C & T Auctioneers recently held a military collectibles auction that gave a few lucky individuals the chance to own World War II era spy gadgets. Yes, actual spy gadgets. The auction had a total of eight different lots filled with everything you’d need to launch a successful spy career except for a hideout, well cut suit and an expensive sports car. The S.O.E. (that’s Special Operations Executive aka “Churchill’s Secret Army”) Agents Assassination Pen Dagger is a functional fountain pen with a concealed dagger. The Special Forces Escape Utility Knife is basically a precursor to the Leatherman except it had hacksaw blades and a tire slasher blade. There were also a few items like the Assassination Lapel Spike, S.O.E. Agents Concealment Key, Commando Garrote Wire, Protona Microphone Spy Watch Recorder and Royal Air Force Tunic Buttons with concealed compasses that look and function exactly like what you’d imagine given their names.

Whether you’re talking about their knives, everyday carry gear or collaborative pieces, every single thing that bears The James Brand name is built-to-last, incredibly useful and purposefully designed. While we’re incredibly fond and reliant on all of their options, The Elko–their most minimal pocket knife–is our current favorite. Designed to attach to your keychain / EDC with the included titanium keychain, this small but mighty Swedish 12C27 stainless steel blade with anodized aluminum handles is the perfect tiny blade for all your everyday needs. If your EDC doesn’t include The Elko, you’re missing out, so get yours today.
