A Swiss for your Cubans

| No TrackBacks

This nifty little Swiss Army knife includes the basic knife blade, file, nose and ear hair trimmer scissors... But it also includes a little something to go along with your 5 Cigar Caddy.  Three laser sharpened circular cigar punches! You simply choose the size you want, press your cigar into the whole and turn the tool to make a perfect cut.  This is a great tool for camping, hiking (avoid starting the forest on fire though), boating or vacationing - just don't try to take it through airport security.

The Outdoorsman's Travel Humidor

| No TrackBacks

When camping, canoeing, fly fishing, vacationing, etc., I usually enjoy bringing along a smoke or two for the occasion.  Keeping them dry, safe and well humidified is a challenge though.  Even taking a few of your favorite sticks on a weekend road trip can be tough without a good travel humidor.  The S.O. has found that this 5-cigar "caddy" works for most situations and is perfect for the outdoors.  Its water tight and shock proof construction, rugged exterior, and integrated humidifier get the job done whether in your backpack, glove box or fishing vest. 

And at this price, you can afford to lose one overboard occasionally, although it does float...

The Ultimate Pocket Knife Rescue Tool

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

When emergency strikes, where are you?  Cowering in a corner in your skirt or front and center ready to lend a hand?  Well, Nancy, now you'll be ready to serve with the Victorinox Swiss Army Rescue Tool.  The 2007 IWA Knife of the Year Winner was:

...developed and perfected in conjunction with emergency medical and rescue services in a five-year project. All parts have been subject to stringent tests, particularly the new window breaker and disc saw tools. The Rescue Tool includes the most essential functions for freeing a person from a disabled vehicle, including a rounded belt cutter which can be used to safely cut through a seat belt. All tools that have to be available quickly can be opened wearing gloves and are suitable for both right-handed and left-handed users. The one-handed blade and strong screwdriver (crate opener) are fixed in position when open thanks to the liner lock mechanism. The look of the Rescue Tool is unique as well with its luminescent yellow grip shells and bright red and yellow nylon case.
And it can also open a beer.  See this video demonstration:

Smell Ya Later...

| No TrackBacks
Since you're a "sophisticated" outdoorsman, you probably shower...  And if you shower you probably occasionally like to smell good.  But, unless you're a gardener -- a very reputable occupation for any S.O. -- you don't want to small like flowers.

This S.O. was just in the market for some new cologne, something to drive Mrs. S.O. wild.  I settled on "The One" by Dolce & Gabbana.  I was lured in by the description stating that its "base notes are cedarwood, ambergris and tobacco." 

Well, sure enough, when I took a whiff it I was carried away to thoughts of smoking a cigar while building a fence... Wonderful.  But what exactly is this ambergris you may ask...  Wikipedia explains, "ambergris is a solid, waxy, flammable substance of a dull gray or blackish color produced in the digestive system of sperm whales."   Now that's manly!  Mrs. S.O. loves it too.
