EDC Caddy

FullSizeRender

The EDC Caddy by Hitch & Timber is a great little “pocket organizer”. It’s handmade with quality materials, and you couldn’t ask for better customer service. It will hold a small Swiss Army Knife (I use it with my cadets), a small AAA flashlight or pen, and it has 2 slots for cash and some cards. The second card slot is in the back and not visible in the picture. I’ve found myself using this wallet more when I wear shorts, just because I have limited pockets and this really combines everything into one easy to carry item.

The Viper Odino designed by Jesper Voxnaes is one of my all time favorites. I featured it in one of my first posts where you’ll find a little more detail about this awesome knife.

Also featured in a previous post is my plaid handkerchief by Cranky Hanky Co. I can’t say enough about how great the quality and customer service is from them.
Inside of the caddy is a Victorinox Cadet knife, and a Lumintop Worm AAA flashlight. The worm really is a great little light for the price.

F3 II / Olight S1A

Snapseed

This combo features the F3 II by Boker, and the Olight S1A.

The Boker F3 II is the smaller version of the F3, both designed by Jesper Voxnaes. The F3 II is a much more carry-friendly option while keeping the design and functionality of the larger F3. The materials are also the same as the larger version (CMP-S35VN blade and titanium handles). The blade is right at 3”, only .25” shorter than the F3. The big difference is in the handle and weight of the knife. The handle measures 4” and 4.37oz, but the F3 comes in at 4.75” and 6.55oz. This really reduces the “bulk” some may feel with the F3, without sacrificing much of the blade size and length.

The clip and backspacer are anodized a nice blue color from the factory. I generally don’t do lanyard beads, but this set by Grumpy’s EDC just matched too perfectly to not add to this knife.

The Olight S1A is an awesome EDC light. It is powered by 1 AA battery, or a rechargeable 14500 battery. This is the stainless steel limited edition which comes in copper as well. The regular S1A will come in a anodized aluminium like the majority of lights from Olight.

The S1A has a max beam distance of 387’ and 4 brightness settings – .5, 5, 50, and 220 lumens, which is pretty impressive for a single AA battery. Even more impressive is the “turbo” mode that blasts 600 lumens for one minute with a 14500 rechargeable battery. Not bad for a light measuring just over 3”..

Swiss Army Compact

IMG_0019

This EDC features a Victorinox Swiss Army Compact model, a Fisher Space Pen, the bi-fold wallet by Big Red Beard Combs, and a handkerchief from Cranky Hanky Co.

The Swiss Army Compact is a great model that fits it’s name well. It’s a 93mm model that features a blade, bottle and can opener/large screwdriver, scissors, a “parcel” hook with a file on the spine, and a corkscrew. This model also comes with tweezers, toothpick, a ball point pen, and a mini screwdriver that fits within the corkscrew. My compact does not have the ball point pen because it has the “silvertech” scales.

The Fisher Bullet Space Pen is a great little compact pen that fits just about anywhere. It is only 3.75” when closed (almost the size of the swiss army knife), but opens up to 5.25”, which is about the size of a standard pen. It is made of all brass with a black matte finish. Fisher claims the space pen can write in some extreme conditions including underwater, upside down, in zero gravity, and in temperatures ranging from -30F to 250F. I have not tried any of these personally, but I will take their word for it. The refills for Fisher space pens are relatively inexpensive, and are said to last 3 times as long as a normal pen.

The Big Red Bi-Fold Wallet is a great quality minimalist wallet. See my previous “Budget EDC” post for more information on this wallet.

Maroon Handkerchief from Cranky Hanky Co. Just another one of my many handkerchiefs from Car at Cranky Hanky. Always great quality products and customer service!
