Bastion GAMUT Folder

The new GAMUT Folder is a collaboration piece between GAMUT Resolutions and Bastion. It features a very unique tanto-ish blade shape with a blunt, chisel-like tip. The 4″ blade is ground from S35VN steel. It opens via a flipper and the blade rides on ceramic bearings. The GAMUT’s frame is machined from titanium and the frame lock features a replaceable steel insert.

This knife was designed based on the experience of Bob Keller of GAMUT Resoltions. 10% of each knife sold goes to the Special Operations Care Fund, a 501(c)3 charity supporting the families of wounded and killed Special Operations Forces.

Partizan Knife Sale at Bastion – Save 50% Today Only

Bastion is offering their Partizan knives at 50% off today only. The Partizan is one of my favorite every day carry knives. It is extremely slim and light with classic lines but also very stout so it blurs the line between gentleman’s knife and tactical folder.

All three variations are on sale. Each one features a slightly recurve, drop point blade ground from D2 steel. The handle options include G10 with a liner lock, sculplted carbon fiber with a titanium frame lock, and a full titanium frame lock.

Every Day Carry Crossbow – Bastion

Oh, you EDC a fidget spinner? That’s cool, I guess. It’s not fully functional, toothpick launching, mini crossbow cool but I guess it keeps you occupied.

Bastion is now offering the MINI CROSSBOW – a fully functional, mini crossbow that shoots toothpicks (which are flammable by the way, I’m just saying). The tiny steel crossbow has a wire string that can be drawn back with the your thumbs, dropped into a slot, and then released with a pull of the trigger. It even comes with a tiny display stand so your office friends know they better start bringing eye protection to work.

And just so no one has to say it in the comments… “You’ll put your eye out!”

BRAZA EDC Folder from Bastion

Bastion just launched their newest EDC knife and the timing is great (for you) because they also happen to be hosting a Valentine’s Day sale (see image below).

The BRAZA EDC Folder follows on the success of their PARTIZAN EDC Folder. The PARTIZAN was more of a slim, sleek, gentleman’s knife with tactical sensibility but the BRAZA is larger, more substantial, but but still very refined. It features a 3.75″ D2 blade with a sort of clipped, bull nose shape and a very tall primary grind.

The handle is stainless steel and incorporates the frame lock and a ball bearing system that makes the blade fire very smoothly via the integrated flipper. There is a lanyard loop built into the back spacer and a pocket clip set up for right side tip up carry.

Bastion EDC Spinners

If you are one of those people who fidgets constantly or has to do something to keep their hands busy, you probably know about spinners. Every day carry items that you can fidget with have been around since the dawn of time whether its a “worry stone” or a mechanical pen.

Spinners like the new EDC Spinners from Bastion are like those items but with a dash of precision machining, premium materials, and cool guy design sensibility thrown in. They are perfectly balanced objects that are meant to spin on a bearing for a long, long time. You can spin them to your heart’s content. It sounds strange if you haven’t tried it but it can be very satisfying – like spinning a top but more hands on.

Bastion’s EDC Spinners are machined from titanium because that is how Bastion rolls… or spins. They also have textured blue G-10 inlays and rotate on a precision ceramic bearing. They are available in 2 sizes and gold or silver anodized finishes.

Check out the EDC Spinners at BastionGear.com and see their Instagram feed for video of the EDC Spinners in action.

Bastion Launches New Site and the Partizan Folding Knife is Now Available

Bastion’s new premium EDC gear website is now live at BastionGear.com. The new site puts their line of unique, custom every day carry items front and center. All my favorites are there including their carbon fiber combs and the excellent Carboneer which is one of my most indispensable pieces of daily use gear.


The new site is good looking, easy to navigate, and has a handful of new products, the most exciting of which is Bastion’s new Partizan Folding Knife. They showed this sleek gentleman’s tactical knife at Blade Show and have been teasing it on their social media channels since then. Now it is finally available. You can read our previous post for additional details.


Everything about the Partizan is built to exude class right down to the custom designed boxes that encase them when they arrive on your door step. The design is thin, lightweight, and svelte. The blade moves smoothly when opening and close the knife.

That Partizan is available in three models all of which feature a saber ground D2 steel blade with a mild recurve, spear point blade shape. Each of the three models has a different handle treatment: full titanium frame lock, carbon fiber scale with titanium frame lock, and G-10 scales over liner lock.

Bastion EDC Valet Tray

I put my flashlight, pocket knife, multitool, cell phone, keys, and similar EDC gear down in roughly the same place every day. When I don’t, it usually leads to me having to tear apart the house to find something. That is exactly why a valet tray is such a good idea for people like us who stuff their pockets with EDC gear daily. It serves as the perfect place to collect all that gear so you always know where it is (and your wife doesn’t have to remind you not to leave your stuff on every flat surface in the house every other day).

Bastion’s new Black PU Leather EDC Valet Tray looks great and won’t break the bank. It folds flat so you can travel with it and it even has a snap-in divider. The divider is handy so you can keep things like keys from being dropped on or rubbing against more sensitive gear like your phone.

Gentleman’s Carbon Fiber Comb from Bastion and Engineerable

Bastion and Engineerable are veterans of Kickstarter. Both have successful campaigns on the popular crowdfunding platform under their belt. Their first collaboration, the CARBONEER, raised over 5 times it’s initial goal and shipped on time. I have happen to have one and I use it daily.

bastion gentlemans comb

Bastion and Engineerable have launched a new Kickstarter campaign for another slick piece of carbon-fibery EDC goodness. The Gentleman’s Carbon Fiber Comb is machined from carbon fiber and hand finished. The comb is available in 4 styles that include a solid carbon fiber design and three different skeletonization options. It features an integrated finger loop and clip that allow you to carry it in a number of ways.

They are looking for $5000 to fully fund the project. If they can hit their $25,000 stretch goal, they will double everyone’s rewards (example: if you back the project at a 1 comb level, you will get 2 combs).

Carbon fiber makes everything better. Check out the Gentleman’s Carbon Fiber Comb Kickstarter page.

Carbon Fiber EDC Comb from Bastion

I never had reason to carry a comb until I started keeping a beard or goatee. Sometimes you just need a comb to tame those coarse beard hairs that seem to have a mind of their own. Sure, you could carry a plastic comb but why would you when you can get one made from carbon fiber at Bastion! I am not sure anyone needs a carbon fiber comb but I’ll be darned if I don’t want one anyway.

Check out the new, probably unnecessary, but still completely awesome Carbon Fiber EDC Comb from Bastion.
