Eclipse Is Probably The Craziest Morphing Nano Blade EDC Knife Ever

How small can an everyday carry knife gets for it to remain usable? Well, apparently, the answer is very, very small as proven by Eclipse Morphing Nano Blade EDC Knife dished out by Fulcrum Knives. When collapsed, it has a round form that is a tad larger than a Walking Liberty silver dollar coin and measures mere 6 mm thin. Looking at how it opens and closes, I have to concur with its creator that it is the most innovative EDC knife we have seen thus far.

Cardboard Camping Tent Solves The Problem Of Plastic Tents At Festivals

OK. This comes as a news to me. Pardon me because, I have never attended festivals that required me to pitch a tent. I am talking about music festivals where cheap plastic tents are prevalent. The use of tents appeared to be harmless – that is after the festival ends. Festival goers tend to ditch their tents right there and then, thereby resulting in a pile of plastic waste that is hardly environmental-friendly. Understanding this, a Dutch company, KarTent, wants to change this and they intend to do so with KarTent, a temporary accommodation that is made out of cardboard.

Tarp-based Wheelbarrow Is A Like A Giant Dustpan On Wheel

Forget about traditional wheelbarrows because, Allsop WheelEasy is here to change how you load up stuff onto a wheelbarrow. While WheelEasy stays faithful the the traditional wheelbarrow geometry, i.e. the triangular geometry with a pair of handles on one end and a wheel serving as the fulcrum point and mobility, it is anything but traditional. Instead of the usual steel or hard plastic tray or bed, it has a vinyl-coated tarpaulin for its bed but lack of leg support which allows it to be laid flat on the ground to facilitate easy load up of whatever you desire, be it rocks, soil or whatever.

Die Mosquitoes Candle Keeps Mozzies From Destroying Your Idyllic Day

Not all people love the great outdoor, but no one adores mosquitoes. That’s for sure. Mad scientists may beg to differ though, especially if the mozzies were sealed inside a prehistoric amber. Anywho, mosquitoes are bad (mostly), but not all of them and some of them actually plays an important part in the larger ecosystem. It is indeed a Hedgehog’s dilemma. Regardless, no one would want these pesky blood suckers to dampen their day which is why there is Die Mosquitoes Candle. Continue reading Die Mosquitoes Candle Keeps Mozzies From Destroying Your Idyllic Day

Max Pump 2: A Tiny Pump That Will Literally Save Your Breath

What is the first thing you do when you reach the campsite after setting up your tent and the cosy outdoor air mattress? Probably sleep. Why?

Max Pump 2 is a breath-saving camping/traveling gadgets that take the legwork out of inflating anything thing that needs to be inflated, be it a boat or a mattress.

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

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.
