The BuryBunker

The BuryBunker is a steel case designed to hold a pelican type case inside. The case is made from 10 gauge steel and powder-coated for long lasting durability. The lid is fastened with two 7/16 inch stainless steel fasteners and has a watertight silicon gasket which can withstand temperatures as low as -60 degrees F. Perfect for stowing away guns, cash, or even food for when the end of the word comes…

Craziness.

Gerber’s Latest

The trend in affordable daily blades these days seems to be multi-functionality, but in a sleeker package than your typical Swiss Army package. The AO FAST 3.0 is the latest from Gerber that flaunts such sensibilities. It’s a $75 knife that features assisted opening, a bottle opener, and a built in carabiner. I bought one out of curiosity and can report typical Gerber manufacturing quality, but I’m not a fan of the size. It’s a little big (5.3″ closed) and heavy (4.91 Oz) for pocket carry, but I guess that’s what the carabiner is for. It would make a great pack carry blade for you outdoor freaks.

The Quirky Switch

This is pretty bitchin’… Quirky put their noggins towards developing a modular multi-tool. They came up with the Switch, which is essentially a folding tool with interchangeable bits. Depending on your needs and the size of the tool you want to carry, you simply add or omit bits. Ingenious… I wonder if it’s as durable or reliable as a Leatherman?

I think I’ll order one and report back.

Check out all of the details here.

The iPad

I admit it… I folded the minute that Apple announced the pre-order date and my iPad showed up on my door step on the release date. I’ve had a couple of weeks with the device now and I’m pretty damned impressed. Which is saying something as to be honest, I had no idea what I was ordering when I ordered it. Was this a laptop replacement? A giant iPhone? Or something different all together?

Emergency Zippo

Ever tried to start a fire with a couple of sticks? Me neither… That said, some folks need fire in the harshest of conditions and when they least expect it. When that time comes and if you are some freak survivalist, it would be pretty damned cush to have Zippo’s latest in your pocket. It features rayon-made, water-resistant waxed tinder sticks to get things going and a reliable flint-wheel lighter, all packed into a water-resistant, safety-orange metal case.

Weirdo Militia folks and campers can get theirs for $20.

Hidetoshi Bolt-Action Pen

There are people in this world that spend thousands of dollars on pen collections. It’s an interesting and thoughtful underworld as textured as the time-piece market and even the traditional hot rod movement. I’m not at all one of these folks, but I admire them and their collections from afar.

Lately, a new pen design has been hitting the market with fearless abandon. Everyone seems to want one, but not many are available. And if you happen to find one, expect to pay well over $500… For a pen… Even so, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a cooler writing utensil.

It’s the Japanese made Hidetoshi Bolt-Action Pen. Brilliant.
