Mixing Mate

Anyone who's ever tried their own hand at painting knows what a pain it can be to deal with traditional paint cans. There's the flathead to get them open, the sticks to stir them with, the sloshing down the side, and the unreasonable force needed to close them up. Or you could just slap on a Mixing Mate. This handy tool fits snugly over standard one-quart paint can openings, and features an integrated paddle to mix the paint throughly, an integrated spout that opens with the press of a button, and an integrated grip for easy handling. Even better, it creates a tight, leak-proof seal, so all you need to do is pour out what you need and put the rest back on the shelf.

  • Keysquare

    Like to carry your keys on a carabiner? Upgrade from the climbing gear to something more refined... like the Keysquare ($36). Designed specifically for carrying your keys, it's cut and machined from a solid block of stainless steel and hand finished for durability. While it sports a long slit for attaching to a belt loop, it's still small enough to easily slide into a pocket, and like any good piece of metal, it also doubles as a bottle opener.

  • Woodman's Pal

    When spending time in the outdoors, it helps to have company — but if you lack for human companionship, at least bring along the Woodman's Pal ($70). This multi-tool features a sickle hook blade that can cut branches up to 1.5 inches in diameter in a single stroke, a 10.5 inch carbon steel blade for normal cutting, an ash hardwood handle for comfort, and a nylon wrist strap for keeping it handy. Also, it's potentially the first multi-tool to appear on Uncrate not to feature a bottle opener. [Scouted by Brian]
