New Fire Starting Kit from CRT Adventure Gear

Ft Worth, TX – CRT Adventure Gear is proud to introduce the Patent
Pending SP3 KITv1, a self-contained, discreet, lightweight fire starting
kit that’s ready for your next adventure.

Named for the third “survival priority”, fire, the SP3 KITv1was initially
developed as a low profile emergency fire starting kit for everyday carry
(EDC) in urban environments. As such, it uses the inconspicuous
form factor of a ballpoint pen to help it fly under the radar.

However, hunters, campers, backpackers, wilderness Search and Rescue,
and other adventurers who need fire starting provisions also appreciate
its adaptability, form and function. The SP3 KITv1 not only fits anywhere
you would normally find a ballpoint pen, it is easily broken down or
modified to meet a wide range of specific kitting needs.

Key Features/Contents:

  • Complete kit weighs less than a disposable lighter
  • Micro ballpoint pen for filling out game tags, taking notes, or other
  • writing needs
  • The heat treated, tool steel striker is designed for compact
  • effectiveness

  • rod for maximum sparking performance
  • A sandpaper patch is included with the kit that can be wrapped around the pen
  • body for field maintenance of the striker edge, if needed

Agawa Canyon Inc. Rebrands as Agawa and Releases Boreal15 and Boreal24 Saws

Agawa Canyon has rebranded as Agawa and launched two new saws in the Boreal15 and Boreal24 as companions to their original product, the Boreal21 folding bow saw.

Agawa Gear’s Boreal saws are among the best folding bow saws on the market. The entire line shares the same features with the difference between models being the size. The new Boreal15 takes a standard 15″ bow saw blade and the new Boreal24 takes a standard 24″ bow saw blade. These, along with the 21″ blade of the Boreal21, are common sizes that can be found in most hardware stores or farm supply stores though the Agawa blades are excellent.

I have owned a Boreal21 for a couple of years now and found it to be excellent. There are a number of features that make these saws stand out. They open in close in seconds without the need to touch the blade at all. They offer a similar amount of clearance to most non-folding bow saws allowing for cuts in large diameter wood. They tension automatically as part of their folding design. The 6063 aluminum frame is light, durable, and rigid. Finally, their slim form when folded completely covers the blade and is easy to slip in a pack. Based on my experience, these are excellent saws.

You can check out the new Boreal15 and Boreal24 at AgawaGear.com.

If you have every tried bumping a lock, you’ll likely know that it takes some technique but that the right hammer can really help. The hammer offered by SEREPICK is designed to offer the sharp rap needed while reducing the likelihood of damage or marring to the lock.

WNDSN Range Calculator Dog Tag

Berlin, 2020-09-17 – The best tool is the one that you always have on you, and the WNDSN MIL/MOA Range Calculator Dog Tag takes this saying literally. Upon customer request, WNDSN has developed a version of its popular MIL/MOA Range Calculator in the classic military dog tag format. This is the smallest usable range calculator, a tool that belongs on every explorer’s and marksman’s neck.

Designed for professional and recreational use, the MIL/MOA Range Calculator Dog Tag allows the user to input the MIL or MOA from their scope’s reticle and return the distance to the target of known dimension. This takes out the guesswork of gauging distance, enabling accurate range estimation and eliminating mental calculation errors while under stress.

The WNDSN MIL/MOA Range Calculator Dog Tag is made from black anodized aluminum according to U.S. standards for dog tags and weighs next to nothing. Like all WNDSN products, it features laser-engraved scales and includes instructional icons to create a self-contained tool. The backside is intentionally left blank, enabling the user to either sandwich the Range Calculator Dog Tag to the back of regular dog tags or to add additional information, velcro, or marker tabs.

“How far is my 3.5 mil, 12 inch target again?”

The Dog Tag’s scales are unitless, which means that the user can input MIL or MOA on the left side, and for the object size, if the value is in meters, input meters on the S-scale, and read the resulting distance meters on the D-scale. If the object size is in feet, feet is input and read as feet; to convert the result from feet to yards, the value is divided by 3. If the target size is in inches, the inner, left hand S-scale is used, which is graduated as 3 feet divided in 12 inches each. Inputting inches this way, the resulting value on the right hand D-scale is in feet.

For sub-degree angular sizes (1° = 60 minutes or MOA), the Dog Tag calculator provides increased precision by allowing direct input and calculation in MIL (milliradian) or MOA. The Dog Tag calculator can thus be used as a high distance/high precision companion to WNDSN Telemeters, it uses the same principles of calculating distance from angular size, only that with the Dog Tag calculator, the sighting and measurement isn’t done with the naked eye on the instrument but instead, the input values come from rangefinding reticles or similar devices.

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, are unavailable or contraindicated.

The device carries the WNDSN maker’s marks; usage instructions are engraved and supplemented by an included printed how-to booklet in both English and German. A 400-page printed comprehensive manual is available separately at WNDSN or via bookstores.
