Here’s a quick look at 3 new knives from Gerber that I’ve been EDCing and that I’ve liked. In the last few years Gerber has put out a lot of new smaller, folding knives, but these 3 have been the winners for me. 2 are budget-friendly and one is
Basu contacted me and offered to sponsor a review of their
eAlarm +. Having seen one like this in the past, I thought yeah, let's see what's new about this one. Pretty cool little item and for only $16, it's really worth checking out.

In this video we are looking at the Thrunite TH30 and the Nitecore HC33. Both were solid lights, both are convertible so they can become an EDC light for you, and there were actually features from each on that I liked. Check out the video and see if
This is the first unboxing I've done for the PMP Prep Box and I gotta say his tagline about no fillers seems to be spot on. This box was only $100 and I think it's a SOLID box. Cooking gear from the Pathfinder Store, Mountain House meals, and
The Kizer S.L.T. is a large EDC knife that will grab some attention. At 8.5 inches, it's not small and as you'll see it reminds me of a few different 'organic looking' knives I've seen in the past. Large, EDC, not for the woods but this knife worked
I have liked the Sheepdog knives since I first saw them, but I was wondering if they were actually usable as EDC knives. As you will see in this video, I think they are actually quite functional and the look is so cool. Check out the video and
I got it, I tested it, and I like it. The Thrunite TH30 headlamp is going to give you over 3000 lumens of output at the highest setting, but even at around 1000 lumens you'll get over 1.5 hours of run time. The fact that it can convert to
The Kizer Little River Bowie is a cool, compact fixed blade that I was interested in as soon as I saw it. 1095 is your steel and it's compact and comes with a kydex sheath. Overall, I haven't used this thing a ton yet, but from what I've
The Kizer Feist is a unique-looking knife with a pretty unique deployment mechanism as well. With S35VN steel and a very unique front-flipper design, this thing is going to be great for some and a 'no thanks - too different' for others. Either way, check out the video
The Maxpedition Riftblade is the bigger brother to the Riftpoint that I reviewed recently. This one holds quite a lot of gear as you'll see in this video, and it also served me well as a bag for travel - check it out!

Fixed blade OR Folder for your everyday carry - which one? In this video we look at these 2 options and consider the ESEE Izula and the ESEE Zancudo. I like both and honestly I am still undecided on which one I like more for EDC. Check
The Gerber Index is a budget-friendly EDC knife that offers you a little pop of color. The steel is budget, the design seems solid so far, and over all - I've liked EDCing it. Check it out over at SMKW.com

Cool new knife from a new (to me) company. The Blade Runner Systems Minuteman knife is a sleek, urban/industrial looking EDC blade with S35VN steel that I think you'll be seeing in my EDC rotation. These guys are a part of the knife community so I look forward
Hunt Vault's latest box is all about moving and concealment. As I always note, I am way more of an outdoorsman than a hunter, but I find so much of the gear in the Hunt Vault Elite box is helpful for me. The bag in this box -

The new Vanquest Katara stood out to me at Shot Show 2018 because I am always looking to find new and innovative features in everyday carry (EDC) gear. This bag has a ton of organization and also allows you to convert it from a backpack to a sling bag
I’m always interested in checking out new survival kits, so when Wandering Raven contacted me, I was intrigued by this budget-friendly kit. It has the basics that will keep you alive if you have a decent skill set in the woods. I would swap out a couple items for other
I'm LOVIN' this light - the new Olight i1R EOS is now my favorite keychain flashlight, giving 130 lumens of output. And it weighs in at .42 oz. and measures just under 1.5 inches long. Check it out!

Fitorch - I've now tested out 3 of their lights and so far - no too shabby. This light, the M30R, offers up to 1800 lumens, is a definite thrower, and it can charge up your USB-compatible devices. Pretty cool - check it out and tell me what
A motion-sensor headlamp is a cool product to have, especially if you're in a situation where you need or want to keep your gloves on at all times. The Olight H16 seems to be a solid light, giving you 500 lumens of output. The win of this one
In my view, the medical side of everyday carry and survival is too often under-rated. Well, Wild Hedgehog Tactical does a great job making really solid kits available to people like you and me. This kit is one that can be worn on the ankle and it has
We've got a Head-to-Head-to-Head-to-Head video going on here. We're going to look at BattlBox, Spec Ops Global, Hunt Vault, and Valor Blocks. We can't go into a ton of detail on every item, but we'll look at what each company has to offer and maybe you'll find on
Unique wallets - that's what Trayvax is all about. The Element is a new wallet from Trayvax that has a lot of similar features to their original models, but it is a very earthy / organic looking wallet. Holding up to 10 cards and some cash to boot
I was into the Crooked River from Benchmade the first time I saw it. And now that I have carried it in the woods and for EDC, I can tell you it has a lot to offer. It's definitely a larger EDC knife but for me that's fine.
