Seiko Black Recraft Chronograph
Save 51%: The Seiko Recraft Chronograph features the solar-powered Seiko cal. V175 quartz movement with date complication, a steel 43.5mm case with screw-down case back, 22mm lugs, 100m of water resistance and a Hardly crystal, as well as LumiBright-coated hands. Now, you can take over 50% off a blacked-out version of the Recraft Chronograph — you get all the same features, but with a black dial and black case, all for just $183. With its matching black, grey and orange NATO strap, this is the type of tactically-inspired chrono that you can wear all year long.

Cap Barbell Set
Save $20: Taking care of yourself can be expensive. Healthy eating, breathable clothes, the inevitable physical therapy sessions, and of course gym memberships all really add up. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great savings to be had. Rather than pay a recurring monthly fee for access to a facility with plenty of weights, you can get your own — and for not that much.
This set from CAP Barbell includes a whole lot for probably less than you’re paying a month to get access to your gym. The 40-pound set comes with four collars, two handles, four 2.5-pound plates, and four 5-pound plates all in a convenient carrying case. Sure, they may not completely replace your current gym, but they could be the first step towards your own home setup.

Fox Knives Suru
Save $53: Blade Show, the annual cutlery industry trade show that takes place in Atlanta, Georgia each year, is just around the corner. Last year, Fox Knives worked with designer Jesper Voxnaes to produce the Suru, the blade that took home the event’s grand prize distinction of Knife of the Year. Coincidentally, that knife is currently on sale at The Drop for 23 percent off.
The Suru won the top prize at Blade Show 2018 because its ultralight skeletonized handle was the first to use a carbon fiber frame lock. Overall, the knife weighs just 2.04 ounces. The version that’s on sale doesn’t use carbon fiber though — but you can find that knife for sale at BladeHQ — it uses aluminum. That bumps its weight up to three ounces but allows for a couple of new colorful finishes.
Beyond the handle, nothing else about the Suru has changed. It has a drop-point blade that’s 2.32 inches long and it wielders can deploy it using either a thumbhole or flipper tab. To build more utility into his small-ish pattern, Voxnaes gave the Suru two choils (the unsharpened finger cutouts where the blade meets the handle) that allow for a firm and full-handed grip. — Tanner Bowden
Sony WH-CH700N Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $70: The Sony WH-CH700N, for example, came out in 2018 and is definitely a cheaper alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3. It delivers good noise-canceling, a long battery life (up to 35 hours on a single charge) and the ability to quick charge. Normally $200, Best Buy is selling them for $70 off.
