When it comes to your every day carry, the choices for the ideal pocketknife are endless. However, if you’re looking an EDC with a sleek all-black tactical edge, consider the Gerber Mini Covert Automatic ($125). Featuring a black lightweight hard anodized aluminum handle and a S30V partially serrated stainless steel blade, the Mini Covert is everything you love about the full-sized version but in a more pocketable size. With a blade length at under 3”, you won’t be able to call yourself Rambo but the heat-treated blade will hold a sharp edge whether your jungle involves cardboard boxes, paracord or tropical undergrowth. There’s no need to worry about self-inflicted pocket trauma either as the knife features a slide lock that displays red when the knife is live. Additionally, the Mini-Covert won’t overwhelm your pocket, and the removable pocket clip allows for convenient and discreet carry. Just don’t forget to check with your local state laws first.
