Southern Grind Spider Monkey

Southern Grind’s Bad Monkey folder is one of my all time favorite knives. It combines great ergonomics with great quality, a licensed Emerson Wave Opening feature, and a heaping helping of titanium and carbon fiber which never hurts. Now we have a more compact Bad Monkey spin off to look forward to called the Spider Monkey.

This teaser image from Southern Grind shows the Spider Monkey’s more compact blade compared to the larger Bad Monkey.

The Spider Monkey and it’s 3.25″ blade is more compact than its older brother, the Bad Monkey. The new blade also happens to be ground from S35VN steel. Hopefully, there will be more details on the Spider Monkey at Blade Show. In the mean time, check out Southern Grind and all the good things they are doing to put Americans to work and help kids.

These holsters are molded to CNC machined molds that are made in house. They are molded from Boltaron 4332 plastic and have a wedge molded into the back that help keep the butt end of the gun tucked in toward the wearer’s body. They also have user adjustable ride height via a strut and all stainless steel hardware.

The Beacon Outdoor Survival Box

You know Smith & Bradley for their watches but soon you may know them for interesting outdoor/survival related gear. The veterans of Kickstarter have launched a campaign to fund their latest project, The Beacon Outdoor Survival Box.

The Beacon is a floating, water-tight storage box with an integrated solar charger (with battery) and flashlight functionality built in. The interesting thing is that in spite of the fact that it combines 3 useful outdoor tools, it isn’t really any larger than a typical solar charger or water-tight storage box is on its own.

The USB charging receptacles (3) are located inside the storage compartment so you can actually store a mobile device inside The Beacon to protect it from the elements and charge it at the same time. If you have to charge multiple devices, you can open The Beacon and use all 3 ports simultaneously. The Beacon’s 10,000 mAh lithium ion battery can also be wall charged and the entire “power puck” portion can be removed from the box for separate use or cleaning.

The integrated LEDs gives you the choice of white flood light or SOS flashing modes. There is also an amber colored LED flood light option for situations where you may not want to overload your dark adjusted eyes.

Often, these widgets that try to combine a ton of features end up being monstrosities that are larger and heavier than just carry the items separately. The Beacon actually appears to combine the functionality of several items into a package that actually makes it an attractive alternative to the items it replaces.
