One lesson that’s stuck with us since childhood: it pays to see what’s up with the new kid on the block. Nowadays, we’ve graduated from arrowhead collections to EDC arsenals, but that same child-like sense of wonder still grabbed hold when we first saw what was coming out of the mind—and workshop—of Joseph Vero back in 2020. The all-around gear whiz, relentless tinkerer, and founder of upstart EDC brand Vero Engineering has cooked up some of the most sought-after knives and tools in the biz. We couldn’t be happier (or luckier) to have gotten our hands on a fresh batch. Pro tip: these tend to sell out real quick, so don’t wait too long to pick out your favorite.
