LowPro Augmento Ghillie Snake

What if you could quickly and easily apply a 3D camouflage to almost anything using something that weighs just one ounce and fit easily in a pocket? That sounds like an interesting ability, does it not? Well, I just described the Ghillie Snake from LowPro.

The Ghillie Snake. A multi-use, quick application, seven foot length of camo netting on shock cord that can be wrapped around just about anything. Virtually weightless, this essential piece of kit can be stowed away and forgotten about until that extra element of stealth is required.

Amtac Blades – Upgraded Magnus

The Amtac Blade Magnus has received some updates. All current and future Magnus knives will have a swedge grind that extends back from the tip to about 1.5″ from the handle. This swedge grind reduces the weight by .8 ounces, shifting the balance slightly for a more lively feel in the hand, and produces a tip that is even more efficient in thrusting cuts.

Otherwise, it is the same great Magnus you already know. It features a 5″ blade with an 8 5/8″ overall length. It is ground from 3/16″ thick CPM20CV steel. It also retains the sharp spine of the original Magnus to be used in striking the Belt Firesheath’s integral ferro rod.

InnerBark Outdoors x Work Tuff Gear Klapatche Companion Knife

Andy Tran of InnerBark Outdoors has a new knife design that is being produced by Work Tuff Gear. The Klapatche Companion Knife is designed to be a companion to a larger knife or axe but can also serve the role of an EDC fixed blade thanks to it’s sheath design.

The Klapatche is a companion knife to larger knives or axes for the serious adventurist or as a standalone blade for those wanting a highly capable knife in a compact and lightweight package. The wider blade allows you to dig the blade deep into wood with a baton. The thumb ramp has a hole that is the perfect size to remove bullets from cartridges so the powder can be used for fire-starting. The handle is shaped to allow for multiple grips (forward grip, reverse grip, blade down etc.). The sheath is equipped with an Ulti-Clip, keeping the sheath secured in your pocket as you draw the knife. The design and ergonomics makes the Klapatche a go-to blade for any outdoor enthusiast.

InnerBark Outdoors produced a video of this knife that does an excellent job of conveying it’s purpose and features (as a bonus, it also contains a great look at carving wood wedges which is a very useful skill when paired with a small knife).

The Klapatche Companion Knife is available now in limited numbers and more are being produced as of the time of this writing. You can purchase them directly from Inner-Bark.com.

Procamptek Fire Strip Roll

Procamptek’s Fire Strip Roll is a water-resistant, wax-infused, fibrous paper tinder. You simply tear off a piece, work the paper with your fingers until the wax is breaking up and the fibers are fluffed, and then light the fibers with a spark or flame.

Fire Strip Roll is especially interesting because of its completely flat form factor. It could easily be pre-cut into sections and stored in a variety of ways that would be too messy or too cramped for other forms of pre-made tinder. The flat, paper-thin form opens up a world of useful storage options.

Fire Strip Roll comes packaged in a 55 foot long roll.

LEWMODUS “Onyx” Survival Tool

LEWMODUS’ new Onyx Survival Tool is a clever survival kit that packs a ton of useful items into a small space. Even the lanyard included with the kit has more of a purpose than just hanging around your neck. It covers, or aids in covering, several survival priorities in spite of its compact size including fire making, signalling, water, and more.

This tool has so many features that I am going to embed their Instagram post here so that you can view the images with their accompanying captions:

The initial run of the LEWMODUS Onyx Survival Tool sold out very quickly. If you want to get your hands on one, follow LEWMODUS on Instagram: @LEWMODUS
