Everyday Carry (EDC) - refers to various items, usually small, that are worn or carried by a person on a daily basis for use in everyday tasks from the mundane to the unexpected.
Gerber Epic KnifeIf you’re stuck carrying just one knife on your next outdoorsy adventure, the Gerber Epic Knife ($30) wouldn’t be a bad choice. This versatile chrome-molybdenum stainless steel blade features a textured nylon handle, a serrated edge, a blunt tip, an integrated bottle opener, and a locking sheath that also sports a reversible pocket clip so you can carry it on right or left side — which is really handy if your other hand is busy holding a beer or fighting off a hungry grizzly bear.

Wrex Titanium Pocket WrenchOf all the things we’ve seen on pocket tools, wrenches tend to be pretty uncommon — which is what makes the Wrex Titanium Pocket Wrench ($180) so special. Weighing in at only 2.9 oz., this versatile tool offers a trigger-locking adjustable wrench, an ultra sharp, titanium coated blade attached to the jaw, a wire stripping hole, a double-ended driver bit, a 1/4-inch hex bit driver with o-ring, an included lanyard, and, of course, a bottle opener.

Benchmade 581 Barrage KnifeIt’s not exactly a switchblade, but it’s as close as you’re going to get while staying on the right side of the law. The Benchmade 581 Barrage Knife ($220-$235) offers an AXIS Assist locking mechanism that helps you get the blade out in a hurry when it’s needed — such as when fighting off rival gang members angry flocks of chickens — and a reversible pocket clip to keep it handy.

Black Diamond Magnetron CarabinerTired of messing with twistlocks, screwlocks, or, worse yet, no-lock carabiners? The Black Diamond Magnetron Carabiner ($TBA; July 2012) will soon be here to give you smooth, one-handed locking and unlocking action. This innovative design employs magnetic attraction to a steel insert inside the carabiner nose to keep two independent arms locked in place, each of which must be individually depressed before the gate can be opened — and once it is, opposing fields repel the arms to ensure reliable operation.

Mossberg Just-In-Case KitIn case of emergency. In case of zombie outbreak. In case of rabid squirrel attacks — whatever the case, you can rely on the Mossberg Just-In-Case Kit ($360). This all-in-one survival pack includes a 12 gauge Mossberg 500 Pump-Action shotgun inside a re-sealable clear bag, inside a waterproof synthetic carrying tube which also holds gear like a “Survival Kit in a Can” and a multi-tool and serrated knife combo pack.

Gerber Venture KnifeKnives don’t need to do a bunch of different things to be useful — they just need to do one thing really well. The Gerber Venture Knife ($75) adheres to this mantra by limiting its design to a polished titanium handle and a three and a half inch serrated blade that’s ready when you need it thanks to the Venture’s FAST spring-assisted opening mechanism.

Leatherman RebarMore functionality, smaller package. No, it’s not the latest gadget from Apple — that one is actually bigger than it’s predecessor. Instead, it’s the Leatherman Rebar ($TBA). Measuring just four inches in length when closed, it packs needlenose pliers, regular pliers, replaceable steel wire and hard-wire cutters, a crimper, a knife, a serrated knife, a file, a saw, small, large, and phillips screwdrivers, and an awl with a thread loop. Oh, and let’s not forget the ruler, bottle opener, can opener, wire stripper, or lanyard ring, nor the stainless steel body and black oxide finish. More. Less. You get the idea.

Stanley FuBar Demolition Bar
Forged from high carbon alloy steel, this ingenious tool features everything you need to strike, pull, pry, chisel, and chop down old material, including a P-shaped chisel, multiple nail pullers and strike-able surfaces, and a padded handle to reduce slippage. Way more efficient than a ball bat — although possibly less fun, due to the reduced risk of serious bodily harm.

Rough & Tumble Messenger ToteWe should probably limit ourselves to a certain amount of bags…but we don’t. We have so many bags lying around it’s like Hoarders:Bags in our office closet. Paring it down is difficult though. We need a tote for the flea market and grocery store because it’s convenient and high capacity. Messenger for public transportation. Backpack for the bike. You get the idea. With Rough & Tumble’s Messenger Tote we might be able to cross two other bags off of the list. It boils down a tote bag with a messenger strap which is cool, but the materials and craftsmanship are what really stand out. Each  bag is handmade in Maine from waxed canvas and leather from material colors you select and includes pockets for pens, iPad, passport, phone and anything else you need on your person. $188

TSOVET SVT-GR44TSOVET has, once again, managed to outdo themselves with their latest watch. The SVT-GR44 is a limited edition mechanical watch powered by the Valjoux 7750 movement. For your reference, that’s like the Porsche of watch movements. No, seriously. Porsche Design uses Valjoux movements as the base for their watches. Other brands you’ve probably heard of that also use Valjoux: Omega, Breitling, TAG, IWC and the list goes on. Point is, it’s pretty damn fancy. This newest piece was made in collaboration with the Chip Ganassi Race Teams (think Chicago Bulls during the Jordan years) and each 44MM stainless cased beauty also includes a commemorative book on Ganassi’s 145 wins and a custom designed display box. Since there were only 51 made, it’s probably safe to call this a grail watch. $3k+
