Bellingham, WA (June 15, 2017) — Trayvax®, a US-based manufacturer of slim metal wallets and outdoor gear, is pleased to announce the limited release of the Axis bi-fold wallet in a Flat Dark Earth color pattern.

“Our customers are constantly asking for specific color patterns,” said Gerald Craft, marketing and communications manager. “We’ve been tallying the votes and FDE came in with the most requests. We only made 100, and when they’re out, they’re out, so get ‘em while they’re hot.”

Trayvax will introduce special-edition, limited-production runs every three months based on customer feedback. The company will only produce 100 units of these specialized colors and there’s no guarantee they will be offered again. The Axis in FDE is now available while supplies last: www.trayvax.com/collections/axis/products/trayvax-axis-fdc-cerakote-limited-release. Stay tuned for a new offering in October.

The sling can be worn slung over either shoulder. Bartacked color-matching PALS webbing runs the length of the sling’s shoulder, allowing users to weave in comms wires, battery pack cables, etc. The sling also includes a double-flap pocket made from stitch-weave twill fabric that will accommodate most smart phones and tourniquets.

    The bag’s main body has a flap with a hidden exterior zippered compartment. One cool feature of the the Low-Profile EDC bag are the two magnetic Fidlock buckles on the main body’s flap which snap together as soon as the two halves are in close proximity.

    • The EDC Pocket Platform has several open-top compartments in various widths to accommodate small items such as pens, knives, flashlights, notepads, multi-tools, and medical/IFAK items.

    Gerber Center Drive

    Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

    img_4074_copy

    This is the Gerber Center Drive, a brand-new made-in-the-USA multitool that’s launching today, and Gerber sent us a pre-production model a few days ahead of the launch to check it out.

    img_4078_copy

    The Center Drive is manufactured from stainless steel, and features 14 individual tools within its frame.

    img_4076_copy

    The pliers are spring loaded, and are released upward via a side-mounted sliding button, purposely designed for one-thumb activation, rather than the swing open design on traditional multitools.

    img_4086_copy

    The pliers consist of a needle nose point with a standard center, as well as rotatable carbide wire cutters and a wire stripper.

    img_4082_copy

    The main blade on the Center Drive is a 3.25″ fine edge blade. According to Gerber, this blade is “30% larger than the competition”; press materials use the main blade on the Leatherman OHT for the size comparison. The blade also locks into place when fully extended via a tension lockbar.

    img_4092_copy

    The opposite arm of the Center Drive features the following tools:

  • Pry bar
  • Nail puller
  • Bottle opener
  • Serrated Blade
  • Awl
  • Fine & course sided file
  • img_4081_copy

    These tools lock into place when fully extended and can be retracted by using a thumb-break slide release on the opposite side of the arm, which also incorporates a lanyard hole. The arm opposite this one features both a 3″ ruler as well as an 8cm ruler.

    img_4091_copy

    Easily the most impressive feature of the Center Drive is the tool of its namesake, the full-size center axis driver. Unlike traditional multitools, which typically feature a lower profile driver, the Center Drive’s driver juts out of the tool’s frame 3.25″ and curves inward towards the center axis, allowing for improved torque and rotation. The center axis driver features a magnetic attachment head, which supports any number of standard bits. Like the blade, the center axis driver locks into place via a tension lockbar.

    img_4085_copy

    The Center Drive also features this bit storage slot which snaps into place within the frame and rotates outward, allowing quick access to a second bit. By default, it comes with a flat head bit already inserted.

    img_4089_copy

    The Center Drive comes with a 12-bit kit, in addition to the Phillip’s head and flat head bits that are already included with the tool. It also comes complete with a nylon and elastic sheath which accommodates both the Center Drive and the bit set. The sheath can be mounted by the rear to a belt either vertically or horizontally via its rear straps.

    img_4090_copy

    By Gerber’s own admission, unlike the Center Drive itself, both the bit set and pouch are made in China. Regardless, the tool itself is USA-made, and it has a host of great features that should make for an excellent option for EDC or just a functional backup tool.

    GRIPsher – The Formidable Compact Multi-Tool On Kickstarter

    Thursday, October 13th, 2016

    gripsher

    The GRIPsher is a compact multitool “dreamt up by an Army Veteran, refined by an MIT engineer, and brought to life with common sense”. The creators of GRIPsher have designed the tool with a variety of functions, including, but not limited to:

  • Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • Phillips head and flat head drivers
  • Material thickness gauge
  • Adjustable hex bolt wrench
  • Heavy duty knife
  • Perhaps the most interesting feature of the GRIPsher is the glow-in-the-dark jaws on the bottom of the tool. Dubbed the HEXGRIP system, the jaws serve as a fully adjustable way to secure hex nuts, bolts, and bits.

    black

    Additionally, the GRIPsher team is hosting a special program called Tools For Troops. For every GRIPsher black model supported, a version of the GRIPsher with black HEXGRIP jaws will be donated to a military service member; this is the only way to get a GRIPsher with black jaws.
