Prometheus Lambda Top In Copper

Anyone who loved the movie, Inception, is likely to have one of these top notch little accessories as part of their EDC line up but, quite frankly, they don’t come any better made or more striking than this Prometheus Lambda Top in Copper from the guys at Urban EDC Supply. This eye-catching offering has an unofficial record spin time of 12 minutes and truly is an expression of impeccable engineering, physics and visual flair. So far as sheer performance and stability is concerned, you’ll struggle to find anything in this size and weight class that even comes close to the performance capabilities of the Prometheus Lambda Top. A fun addition to your EDC line up. ($90)

MGCO Playing Cards

Playing cards is the perfect way to while away long journeys or the perfect thing to spring out on camping trips into the wild and that’s why so many men will opt to have a deck of cards as part and parcel of their everyday carry line up. If you’re after a brilliantly illustrated and classy deck for all your hands of poker and blackjack, these MGCO Playing Cards on Urban EDC Supply will be a great place to start. Designed by Tyler Deeb, the attention to detail which has gone into the illustrations, colouring, and aesthetics of these cards is second to none. This deck is printed by the United States Playing Card Co. on premium Bee paper, which is the highest quality coated playing card stock. In addition, the tuck case is gold-foiled and embossed for that extra touch of class and visual superiority when you pull this deck out. ($15)

Sneerwell Noble Flask

We’re partial to a tipple or two here at Coolector HQ and there are plenty of other men out there similarly inclined so a flask should certainly be one of the main elements of their EDC collection. These brilliantly conceived and crafted Noble Flasks by Sneerwell on Urban EDC Supply are the sort of aesthetically superior offering we’d gravitate towards were we in the market for a hip flask and each one is hewn from solid stainless steel before being meticulously hand-etched and patinated by the man behind Sneerwell, Josh Harvey. Each flask is crafted by hand using time-tested traditional methods, which means that no two will be exactly alike, and the amazing artwork takes its design inspiration from early Americana and Nautical folklore. ($65)

Menovade S.T.U.F.F Pocketknife

Being handy on a day to day basis is all about having the right tools and EDC in your pocket and not many are going to boast more functionality and versatility than this ace looking S.T.U.F.F Pocketknife from Menovade. Standing for Sheepsfoot Tangential Underpin Friction Folder, this great piece of EDC is a sheepsfoot friction folder which uses a unique tang/pin detent that is engaged when the knife is fully opened. While this is not a locking mechanism, it adds some extra comfort and security and means you can carry this accessory even in places with sensitive knife laws. It offers an impressive 1.8” CPM 154 chisel ground sheepsfoot blade which will make short work of tough materials. Also, due to the shorter blade length, it can provide greater control for precision cuts and work. ($140)
