The point of owning a slim folding knife is that it’s always at hand and ready to effectively perform everyday tasks — whether that’s opening packages, doing small chores around the house or handling anything that might come up on your weekly quarantine errands. If you’re looking for a new blade or are in need of an upgrade to your everyday carry, Tekto’s Juliett is a great place to start. The Juliett is Tekto’s first venture into the slim knife category, which might be surprising to some since the brand nailed it. Forged from M390 super steel, the blade features a slim and sleek profile. Its handle is crafted from treated redwood that looks and feels great and is reminiscent of Tekto’s Amber — a fan-favorite knife that we also love. Plus if you shop now, you can take 10 percent off the Juliett with the code GP10 at check out.

Black Diamond Spot 325 Headlamp
Save 25%: Black Diamond updated the Spot last year to the Spot 325 — it’s smaller, brighter and has a second button that makes for improved operation. The only element of the headlamp not to see an uplift is its price; the Spot 325 still costs just $40. Right now, however, it’s even cheaper than that. Thanks to a sale at REI, you can snag this camping essential for just $30.
Now’s the Best Time to Get Discounted Hiking Boots for Summer
Save 30%: Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer hiking season, and if you’re in need of new hiking boots, there isn’t a better time to get them.
Astell & Kern ACRO L1000
Save $224: The Astell & Kern ACRO L1000 is an all-in-one desktop amplifier, headphone amp and DAC that’s made almost completely out of aluminum — it’s beautiful. Not only is it a hi-fi lover’s dream (capable of playing hi-res audio files up to 32bit/384kHz without downsampling, and it supports native DSD playback), but it’s got one of the biggest, boldest and most satisfying volume knobs we’ve ever felt. The ACRO L1000 normally costs $899, but the discount code knocks well over $200 off that. It’s still expensive, for sure, but it’s the best deal on this gorgeous amp that we’ve ever seen. Just make sure to use the code “MEMDAY” at checkout.
UE Megaboom 3
Save $80: The Megaboom 3 is one of Ultimate Ear’s biggest and best portable speakers. Normally $200, you can buy the Megaboom 3 for $120 on Amazon right now in either black or blue colors. It’s the cheapest that Megaboom 3 has ever been. (Not to mention, it’s the same price that Amazon is currently selling the smaller Boom 3 for.)
