Heirloom Dual Sapphire Titanium Compass from County Comm

Sunday, April 24th, 2022

Hi, I’m Eric and I’ve got a compass problem. I own way more compasses than the average person and I can’t help myself when I see a cool one for sale. The Heirloom Dual Sapphire Titanium Compass just caught my eye.

Bearing the Maratac roll mark, this compass features a north arrow coated in Swiss Super-LumiNova Grade X1, which County Comm claims is the brightest possible none radioactive phosphorous to date. Plus, the design is classic, like a pocket watch, boasting a titanium frame.

Currently, out of stock, I’m hoping they come in soon.

Gerber – Devour Titanium

Monday, March 14th, 2022

Now available in TA4 Titanium the Gerber Devour weighs just 1 ounce but boasts nine functions.

One of the biggest issues with sporks is that the handles are too short for eating out of MRE retort pouches and freeze dried meal bags. The Devour’s extended handle is also textured.

Six of the functions come from the can-opener-style accessory which snaps into place on the Spork component.

? Package opener

? Can opener

? Bottle opener

? Pry bar

? Flathead driver (small)

? Flathead driver (large)

? Deep basin spoon
