The $4 Walmart Knife - Ozark Trail "Flip Opening" Knife Review



I don't typically shop at Walmart. But sometimes it's 2 AM and you realize you're out of toner for your printer, and in those instances you are typically glad to have a 24-Hour Supercenter nearby.


And in those kinds of trips, I'll often swoop through a bunch of different aisles on my way to checkout, just to see the sights. On that last 2 AM toner run, I happened across the famed "$4 Walmart Knife," pictured above.

New Foursevens Stuff


I like Foursevens gear. It's always well designed and they don't seem to waste time with flashy but ultimately useless junk. Good emitters, real HAIII and top-notch QC. You pay a bit more for it than similar gear from other manufacturers but the polish is generally worth it.

This brings us to the revamped Preons and the new Navi Keysmart.

How To Neutralize Your Home Network

I'll begin by saying this is not a review of the Infant Optics DXR-5. Not directly, anyway. While it's a fine baby monitor, and one I am happy with overall, there's one thing that people should be aware of if they're wondering how a video monitor relates to other wi-fi enabled gadgets in the home. It's not something you want to find out the hard way.

It Came From Kickstarter - PiCO Ti Bottle Opener


I like having a bottle opener on me at all times, but it's gotta be something that can go on my keyring and not rip a hole in my jeans. 

My Brewzer has come in handy more times than I can count, and while there are alternative methods for opening bottles, none of them are especially reliable and are probably going to mean a lot of spilled beer the first time you try them.
