Ceramic Is The New Steel

The smart cutters and choppers these days are using ceramic knives because they stay so sharp for so long, and who remembers to have their knives sharpened? Ours measure 7" long over all, with a red, green, or deep aqua handle, a 3" blade and a sheath. Don't go into the kitchen without one. Slice, dice, chop and mince, and forget about sharpening. Like you always do.

Soft Touch

And easy to store. One of the better pick-up tools we've seen. Folds to just over 16" to store, but locks open at 30" with spring steel arms on an aluminum frame. It has soft, suction-cup-shaped grabbers and big, locking pistol grip. Pretty good gripping capacity too-maybe to 10 lbs or so. Get one for Mom, because at her age she can't reach the things she used to. And then get another one for yourself, because you'll be Mom's age before you know it.

Bluetooth Hockey Puck

Shaped like a thick hockey puck, this Bluetooth® speaker won’t knock your teeth out (like a real hockey puck) but it might blow your mind. Rechargeable and portable, the speaker measures 2-1/2” dia x 1-1/2” thick in dark blue with the logo of the bank whose name adorns a hockey rink in Our Nation's Capital. Feel free to cover it up, like the Blackhawks fans in our office did. Rechargeable batteries are lithium, which is better, and it charges via the included USB to micro-USB cord. Comes with a microphone, microSD card slot, volume control, play/pause/phone selector, and next-song feature. Sounds good enough for Paul to drown out Pat's ambient Australian heavy metal holiday music. Priced at half the MSRP.

2" flywheel in a well-made metal frame. The trick is the same as it has been for 100 years. Wind the string through the spindle, pull it firmly to set the flywheel spinning, and perform effortless balancing magic on pencil tips, string tightropes, and the like. We tend to forget that bicycles and aircraft navigation both rely heavily on gyroscopic principles. It's never too early to tell the kids. Besides, it's fun.

Just the one, actually, but it’s been sliced in half so the pair is perfectly symmetrical and mighty pretty.

Our each is a book-matched pair of polished ammonites fossils of a single critter halved and polished to a bright symmetrical shininess. The colors vary from light tan to dark brown and we’ll pick because we have impeccable ammonitical color-shade taste. And yes, they’re just screaming to become cuff-links or earrings.

RUBBER EXERCISE RESISTANCE BANDS

Who Needs A Gym?

Resistance bands. No, not a bunch of obstreperous rockers, but home gyms small enough to stick in your hip pocket. These rubber stretch bands are 6-1/4” wide and will stretch to (9) feet. Good for full-body strength training, yoga or Pilates, or just a little light body stretching. In the resistance-band universe, these would be medium strength. We'll send you (1) in red or blue depending on what's on top of the pile. Your muscles won’t care—they’ll thank you.

Green Laser Pointer Par Excellence!

Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure. You will, of course, use it to point out chimney cracks to the tuck-pointer, a cracked limb to the tree-trimmer, and the crack in your profit picture during a slide presentation. You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (not included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip. (Sorry case not included). An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.

Ours are 2-1/2" dia, with a wind-up key.
