The PHLster Skeleton remains one of my all-time favorite minimalist holster designs. It’s a small, well-made holster that has a ton of features like ride height and cant adjustment among others. If you’re looking […]

Cold Weather EDC

Pictured above is a Glock 19 in a PHLster Skeleton and a spare mag in a PHLster Skeleton Mag Carrier. Last spring we talked about summer EDC, and how in the summer I tend to shed layers and “gun down” to aid in concealability. Well cooler temps are finally upon us (relatively speaking, it’s still […]

Boxer Tactical Stryker Belt

Pictured is a Glock 19 in a PHLster Skeleton, Boxer Tactical Stryker Belt. About six months ago now, I was talking guns and gear with Jon at PHLster when he mentioned a new company he discovered sewing top quality tactical nylon gear here in the US, and at reasonable prices. Naturally, I was interested, and I contacted […]

Cold Steel Recon 1

Cold Steel Recon 1

The Recon 1 is one of Cold Steel‘s newest tactical folders. First of all, this is a big folding knife and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Blade length is four inches, but it is still relatively light considering the four inch blade since it doesn’t use steel liners in the handle. You can use […]

Summer EDC

The calendar says that Summer is almost upon us, but here in Houston, I’m not fooled – Summer has been here for about a month now. Summer of course means hotter temperatures, and when possible, fewer layers and less clothing. For those of us who carry concealed, fewer layers and less clothing means we have […]

Kershaw Junkyard Dog 2.2 Composite

I recently purchased the Kershaw Junkyard Dog 2.2 Composite. I saw it while browsing knives, and decided I had to buy it. And can you blame me? The Junkyard Dog is just a good-looking blade, and as it turns out, a pretty functional blade as well. Specifications Steel Sandvik 14C28N and CPM-D2 composite two-tone stainless […]

Ruger SR9c

The Ruger SR9c is the compact version of the previously reviewed full sized SR9. The SR9c has been on the market for a couple years now, but like its big brother, doesn’t get the attention I think it deserves. Specifications Caliber 9mm Luger Grip Frame Black, High Performance, Glass-Filled Nylon Length 6.85″ Height 4.61″ Width […]

SOG Aegis

SOG Aegis

Having never owned an assisted open knife, I recently decided to purchased a SOG Aegis in digital camouflage. In Greek, Aegis means “shield” or “protection”; an apt name for an every-day-carry (EDC) knife that may be used in emergency situation. The Aegis uses the S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) system for opening the blade. Give it […]

Spyderco Tenacious

Spyderco makes some really cool knives, but some of their models get a little pricey. That’s not the case with the Spyderco Tenacious. The Tenacious is a “value model” for Spyderco, and is an excellent value indeed. Specifications Steel 8Cr13MoV Handle Textured black G-10 Blade Length 3.39″ Closed Length 4.45″ Overall Length 7.76″ Weight 4.1 […]

Leatherman Micra

The Leatherman Micra is an excellent small multi-tool (sometimes called a mini-tool) for everyday carry (EDC). The Micra is one of my favorite small multi-tools. I carry one on my key chain, and use it all the time. Tools Spring-action Scissors Nail File Nail Cleaner Tweezers 420HC Knife Extra-small Screwdriver Medium Screwdriver Flat/Phillips Screwdriver RulerBottle […]
