Hey friends.  I had to show you my Swiss Army multitool.  This is a super rare traveler’s set.  I couldn’t even find a picture of it on the internet.  I bought this 10 years ago while traveling through Europe.  I saved around 50% by purchasing it in Switzerland, compared to the states.  The set cost me 127 Francs.  Which today converts to $138.99 US.  It’s one of the nicest knives Victorinox makes, and came with a compass, Maglite Solitare keychain flashlight, and leather carrying case.  The best part is, I got the side of the knife engraved with my name for free.  It’s mint, but I’m going to start using it as part of my EDC, or every day carry. 

Unfortunately, I left the batteries in the flashlight, and now I can’t get the end cap off to fix it.  So I’m sending it to Maglite for a free repair or replacement.  I just have to pay for shipping.  That’s the second flashlight I’ve found this week that had the batteries leak.  Not cool.  Lesson learned.  Take the batteries out, or keep them fresh.  You can find just the knife for sale online for about $75.  It got a 5 star rating on Amazon.  It’s no wonder, because they’ve been in business since 1884.

Survival Bros acquired a new Full HD camera today. The Panasonic TS4 (Tough) is loaded with GPS, compass, barometer, and an altimeter. Plus, it’s 12.1 megapixels, shockproof, dust proof, freeze proof, and waterproof. It’s adventurous. And the lens is Leica. I bought mine for $250 on Amazon. I really like its durability, and the quality videos it produces. I will put it to work, beat it up, and give you guys a full product review. Peace.
