Remember the winner of the “most innovative knife” from the 2004 Blade Show? Yeah, me either but this is one cool knife. This knife is quite a conversation starter and even a deal at under $40. Originally designed by Ed Van Hoy as an everyday carry knife with portability and precision in mind. The knife blade swivels out sideways which is very different from most knives. It has an ambidextrous clip, a stainless steel blade, and a special locking...

Construction dudes like coffee, it’s a fact. Not really, but I think the two go hand-in-hand. Now you don’t have to pull your construction truck through the drive-through to get your coffee fix. The Makita CM501D is a coffee maker that is powered by the same rechargeable Li-ion batteries that the Makita power tools use. Genius! the Makita CM501D can make up to 5.3 cups of coffee...

This inexpensive lighter uses a rechargeable battery instead of fuel and a spark instead of a flame. The Tacklife ELY01 will work about 1000 times before needing a recharge and can be charged about 500 times. In other words, it should last a very long time before needing to be retired. The head on Tacklife ELY01 Rechargeable Electric Arc Lighter ($17) is flexible for those tough to reach ignition spots (think bbq grills, gas fireplaces, etc..). Also good...

Start off with a wildly popular knife series, the Kershaw Leek, and add on a Sandvik 14C28N/D2 composite blade and you have another winner. The Kershaw Leek 1660CB ($65) is an assisted opening knife with a very cool composite blade, you can see a wavy copper line running across the blade. The cutting edge is a durable D2 while the spine is Sandvik 14C28N. You get the best of both steel types. On the edge is a high-carbon, high-chromium D2 steel capable of taking and...

Welcome to the future. Even the traditional lighters are fuel-free now, just like the Tesla Model S. The TekFire Fuel-Free Lighter ($19) uses a high-voltage arc of electricity as opposed to a flame. This means that it can start fires in windy and rainy conditions. The TekFire Lighter is powered by a lithium-ion battery, recharges via USB, and includes a lanyard.

One cool product that equals two things I have never heard of before. I certainly didn’t know there was a gadget called an ultrasonic cutter and I have never run into Honda Electronics before either. This Honda Electronics USW-334 Ultrasonic Cutter has an x-acto style knife bald that vibrates at 40,000/sec for some of the smoothes cuts possible. This ultrasonic cutter can be use for paper, flies, plastic, cloth, etc… ...

Plowing snow = not fun. This all electric robotic radio controlled snow plow can tackle most trains and push some serious volume. It is called the ATR-Orbiter and might just make the chore of snow plowing fun. Video of the RC snow plow after the break. ...

While I doubt the “world’s smallest” claim, the Slughause Bullet 02 Mini Tactical LED Flashlight is tiny. Put this tiny LED flashlight on your keychain and forget about it, until  you need a flashlight of course. Not only is this a tiny flashlight it is also waterproof, fireproof (??), tough (aluminum), and bright enough to be seen over 1 mile away (20-lumens). 10mm x 26mm tiny and only 5-grams.    ...
