A Hand Warmer, Phone Charger, and Flashlight in One SHOP

In an effort to conserve packing space, we like our gear to pull double-duty, and, when possible, triple-duty. Not only will this aluminum cylinder warm up in less than five minutes to keep your hands toasty, but it can also charge your phone and act as a pocket flashlight. It can stay warm for up to three hours to make winter excursions more bearable, and give your phone a little jolt or the path in front of you a little better lighting. Able to be recharged over 500 times, it’s the ultimate companion for cold months or late night expeditions. ... check it out

The Solid Brass Money Clip Is The Least Pretentious Money Clip Ever SHOP

For far too long, the money clip has been a stuffy and pretentious way to tote around your cash. This Solid Brass Money Clip lends a more rugged feel to the classic clip. Each is cut, tumbled, and bent by hand in Brooklyn and sports a tough machine shop appearance. All are made from solid brass, but the Black Oxide version offers up more of a gunmetal look that will fade with time and use and expose the brass underneath. It’s a more rugged way to carry your cash or cards. ... check it out

Higonokami Mini Knife SHOP

The higonokami knife was originally made in Japan starting in the late 1800s and is characterized by its lack of a locking mechanism and simple, protruding tang. The style was exceedingly popular in Japan until 1961 when blades were banned. Still, a few craftsmen carry on the tradition today. This mini version is ideal for tossing on your keychain or on a necklace or lanyard. The small, handmade blade will always be at your side and ready for the task at hand. ... check it out

The EDC Pen Designed For Your Keys
