Every photographer will love to get their hands on these products designed especially for them!

Behind every good photograph is a photographer with his loved and trusted tools! Being married to a part-time photographer, I know there is no visible end to his to-buy list, and how would there be? Photography is an intricate and expensive craft, and although the advent of phone cameras has made capturing photographs a breeze, there is an equal number of people who believe that images via the traditional methods are more controlled and dependent on their manual skills. This collection we have today is especially aimed at all of those who shoot with a camera or are looking to enter the world of photography, with these products aimed at helping you focus (literally) at making your travel and your craft an easier extension of your everyday life!

The Kershaw Barricade knife also packs a seatbelt cutter and emergency glass-breaker

The Kershaw Barricade is EDC that’s absolutely worth carrying, especially while traveling. Its design doesn’t just pack a nice, black-oxide-coated 8Cr13MoV steel blade with a drop-point edge, it also packs two other potentially life-saving features. Built into the Barricade’s practically unbreakable glass-filled nylon handle (that’s also colored fluorescent orange, making it easy to spot in emergencies) are a Seatbelt Cutter, and a Glass-breaker, two exceptionally handy things to have on you no matter where you travel. The seatbelt cutter, integrated into the base of the handle, allows you to swiftly and smoothly slice through seatbelt fabric, and the carbide glassbreaker tip right at the bottom, allows you to instantly shatter the tough triplex glass used in automobiles. Together, the Barricade isn’t just a useful tool for getting yourself out of a fix, it could also potentially help you save a lot of other people’s lives… especially if you’re a first-responder. It also has a pretty darn amazing blade too, courtesy Kershaw’s experience in building some of the finest pocket knives known to man…

EDC, Stationery, the MAGCON is all in one

It’s hard to keep track of all the features the Magcon has and all the problems the Magcon solves, but I’ll try my level best to stay on top of things in this article. This is the Magcon. It’s an artist’s, engineer’s, designer’s, architect’s, student’s, and general human’s best friend. The Magcon isn’t just a stationery tool, it’s a real tool too. It packs a pen-stand, rounder/compass, wrench, scale, bottle opener, and drawing guide all in one.

There are two very clear ways of looking at the Magcon. It serves the purpose of a drawing tool, and it also works as an EDC tool. The Magcon comprises two utility modules, a straight ruler with linear perforations, and a second abstract ruler with a curved profile, drawing guides, a set of wrenches, and a bottle opener. These modules can be used independently as you would a scale or a french curve ruler, but things get more interesting when you introduce Magcon’s Compass base to the mix.

The Compass is a solid piece of machined stainless steel that works not just as a compass-guide, but also as a pen-stand. It has a hole at its base that you can use to place the Compass wherever you need, and magnetically allows the ruler units to snap to it. Once magnetically attached, the ruler units swing freely in 360° around the base, allowing you to create circles and measure arcs nearly perfectly, while achieving this feat without piercing the paper. Markings on the Compass base even let you measure degrees as you draw circular lines, giving you control and intuition, bundled together in tools that don’t change the way you make circles or lines, but just innovatively improve the process and cut the clutter, thanks to its minimal design.

There’s a lot the Magcon can do. It can let you make perfect lines, arcs, circles, measure drawings, make mandala patterns, and even let you rest your pen/pencil in it when you’re taking a break. In fact, it’ll do you another solid and let you open a nice bottle of soda while you’re on that break!

We’re in awe of the TOPS Quickie Karambit’s slender, functional design

tops_quickie_karambit_1

Form follows function, as the saying goes, right? The Quickie Karambit by TOPS exploits that adage in a way that gives it quite a visual advantage. Unlike most knives with thick, grippable grips and long, sharp blades, the Quickie keeps things short and sweet. The Quickie doesn’t give you a handle to grip onto, but rather fills the negative space of your hand when you close your fingers into a fist. This gives you a sense of comfort as you hold the blade, while also resulting in a karambit that’s unsettlingly thin, but just as effective. The Quickie also comes with an index finger ring that lets you hold the knife properly, and a two-edged talon-shaped blade that’s characteristic of Karambit designs.

The Karambit, originally believed to be developed in West Sumatra, takes inspiration from the claws of a tiger. As with most weapons of the region, it was originally an agricultural implement designed to rake roots, gather threshing and plant rice in most of Southeast Asia. It also worked as a self-defense weapon against predators or in combat. The modern karambit falls under the category of EDC, being used for cutting, shredding, and raking in the outdoors. The Quickie, built for utility, enables all sorts of outdoor cutting activities, and even comes with a neat sheathe to cover the blade when not in use!
