The Leatherman Wave

Read More

One of the things about gadget shopping over the internet is that understanding the size and proportion of a gadget can be difficult. I’ve always felt that video helps alleviate that problem by giving you a sense of the physical size and function of an object in something more than a two dimensional image. That in mind, welcome to our first video review.

The Leatherman Wave is my favorite full-sized multi-tool on the market. In my opinion, it’s too heavy for pocket carry – I keep mine in a bag along with a set of Leatherman bit drivers. Those drivers along with the handy inboard tools make for one indispensable little package.

Enjoy the review.

The Complete Key Ring

Read More

The idea for this website actually spawned when I was getting ready for spinal surgery. Down on my back, there just wasn’t much I could do physically and for one reason or another I became obsessed with my key ring. I researched the web and studied my priorities and after awhile, put together a set of priorities for my ring.

Above all else, I wanted a key ring with the following characteristics:

1. Light. I knew my setup was going to have bulk, so I decided that the best way to make this liveable was to make the ring as light as possible.

2. It seemed I was always looking for a bottle opener, so I decided my rig would have one integrated.

3. I also often find myself looking for a general duty knife. This setup had to have one.

4. And, of course, everyone is always looking for a pen… Especially when you don’t have one.

5. I love flashlights and felt like this was the perfect opportunity to have one with me at all times.

The best thing about these little knives is their size – thin and blunt. They don’t look like much, but these sharps couldn’t be any more handy. Dirt cheap too… Check em’ out.
