Memorial Day has come and gone and June is already here. And that means summer is upon us, albeit unofficially. While we’d normally bemoan how quickly the year is passing, we’ve been a bit preoccupied, what with enjoying the warming weather — and the bevy of new everyday carry releases we’ve been stumbling across.

We’ve seen a lot of great drops of late, ranging from a colorful collaboration between one of our favorite outdoor brands and arguably the most significant name in multi-tools to an ultra-minimalist front-pocket wallet designed to hold all your cash, cards and even a pen. Needless to say, June is going to be a big month for EDC. Need more proof? Just check out the items below.

CRKT Stickler

Yes, it packs a Sandvik 12C27 blade offering excellent edge retention, CRKT’s ultra-smooth IKBS ball bearing pivot, a one-hand-operable liner lock and durable-yet-ultralight anodized aluminum handle. But Jeff Park’s slender Stickler was actually inspired by vintage coffin jack pocket knives and melon testers. Altogether, that gives this sleek slicer some serious old-meets-new appeal, especially as an addition to your EDC rotation.

Gerber Savvy

A passing glance at the Gerber Savvy might have you thinking it’s just a spin on the brand’s outstanding Fastball. And while it does share some styling, this one has a significant difference: it utilizes a pivot lock (as opposed to the Fastball’s liner). That makes this USA-made folder even sturdier and more enticing, especially when you consider its premium 20CV blade steel, “frictionless” deployment and your choice of aluminum or carbon fiber handle scales (the latter for an up-charge).

Price: $200

The James Brand x VMP: the Abbey

A utility blade made specifically for opening vinyl records might be the most niche knife around, but that doesn’t mean the James Brand x VMP Abbey isn’t brilliant. Frankly stunning in its minimalist design and with materials to match (AR-RPM9 steel with reclaimed vinyl LP scales, plus a leather sheath), it’s like a smaller and more portable desk knife. No surprise, then, that the $79 blade quickly sold out. You can, however, sign up to be notified if/when it returns.

Alternate name for this wallet? The Anti-Costanza. Because on the other end of the spectrum from George’s dangerously bloated EDC lies this minimalist masterpiece. It boasts room for eight cards and 10 folded bills while also packing a TSA-compliant toothpick and a mini multi-tool featuring a bottle opener, pry bar, nail puller and package opener, plus multiple screwdrivers and wrenches. In other words, everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Barebones Power Bank

Given our penchant for expanding the definition of EDC, we can’t resist including this elegant, portable powerhouse that, at 4.75″ x 4″ x 1.13″, should fit neatly in your back pocket. Built-in magnets allow it to attach to metal surfaces while the copper wire handle and LED flashlight let it double as a lantern. Despite vintage looks, this Power Bank’s insides are quite modern: it can run for up to 10 hours and offers both USB-A and USB-C outputs.

Price: $79.99
