Taking the world by storm, it's the sailor's life for us!
Today, we're thrilled to bring you something special that we have been working on just for you (well, and us, because this is a true labor of love). Presenting the Urban EDC F5.5 – designed alongside our friend and custom knifemaker extraordinaire, Jesper Voxnaes. We couldn't ask for more, or better.
Inspired by the endless versatility of a sailor's knife and based on the highly sought-after custom Vox F5, the Urban EDC F5.5 hits the sweet spot between Jesper's minimalistic sensibilities and his mastery of maximizing a blade's functionality.
Designed with exploration in mind, the Urban EDC F5.5 is smaller and more compact than the custom Vox F5 and equipped with a stout 2.7" Elmax blade steel with the iconic Vox modified sheepsfoot shape.
Intentionally robust, the blade stock is 4mm thick, which gives it outstanding strength and stability. Paired with the impeccably flat-ground cutting edge, the Urban EDC F5.5 excels at everything from slicing and precision work to chopping, piercing, and other heavy-duty chores that other blades shy away from.
Inspiring maximum confidence in hand, the lightweight Carbon Fiber handles are gently contoured and designed to fill your hand – yet possess enough affordance to be held and handled in a variety of ways.
For example, the Urban EDC F5.5 comes with a generous finger choil that allows you to choke up on the blade for maximum leverage and control – which is especially useful for precision and detailed cuts.
Flawlessly functional, impressively compact, and beautiful to hold and behold – the Urban EDC F5.5 offers up all the performance and attention to detail of a custom blade without the need to break the bank. To top it off, there will be a minimalistic Vox / Urban EDC compass collaboration logo to celebrate this highly anticipated release.
And if we may say so ourselves, the Urban EDC F5.5 might just be Jesper's best design yet – and we are pretty darn confident that you will agree once you get this bad boy in hand. So, what are you waiting for? Grab this while you can before they sell out!
