I found this hugely inspirational… Some stationary expert with a blog posts his EDC pack out. It features a ton of hand made niceties and a vintage slant. Gorgeous work and it all looks very usable.

I typically don’t get into these kinds of key tools, but this one has potential – not so much because of it’s utility, but because it is so small that it will get the hell out of your way when you aren’t using it… So maybe, you’ll carry for longer than a couple of weeks. It’s cheap as hell too.
These pens were done on a government contract and apparently there was some left-over stock. CountyComm got a hold of them and is letting them go for about $50 a pop. Sounds expensive, but that price is actually pretty good for what ya get. It’s an all stainless steel body stuffed with the same SPR4 pressurized Fisher ink refill that the Space Pen uses. It’s about 5.25″ long with a diameter of .50″.

This is brilliant. How often do you need a cable for your iPhone while on the run? Seems like I’m always looking for one. FlipSync came up with this solution… It looks like a key fob, but flips apart to reveal an Apple dock connection on one side and a USB on the other. Of course, they also make one with all kinds of different standard and mini-USB connections – handy for connecting cameras, drives, etc…
I love this idea.
$20 is pretty spendy, but worth it the first time one of these save ya.

The BuryBunker is a steel case designed to hold a pelican type case inside. The case is made from 10 gauge steel and powder-coated for long lasting durability. The lid is fastened with two 7/16 inch stainless steel fasteners and has a watertight silicon gasket which can withstand temperatures as low as -60 degrees F. Perfect for stowing away guns, cash, or even food for when the end of the word comes…
The trend in affordable daily blades these days seems to be multi-functionality, but in a sleeker package than your typical Swiss Army package. The AO FAST 3.0 is the latest from Gerber that flaunts such sensibilities. It’s a $75 knife that features assisted opening, a bottle opener, and a built in carabiner. I bought one out of curiosity and can report typical Gerber manufacturing quality, but I’m not a fan of the size. It’s a little big (5.3″ closed) and heavy (4.91 Oz) for pocket carry, but I guess that’s what the carabiner is for. It would make a great pack carry blade for you outdoor freaks.
This is pretty bitchin’… Quirky put their noggins towards developing a modular multi-tool. They came up with the Switch, which is essentially a folding tool with interchangeable bits. Depending on your needs and the size of the tool you want to carry, you simply add or omit bits. Ingenious… I wonder if it’s as durable or reliable as a Leatherman?
I think I’ll order one and report back.
