Sneak Peek: ADAPTIV-X Reduced Signature Trauma Kit

ADAPTIV-X released some teaser images of an upcoming trauma kit designed in conjunction with Phokus Research that looks to be extremely concealable. The Reduced Signature Trauma Kit is designed to be carried inside the waistband on the back of the wearer. It is accessible with either hand in this position via a pull handle. It is compatible with ADAPTIV-X’s IWS Tabs or their zero clips that have no visual signature outside the waistband.

SEREPICK OSS Lapel Dagger – Zirconia Ceramic

Fact: OSS Lapel Daggers are cool.

Fact: Zirconia Ceramic is a cool material.

Fact: OSS Lapel Daggers made from Zirconia Ceramic are extra cool.

SEREPICK’s OSS Lapel Dagger stays true to the original OSS daggers in a lot of ways. The overall shape and size are similar. The sheath can be stitched into a garment like some of the originals. It also has texture applied to the grip for the thumb. However this version has one trick that the originals didn’t. It’s non-ferrous due to its Zirconia Ceramic construction.

These are fairly limited in terms of production and limited production items like this tend to sell out quickly at SEREPICK. Act fast if you want one.

KAB Defense – A New Name in Glock Accessories

KAB Defense is a new name in the Glock accessory game. They already offer a number of slides, barrels, and triggers with a dizzying array of options along with custom work like stippling and slide machining on customer provided Glocks. Everything they offer is made in the USA and most of their line is made in house.

We are a veteran partnered company who not only makes Glock slides but also offers a wide array of customization for the consumer at a modest price point with consumer satisfaction as the highest priority.

That “wide array” of customization options is very impressive especially when it comes to their aftermarket slides. They currently offer 3 different machining patterns on their slides which are offered for the G19 and G17 (Gen 4 only at the moment but others are already in the works and they can custom machine any generation customer provided slide). Once the customer chooses a machining pattern, they can really start riffing on the design. They can choose between several finish options, lightening cuts/windows, and whether or not they would like the KAB Defense branding displayed.

To give you an idea of how deep you can go with options, KAB Defense doesn’t just give you a single option for an RMR cut… they let you choose between sights in front of RMR, sights behind RMR, or no sights with RMR. The same is true of their barrels, triggers, and custom work. The options just keep coming.

KAB Defense intends to keep their wait times to a minimum by doing most of the work on their products in house where they have significant manufacturing capability including multiple CNC 4 & 5 axis machining centers, multiple CNC lathes, 6 axis wire EDM, laser engraving/cutting/marking machine, multiple manual machines, a CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine with probe tree, and a spray booth for applying finishes.

Our motto is “Build Your Legacy” and we like to provide the best customer service we possibly can along with quick turnaround.

Keep an eye on KAB Defense.

The EDC Tool Roll: Wiha PokitPak Bit Case

The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.

Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.


A friend of mine first showed me the Wiha PokitPak tools years ago but I only got around to trying one a few months ago. The idea behind these is simple and clever. Normally, you would need to carry both a driver and a selection of bits in some kind of a carrier. The PokitPak serves as both the driver and bit carrier.

The PokitPak is a plastic case with a hinged opening. Inside, it contains 6 standard 1/4″ shank bits and a basic magnetic bit holder. The bits and bit holder are of very high quality as is typical for Wiha. The bottom of the case has a hexagonal hole that can accept the bit holder to turn the entire case into a sort of “T” handle driver.

The bits found in these kits vary based on the kit that you select but the most basic and generally useful is the subject of this review, the 71198 PokitPak. It contains 4.5 and 6 mm flat bits and sizes 0, 1, 2, and 3 Phillips bits. Of course, you can also customize the kit by replacing the bits based on whatever you intend to work on.

Overall, I have found the PokitPak to work well in anything short of high torque applications. The interface between the bit holder and case has surprised me with how strong it is but I can start to make it deform a bit if I start to lean into it. I suppose it would be nice if there was some kind of metal reinforcement in this area. I also tried this in my range bag for a while and found that it was too short for tasks like tightening an AR-15 grip screw.

I think PokitPak is best used as a companion to another tool. I like to use it with some other kind of driver like some of the ratcheting drivers we have discussed in previous editions of The EDC Tool Roll. In this role, it can serve as both your bit carrier and an extension. This way you don’t have loose bits knocking around in your kit and you have the bonus of the “T” handle driver functionality.

Where to Buy:

Some of you might have access to hardware or electronics stores that carry Wiha tools. I don’t have a brick and mortar store near me that carries them so I purchased this online at Amazon: Wiha PokitPak at Amazon

Alternatives:

The PokitPak is pretty unique compared to other tools we have already review but you can use it as a driver or a companion to a dedicated driver or ratchet.

Drivers:

Victorinox Swisstool Plus Replacement Wrench

Wera Kraftform Kompakt 10

Engineer DR-07 Twin Wrench Driver

Tekton 14-in-1 Offset Screwdriver (2945)

Replaceable Edition Fix It Sticks

Doc Allen’s VersaTool

Wera Kraftform Kompact 25

Ratchets:

VIM Tools HBR5

GearWrench MicroDrive Set

Chapman MFG 1316

Henry Holsters TurboDrop and TurboProp Competition Holster Accessories

Henry Holsters has created a line of competition accessories for kydex holsters.

The TurboDrop is an adjustable drop hanger that is machined from 6061 aluminum and set up with the common Bladetech/Comp-tac hole pattern (which allows it to be used with many G-Code and Safariland holsters as well). The TurboDrop serves to both drop and offset your holster with adjustments for both drop and cant. The adapter is extremely rigid being machined from aluminum but also comfortable with a curved 1.5″ belt loop and dehorned corners all around.

The TurboProp is a thumb wheel that works with an adjustable tension holster to allow the user to quickly dial their desired level of retention. It is also machined from 6061 aluminum and it’s easy to grasp “propeller” shape gives better purchase and leverage than smaller thumb disks. The TurboProp is sold in packs of 5.

Bastion Battle Axe

Bastion’s new Battle Axe has the kind of features-to-value ratio that we have come to expect from them. It features full-tang, D2 steel construction with G-10 handle slabs. The slabs are black and the steel is given a durable black PVD finish to match.

The cutting bit has a generous relief cut behind it for choking up on the handle for fine work. The spike on the back of the poll can be used for puncturing or drilling.

  • Blade Head Top to Handle: 3.25″
  • Blade Width Blade to Point: 5.88″
