What’s the most valuable piece of everyday gear? If forced to choose, I’d probably give two answers – A Swiss Army Knife and a reliable watch. So when Wenger, one of the makers of the legendary multi-tool agreed to send one of their watches my way, I was anxious to give it a shot.
A good wallet is perhaps the most overlooked component of a strong EDC loadout.

Close your eyes and imagine a knife. It’s got a Scandi grind, a back lock, and a comfortable, green handle perfectly suited for the great outdoors. Whose maker’s mark is on this woodsman’s dream? Open your eyes – It’s Cold Steel.
