Everyday Carry: Subtle

Published By

Bruce Lee once said that a kung fu man is unassuming, with no desire to show off. Meanwhile, Muhammad Ali advised us to float like butteryflies (and sting like bees). Following the counsel of GOATs throughout time, today’s curation of Everyday Carry is subtle, silent, and undeniably effective. Each piece of EDC here will get the job done, before anyone even realizes you’ve pulled it out.

Tudor Black Bay 36

The tool watch in its purest form, the Black Bay upholds the signature Tudor silhouette in a universally comfortable 36mm case. Its smooth bezel, guardless crown, and brand-specific snowflake hands are versatile but distinct, while the automatic Caliber T600 is a regular old faithful, accurate and easily serviced. Plus, its premium construction ensures this timepiece can take a real beating.

All these years writing with lesser pens will feel like you were running with weights on, once you get a hold of the Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen. Its slick titanium finish feels smooth and sturdy, the .38mm point serves up fine but bold script, and the bolt refill mechanism is fun and tactile. You don’t have bad penmanship, you just never had the right tools.

Bellroy Card Sleeve

The fact that the Bellroy Card Sleeve sinks invisibly into any pocket makes its eight-card capacity even more impressive. It’s also built with a pull-tab for easy extraction, versus other discreet sleeves that just hold your cards hostage. Add the environmentally-certified leather construction, and you’ve got a useful tool that’ll age like fine whiskey.

es Brand Chapter Knife

The James Brand Chapter Knife

James Brand’s Chapter Knife is an essential folding knife, but leveled up five times over. The frame-lock is made of strong but light titanium, for easy action and maintenance. The straight S35VN steel blade is martensitic, meaning heat and aging treatments harden and strengthen it—and it’s easy to polish. It’s also corrosion-resistant, meaning this stylish knife will last you a long time to come.
