#6 Nite Ize Pen Inka Mobile with Stylus
If you want a pen wherever you go and you want a stylus so you don’t have fingerprints or worse on your smartphone, tablet or e-reader, then the Nite Ize Pen Inka Mobile with Stylus is the perfect solution. I’ve had several “mobile” pens before, and loved each of them to varying degrees for the days or months before the pen slipped from its cap and was gone forever. So I’ve been looking for a pen that was keychain ready, but with a screw cap, rather than a simple push cap. Let me just list some of the reasons why this pen is so awesome:
- Keychain carabiner clip portability
- One end is an ink pen and the other is a touch-screen stylus
- Screw cap on both ends
- Space pen – Pressurized (and replaceable) cartridge ink, so you can write in extreme conditions, even underwater, and at any angle!
- Small enough to take anywhere (wear on your keychain or put in your pocket)
- Multiple colors (made from durable carbon fiber and nylon)
I was so happy with this multifunction Nite Ize Pen that I ended up buying five more as EDC Gifts for the family, I think you should too.
#7 EDC Flint Fire Starter
Here’s another cool looking EDC Flint Fire Starter with a waterproof case. At $6 (that’s right!), this is a must add-on to any EDC keychain. The total length is 9.3cm, with a 5cm magnesium rod for scraping off tinder material. Comes in black, green, or orange with a loophole sized for a light lanyard cord.
The magnesium burns at nearly 5500°F and one rod provides more than 3000 fire-starting strikes. The sharp tungsten carbide striking tool is integrated in the package.
#8 Smiths PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
Many readers here will have more than one knife to use at any given time. But do they have a sharp knife to use? I’m as guilty as the next for the poor care of my day-to-day knives. Well, if you don’t have the whetstones and strops to make a razor edge, the next best thing is Smiths PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener. It’s so small you can take it with you, so there is no excuse for not having a sharp knife at your disposal.
