Wednesday, January 16th, 2013


The Zippo 4-in-1 Woodsman is a combination bow saw, mallet, stake puller, and hatchet. The hatchet sheath doubles as a hand grip when the saw is in use, and the saw itself can be stored in the handle, which is made from light fiberglass reinforced nylon and is approximately 20″ long. The hatchet blade is 5″ and made from steel.


Grenade Bottle Opener On Kickstarter

Monday, December 31st, 2012

A user on Kickstarter, known only as Brad, created this grenade-shaped multi-tool called, appropriately enough, the Bottle Grenade. Its primary function is as a combination twist off/pry off (pop top) bottle opener, however it also includes a wrench and hex slot along with four holes for use with a keyring or paracord. It’s machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, and based on donation level can include custom engraving and/or the realistic grenade pattern.

The MultiCam sheaths made by LBT for the SOG Voodoo Hawk LE have finally started shipping out. They’re made from nylon with a button snap closure and a belt loop.

Camillus Les Stroud “Survivorman” Machete

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

This is the Les Stroud Camillus SK Jungle Machete. Designed specifically for survival purposes, the SK Jungle features an 11 3/4 inch long, 2/10 inch thick 440-stainless steel blade which is treated with Carbonitride Titanium, a proprietary process that bonds formulated titanium and chromium nitride to the steel, giving it a surface up to three times harder than the base steel in addition to a more corrosive resistant finish and friction free cutting surface. The blade has a slight inward sweep for better capturing whatever needs to be cut, and the flat tip is sharpened for use with digging and smaller cutting chores.

The 5 1/2 inch handle is constructed from polypropylene with high traction TRP rubber inserts for added grip traction, even in cold weather, and features a lanyard hole. The pommel is checkered hard steel for non-slip hammering which makes it safer from slipping off a stuck object. The SK Jungle comes with a ballistic nylon sheath with built-in fire starter and a nylon mesh pocket.


Bear Grylls Parang Recall

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

I was at REI today and I saw a recall notice for the Gerber Gear Bear Grylls Parang. It seems that there’s a weakness in the area where the blade meets the handle. This can cause either the blade or the handle to break during use which poses a laceration hazard. If you happened to have purchase one of these blades, you can register at this page, where Gerber will process your info, send out a prepaid FedEx box, and send you a replacement parang some weeks later. Given the quality of the blade, I’d rather receive a refund, but you get what you get, I suppose.

M48 Apocalypse Series Tactical Tomahawk

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

While it has a bright green ‘zombie’ handle, the M48 Apocalypse Series Tomahawk does have some good features going for it. The 8″ head, constructed from 2Cr13 stainless steel, has two sharpened blades, the axe and spike. The 30% nylon reinforced handle secures the head with three separate bolts and is wrapped in black paracord. The M48 also comes with a nylon belt sheath with belt loop and snap closure buttons. It’s a United Cutlery piece, and they do offer a ‘non-zombified’ all-black version as well, if the Apocalypse model isn’t your thing.

Available on Amazon.com.


Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

The ADAPPT XT, a multi-function iPhone 4 utility case, is an impressive-looking project currently open for funding on Indiegogo. The poly-carbonate case protects the phone from drops, nicks, and scratches and houses both a 1.5″ utility blade and a multi-tool card. The card currently functions as a 10 piece wrench set, flat head screwdriver, ruler, and bottle opener. If the project gets off the ground, both the multi-tool card and knife slot will have options of customization such as a mirror or magnifying glass, and scissors or a USB drive. Additionally, there are plans to release a case for the recently announced iPhone 5.

Each Glowbar is coated in a Silicate-Aluminium-Oxide-based powder that glows up to ten times brighter than conventional glow in the dark items. It’s available in 12″ and 24″ versions, with 2% of profits going to the EFF, a non-profit that fights for technological freedom.

