The Mantis and the Cricket from Jeff Morin, are two versatile  multi-tools designed to make your life easier. The [...]

I'm guessing that a lot of our readers have some sort of EDC (Every Day Carry) setup that they carry about with them for those just in case moments. The folks at Gerber (the knife a survival tool company, not the baby food maker) have embraced the concept of EDC with their own line of [...]

Parachute multi-tool review

I have said it before, and I will probably say it many more times here on The Gadgeteer pages: I am a pocket multi-tool junkie. I love having the ability to carry around small gadgets that can perform several different functions. I especially like items that I can fit on a keyring or into a [...]

If you love split rings as much as I do, and by "love", I mean hate, I may have found a possible solution. It's the Infini-Key Clip from Niteize. It's made of stainless steel and won't cause you to utter curse words like you might when you jam the tip of a split ring under [...]

A few days ago I posted a short news article about an auto safety tool called the ExiTool by CRKT. I thought it looked like a handy tool to own, so I ordered one for myself. It arrived a few days ago and although I haven't had the opportunity to use it to help me escape [...]

I recently came across an interesting take on this dilemma in a current project on Kickstarter. The Knife Fork & Spoon by John-Paul [...]

It's time again for another inventory of our everyday carry items,  or as I loosely refer to them "my survival gear", so I wanted to share them with the outside world. And surprisingly,  I found out that I use each and every item daily in one form or another. And some more than others. I [...]

You've no doubt heard of a spork which looks like a spoon with short fork-like tines on the edge. Campers and EDC fans like them because they combine two tools into one. Enter the Knork which looks like an ordinary stainless steel fork till you take a closer look. The outside tines have been beveled without being [...]

  As you have become aware, Julie challenged us to open our everyday carry bags to share what has become our standard gear. It was an interesting exercise, I used the opportunity to get rid of some gear that has remained in my bag, but when I was done, I still had a lot. You [...]
