Kansept REI

Written by

Greg Wegrzycki, better known as Karambitmaker in the knife community, is a long-time martial arts practitioner, knife collector, and maker. While his passion primarily lies in crafting karambits and curved blade knives, he occasionally ventures into more utilitarian projects. The Kansept Rei is one such endeavor, inspired by the tactical folders from the early 90s. This review dives into its design, functionality, and overall performance.

KosiM Sharpener

KosiM Sharpener Review: Precision and Passion from Ukraine

On my sharpening journey, I've reviewed quite a few different sharpeners. One thing is abundantly clear: Ukraine is a hub for some amazing knife and tool companies. One of these companies that has grabbed my attention is KosiM.

**The Origins of KosiM**

The company started its journey in 2013 while founders Marina and Kostya were still working regular jobs. The young family unknowingly opened a new chapter in their future, although they didn't realize it at the time. They began by purchasing goods from China and experimenting with buying and selling. They named their website KosiM (a blend of their names, Kostya and Marina).

Today, KosiM boasts nearly a complete self-sustaining production cycle for sharpening systems and stones, with plans for further development. They are seeking distributors abroad to overcome language barriers and expedite delivery times for the convenience of their customers.

The Multitool Mindset


The Multitool Mindset

Messenger creation 339ed4de 76bf 4b49 9ccf e11909bb9f6e

Multitools amaze me.  It’s not the details of any given tool that amaze me but the main idea behind all of them: response.  We are the kind of guys who do something about something we can do something about.  That’s the Multitool Mindset.

Responding to an emergent situation is the purpose of a Multitool.  The details of various makes and models can be (and are) debated endlessly, and I suspect many of us find them all wanting in some way.  Some of us collect Multitools, and I’m always delighted to see the development of the designs and the possibilities they reflect.  But what we all probably agree on is that carrying a Multitool (or multiple Multitools) makes us able to respond to emergent situations.  If we have a few basic implements with us, we can solve a problem or just make something a little easier to handle.  From saving steps to saving lives, we can respond to situations.

I grew up in farm country, where almost everyone works with their hands.  Many carried a pair of pliers in a scabbard on their belts, usually right in front of a folding knife in a sheath.  Some would have a screwdriver or adjustable wrench in the scabbard with the pliers, surely because their circumstances required it.  The foundation for the plier-based multitool emerged from guys like this, who went far from home to see to things and needed to be able to act when they got there.  I myself carried pliers and knife on my belt for many years, first on farms and then on my first job in a factory.  When I started college, I carried a Swiss Army Knife in one pocket and a small ViseGrip in the other.  It was logical to me to do so.  My surroundings and purposes changed, but the Multitool Mindset remained. 

When the early mass-market, plier-based tools came out, I felt as if the collective consciousness actually existed: someone finally united the SAK and the pair of pliers.  My first was a Leatherman SuperTool, and l’m still in awe, really, about the thought behind it.  I was a graduate student at the time, and many people asked why I needed it.  They didn’t get it.  They didn’t have the Multitool Mindset.  I needed to be prepared to respond.  It wasn’t a specific problem that I could reasonably assume would happen.  It was feeling ready, period.  Being in classrooms, rather than fields or factories, did not remove the Multitool Mindset. 

That’s because having a Multitool not only allows for the practical matters but also leads to a sort of vision.   Having the means to do something leads to seeing things that may otherwise be unavailable.  It’s an extension of preparedness and a part of the Multitool Mindset.  An expanded ability to respond undergirds an expanded ability to conceive of responses…if you have the Multitool Mindset. 

The Multitool Mindset melds practicality and innovation.  The design of the tools attests to that.  We users of Multitools also embody it; in fact, Multitools exist because of folks like us-like the mechanic who raised me, the Boy Scout troop I was part of, the farmers I worked for, the factory workers I labored beside, the soldiers I served with, the the good people of Multitool.org. 

We may prefer one brand over another, one design over another, or one EDC approach over another, but our ultimate purpose is the same.  We see the sense in being ready to respond to a situation, to formulate an innovative solution that may not otherwise have occurred to us, to do something about something we can do something about. 

That’s the Multitool Mindset.

Here’s an in-depth look at what this multi-tool brings to the table, along with personal experiences using it.

Guava is the new black?

Written by

So it seems that the new color for the Leatherman Signal is Guava. I'm cool with giving people new color options, it allows people to personalize a tool, maybe even match it with an outfit. But, I'm used to multitools being stainless it black oxide. Maybe I'm old school, but I would much rather have a tool I'm not afraid to use hard. One I'm not afraid of chipping the paint on. Leatherman has changed some in recent years, trimming it's lineup and offering customized options instead. It's an interesting time for sure. If this is your thing, grab yourself a new Signal in guava.

KnifeYouLike Sharpening System

Written by

Since reviewing sharpeners, I get ads for all kinds of systems and occasionally see something new. I recently came across a company from Lithuania called KnifeYouLike. The company has been in the business for a while; before getting into retail, they were engaged in the sale, repair, and sharpening of knives. They transitioned from one business model to another to give customers the opportunity to take care of their knives themselves. Although they offered ceramic rods, many users struggled to achieve good results with them, so that's when they introduced the concept of angle guides.
