Tactical Shovel Will Get The Job Done


Doomsday preppers are always on the lookout for the next tool that will supposedly help them survive the collapse of civilization.

– The shovel head is made of tempered 2Cr13 stainless tool steel with a hard, black oxide coating.
– Perfect for camping and outdoors use, light chopping, or for use as a defensive weapon in an emergency situation.
– The shovel point edge is sharpened, with a partially serrated edge on one side, and a concave chopping edge on the other.

The Nemo Special Ops Drill Would Look Great In James Bond’s Toolset


We’re not sure why a company would sell a drill “for special forces” to the regular public, but we suspect it’s just a marketing gimmick. It’s a nice one, to boot, since we’re definitely intrigued by this all-black drill that also works underwater up to 100m.

The Nemo SPECIAL OPS (SO24-6Li-100) is catered to professionals working in special operations and the special forces. With a depth rating of up to 100m (328ft), this drill has a salt-water resistant ALL-BLACK paint job with no logo for maximum concealment. Its 1000-watt brushless technology ensures maximum efficiency and durability. It comes with a durable carrying case, battery charger, pressure valve and pump to pressurize the drill, and two 6Ah batteries, to make sure you’re ready for jobs that require extra power and time. The Nemo SPECIAL-OPS comes with additional accessories geared towards the tasks carried out by special forces.
Nemo SPECIAL OPS accessories include a diving headlamp, a diving tool belt with tool bag, and a handy waterproof bag to keep your battery charger dry.

It’s not like we’re about to go don a wetsuit and drill something underwater, but it’s nice to know that if the fancy took us, we could. Well, no… we couldn’t… because the thing costs an astronomical $1,720 and is currently out of stock.

Chameleon Pen Blends Colors On The Fly, Creates Awesome Gradients


Drawing with an actual pen and ink is a thing that people still do, no matter how much digital drawing tablets have evolved. The Chameleon Pen is an interesting new type of drawing tool that allows you to produce multiple color tones, stunning gradations, highlights, shading & seamless blends, all with one pen. It does this by a process they call “fusing”, during which the nib of your pen enters into contact with the mixing nib of another flask containing coloured toning medium; the longer these two stay in contact, the stronger the gradient will be. The toning medium basically flows into your pen when the nibs touch, mixes in the nib, and then flows back out smoothly as you draw. It’s rather complicated to explain properly, but watch the video below and you’ll see the beauty.

Prices start at $5 for one random colored pen, and $25 for 5 skin or gray toned Chameleon Pens.

Draft Top Slices The Top Off Your Beer Can, Exposes Full Bouquet


People can get passionate about beer; we drink it to get drunk and couldn’t care less. But if you’re the discerning type, you might enjoy drinking it off a can a little less, since you don’t get to experience the full bouquet and aroma of a good beer due to it being poured through a small opening. The Draft Top is a special tool designed to slice the top off a can, exposing the precious liquid inside. Once removed, no sharp edges remain so you can drink safely. The tool itself is small and easily carried, measuring 5/8th in. thick x 3.75 in. x 4.75 in. It’ll cost you a $45 pledge to own it.

BullseyeBore Helps You Drill In A Straight Line


You’re a DIY kind of guy, doing stuff around the house with the power tools you had so much fun buying in Home Depot, right? Well, chances are you know just how hard it is to drill a hole that’s perfectly perpendicular to your surface. With the BullseyeBore drill attachment though, your problems might be solved. It uses a laser to project three circles onto your surface. As long as the three circles are perfectly equidistant, you’re drilling straight; deviate from that and you’ll immediately notice.

There are three patterns generated by BullseyeBore: a single dynamic position pattern, and two fixed circular measurement patterns. This is demonstrated in the video (left) and images (below) with the single dynamic position pattern as the outermost pattern, and the fixed circular measurement patterns on the inside.

The single dynamic position pattern changes shape dramatically when the drill is misaligned with the work surface, while the two fixed measurement patterns maintain consistent and evenly spaced concentric circles regardless of alignment.

A drill is properly aligned with the work surface when the single position pattern becomes circular and is concentric with the two fixed measurement patterns.

The BullseyeBore attachment also helps you know exactly how deep you’ve drilled, since the circles will change size as you go deeper, letting you keep track of your progress.

It’s not available for purchase yet, but there are two versions planned: one that attaches to the chuck of any drill and accepts bits on the other end, and one that’s actually integrated into a chuck directly. The company is looking for partners to bring it to market.

This Contraption is “The iPhone of Garlic Peelers”?


Yeah… that’s a bold claim, but that’s what was in the email sent to us. Bold enough, in fact, to pique our interest and make us look at the thing. And while it’s a far cry from any Apple-type product, we suppose in the world of garlic peelers, this product does stand out. It’s a hollow tube with special grooves on the inside that peel a whole garlic bulb in 30 seconds. You simply break apart the head of garlic, toss the cloves in, close the lids and shake for 10 to 30 seconds. The grooves will impact the cloves in just the right way, removing the skin in the process. You’re left with a perfectly peeled pack of cloves in less time than it would take you to manually peel just one. The fact that both ends open up makes it easy to wash, and the design doesn’t hurt the eyes. The best part is that a $25 pledge will get you one.

The United M48 Tactical War Hammer with Sheath


Whenever we come across something like the United M48 Tactical War Hammer, we often read about zombies in the description some journalists give it. It’s as if we have to conjure up some reason to own this, and zombies is a safe bet since no one will ever be sad we’re contemplating killing a fictional character. However, we think the United M48 Tactical War Hammer with Sheath is badass all on its own, zombie or not.

The M48 Tactical War Hammer from United Cutlery is the hammer/axe combination! The cast 2Cr13 stainless steel black oxide-coated head can pummel almost anything with ease. The handle features a defensive war hammerhead and a devestating piercing spike, which offers great applications as an effective breaching tool and defensive hammer. The 30% fiberglass handle is nearly indestructible, and the axe head is attached to it with metal bolts. Includes a TPR hammerhead cover and a nylon sheath with Velcro closure.

– 7 3/4″ cast 2Cr13 stainless steel head
– Powerful back spike
– 30% fiberglass & reinforced nylon handle
– Measures 15 1/2″ overall in length
– Includes TPR head cover and a nylon sheath with a Velcro closure

Better yet, it’s not going to break the bank at $50.
