Specifically made to service AR platform firearms, this new toolkit has an amazing assortment of the most important specialized and general use tools, bits, and a torque driver to properly set up, maintain and accessorize any AR rifle or pistol. The kit is capable enough to use on the bench, but portable enough to easily take to the range, out in the field, keep in a vehicle or ATV, etc. Like all Fix It Sticks products, the AR Field Armorer’s Toolkit was developed with input from gunsmiths, competitive shooters, law enforcement and military, and optics and accessory manufacturers.

TIHK – New Escape Stick 3.0

Thursday, March 7th, 2024

This update to one of our staple product enables this super innovative tool to assist escape in the hairiest of situations. It includes a diamond rod saw (can cut metal, plastic, wood, and fibrous materials) – upgraded from thin metal saw and carbide coated steel road! As well as an integrated handcuff key at the end of the rod saw, utilizing the saw as the handle.

Both tools are hidden inside a rubber sleeve instead of the hard plastic handle of the V2.0 — for those that recall this was how the V1.0 was secured (but no diamond saw!).

Escape from double lock cuffs, zip-ties, duct tape, rope, packing tape and pretty much anything else!

Check out the Escape Stick 3.0 with its limited time pricing of $29 each.

Black Hills Designs SHOVE-R Shove Knife

Sunday, September 10th, 2023

I don’t normally post stuff from the same company back-to-back like this, but Black Hills Designs seems to be on a roll, providing low-cost, mission enhancing solutions.

Their lastest is the SHOVE-R shove knife which they describe as a hyper minimalist entry tool designed to be with you when you need it. With a thickness of 1.4mm and a width of 8mm the SHOVE-R is one of the thinnest entry tools you can carry.

So what exactly is this thing? You remember the old “open the door with a credit card trick?” That’s what this is used for. Just a tool in a box, like you see above.

It’s also XRAY passive and can be woven in between PALS webbing bars or just carried wherever.
