Here is a picture of the different types of Fisher Space Pens I currently own. I have additional copies but these represent the different models I have in my inventory. There is a reason why I own several of these remarkable pens.
A while ago, I discussed my every day carry (EDC) items and some of the guiding principles behind my choices. Having helpful items on your person is a great way to become better equipped to handle daily life as well as the unexpected. Since it has been over two years, let’s revisit this subject and see what has happened.
About a year ago, I was having problems with the batteries in one of my vehicles. But before I took the battery into my local auto parts store, I decided to purchase a Save A Battery device to see if I could bring my battery back to life. Since I was already thinking about purchasing a battery charger of some sort, necessity was the mother of invention and I got one. So I finally got around to writing a review on it, so keep on reading and learn about this useful tool.
I admit, I have always had a thing for Leatherman multi-tools. So you can imagine how happy I was to receive a Leatherman Rebar for Christmas. This is one of the tools I have had my eye on for a while since I wanted to add one to my inventory. Now that I’ve had it for a while and used it a few times, let me share my thoughts on it.
Remember the post I wrote a while back about the entrenching tool? You can read that article again for a description of what an e-tool is, what I’d like to do in this post is describe what it can do for you. There are many uses for this trifold tool, some of which you might not expect.
Over the last few years, the tactical tomahawk has become more visible both in stores and within the prepper community. Part of the reason for this is it can perform several functions yet not take up a lot of space. Think of it as a axe version of a multi-tool, akin to what the e-tool is to shovels. Anyway, there was a good article on tomahawks over at Gizmodo that is worth a read. It gives a good overview of why they are so useful and what features to look for before purchasing one. I am in the market for one myself so I am going to heed my own advice and keep this information in mind before purchasing my tomahawk.
