Even though Fall has just begun, the holiday shopping season is almost upon us. We’ve already seen Christmas items popping up at some stores and even a few building decorations as well. In just a few short weeks, many major retailers will start rolling out their holiday gift displays, choc-full of new products and innovations. […]
Leatherman’s Juice series of multi-tools are smaller and more casual in appearance than the models most people think of when you mention the brand. Despite their smaller and more pocketable size, Juice multi-tools pack plenty of tools and functions between their handles. Every Juice model features combination pliers, a stainless steel body, anodized aluminum handle […]
I have always been a fan of Pilot’s G2 gel pens, especially the fine 0.5mm version. A “limited edition” metallic-barrel design has been available for some time now, but I’ve never had the urge to give those a try.
Because of how most mechanical pencils are designed, they’re never really comfortable to pocket and walk around with. Even pencils with retractable tips, such as the Pentel GraphGear 1000, are relatively pointy and intrusive. Pentel’s Kerry Sharp is different and is the only mechanical pencil I know of with a cap. When capped, the Kerry […]
Lamy’s Safari fountain pen is an inexpensive way to break out of the monotony of ordinary ball point and gel pens. The Safari is priced at about $25, and include a single ink cartridge to start you off with. For a few dollars extra (~$4-5), a Lamy Z 24 converter enables you to load the Safari with your choice […]
County Comm just came out with their new Embassy pen, which features an upgraded design. The new edition does away with o-ring seals and is instead built with an internal threaded housing for greater durability.

Giha Woo’s Constrained Ball device is a simple pen and pencil attachment that constrains the writing instruments to move in only one direction. This allows for quick, easy and accurate freehand (well, near freehand) straight lines. To sweeten the deal, the attachment has sensors that measure the length of the drawn line in real-time. Right now it looks […]
Earlier this month, we talked a little about Sharpie’s new liquid pencils that they claim writes as smooth as a pen. The first reviews for these new pencils have hit the net, and they’re less than flattering. Looking at the customer reviews over at Amazon, many people are unhappy with the pencils’ performance, calling it “splotchy” […]
Timbuk2’s Tool Shed Bag is a great on-the-go tool roll for mountain biking and other hobbies and activities that call for a portable tool kit. The Tool Shed is made from a durable waterproof and grease-resistant fabric that folds easily. When unfolded, the tool shed lays flat for each access to tools. A strong strap […]
Striker’s magnetic LED light mine may not look like much, but it’s a decent little LED light. Once its novelty wears off (and it will), the Striker mine is still a rather innovative aimable LED accent light. While not really bright enough to be considered a worklight, it’s suitable for light duty lighting tasks. You can finder the […]
Sharpie just announced that they’re coming out with a liquid pencil which writes as smooth as a pen while still being erasable. After three days, the writing becomes permanent as if written with a Sharpie marker. Sounds pretty handy! Sharpie Liquid Pencil via Amazon Product Announcement via Sharpie
Intended for military use, ITW’s Tac Link is an accessory “attachment device” that provides many tactical advantages over common aluminum non-load-bearing carabiners. Luckily, you don’t have to be a soldier to buy or use Tac Links.
