Ever watched Man vs. Wild & wondered how Bear Grylls manages to MacGyver his way out every sticky situation? The answer is cheating. The guys on the production crew drop their cameras and hand him things like the Brook & Hunter Mo-Tool Axe. When he’s made the cut, chop or hammered something out of his way – Bear hands back the tool and the filming resumes. Just a theory, of course. This compact multi-tool with straight & saw blades, pliers, hatchet, hammer and more – would definitely come in handy in a pinch.

Now, you can get your very own & fuel up for a focused day with a few “shots” of caffeine.
Christopher Walken in one the most perfectly cast roles of his career: the slimy, sinister crook father of Sean Penn who makes robbery and crime look like fun.

When he sees Walken kill a man, he has second thoughts. That’s when the story really starts cooking. Based on a true story, At Close Range also features 80s angel, Mary Stuart Masterson & Sean’s brother, Chris Penn.

The book also includes a new introduction by author, Ross Bolton, who puts it all in perspective.
