It's about time someone designed a true multi-tool that didn't look like a Swiss Army knife. The Byrd Harp Multi Tool ($35) instead borrows its design from the stringed musical instrument, with functional slotted- and Phillips-head screwdrivers, a punch/awl, a gimlet, a mini-saw, a corkscrew, a file, and a small/large head hammer that doubles as a bottle opener, all of which rotate out individually from an outer ring and fold flat for insertion into an included leather carrying case. Because you never know when you'll need to do some carpentry while sipping on some Opus One.
With a classic red and gray design that dates back to the 1940s and modern tech under the bonnet, the Boomer 8N Tractor ($TBA) is, well, a modern classic. This old-timey tractor is powered by a 50hp, four-cylinder diesel engine, and features a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for a car-like feel, a four-wheel drive axle for SUV-like handling, a large operating platform for maximum comfort, and a three-point hitch for easy attachment of add-ons. Those green/yellow-driving neighbors of yours are going to be jealous. [Thanks, David]
When you hear the words "Fiskars" and "mower" used together, you might imagine a treacherous fraterinty gag in which a pledge is forced to trim the grass using nothing but a pair of two-bladed cut-ups, but as it turns out the company makes real mowers, and damn fine ones at that. The Fiskars Momentum Reel Mower ($250) uses the company's InertiaDrive technology to store energy until added power is needed while also reducing friction and blade wear, and also offers the greatest cutting range of any reel mower thanks to a forward-mounted cutting reel and long wheel base. And since it's people-powered, it's also among the greenest mowers you can buy. [Thanks, Mike]