Louisville Decapitron

Monday, October 31st, 2011

We here on TFB have been putting out a lot of Zombie-themed content in the recent weeks, since it’s the month of Halloween and all, and we figured another article on undead killin’ implements wouldn’t hurt since there’s no kill like overkill. Speaking of which, meet the Louisville Decapitron. A creation of Gord of Gordsgarage, the Decapitron is the melding of a large blade and a Louisville Slugger, a combination that makes for a powerful anti-Zombie weapon. The business end is meant for any undead looking to make a snack of your innards, while the blunt portion is meant to beat away any humans going after your survival stash. Anyone else getting a ‘Dead Rising 2‘ vibe from this thing, or is it just me?

Iain Sinclair’s Product Lineup 2011

Friday, October 21st, 2011

We already wrote about the Iain Sinclair Cardsharp 2, a utility knife that folds out from a light, credit card size that can easily be carried inside a wallet or kit bag. As part of their 2011 collection, the company also offers more in a series of powerful, yet similarly credit card-sized products.

Eon Extreme

The Eon Extreme features the highest power to weight ratio of any flashlight in the world at 230 lumens of pocket flood light with a weight of only 45 grams. It’s constructed from Aluminum with a black gun metal anodizing and has a built-in rechargeable Lithium Polymer power source.

The JawSaw

Monday, September 26th, 2011

The JawSaw is a unique in that it’s a chainsaw contained within a blade housing. It features a weight of 8 lbs and a bar length of 6″, with an optional extender that increases the total length to 12ft. Also included is an auto tension feature and automatic chain oiler with oil level indicator. All features and technical aspects aside, it’s a freaking metal-toothed mouth that uses a chainsaw tongue to cut **** up! Make the housing a bit wider and we could be looking at the first practical zombie fighting chainsaw.

Wicked Lasers Spyder III Krypton

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Currently under review by Guinness World Records for the title of ‘World’s Brightest Handheld Laser’, the Spyder III Krypton is, quite frankly, laser overkill. It features a green beam 8000 times brighter than the Sun (if directly looking at the dot) with a visible range of 85 miles, easily breaking the Earth’s atmosphere; the makers even warn not to point it at satellites [or airplanes, people and animals], since the beam could potentially damage them. It also features a rechargeable lithium ion battery, 9 operation modes such as ‘SOS’ and ‘Beacon’, a 100% unlimited duty cycle, an aircraft-grade aluminum chassis, and SmartSwitch technology, for keeping the beam out of the wrong hands. There are also optional attachments like the expanded lens kit, which adds a variety of patterns and shapes. Sadly, despite its completely-legal-to-own status, the Spyder III Krypton isn’t very practical, since it’s just too damn powerful to use as a laser pointer or gunsight.

This is a nifty little 6-in-1 multitool that attaches to a keychain. It features a bottle opener, Phillips Driver #2, Flathead driver #2 and 1/4″ Hex Nut Driver. If you were wondering where the other two tools were, the Phillips head doubles as a punch and the Flathead doubles as a prybar. You can even order a custom Screwpop with laser engraving and custom bit head patterns, depending on your needs. Available in chrome and black.

TakTik LunaTik Woodland Camouflage iPOD Nano Watch

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

The common iPod may be slowly dying off, but if you happen to have a Nano 6th Generation, then you may have found its second calling. LunaTik offers a number of premium conversion kits for turning an iPod Nano 6th gen 8/16GB into a dedicated primary wristwatch, although the classic TakTik is my personal favorite, for its woodland inspired camouflage pattern, which due to the manufacturing process is unique for each watch. The kit itself features an anodized housing made from aerospace grade aluminum, solid steel hardware that is PVD plated, and straps made from high grade silicone rubber. The result is a fairly inexpensive digital watch with a number of useful features.

Sawblade Slingshot

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

I’m not quite sure it tops his Machete Slingshot, but Youtuber JorgSprave has come close with his newest creation, the Sawblade Slingshot. With the clever use of a dowel and a strip of rubber, he’s created a way to fire consistently rotating sawblades, which is mandatory for stabilization, as you’ll see in the video. I think it’s obvious who’s high on the ‘People We Want To Know In Case Of The Apocalypse’ list.
