The Pike Pocket Knife in Rosewood Brass [$120] is a super limited-edition pocket knife from The James Brand that I needed you gentlemen to know about before it’s gone. Only 300 of the Rosewood Brass model were made and they’ll be gone in no time. This is a modern take on the vintage folding knife design that’s clean and simple but highly functional.

Late Spring is the perfect time to pick up a new hat. The Patagonia Fitz Roy Trout Channel Watcher Cap [$35] will be perfect for Summer and keeping that sun out of your face and the bugs out of your hair. The one you see here is Navy but it also comes in Khaki and Grey. The brim’s made with NetPlus® a material constructed from 100% recycled fishing nets and the headband has built-in HeiQ® Fresh durable odor control treatment which also helps with temperature regulation.

Next we’re checking out the The Ridge Topographic Aluminum Wallet [$105] which is an awesome new design which features a mapped out version of the iconic Half Dome. This RFID-blocking wallet holds between 1-12 cards, had a strap for all of your cash, is incredibly lightweight at only 2 ounces, and a favorite style of everyday carry enthusiasts.

Last up today is the OrbitKey Cactus Leather Key Organizer [$40] which holds between 2 to 7 keys and is there to help you save pocket space in ways you didn’t think was possible.
