Unlike some product categories — such as ski and snowboard gear — that have seasonal ebbs and flows in the number of products rolling out, the knife and EDC world is a continuously churning apparatus. That means we see exciting new items all the time, and of course, feel compelled to document them.

Victorinox steps away from its multitool roots with this fundamentally sound folder, featuring a paracord pendant and a lockable silver blade that deploys easily thanks to a removable thumb stud. The Evoke Alox is available in a range of colorways and treatments.
This bushcraft-ready beast, complete with a rubberized handle and versatile sheath, is optimized for outdoor adventure. The most notable feature is the full-tang CRYO 4116 Krupp stainless steel blade, which boasts excellent corrosion resistance, strength and edge retention.
Upgrade your brown bag lunches and campsite picnics with this clever, useful on-the-go meal kit from Opinel (one of the most iconic knifemaking brands) and Monbento. It includes a gorgeous bento box (with two airtight containers), a limited-edition No. 8 folding knife, cutlery attachments (a spoon and fork) and more.
One of our favorite key organizer brands is back with new additions to its Star Wars collaboration, including the Millennium Falcon (seen here), an X-wing, the Death Star and a Tie Fighter — all done up with clever, colorful minimalist graphics. The six earlier Star Wars-themed organizers are still available, too.
The Ridge’s wallet and key organizer package is already wildly popular thanks to its minimalist functionality. The latest edition features a topographic look at the summit of Half Dome, the 8,800-foot icon of the Yosemite Valley that is tackled by thousands of hikers and climbers every year.
TJB's Barnes has been around for a while (and we're still not over how gorgeous and well-built it is), but now the titanium billet integral lock knife with its Bohler M390 stainless steel blade comes in a stainless steel and green Micarta option. Just be ready for some sticker shock.
WESN's first-ever artist collab (made in conjunction with the visionaries at Real Fun, Wow!), this take on the Henry slipjoint knife is, in a word, stunning. Along with those special-edition G-10 handle scales, you still get a Sandvik 14c28n steel blade, titanium accents and that rock-solid USA-made construction.
The first CRKT custom design from survivalist and three-time Naked and Afraid contestant Kaila Cumings, the Bugsy is a small fixed-blade knife with big capabilities thanks to its ergonomic Micarta handle and curved, full-tang 1095 carbon steel blade. There's a blacked-out, partially serrated G-10 version, too.
Another small but mighty fixed blade, WESN's latest beauty boasts a 2.75-inch full-tang blade made of S35VN steel, two handle options (wood or G10) and a leather sheath handcrafted in Sweden, just like the knife itself. Available for pre-order now, The Bornas ships in July.
This mini multi-tool isn't new, but it's now available in four fresh colors: Slate, Navy, Arctic and Cherry. And with 10 handy functions — including a 420HC knife, reliable spring-action scissors and multiple screwdrivers — the Micra earns its 549 five-star reviews and a place in your EDC.
Orbitkey's organizers are already some of the best around. But now they get a bit of refinement thanks to a new pebbled leather option. You still get the features you know and love — a clever locking mechanism, 2-7 key capacity, key fob loop and more — just with a nicer textured exterior.
This quirky little collab with Mountain Gazette sneaks a 5- or 10-pack of Dad Grass Hemp CBD Pre Rolls or Mom Grass CBG Pre Rolls into what looks like a safety kit. It’s perfect for relaxing on the lift or in the trees. Pro tip: pack some actual first aid too.
Price: $37 (for 5 pre rolls); $72 (for 10)
VSSL just keeps finding new things to pack into its clever cylinders. This beach-ready edition boasts Tenacious Tapes for wetsuit repair, a bevy of surfboard-fixing items, wound-closure strips and bandages, a fire-starting kit, zip ties and a water-resistant 4-mode LED 200-lumen flashlight.
In collaboration with artists Jack Ludlam and Shaylen Broughton, The Ridge has applied a brand-new vibrant Flamingo Pink colorway to two of its best minimalist EDC products: the wallet (seen here) and the Keycase keychain organizer.
Price: $95, $75
CRKT has taken one of master knifemaker Ken Onion's best compact EDC knife designs and elevated it into the stratosphere with premium materials, like Böhler M390 blade steel and titanium. And there are two versions — the one you see here and this one.
The Pilar III, designed by Jesper Voxnaes, already tops our list of the best pocket knives. But now there's a new edition with some big upgrades, like a black-coated Sandvik 12C27 steel blade and hammer-textured G10 handle (which adds better all-weather grip). As if this knife needed to get even better.
Hot on the heels of the updated Pilar III comes the next generation, which boasts a slightly bigger clip-point blade (3.09 inches versus 2.97 inches) made of edge-retaining D2 steel. Like the knife right next to it, this Voxnaes-design variety features a thumb slot for easy opening and grippy G10 scales.
A gorgeous and unique take on one of WESN's best classic-style knives, this version of the Samla is made with handle scales crafted entirely by hand in Stockholm from a combination of Micarta and actual selvedge denim sourced from beloved brand Momotaro. That also means each and every one is unique.
