Wherever you carry a blade, it needs to be sharp. So keep it in top form with the Work Sharp x Ken Onion Knife & Tool Sharpener. Hall of Fame knife maker Ken Onion teamed up with Work Sharp to create the sharpener, which features a variable speed heavy duty motor, an adjustable precision sharpening guide, and premium flexible abrasive belts. The belts are the same ones Onion uses when he's making custom knives, and they'll keep each knife strong and sharp without overheating the steel.
Staying prepared for an emergency doesn't have to mean keeping a gaudy red box around. Born from the aftermath of the Great East Japan earthquake of 2011, the Minim Aid Emergency Kit offers a number of useful items in a sleek package. The tube-like waterproof case, light enough to be buoyant and available in three colors, holds a series of tube-shaped tools — a hand-crank radio that can also charge other USB devices (like the included lantern), a simple raincoat, a water container/cup, and a multipurpose case. There's a removable strap for carrying it with you, and the whistle hidden in the cap makes sure you can get the attention of rescuers should you need it.

Sporting an all-black paintjob and completely devoid of logos, the Nemo Special Ops Underwater Drill was made for use by special forces — but that doesn't mean it can't help you get things done around the house. It's powered by a 1000-watt brushless motor and a 6Ah battery pack, has dual LEDs for nighttime work, is water resistant down to 328ft, and comes with a diving headlamp, a diving tool belt, and a waterproof bag to keep the charger dry.
