Most artists like signing their work — and just because you chose woodworking as your artistic outlet doesn't mean you shouldn't get to put your John Hancock to it. With this Signature Branding Iron, you can do exactly that. As you might imagine, it's a completely custom piece — you upload a detailed image of your signature, wait 6-8 weeks, and your personalized branding iron will arrive at your door, ready for you to heat up and sear your name into your work permanently.
Anyone who has ever built a deck knows what a pain fastening board after board can be — what with stripped screws, dropped nails, banged fingers, and pre-drilling holes. With Outlaw Fasteners ($30-$55), all of those frustrations become a thing of the past. They are made with an innovative multi-level hex head and a custom bit that creates 18 points of contact, eliminating stripped heads, making driving easier, and holding onto fasteners without the need for magnets. A self-drilling cutting tip helps get rid of screw wobble, while removing the need to drill a pilot hole. Available in a wide range of sizes, these fasteners are ready for any job you can throw at them.
No matter how prepared you think you are for the day the dead begin to walk the earth, your zombie apocalypse arsenal just isn't complete without the Gerber Downrange Tomahawk ($285). This tomahawk is built with a triple-purpose ax head featuring a sharp beveled edge that can tear through drywall, doors, or pretty much anything that stands in your way. The other side of the ax head works as a hammer, letting you smash off door knobs, locks, and more. The cutaway grip on the ax head gives you excellent leverage to use the pry bar found on the other end — perfect for getting into heavily-fortified spaces, or getting out of a jam.
