CRKT Pilar Large Pocket Knife
Save 34%: Everyday pocket knives are getting smaller, and we like it. Tiny knives are utterly portable, and they can be so without losing out on utility. But sometimes, when the task calls for it, or when you just want it, a big blade is better. That’s why this year, CRKT made a larger version of the Pilar, a knife that has become quite popular since its release in 2017.
The Pilar Large is bigger than its original version, but it still isn’t a massive hunk of metal that’ll weigh heavy in your pocket. It’s also currently on sale at Massdrop for 36 percent off, a notable discount given how new this knife is and how popular the original was. The Pilar Large can be ordered with a stainless steel handle, a G10 handle or, for slightly more money, in an all-black edition that has upgraded steel. — Tanner Bowden
Bonobos Clothing and Accessories
Save 40%:If you haven’t already spent this month’s discretionary income on any number of early-January sales, let us tempt you with something new. Currently at Bonobos, you can save an extra 40 percent on a massive range of already reduced clothing and accessories with the code WINTER40. That means you can pick up a pair of chinos for under $30 and an Italian-wool suit for $300. Browse an impressive selection of pants, shirts, suits and more — this massive sale is worth your time and money. — John Zientek
Nike, Adidas and New Balance Sneakers
Save Up to 70% Just as we leave the holiday season in the rearview, online retailer Sneakersnstuff drops a beast of a sale — 30 to 70 percent off thousands of pieces in its inventory. And while the Holiday Sale features plenty of sweats, hoodies, hats and bags, the best pickings are in the department Sneakersnstuff does best — sneakers. Among the 24 pages worth of shoes are a wealth of great deals on some of the most covetable sneakers of the last year. —Will Price
Common Projects Shoes and Boots
Save 40%:Since its inception in 2004, New York-based footwear brand Common Projects has become something of a cult-favorite. The brand makes luxe versions of classic sneaker silhouettes, utilizing premium materials and Italian craftsmanship. While the brand isn’t as hard to come by as it once was, it’s rare to find substantial markdowns on any of its styles.
But, today is one of those rare occasions. If you head over to Mr Porter, you can save 40 percent on a few different pairs of shoes and boots from Common Projects. The understated styles are available in a range of sizes and prices start at $258 — that’s almost unheard of for this brand. — John Zientek
TRX Suspension Trainer
Save 34%: When arranged thoughtfully and outfitted appropriately, a home gym can be an entirely capable alternative to a pricey gym membership. It doesn’t have to call for heavy and bulky (not to mention expensive) equipment, either. TRX’s original suspension trainer was created with this type of functional minimalism in mind — it was invented by a Navy SEAL squadron commander named Randy Hetrick who was searching for a way to stay fit during deployment.
Hetrick’s original version was made of a jiu-jitsu belt and parachute webbing, but the design has since been refined. The system sets up virtually anywhere, and one size is suitable for upper body, lower body and core workouts. It comes with a mesh bag for storage and travel and includes workout primers developed by professional trainers.
Like an as-seen-on-TV contraption, it can be adapted to various workouts and targeted exercises. Unlike that hulking machine, it can be bought in fewer than 12 installments, especially now that it’s 34 percent off — a savings of $51 — at Huckberry. — Tanner Bowden
Barton Watch Bands
Save 10%: Barton Bands makes one of the largest varieties of watch straps available in a variety of sizes and colors: they’ve got pull-through nylon, two-piece canvas and leather, two-pice rubber dive straps and even an entire range of specialty smartwatch straps. Right now, they’re offering 10% off three or more straps using the code “HELLO2019” at checkout, so if you’ve got a new timepiece in need of strappage, now’s the time to stock up. — Oren Hartov
