Wera Koloss Hammer Ratchet

We've all used our ratchets as hammers at one point or another, so why not go ahead and make it official? The Wera Koloss Hammer Ratchet ($100) is designed to take blows with the best of them, thanks to a drop-forged hammer head, but also functions as a heavy-duty reversible ratchet with a minimal six degree return angle, a fine-tooth mechanism, a multi-component Kraftform handle that ensures a secure grip.

  • Best Made Cloth Extension Cords

    Extension cords are a necessary evil — especially around the holidays — but no one said they had to be ugly. Most of them just are. Not these Best Made Cloth Extension Cords ($40), though. These eight-foot pulley-style cotton cords are woven in Massachusetts using three copper wires, each of which is stranded and left for dead covered in PVC insulation, then twisted together, padded, and braided with a cotton weave. Solid brass plug blades and rubber plugs round out the offering, which may have you looking for new reasons to string cords all over your house.

  • Stihl Battery-Powered Chain Saw

    Green, low-noise, and lightweight aren't normally attributes we associate with chainsaws, but you'll find them all in the Stihl Battery-Powered Chain Saw ($350). This particular unit is powered by a 36-volt lithium-ion battery, eliminating the need for awkward and dangerous power cords, or smelly, emission-producing gas engines. In addition, it features a toolless quick chain adjuster, a foot-long guide bar, and offers up to 60 minutes of run time on the AP 160 battery or 35 on the AP 80, neither of which are included — nor is a charger, so expect to incur some extra cost should you decide to go cordless.
