. Purple (UV) for our detectives in the making, red for those that don’t want to disturb their night vision, and blue, well, because why not!? Light up the stockings this year with a reliable and strong flashlight. Prometheus Lights has been proving for years–that the dark sucks, and you should do something about it! (Psst, if I may, I would suggest pairing the purple UV lightwith your purple anodized Urban EDC Gnat-S XL, Black with Orange G10, and redwith the OD Green Micarta.
There are so many lists this time of year, and you can’t write a good list without a good pen. That’s where we rely on Tactile Turn and their incredible writing utensils to add both wonderful function and stunningly good looks to our carry... First choice: Pen or Pencil. That’s right–TT makes both, so you can customize your writing experience down to the very internals. Next, choose your favorite material (may we suggest zirc to complement an all-black carry or copper to add a bit of color). Then pick your size and be on your merry way. You will be cranking out pages of lists in no time, and looking good doing it!
Whether you’re looking for a second blade or a petite backup blade, the Urban EDC Baby Barlow has your fifth pocket needs covered, and then some. With a traditional barlow shape, this nostalgia-gripping front flipper will make a splash in your carry. With a deep carry clip and subtle jimping, this tiny liner-lock will get the job done without drawing any unwanted attention. Not to mention it will remind you exactly what you love about old-time knife patterns and modern technologies. Grab it in Jade G10 to compliment a blacked-out carry, or go with the Orange and Green G10 with a muted titanium carry. We can’t wait to see your combos!
It's time to say goodbye to your super-thick dad wallet, that is if you haven't cut up your credit cards after all that gift buying. The Anso Matrix Credit Card Holder is the EDC way to keep your cards organized and accessible. It's compact and lightweight, holding up to 6 cards. Don't worry either: there's 3 colors to pair well with your existing neutral and louder tones in your carry. Cobalt, Cuprum, and Grey titanium variants are all CNC milled into a lightweight skeletal frame. The Anso Matrix uses a top-facing tensioned titanium spring; try saying that five times fast!
