UST – ParaShovel Pro

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

The ParaShovel from Ultimate Survival Technologies is an inexpensive, multifunction item, suited for keeping in the trunk.

Think of it as more of a trowel than shovel, but the handle is wrapped in 2.5m of ParaTinder, essentially paracord with an added internal strand of tinder which is distinguished by its red color. The rest of the stands have the same common use as other paracord.

Features:

• 4” trowel blade for burying waste and maintaining fire safety

• Line cutter cuts paracord and other cord

• Cutting blade

• Tent peg pry-tool

• Black-oxide finish reduces rust and protects the shovel.

• Protective sheath for safe storage included

Leatherman Celebrates 35th Anniversary with Revival of Original Pocket Survival Tool

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

The first-of-its-kind multi-tool returns: The Limited Edition PST and Collector’s Edition PST

3E806597-E4B4-4F0A-B88D-A6817078BA8A

Portland, OR — January 23, 2018 — This is the first Tool Tale: In 1975, recent college graduate Tim Leatherman and his wife Chau set off on a roadtrip throughout Europe. Along the way, the unreliable Fiat the newlyweds had purchased for $300 required multiple roadside fixes. Tim had the right know-how, but not the right tools to fix it. Tim returned home with an idea for a multi-tool to tackle life’s unexpected challenges. He asked his wife if she could support the family while he pursued his idea. He thought it would take him a month to develop a prototype. After eight years of toiling in his garage and multiple rejections, the Pocket Survival Tool (PST) was born. In their first year of business, Tim and his co-founder hoped to sell 4,000 tools; instead, they sold 30,000. And over the next decade, they would sell over one million PST multi-tools.

Today, on the brand’s 35th Anniversary, Leatherman is continuing Tim’s legacy of unwavering perseverance, ingenious design, and commitment to quality with the revival of the Limited Edition PST.

“I’m incredibly proud to introduce a Limited Edition Pocket Survival Tool nearly identical to my original design. Every tool is crafted just like the original, but not in my garage!” said Leatherman, who serves as chairman of Leatherman Tool Group. “Seeing it brings back memories of what it took to launch this company. I’m in awe of how it has grown over the years and thankful for our dedicated employees and faithful fans who helped us reach this milestone.”

The PST comes in two styles: Limited Edition PST for $200 and the serialized Collector’s Edition PST for $275. Made of 100% stainless steel, the Limited Edition PST has 14 tools in one including: Needlenose Pliers, Regular Pliers, Wire Cutters, Hard-wire Cutters, 420HC Knife, Wood/Metal File, Phillips Screwdriver, Large Screwdriver, Medium Screwdriver, Small Screwdriver, Awl, Ruler (8 in/20 cm), Can Opener and Bottle Opener. Each PST is stamped with Tim Leatherman’s signature and comes with an American-made leather sheath, emblazoned with a diagonal wordmark in gold foil, a throwback to the original. The Limited Edition PST will be available January 23rd at select Leatherman retailers.

The Collector’s Edition comes with a serial number in a beautiful wooden box with a collector’s commemortive coin and a certificate of authenticity. Only 500 Collector’s Edition PST are being produced and will be available at leatherman.com on February 1, 2018.

“The Empower series navigates the user divide between EDC users and tactical operators with 4 colorways and a unique new blade shape,” says Karrson Koivisto, Product Manager for Gerber. “This American-made automatic knife is another distinct step in Gerber’s pursuit of delivering choice materials and world-class craftsmanship at an accessible price point. The Empower balances the innovation of Armored Grip™ Tech and a snappy opening mechanism with the time-tested durability of S30V steel and the battle-ready chassis of the Propel. It has the spirit of a warrior, evolved for the everyday carry user.”

Based on the chassis of the field-proven Propel, the Empower is Gerber’s newest American-made automatic knife. Specifically designed with a focus on everyday carry, this daily workhorse wields lightning-quick deployment and safety-focused locking mechanisms. A false edge spear point blade (available in a stonewash or black oxide finish) delivers utility and piercing capability, ideal for survival situations and daily chores alike. The oversized plunge lock and safety slide partner together to provide unrivaled control when deployed, as well as keep it safely stowed when in pocket. The Armored Grip™ handle scales offer reliable control and a tactile hand feel; photo-chemical etching provides a quick, confident grip as well as different design options to choose from.

The Empower joins an honored lineage of iconic products that are manufactured in the Portland, Oregon facility – learn more about Gerber’s commitment to American manufacturing here. As always, Gerber remains dedicated to crafting tools that stand the test of time, and each product is backed by Gerber’s limited lifetime warranty.
