New at CountyComm – Maratac 1/4″ Pen Driver Titanium

If you like titanium, you like CountyComm. They always seem to have some new titanium doodad to drool over, like the new Maratac 1/4″ Pen Driver Titanium.

This lightweight driver accepts standard 1/4″ shank bits. It has a slim design that can be clipped in a pocket thanks to the included titanium pocket clip (the same one used on CountyComm’s Embassy Pens). It features golf ball dimple texturing for some grip without tearing up your pockets.

The 1/4″ Pen Driver Titanium can store 4 bits on board (included). Three of those bits can be stored inside the handle and one of them in the bit holder. It weighs just 2.1 ounces with the 4 included bits!

Sneak Peek: Wingard Wearables Quill

Wingard Wearables is a company that I enjoy watching because everything that comes out of their shop seems to be an interesting and unique melding of old fashioned materials with modern sensibilities of what a concealed edges weapon can be. The upcoming Quill is certainly no exception to this.

Wingard Wearables has been teasing the arrival of the Quill for some time now. It is a deceptively simple, forged steel spike with an elegant, curved shape that allows for a number of grips. It is compact and should be quite easy to carry.

There are currently a number of videos on the Wingard Wearables Instagram page that may be of interest: @Wingard_Wearables

Keep an eye on the Instagram page and website for information on pricing and availability.

PHLSTER Enigma Reveal

PHLSTER has been teasing the Enigma recently and now the cat is out of the bag. Enigma is a “Concealment Chassis” that allows for concealing a handgun completely independent of your clothing choices.

I highly recommend watching the reveal video posted to PHLSTER’s Instagram page as it does an excellent job of showing what Enigma is and what it does. The video also does a good job placing it in a variety of common situations that you might otherwise have a hard time carrying a concealed handgun to give you context for its capabilities.

Enigma is expected to be available to order on Black Friday.

PHLSTER Website Update and a Tease

PHLSTER has given their website a fresh coat of paint. The new site sports a clean new look and updated, easier to use navigation… and you may want to keep an eye on the new site because PHLSTER has been teasing a new product release.

The new product, called ENIGMA, looks to be some kind of deep concealment product that promises to allow the user to “Dress Around Your Life”. PHLSTER’s teases always live up to the hype so this one will be worth watching.

Introducing the WNDSN Telemeter Dog Tag in Brass

BERLIN, 2020-11-12 – Your tools should last longer than you do.

Brass, used since prehistory, is the ever-classic. Its malleability, durability, antimicrobial properties, and sheer cosmetic appeal makes Brass stand out among flashier, more modern materials and WNDSN reaches for it again and again when creating new products, this time bringing it to their signature Dog Tag Telemeter Pendant.

The core tenant at WNDSN is “The best tool is the one you have with you, on you.” and they mean it literally when it comes to the dog tag. The Brass Dog Tag Telemeter Pendant is the newest product in their line of distance measuring and range finding instruments. The Brass Dog Tag retains the classic military format, sized according to specifications and matching current U.S. Dog Tags. A heavier material, the Brass Dog Tag weighs in at 1oz (33 g). Now available in Brass, this Telemeter will become an heirloom item for the next generations of explorers.

The WNDSN Brass Dog Tag Telemeter pendant fixates the distance to the measuring scale by way of creating a necklace that is holding the scales at a set distance from the eye, thus enabling accurate measurements. The simple instructions are, as always:

Find an object of known size at the distance you need to measure and determine the angular size which you can subsequently convert to distance.

The new WNDSN Brass Dog Tag Telemeter pendant features two sets of scales; on the left-hand side, a standard angular size scale with a maximum of 10° graded in 0.2° increments, and on the right-hand side, a special multiplication scale that allows the user — knowing the dimension of the object to be measured — to directly multiply the value for the distance.

Further design elements and features are:

  1. Both sets of scales have extra-long marks, extended from the edges to be visible with dog tag silencers installed.
  2. The dog tag itself features instructional icons to create a self-contained tool.
  3. The backside is intentionally left blank to either sandwich the Telemeter dog tag to the back of regular dog tags, or alternatively for the end user to add additional information, velcro, or marker tabs.

The WNDSN family of Telemeters are wallet-size distance and altitude nomographs developed in the WNDSN applied science lab. They combine a thousand years of civil engineering, surveying, navigation, and astronomy in durable, low-tech, high utility instruments that can be brought anywhere, are self-containing, and independent of external, modern technologies.

Under certain conditions or in cases where laser rangefinders tend to fail or result in errors, WNDSN Telemeters prevail and can be used as primary or “second opinion” tools, to cross-check values obtained with different means, or in austere situations when other methods fail or are unavailable.

The WNDSN Brass Dog Tag Telemeter is made in Germany, its scales are laser-engraved and precision-cut into 3 mm raw, unpolished brass. The device carries the WNDSN maker’s marks; scientific instructions are engraved and supplemented by a printed how-to in both English and German. An abridged manual is included as a PDF and a 400-page printed comprehensive manual is available separately at WNDSN or via bookstores.
