Everyday Carry remains a hot product category, and aspiring design entrepreneurs among you should note that multitools and knives are what will enable you to get your foot in the door.

It seems more useful for studio-roaming RISD sophomores rather than Montana militiamen looking to secure the compound, but I can’t deny that the design is well-considered, from the dial interface to the take-anywhere size.
It’s anyone’s guess as to whether the Everyday Blade will cross the Kickstarter finish line. At press time they had $16,629 in pledges on a $25,000 goal, with 36 days left in the campaign.
