After years of fine-tuning their original, Machine Era has perfected their wallet with an even slimmer, lighter model. Made from aerospace grade titanium that's been coated with a black DLC PVD coating, your cards and cash are held in place with an elastic band, and its slim, ultralight profile is ideal for front pocket carry. The wallet, which holds up to seven credit cards, is also RFID-blocking, keeping the card chips secure from hackers. A small opening in the back allows you to quickly access items with the swipe of a thumb or open bottles with the flip of a wrist.

Machined from solid metals with a nearly indestructible clip, the Karas EDK Pen is at once both precise and rugged. It uses a click mechanism and rollerball cartridge manufactured by Schmidt in Germany — renowned for their high-quality, reliable parts — but will accept any Parker ballpoint refill. The exterior is tumbled to give it extra grip, with grooves on the bottom and knurling near the top. While the raw aluminum and anodized matte black versions are built to look great for years, the brass model is left raw and will develop its own unique patina over time.
