You’re usually in the middle of a task when you need a knife, right? For daily use, I demand a model with easy one-handed opening features.
Gunnysack: Fisher Space Pens
The perfect EDC pen. A Fisher Space Pen has been on every space flight since Apollo 7 — for good reason. These innovative tools write in almost any conditions, like underwater or on greasy surfaces.
Woox Thunderbird Throwing Axe
While you can use the Woox Thunderbird Throwing Axe for general “axe activity” like chopping and carving, as the name implies, it’s optimized for flight. The handle is smooth to allow a predictable and hang-up-free release. There’s no discernible palm knob at the base of the handle. On a utility axe, you’ll almost always have some handle mass (palm, swell or end knob) designed to prevent your hand from sliding off the end of the handle. For throwing, you want the Thunderbird to slide right through your fingers as you release each toss — hence no palm knob.

A few years ago, the engineers at Mantis launched a training tech revolution with their MantisX sensor. When paired with a companion smartphone application, the rail-mount device could show you exactly what’s happening when you break a shot. Motion sensors track the most minute movements of the gun, allowing you to see muzzle movement before, during and after the shot break. That’s impressive stuff, and it’s a great way to improve hold and trigger technique, especially since the system works with dry, live and airgun firing modes.
