Victorinox Swiss Army Pioneer Alox, Black ($29.99)
The 3 1/2" Pioneer is a no nonsense, highly durable tool with a clean design. Inspired by the classic soldier's knife, this sturdy knife combines 8 functions in a durable fluted Alox handle. The stainless steel implements carry a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, and are sure to stand the test of time.
The Pioneer is the perfect size for daily tasks and the Alox handles make it easy to grip, so it's good for outdoor use as well as everyday carry (EDC). It's affordable while being a top quality Swiss craftsmanship kife. On the opposite side of the shield, the Pioneer features an engraving panel that allows your knife to be personalized. Just take it to a local engraving shop.
KarasKustoms RENDER K, Aluminum ($60.00)
KarasKustoms designed the RENDER K to be the last pen you'll ever need. Made to work with a variety of pen refills, you can have the look of a custom pen and still maintain the feel of your favorite ink. Each pen starts out as a solid piece of 6061-T6 aluminum and KarasKustoms machines all the parts themselves, recycling any excess material from the machining process. The thread-on cap uses triple-start threads to securely attach itself to the pen and to allow the removal of the cap with only 1.5 revolutions. One of the best features of the RENDER K? There are no logos anywhere. Simple, plain, functional and durable.
