A quick Peak Design Roundup

Though thinking about traveling seems like a pipe dream these days – between cold, snowy weather and COVID – there will be a time where we’ll get out. Hey, even road tripping with your family can be done. And if you are getting out and about, good bags to keep your stuff together and organized is definitely key. To that end, the folks over at Peak Design have a few options that could help you out.

Now Funding: Claw 2.0

Amongst the many types of “gadgets” that we like, the ones that fall into the category of “Every Day Carry”, or EDC, can be among some of the most interesting. They tend to be simpler mechanical items (think of a pocket knife), not full of gee-whiz circuits, but plenty of clever design all the same. One of the latest to hit is the Claw 2.0.

Now Funding: Microblade Pill Ti

Do you recall when we first brought you word of the Microblade Pill, back in 2019? If not, it’s right here. When I came across it, I thought it was a clever little gadget, handy for always having a box opener handy when you can’t (or don’t want to) carry a pocket knife. I liked it so much I backed the original, but now they’re back with a rather delicious upgrade.

Shinola + Benchmade = a titanium delight

As you may – or may not – know, Shinola has expanded over the past few years from building watches in Detroit, to all manner of items that could be considered lifestyle items. I’m a fan of the brand (given my connections to the area), but for the life of me I never knew they made knives. One of their latest is sure to catch many eyes – the Shinola + Benchmade Titanium Pocket Knife.

There’s minimal, and then there’s the Smallet

When it comes to your wallet, well, you probably don’t think too much about it other than making sure you’ve got your cards, and probably some cash. As part of something you carry every day, though, it’s worth giving it some thought, as it can really help you slim down what is in your pocket. To that end, the most minimal one I’ve seen to date (other than a rubber band or binder clip) is the Smallet.

Staying Sharp with the Finch Runtly

Not that long ago, we told you about a newer pocket knife company that had come on the scene. We were interested in what they were creating, as one of the founders is the same fellow who’s behind Raven Watches. Those watches are some seriously nice pieces, so it seems reasonable to assume that these knives would be much the same. Handily enough, we’ve been spending time with the Finch Runtly, and can give you our take on it.

Introducing Finch Knives

What’s this, a run on EDC posts? Sure, why not? There’s plenty of things that you carry with you every day, and one of the most useful – in my opinion – is the trusty ol’ pocketknife. I tend to switch around between a few options depending on the dress code of the day, but if you want one that can do it all, this new Finch Runtly may just do the ticket.

It’s simple – we make a compact pen out of titanium

When it comes to what you carry with you every day, there are some basics that we?d all agree on – phone and wallet, primarily. Past that, well, opinions diverge. I?ve got a watch with me daily, as well as a pocket knife and handkerchief. Oh, yes, and a pen, because you never know when you might need a quick scribble or two. Currently, I?ve got a Fisher Space Pen (my second, as I lost the first), but there?s this new project, aptly called the Ti Mini Pen, that rather caught my eye.
