Public Service Announcement: Beware Knock-Off/Fake Hemostatic Products

You have likely heard of the knock-off tourniquets that are coming into the country from China. Now there is a new knock-off hitting these shores – hemostatic products. These products are designed to look like established products but have ZERO vetting behind them to prove their function. This makes them extremely dangerous to anyone who adds them to their kit expecting them to be potentially life saving tools.

BFE Labs has done a great job of uncovering this story and finding specific examples of what the fake products look like. You should check out their article for more details: BFE Labs – Fake Hemostatic Products

Remember to source your medical products from reliable, original sources.

Hogue Inc. EX-T01 Tomahawk

Hogue Inc. has been steadily growing their line of cutting tools. The EX-T01 Tomahawk is one of the newest additions to this line.

170691682-800x800

The Allen Elishewitz designed EX-T01 is ground from S-7 tool steel which is extremely impact resistant. The head has been radically skeletonized to reduce the overall weight of the tool and give it a light and fast feel in the hand. The hammer poll can be used as an impact tool or it can accept a variety accessories including spikes and pry tools.

The grip gurus at Hogue Inc. have become wizards with G-10 and it shows in the handle scales of the EX-T01. The shape of the handle encourages the user to grip it in a variety of ways whether gripping high for fine control or moving lower for maximum swinging power. The slabs encompass a full length partial tang and terminate in a well shaped hook to keep the tomahawk from sliding from the user’s hand.

The sheath retains the tomahawk in two ways: magnets and with a latch. The EX-T01 snaps into the sheath readily thanks to strong magnets and then the user can engage a latch that retains the tomahawk via the skeletonization void in the tomahawk’s head.

Ultra Light Micro Ranger Beads

Standard paracord based ranger beads (pace counters) aren’t exactly heavy, but… They are heavier than they need to be. A long time friend of mine and US Army veteran developed the Ultra Light Micro Ranger Beads that weigh in as just 2.27 grams compared to about 5 grams for a regular ranger beads.

s-l500

These ranger beads makes use of smaller beads and lighter cord. They are small enough to make a difference but large enough to still be used with gloves. I have had two sets of these for almost 2 years. There have been zero issues with beads slipping or breaking. In fact, the beads grip this cord better than a lot of the full size ranger beads.

s-l500-2

These are small and light but easy to use and durable. They are also made by a veteran right here in the USA and affordable at $5.35 shipped each. There are several bead and cordage options and there may be discounts for bulk orders. These are only sold on Ebay at the moment.
