FLAWLESS FORM AND FUNCTION
Sleek, blackened, and semi-transparent, the Urban EDC F5.5 in Jade G10 is finally here. Designed alongside our friend and custom knife maker extraordinaire, Jesper Voxnaes – this knife exceeded all our expectations. And look good doing it.
Inspired by the endless versatility of a sailor's (or in this case, elite stormtrooper's) knife and based on the highly sought-after custom Vox F5, the Urban EDC F5.5 hits the sweet spot between Jesper's minimalistic sensibilities and his mastery of maximizing a blade's functionality.
Designed with exploration in mind, the Urban EDC F5.5 is smaller and more compact than the custom Vox F5 and equipped with a stout, 2.7" M390 blade steel, with the iconic Vox modified sheepsfoot shape. It also features a blacked-out finish for enhanced wear resistance and stealthiness.
Intentionally robust, the blade stock is 4mm thick, which gives it outstanding strength and stability. Paired with the impeccably flat-ground cutting edge, the Urban EDC F5.5 excels at everything from slicing and precision work to chopping, piercing, and other heavy-duty chores that other blades shy away from.
Inspiring maximum confidence in hand, the lightweight and high-vis orange G10 handles are gently contoured and designed to fill your hand – yet possess enough affordance to be held and handled in a variety of ways.
The Urban EDC F5.5 also comes with a generous finger choil that allows you to choke up on the blade for maximum leverage and control – which is especially useful for precision and detailed cuts.
Flawlessly functional, impressively compact, and beautiful to hold and behold – the Urban EDC F5.5 offers up all the performance and attention to detail of a custom blade without the need to break the bank.
And if we may say so ourselves, the Urban EDC F5.5 might just be Jesper's best design yet – and we are pretty darn confident that you will agree once you get this bad boy in hand. So, what are you waiting for? Grab this before they are gone for good.

I ordered this version of the F5.5 expecting not to like the orange and I was right. IMO this colourway makes the knife look a bit like a toy. I totally get why someone would have a hi viz version of this awesome knife for the bush though. That's all good. My plan was to make this one a user, as the blacked-out version I have is just too sexy to handle. So I took it apart and dyed the scales, gave it a tune-up, put it back together and what came out was even hotter than the black version! Honestly. Charcoal brown with the matt black DLC blade and hardware — it's even better than I had imagined and a million miles away from the pumpkin special. It sits real sweetly in the collection too. Don't worry though, it's going into service alongside the similarly sized AD20.5 — that was the deal.
