It was not all that long ago that we brought you a review of one of the more unique wallets Iâ€™ve experienced, the titanium Ridge Wallet (LINK). Â A good wallet is a solid addition to your every day carry (EDC), of course. Â Most folks will think about a flashlight and a knife for their EDC as well. Â Well, Ridge hasnâ€™t come up with a flashlight yet, but they did just announce a knife that is a perfect complement to their wallet – the Ridge Summit Knife.
In many ways, theÂ Ridge Summit Knife carries the same profile as the Ridge Wallet. Â Youâ€™ve got a rectangle (here, made of Grade 5 titanium) for a handle, and youâ€™ve got the same semi-circular cutout. Â On the wallet, thatâ€™s done to help you push the credit cards out. Â Here, on theÂ Ridge Summit Knife, itâ€™s instead where the thumb stud exists to help you flip the blade out. Â Here, the blade is made of D2 steel, and has whatâ€™s know as a drop point profile. Â I wonâ€™t pretend to be super well-versed in the steel specs and profile, but it looks like pretty classic blade profile, and has a good sturdy look to it, as well as being a hefty enough blade to allow it to be sharpened over time without wearing away to nothing.
TheÂ Ridge Summit Knife weighs in at 5 oz, and has a blade length of 3.25â€ – so just be aware of your local knife laws when you determine whether or not you can legally carry this one. Â Presuming you can, theÂ Ridge Summit Knife is a looker. Â Iâ€™d be curious as to how comfortable all those angles and straight lines are in the hand when using the knife, but I do really dig the symmetry, and just how well it matches to the Ridge Wallet. Â Whether or not youâ€™re pairing yours to a wallet from Ridge, you can pick up your ownÂ Ridge Summit Knife for $159Â in either a black/silver combo, or a gunmetal/black. Â These are not considered limited edition from the brand, and theyâ€™ve got about 2/3rds of their initial run currently on hand for your pocket carry. Â ridgewallet.com
