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

Morakniv has offered a special edition colorway in their popular, excellent, and affordable Basic 511 (carbon steel) and Basic 546 (stainless steel) every year for the last several years. These special colors can be a great way to pick up a Mora that stands out from all the others.

2021’s limited editions feature muted grey and green colors that look great. While both the 511 and 546 feature the same colors, their positions on the handle are swapped between the models so that they can be identified at a glance.

Apart from the limited edition colors, these are the same proven 511 and 546 that you have come to know and love. Learn more at the Morakniv webite: Morakniv.se

Serepick Comb Kit

Serepick’s Comb Set covers many of the most common solid body padlocks you are likely to encounter. These full size comb picks feature sandwiched metal handles and come in a set of 4 combs with a tension wrench.

For those who are unfamiliar with combs, they capitalize on the fact that many lock makers leave too much room above the pin stacks for ease of manufacture. A comb, when selected properly for the specific lock to be bypassed, allows the user to push the entire pin stack above the sheer line in order to rotate the lock. Sometimes this can be done with just the comb but it can be easier (or even necessary) to use a tension wrench in combination with the comb.
