COMBAR – A Very Serious Survival Multi-tool With The Look To Match

A pocket-size multi-tool can come in handy when you are out in the wild, but we shouldn’t kid ourselves because a pocket knife is not going chop woods. It simply don’t cut it and that’s precisely why ex-special operations veterans over at Aclim8 Inc. designed the COMBAR. No. It is not a crowbar, although it may sounded like one. COMBAR is a new kind of multi-tool that defies the convention of being small and handy because, in reality, bigger is always better.

I Can’t Believe I Am Saying This… But This Miniature Cleaver Is Cute

The word ‘cute’ is hardly applicable to knives, but the Blanka Pocket Cleaver Knife by JHO Knives is exactly that: cute. The cuteness is not immediately apparent until you realize that it is actually has a big blade form of a cleaver, but at a size that fits in the palm of your hand (it measures just 13 cm or about 5.12 inches). It is that small, which kind of qualifies it as a pocket knife. The only thing about this “pocket knife” is, it is fixed blade; not foldable or retractable, and it is a kitchen knife that is also capable of chopping branches and wood if the need arises.

Caswell “Morphing Karambit” Utility Knife Makes Switchblade Looks A Toy

Calling all pocket knife and avid camping enthusiasts. This is a premium pocket knife you will want to have in your knife. I know. The look is impressive, but the Caswell “Morphing Karambit” (MKV2) Utility Knife impresses with more than just the alien-ish appearance. It is how it flicks open when your hand is securely holding it. Made no mistake, though. This isn’t a switchblade. It is not an automatic knife, nor is it an assisted-open knife (which are illegal in many places). Continue reading Caswell “Morphing Karambit” Utility Knife Makes Switchblade Looks A Toy

Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk

To be honest, I have no idea if I should file this under ‘Living, Camping’ or ‘Autos, Cars’ because, New Zealander Gavin Shoebridge’s (AKAKiwiEV.com) kitchen-in-trunk is part car mod, part camping hack, or something of sort. So, yeah. Gavin did something almost unimaginable here: he actually installed a fully functional kitchen into the back of his electric car. And mind you, he did it on a car, not a van. Or should we say, a very, very tiny electric car. The very, very tiny electric car here is a 2011 Peugeot iOn which, if you think about it, is quite a feat in itself given the size Gavin has to work with. I mean, seriously, there was clearly no luxury of space like a van or SUV has. Continue reading Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk

Marvel Will Probably Not Give You A Black Panther Knife, So Here’s The Closest Thing You Will Get

No. The Black Panther Titanium Micro Blade by SMRT Gadget you see here, though inspired by Marvel superhero Black Panther, is not affiliated in anyway. It does not hail from the fictional African state of Wakanda, neither is the blade crafted out of fictional super metal vibranium, but it does tout itself as the “world’s first bulletproof” titanium tactical EDC pocket knife. I guess whether or it is bulletproof does not really matter. What matter is, it is functional and of course, looks dope and those are exactly what this pocket knife embodies. Continue reading Marvel Will Probably Not Give You A Black Panther Knife, So Here’s The Closest Thing You Will Get
