Slimming down your work EDC, suave carry for kitchen tools, and putting an end to keyring struggles. Discover more in our Week In Review…
Getting round awkward keyrings
Keyrings are little carry conundrums – great for keeping keys together, but a struggle to open and not kind on your fingernails. Keyround aims to change that. Attractive and easy to open, Keyround is a flat keyring with interlocking ends. Simply push them apart to conveniently and quickly add or remove keys. Laser cut from stainless steel, Keyround is available in a choice of designs that bring subtle style to your EDC. See it in action through the Keyround Kickstarter campaign.
Organization that jazzes up your phone charger
Phone chargers are practical, sure, but stylish? Not so much. But the new Lupito from This Is Ground brings style and organization to the humble charger. Designed to fit the Apple 5W USB power adapter, this leather holder lets you store your charger and cable together while also distinguishing your gear from other chargers that may be in the vicinity.
Classy chef’s carry
For chefs, good knives are invaluable. They’re tools of the trade, but they go beyond that, arguably becoming an extension of the chefs themselves and allowing them to craft their kitchen masterpieces. Such tools deserve proper respect and protection, and the Joshu+Vela 17″ Knife Roll is more than up to the task. Available in black and natural colorways, the knife roll is constructed from hard-wearing 24 oz. canvas, with leather strap closures and a leather-covered cotton webbing carry handle. Inside the roll features a leather knife-protecting flap, a full-height zippered pocket, six knife slots and seven smaller slots for additional items.
Defy large work loads
Tough enough for life outside the office, but understated enough to suit a variety of work environments. The DEFY Slim Briefcase is ready to help you cut down your carry to the essentials, lightening the load and delivering a sleek, durable and functional form. DEFY’s smallest briefcase to date, the bag fits a 13″ laptop in its padded tech compartment, along with additional EDC items in its interior pockets and quick-access exterior pocket. Made by hand from M35 Military Truck Tarpaulin vinyl/canvas material, the briefcase features a 1000D Cordura lining and water-resistant zippers that zip down the sides for easy access to the interior. The Slim Briefcase also includes additional features such as a luggage handle strap on the back, a detachable shoulder strap, and a key clip and is available to pre-order now.
