Etsy is amazing. Where else could someone sell something as beautifully ridiculous as a piece of raw wood with a clock in it? The little quartz-drive clock is German-made and the wood, well, that was made in the forest through a process called photosynthesis.
Buying a water-housing for your SLR camera will cost you some serious coin and chances are pretty good that the camera in your iPhone 4 or 4S shoots a comparable quality image. Therefore, the Tat7 waterproof case is a brilliant idea. It costs a lot less than a big, bulky housing and is scuba-worthy down to depths of 100 feet. You can even use SIRI on your 4S for texting and messaging without taking it out of the case.

Well, we told you. Now try to resist.

These knives are made entirely of carbon fiber. That means they’re super lightweight, each of the three models weighing in at less than one ounce. The thing is, carbon fiber isn’t something that holds a sharp blade. Carbon Fiber Gear offers these knives not for cutting but rather self-defense. They’re for stabbing. Puncturing. Immobilizing the enemy. Kinda hellish, sure, but as the saying goes, “better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.”
