GDPR and Us

Lately you’ve probably gotten dozens of emails to update the privacy policies of various websites so that they comply with the new General Date Protection Regulations (GDPR) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation that everyone needs to comply with. We aren’t sending an email like that, nor am I asking you to agree to a new policy- and here’s why.

The Dark Side of Mods

Main

Some time ago I had written about the value of a modded tool, and the short version is that I had come up with an equation that I use to determine what a mod is worth to me. With so many modders out there these days, many of which charging an exorbitant fee for their services, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

This was meant as a loose guideline to help folks get into the ballpark of what something was worth, and, in short, it looks something like this:

Materials (=all materials - recoverable materials) + labor + Profit (%)= Value

Maxpedition Entity Small Sheath

Maxpedition Entity Small Sheath 2Since I got the package from Maxpedition last month I have been using the heck out of the stuff to see if it’s just pretty, or whether it is worthy of the Maxpedition name. After putting a few miles on the stuff I thought it was a bout time I talked about the sheath specifically.

I wasn’t sure what size sheath to get when I ordered them from Maxpedition, so I asked them to determine what size would be best to fit a Leatherman Surge. It’s good that I did because I was thinking about getting the large one because I figured the big Surge would need it.

Friendly Skies? Nope.

TSA 03 copy large

A few days ago I recieved this message on Facebook from a longtime member and friend, who shall remain nameless, and who has had their Leatherman Tread confiscated by airline security.  Naturally, as you can imagine, this member was seriously concerned.

Maxpedition Entity 27

Back 16

Two months ago I shared a bit from a press release on the new Maxpedition Entity Series bags and accessories, and now, thanks to the fine folks at Maxpedition, I am the proud owner of the Entity 27 backpack, the small sheath and a utility pouch. It's always fun to get an advance product and be one of the first people to review it. If you still aren't familiar with the Entity series, you can see all about it here: MAXPEDITION ENTITY SERIES

In short, they are a new line of what Maxpedition is calling Non Tactical/Tactical (or NTT for short- get it? NTT= En Ti Ty) series products which includes bags, sheaths and accessories. At this point I really have to issue a formal apology to Maxpedition, as, looking at the pictures, I thought these were hideous. And, further, I thought they were silly, with the guy in the video walking around in a tactical hat and skintight tactical turtleneck (the "tactile-neck" for you Archer fans)- I mean how low key can you be when you are dressed like a modern urban ninja?

Fake or real Tread?

Tread 12Months ago I bought a fake Leatherman Tread in black for $50. Now I have a legitimate Leatherman Tread, also in black, and while I paid considerably less than the $312.00 price tag on it, you can rest assured that it was still several times as much as the fake. But, it's worth it for the real thing, right? After all, the Leatherman brand is built in the USA and quality is the defining factor, while the knockoff is.... well, it's a cheap hunk of China made crap, right? Let's find out.

Titanium Spork

Spork 1

Another part of my cheap gear order has arrived, and this one is a titanium spork similar to the Light My Fire type sporks. This is the third item from this order, which also includes the Teeny Sling Bag of POWER and the cheapo zoom lens doohickey.

Naturally the first thing I did with this cheapo spork is test to see if it was magnetic. As you know, titanium is not usually considered to be an inexpensive metal, and so I thought I would check to see if the titanium was substituted with cheaper steel. While I still cannot verify that it is titanium, I can say that it had absolutely no attraction to the rare earth magnets I have, so that is at least a good sign.
