This Titanium EDC Folding Knife has a uniquely cyberpunk aesthetic that we just can’t ignore

Looking like a prop from a sci-fi movie, the Grouper utility knife comes with a stunning design featuring a titanium construction, a parallel-linkage opening mechanism with ball-bearing pivots, and should you choose, an absolutely breathtaking rainbow finish. The knife, which measures a mere 4.3 inches (110mm) when closed, comes with a carabiner clip on one end, and a tungsten carbide glass-breaker on the other end. Open it out, and the now 6.2-inch-long knife reveals its TAJIMA V-REX II blade on the inside, perfect for opening boxes, slicing envelopes, or doing more rogue cyberpunk-worthy stuff like slicing wires and cutting seatbelts.

The Grouper is designed by Octavia Liu, who runs her own EDC Etsy shop out of her home and workshop in Xi’an, China. Like any of the EDC Liu makes, the Grouper sports a titanium alloy body that’s more than impervious to rough use.  The knife flips open and close in a unique style thanks to the linkage system built into it, and uses ball-bearing pivots for a smooth-like-butter operation that takes the knife a mere 0.5 seconds to open. Once open, a nifty locking clip on the top keeps the knife’s blade intact until you’re done and ready to close your Grouper.

The Grouper Utility Knife is available in Silver, Black, or a Rainbow finish that’s a sure shot crowd favorite. This is achieved by a process of anodization that creates an everlasting coating on the knife that never dulls or peels off.

The Grouper uses a replaceable TAJIMA V-REX II tempered steel blade on the front. The blade’s sharp edge holds up wonderfully well against everything from cardboard boxes and tape to even tougher materials like paracords and seat belts. Designed as a utility knife with tactical and safety capabilities too, the knife even features a glass breaker point on its body that can be used for shattering windows during emergencies (combined with the seatbelt cutter this is quite the rescue tool).  The Grouper weighs a mere 78 grams (2.7 ounces) and easily fits into most pockets, but additionally also packs a carabiner clip on its rear end, for hooking to your backpack or around the belt loop of your pants. After all, is an EDC truly an EDC if it doesn’t have a carabiner clip?

This EDC utility knife transforms the same blade into a scraper at the push of a button

A utility knife is one essential EDC virtually everyone has used at some point in their life, and this particular everyday carry brings a unique trick to the intended function, each one you will ultimately appreciate.

ToughBuilt’s Scraper Utility Knife on first look seems like any other typical utility knife, but wait till you delve into more of its details. This everyday carry utility tool doubles as a scraper tool knife for getting rid of those hard-to-remove adhesive marks, old paint stains from furniture, labels from windows and mirrors, or anything stubborn that’s getting hard to get rid of off the surfaces.

The switchblade-like form of the utility knife flips the sharp blades in a 90 degrees orientation for a scraper knife function, ideal for workmen and professional handymen. The retractable steel blade of the knife slides seamlessly in and out of the rugged housing (six-inch handle) and can be taken out or replaced when the edges go blunt.

The changeover utility of the EDC comes into effect with the push of a small button hidden in the sliding mechanism of the rugged metal handle. Orientation of the blade is completely changed as it then faces forward – ready to scrap out any undesirable bobs or bits that are driving you crazy for quite some time now.

Apart from these two primary functions, the ToughBuilt Scraper Utility Knife also acts as a can opener. This function can be accessed from the tail end of the EDC’s handle. The carry loop makes it ultra-easy to keep handy at all times, something that outdoorsy people will appreciate.

The Scraper Utility Knife is available now for purchase at a price tag of $18, and it comes with five spare blades to make the swap in a jiffy.
