They’re available online starting at $15.

Ceramic Escape Knife Could Come In Handy If You’re A High-Risk Target


We can’t imagine that most people spend any amount of time thinking about what they’ll do if they ever get abducted. Yet these people do exist, or products like the Ceramic Escape Knife (CEK) would never get made. It’s a tiny blade, about the size of a pinky finger and weighing about as much as a penny (2.5 grams), that stays sharp 10 times longer than steel and will never rust. You’re supposed to hide it in a place that your would-be abductors would never think to check, and use it to cut your ties if you’re lucky enough for these to be made out of something other than metal. It’s all of $15, which is a really tiny amount to pay if you ever plan to venture if you’re going somewhere unsafe.

Better yet, not going somewhere unsafe is free.

Datrex 3600 Food Bars Can Save Your Life When Stranded In The Wild

If you’re about to embark on the sort of journey that could have you away from civilization for a prolonged period of time, you probably want to spend some time looking at the gear you take with you.

The bars are ready to eat and do not provoke thirst, and each of the Datrex 3600 will provide, yes, 3,600 calories of sustenance. That’s about enough for one day’s worth of walking through a forest, looking for help, though of course you’ll also need water. They have a 5 year shelf life and no, we have no idea what they taste like though some reviewers seem to have come away not completely disgusted. And lets be honest, it’s probably better than anything Bear Grylls would have you eating…

It’s $8.45 for one package, which contains 18 chunks of 200 calories each.
