The B&T BWC9 is a transformer, changing from a mild mannered lunch box into a 9mm firearm.

Well, that’s what it looks like anyway. See for yourself.

Yes, I’ll acknowledge the elephant in the room. It is quite similar in purpose to the upcoming Magpul x ZEV FDP-9 which is still in development.

It uses a SIG320 trigger group and carry slide with a limited run coming later this year from

Grayman and Company Introduce Sunglasses

Thursday, June 23rd, 2022

Grayman and Company has been talking to me quietly about their plans for a pair of sunglasses for a while. These were born from the need for executive protection and plainclothes guys who want sophisticated looking sunglasses that you can wear with a suit, but with the protection of polycarbonate sport sunglasses or eyepro.

The Grayman and Company sunglasses come in two Wayfarer-inspired styles and an aviator style. They feature a groundbreaking Japanese Urethane-based lens that has far superior polarization, optical clarity and scratch resistance to the polycarbonate lenses we’re used to, but maintains high-velocity impact resistance in-line with ANSI Z87.1+ testing methodology. They are currently not rated for Z87.1+, as the lack of side-shot protection would instantly disqualify them. I’m told they’re working on some solutions to this. The Urethane lens holds a lot of promise and there don’t appear to be any major peers or competitors who use this lens technology, yet.

Draper Inventors Honored for Antenna Designed to Evade Detection

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021

CAMBRIDGE, MA—December 20, 2021—Draper has earned an award for its patent of an antenna technology that shows promise for improving reception and evading detection in locations where signal complexity might be a problem. Military units may benefit when the antenna is installed in their communication devices.

The achievement was recognized by the Boston Patent Law Association at its 11th Annual Invented Here! event Nov. 12, 2021.

Antennas can, of course, be designed to receive and transmit a range of signals, including GPS, cellphone and Wi-Fi. Making signals difficult to detect is desirable in many military contexts, such as stealth aircraft. But devising an invisibility cloak isn’t easy for antennas used for typical military uses, such as beacons and radar systems.

A major challenge for designing any antenna is the noisy and complex environments it might encounter. Military antennas, for instance, interact with multiple frequencies, which requires multiple layers of protection for the antennas and their signals to remain undetected. The result can be an antenna wrapped in a protective layer, called a radome, which can be “expensive, complex and time-consuming” to design, build and maintain, according to the patent.

Draper addressed the challenge of unwanted signal detection by devising a scheme for antennas of various types that can be tuned by adjusting the frequency selective surfaces, or FSS. FSS is a thin, repetitive surface designed to reflect, transmit or absorb electromagnetic fields based on the frequency of the field.

Engineers at Draper designed the antenna to dampen or hide its presence without impacting its effectiveness. They did so by developing an FSS that has the ability to automatically change how the FSS resonates to an incoming radar signal without degrading signal reception to the antenna. The result is a lower radar signature of the antenna. If a different radar frequency needs to be mitigated against, then the tunable FSS which is embedded in the antenna element can be tuned to the new radar frequency without degrading the performance of the desired communications frequency.

The inventors responsible for the patent “Frequency Selective Surface Antenna Element” are Amy Duwel, John Grandfield and Jacob Treadway. The patent application was prepared and submitted by Sunstein LLP.

The Boston Patent Law Association, established in 1924, is one of the oldest associations of intellectual property lawyers and professionals in the U.S. The BPLA’s Invented Here! award highlights inventions made by New England inventors or New England companies.

Grayman & Co Polo Shirt Update

Thursday, November 25th, 2021

I’ve got to tell you, if you’re looking for a very well made, nicely tailored polo shirt, keep reading. I have one of these shirts from the first, limited run and it is amazing. It comes from Grayman and Company, a Canadian company who make bespoke suits with tactical features. A couple weeks ago, they released their new merino polo shirt and it’s even better than mine. In fact, I’m upgrading and one of my sons is going to get the one I currently have. He just doesn’t know it yet.

They added some very discreet loops for comms wire management and a pass-through channel in the collar band if you want to hide a small wired mic under the collar flap.

Besides those features, this is very clearly a polo shirt designed by tailors. Merino fabric is usually in a jersey knit and you can find plenty of merino polo shirts at REI or by your favourite outdoor brands in jersey, but this one is in the more sophisticated ‘pique’ textured knit which is even more breathable and has a more refined look that goes well with suits and blazers. The only other merino pique polo shirt I could find on Google was by Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label and it’s $495. They also opted for a longer/deeper button placket than usual and constructed their shirt collar like a dress shirt collar, so it has structure and slots for collar stays. The collar stays they use are carbon fibre.

The whole package makes for a polo shirt that definitely looks more put together than a normal casual polo shirt and might be a good alternative to a dress shirt for some occasions. And it’s pure merino, so it’s temperature-regulating, breathable, odor-resistant (you can wear this thing for a week or more without washing it) and machine washable. The fabric is Italian, from Reda 1865, and the tailoring/construction was all done in Italy, so they ship it directly from Italy.

You can check it out at They have a pretty useful fitting calculator so you can experiment to find the right fit.
