Ultimatest is looking to shrink – and completely redesign – the EDC knife. The EDCest is a tiny, fixed blade that fits into a 3D-printed sheath attached around a watch band. Pushing down on the sheath lifts the knife up for easy access. The EDCest is designed to fit across a variety of watch straps – including Apple Watch bands and GShock 5600/5700 straps – and will be created from one of two different steels (a 420HC equivalent called 1.4034 and a premium version made with Larrin Thomas’s CPM MagnaCut formula, heat treated by Paul Bos). That said, early birds can back the product on Kickstarter today and reserve an EDCest for $39+.
