Magpul Rigger EDC Knife

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

If you missed out on the limited edition versions of the Magpul Rigger knife, they’ve just introduced an EDC version.

Although the overall design remains the same, with its distinctive Modified Wharncliffe blade, they’ve swapped out the blade material from S35VN to CPM 154. CPM 154 aims for a Rockwell C hardness of 58 – 60 and will more readily polish to a mirror finish and is easier to grind than CPM S30V.

It features a double-locking aluminum frame. The Rigger EDC also incorporates Magpul’s Secondary Locking Feature. The pocket clip can also be reversed.


Blade Length: 3.4” (from center of pivot)
Blade Thickness: 11/64”
Open Length: 7.59”
Closed Length: 4.52”
Handle Thickness: 7/16”
Weight: estimated at 3.7oz
Mechanism: Manual Opening w/ Flipper
Flipper Jimping Length: .235”
Blade Spine Jimping Length: .65”
Hardware Material: Stainless Steel
Pocket Clip Position: Reversible Tip-Up
Bearing Type: Caged Ceramic Bearings

The price at $239.95 is a bit more friendly than the limited edition variants as well.

Refreshed Line Reflects Ever-Changing Low-Profile Landscape

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx®, a leading manufacturer of low-profile tactical apparel and accessories, is excited to announce the launch of its Guardian 2.0 line of EDC shirts. First launched in 2018, the Guardian 2.0 is revamped and refreshed for 2020 with new fabric, colors and updated features. Both short sleeve and long sleeve styles are now available online at vertx.com and in-store. Customers can find their nearest dealer using the Vertx® store locator at vertx.com/store-locator.

“The most important thing we can do for our customers is continue to update and improve our lines.” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx®. “Continually changing up colorways and fabrics makes it a lot easier for guys to blend in when they go out into the field. Better yet, the Guardian 2.0 isn’t just a great functional piece, it’s comfortable enough to wear casually as well.”

The Guardian 2.0 is styled to emulate a casual button-down but includes EDC-compatible features that make it perfect for any mission. Constructed with a built-in WeaponGuard™ underlayer that’s designed to be tucked in and features 37.5® technology, the Guardian protects the skin from gear worn at the waistline while actively working to keep the wearer cool, dry and odor-free. Updated from the 1.0 styles, the communications pass-throughs were moved from the front and back of the WeaponGuard™ underlayer to the left and right side seam to more easily hide wires and cables. Refreshed fabrication in a wrinkle-resistant Polyester/Cotton/Spandex blend with all-new solids and plaids help the Guardian 2.0 blend into the crowd. Learn more about the Guardian 2.0 and the rest of the Vertx® line at vertx.com.

StatGear’s Hygiene Hand Antimicrobial Brass EDC Door Opener & Stylus Helps You Flatten The Curve

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

We received this note from StatGear founder Avi Goldstein and thought his idea was worth a share.

My company StatGear was started by myself, a NY City Paramedic 10 years ago and has been focused on designing ans manufacturing survival and rescue tools for many first responders and government agencies as well as some innovative edc (everyday carry) items for outdoor enthusiasts. 

Our newly launched Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for a keychain tool to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The Hygiene Hand is made from Brass. It won’t stop the COVID-19 virus from surviving on the surface but studies show it’s only there for hours rather than days associated with some other materials such as steel.

Here are a some of the uses for this device. It gives you some stand-off from those surface areas that might harbor the virus.