Just in time for St. Patty’s Day comes this limited-edition Fastball, complete with a green aluminum handle, gold hardware and a laser-etched Celtic sailor’s knot. It also features a three-position clip and an easy-flipping, 3-inch S30V wharncliffe blade that’s sure to put an Irish spring in your step.
Part of an array of spring releases from VSSL, this uniquely cool hand-sized cylinder is actually a storage tin for your EDC and/or survival gear. But that's not all — it also has a carabiner lid and a waterproof Bluetooth speaker integrated into the tail cap. That makes it a mighty sidekick for lovers of both everyday carry and music.
Marie Kondo is well known for her impact on the world of organization, and now she's bringing it to the world of EDC alongside Orbitkey. Part valet tray, part storage case, part wireless charger, this gorgeous go-anywhere organizer is perfect for people that want to keep their EDC and tech in order.
We are one tray shy of a trend here. Made in Southern California by Cambro, TJB’s offering is simpler and cheaper than Kondo’s. It’s really just a two-piece place for your keys and lighter and pocket knife and change to hang out when not in use — and look damn good doing it.
This streamlined yet still rugged new Stanley design is ideal for stepping out into the world with your go-to beverage. It comes in three sizes (25 ounces to 1.4 quarts) and keeps drinks hot for 20 hours or cold for 25. An insulated lid doubles as a sipping cup, making it easy to share.
TJB's vinyl record-opening utility knife only recently came out — but it's already got a special edition. Same corrosion-resistant stainless steel blade, now featuring mystery inlays made with genuine tie-dye vinyl from recycled LPs. And no two are the same.
At just 3.25 inches closed, this mini version of CRKT’s award-winning gentleman’s folder is the perfect desk accessory. It features a 2.21-inch Sandvik 12C27 steel blade, aluminum scales and an IKBS ball bearing pivot for deployment as slick as a three-piece suit.
These out-of-this-world EDC pens come with a novel Cerakote coating developed by Tactile Turn that makes each one unique, just like the stars in the night sky. Of course, their titanium construction and rock-solid deployments certainly help matters.
Utilizing a sturdy, reliable Crossbar Lock, this ambidextrous EDC knife is made in the USA. Pair that with its lightweight G-10 handle scales and upscale yet hardwearing 154CM steel blade and you've got another potential big hit for CRKT.
A limited-edition take on one of Gerber's best flippers made to celebrate the brand's 84th anniversary, the Heritage boasts the same B.O.S.S. Tech deployment, tough-but-light aluminum handle and S30V steel wharncliffe blade. Stay tuned for an update as soon as it becomes available.
Thanks to a 3-inch Wharncliffe Bohler M390 steel blade encased in a classic trapper pattern, the Venom Jack boldly treads the line between modern marvel and instant heirloom. Featuring a titanium frame and hardware, the knife employs a traditional nail nick opener and a slip-joint half-stop. It's available with a range of Micarta and carbon scales, all of which seem to be going fast.
We know, $99 seems like a lot to pay for a pry bar/bottle opener. But what if it's the perfect pry bar/bottle opener? That's what Maciej Modrzejewski, the man behind Matsey, seems to have achieved here. With the hexagon as its basic building block, the titanium HexBar packs simplicity and symmetry into a sturdy, grippable package that fits nicely on a keychain and ships from Poland later this spring.
A staple of CRKT's catalog and one of the best neck knives available, the Minimalist just got a pretty serious upgrade with this Drop Point edition. The blade material has been swapped for 154CM performance steel and mated to an infused fiber handle, making it stronger and more durable. Ideal for discreet wear and occasions where a folder just won't cut it (like on a hike or camping trip), this knife is a real treat.
The Kline was announced way back in May 2022, but it unfortunately hit some speed bumps along the way and only recently launched. As a refresher, the features of this exceptional knife include a CPM-MagnaCut steel drop point blade, Micarta scales, ambidextrous Slide-Lock, titanium pocket clip and more. If you want your very own USA-made workhorse knife, this is certainly a contender for the best currently available.
Founded in 2021 by knifemaking wunderkind Josh Smith, Montana Knife Company is a boutique brand on the rise. While it typically drops limited quantities of fixed blades that sell out fast, MKC recently wide-released the popular Speedgoat. Named for a slang term for the pronghorn antelope, this 1.7-ounce, 3.75-inch carbon-steel blade (full length of 7.75 inches) is similarly light and agile, thanks in part to a skeletonized handle wrapped in seven feet of handy 550 paracord. While it’s designed for hunting, it’s ready for anything.
You'd probably have to be a Bear Grylls- or Les Stroud-level survivalist to add this water bottle-sized kit to your everyday carry loadout, but it's still a noteworthy release for serious outdoors lovers. Made in collaboration with renowned eyewear/helmet brand Smith, the water-resistant, 14.6-ounce tube packs a variety of essential tools ranging from zip ties to first-aid supplies that will help you thrive throughout any adventure — be that a quick trip to the slopes or a longer winter camping session.
