Introducing the WNDSN Explorer’s Notebook

BERLIN, 2021-09-15 – WNDSN Applied Sciences Lab is excited to announce their first adventures into stationery, with the WNDSN Explorer’s Notebook.

“Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up into your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter. And lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.” –Jack London

Calculations only become real when written down, and for years Telemeter and Quadrant users have had to go without a dedicated WNDSN notebook to capture their most necessary computations.

The WNDSN Explorer’s Notebook is a one-of-a-kind addition to the stationery marketspace. This pocket notebook is designed for easy portability, durability, and pleasure of writing, and comes with several unique features.

The user will first appreciate the 40 pages of dot grid paper, designed for ease of writing, drawing, and calculation notation. However, it comes with a twist. The right page maintains a conventional square grid, while the left page is an isometric grid. Held right side up, the grid lines flow from one page to another; the user’s writing will be seamless. By turning the notebook 90 degrees the isometric grid is ready for 3D drawings.

The team at WNDSN are fountain pen aficionados, and the sensual experience of writing was first and foremost on their mind. The Explorer’s notebook is made with Swedish Munken Pure 120g/m² (32 lb) paper. Munken Pure is cradle-to-cradle certified, from sustainably managed forests and will take even the inkiest fountain pen without bleed through.

The spirit of experimental exploration is always at the heart of WNDSN products and no product would be complete without aids to ensure that the explorer has accurate mathematical results. In the back of the notebook the user will find a compendium of useful scientific guides and 18 conversion nomograms for all of their exploratory needs.

The advantage of using nomograms, a WNDSN specialty, is that unlike tables they work both ways, back and forth and in a graphical, at-a-glance, intuitive fashion.

The guides include:

  • Trigonometry: Definition of SOHCAHTOA and an explanation of the Law of Sines.
  • A Sine Quadrant with short instructions for graphical sine, cosine, and tangent computation.
  • 18 unit conversion nomograms for angle, speed, temperature, mass, volume, and length.
  • The WNDSN moon clock, a visual aid in determining time from moon phase and observed lunar shape and altitude.

No detail is left to chance, and as a finale, the cover is as useful as it is beautiful. Featuring Fedrigoni Sirio Black 290g/m² (107 lb) stock, the front cover is embossed with the WNDSN Polaris logo, a favorite amongst patch aficionados. The back cover features a 10-degree Telemeter, realized in white screen-printing complete with instructions to attach a paperclip with some string to the back of the notebook, for a fully working Telemeter.

WNDSN is excited with this first foray into stationery and note taking products, with more to come. With the WNDSN Explorer’s Notebook, WNDSN delivers an exclusive notebook with a unique and exemplary paper experience. And as added value, the scientific compendium, Sine Quadrant, and Telemeter will be useful to all explorers who value or rely on analog tools and precision when out in the field.

Sneak Peek: Bobro Engineering QD Front Grip

Bobro Engineering will launch a new QD Front Grip with a new QD mechanism that they state is “incredibly solid while having the ability to be attached or removed from the weapon in a matter of seconds.”

We also designed this with a skeletonized grip to aid the shooter with weapon stabilization in unconventional positions. You can run your hand through it and grab onto things, loop a sling through it and wrap the loop around a multitude of objects to gain a completely stable shooting position that is fast to enter and exit. The possibilities are endless!

Empire Outfitter Launches Naga V2 Knife

The original Naga, from Empire Outfitters, was a compact self-defense knife with a distinctive Persian blade shape. It brought together a variety of purpose-driven features usually reserved for custom knives into a knife that was available immediately when in stock. The new Naga V2 carries on that legacy of a custom defensive knife with no wait and adds significantly more options.

The basic Naga V2 has some thoughtful changes over the original. The original Naga was available with an epoxy soaked nylon paracord wrap. This option remains for the V2 but you can also choose an epoxy soaked hemp or cord wrap. The new deep-carry sheath is produced by Offensive Industries and features a Discreet Carry Concepts clip.

In addition to the standard models, Empire Outfitters is offering a number of one-off models that include different grinds included swedge grinds, reverse edge grinds, and more.
