Now there’s an updated version of the Switch that seems to haveRead More…

I will admit it, I am not the knife aficionado I was once. I used to love knives, all sort of knives and while I still do have the odd or unusual knife around, I have mainly limited myself to the utilitarian variety of knife (Swiss Army type, Leatherman) but I do own a CardsharpRead More…

A while back, Julie posted a news item about a ‘wooden pocket knife.’  I was intrigued: normally, one cuts wood with a knife, right?  So when the opportunity to review Nathan’s Knife Kit from Klecker Knives came up, I had to check it out.  My 8-year-old son had been asking me when he could getRead More…

In my article Are Gadgets Just for Guys?, I was complaining that perfume was listed as a “gadget” gift for women.  I said that unless it came in an air compressor, perfume couldn’t be a gadget.  Swiss Army cologne doesn’t come in an air compressor, but it probably is as close to a gadget as perfumeRead More…
