If the U.S. military trusts Gerber tools for the deadly work of bomb disarmament, you can certainly count on Gerber for your silly civilian chores. All the tools in the Combat Engineer’s Tool Kit are stealth black – including the D.E.T. multi-plier, M-11 flashlight & concertina wire cutter. This kit also includes three titanium mine probes, but for you, those will mostly be used for cooking weenies over the campfire. You hope.
Here’s a bright idea – sorry, had to say it. Compact fluorescent bulbs are better than old-school incandescent ones. In fact, they save 80% more energy. They last much longer, too. And now, Plumen has added some beauty. Instead of hiding the bent tubing, Plumen has spread it out giving a touch of elegance to this intelligent technology.
Rock on in the afterlife! Instead of a hole in the ground, have your ashes pressed into a vinyl record that your friends & family can listen to your at your funeral party. Whoa…we just used the phrase “funeral party”…this really is weird. Custom soundscapes, portraits, even your own personal message can be recorded for your last hit record.
Ever been sitting in traffic at a dead stop and felt yourself snapping? You know you have. You start thinking about smashing everything, taking people out. This fantasy comes to life on-screen in Falling Down. A stressed-out Michael Douglas cracks, steps out of his car & goes to town. As he walks through L.A. leaving a trail of damage, destruction and ironic quotables, he is pursued by retired cop, Robert Duvall.
Do you know a hit when you hear one? Quincy Jones does. This music mogul has been nominated for more Grammy Awards than anyone, ever. He even produced Michael Jackson’s Thriller. So, his collab with Harman on a high-end, signature line of AKG headphones makes perfect sense. There are three styles to suit your tastes – from the Q701 over-the-ear model to lightweight earbuds – all feature incredible, pro-quality audio.
“Who you gonna call?” Yeah, Ghostbusters. This 1984 comedy was an instant classic, reaching deep into popular culture with its soundtrack, memorabilia and quotable stupidity from Akroyd & Bill Murray. Now their car, the Ecto 1 is up for auction. The totally custom, ghost-catching 1959 Cadillac ambulance will be worth every penny of its going price considering Hollywood, bereft of ideas, is probably planning another sequel right now.
It’s carried in a sheath, but still, wearing a knife around your neck sounds a little dangerous. Then again, you carry a cell phone emitting microwave radiation in your pants pocket, so it’s all risky. The lightweight 2.88-inch blade, made of carbon steel, stays super sharp. So, it’s a good thing there’s an indent on the underside of the handle to keep your fingers out of the way and jimping (ridges) on the top for thumb grip.
This is probably the most macho kitchen accessory we’ve ever seen. It looks like Bob Vila and Gordon Ramsay teamed up to make a bread slicer. With design cues from a carpenter’s mitre-saw and full stainless construction, this slicer almost makes you feel sorry for the poor loaf of bread about to be chopped & eaten.
Old is the new new…or something like that. Action sports timekeepers, Nixon has created a fresh collection of watches designed with a finish that rubs off from wear and tear, giving each timepiece a unique look as it ages. Four Gunship styles are available & ready for active duty, including a burly chronograph and 3 other Japanese quartz-driven, analog models.
