The right everyday carry knife is both compact and useful at a moment's notice. Designed to be small enough for a keyring but strong enough to use everyday, the minimal Elko from James Brand fits that description. It packs plenty into its small aluminum frame — which weighs only 1.3 ounces and is just 2.6-inches closed — including a Sandvik 12C27 black stainless steel blade and a stainless steel pry tool that also acts as a bottle opener and flathead screwdriver. The Elko has a serviceable assembly for DIY maintenance. Available completely blacked out or with titanium scales, and arrives in a waterproof pouch that just so happens to be the right size for a smartphone.
A versatile tool when you need it, a handsome card holder when you don't, the Dango T01 Tactical Wallet pulls double-duty with a single insert. The heat treated, CNC'd stainless steel MT02 Multi-Tool is designed to fit into the T01's card area, nesting securely and offering hex wrenches, smartphone stands, a nail pryer, both serrated and sharpened edges, and a rope tensioner. When removed, the T01 stands on its own. Its anodized black aluminum chassis has an integrated glass breaker and bottle opener, a black silicone band for cash, and a black leather cover secured with Mil-spec bolts. Handcrafted and Made in the USA.
