APtravelnews/New Products—December 9th, Bob & Barb in Sevierville, TN.  At the recent Gift Show in Sevierville, TN., we had a chance to look over dozens of interesting items ranging from whiskey flasks emblazoned with eagles or fish, to Click-It Hot Use It Cold, hand-warmers. However, for this post we wanted to focus on an issue and problem one entrepreneur we met has addressed and figured out fully within the principle of K.I.S.S.  What is it? Its a simple, easy to use small holder to assist all of us in not leaving our glasses and walking off without them (see images). Rick Hopper came up with his ReadeREST;  a magnetic holder that does not require you to pop holes in your clothes to affix the holder to your shirt or blouse.  You merely slide the back plate under clothing where you want the glasses to hang from, then place the strong, magnetic, self-centering holder over that plate and voila; your ready to hang your eye-wear glasses from one of its arms, until the glasses sit safely on the holder. With its simple use, there is no more leaving your eye-wear at the market counter, restaurant table, school desk, or wherever you had previously put them down and either did, or did not remember to take them with you when you left.

“Simple is, as simplicity dictates, here’s an answer to not forgetting your eyewear anywhere! This patented item is “proudly made in America” and is perfect for the person that always keeps asking: “where are my glasses.”   Go: readeRest.com or give a call to   1-855-321-7732 Ext. 804

Knives The Worlds First and Most Important Tools of Survival & Pleasure

My "Good Old" new Buck. If your into knives, you never have enough models to use and admire!
My “Good Old” new Buck. If your into knives, you never have enough models to use and admire!

APtravelnews-Knoxville, TN.-September 21st–Without a doubt, the knife and all its iterations (swords, spear heads, sharp blades, both fixed and folding) for a myriad of needs down through the history of man on earth, is probably the most important evolving  innovation in history. Today, knives are used and also collected by millions of people throughout the world (I just sent a collector in Germany, a military Swiss Army Knife style item from the 1930’s) Today, knives are also big business, very big business indeed! Knives are a multi-billion dollar business-all manner of folders and hunting style knives are bought in shops, mail order, on e-bay, Amazon, privately through collectors, etc. Frankly, as an outdoors oriented person who fishes, hunts, plays with throwing knives and hatchets as a hobby, or any other of mine, and others pursuit in the outdoors, or of course, indoor sports such as carving, I wouldn’t leave home without my trusty blade. For today, I’m profiling a few knives that would work for anyone heading out on a hike, to fish, hunt, camp or just have with them for even the mundane opening of a letter, box or cutting a thread or rope. The following three knives are all hunter, (will profile folders at a later date) non-folders:

Buck Knives have always been a standard of excellence and when I first met Buck Senior, he told me that “excellence is always what we strive for to be the best at what we do to make “keeper” knives that become heirlooms.” This Buck Omni Hunter is part of Chuck’s family of sportsmen and womans knives. Specs: 7 ¾ overall with a 3 ¼ 420 HC Stainless Drop Point blade. Handle: Black rubberized thermoplastic with a lanyard hole. Heavy Nylon belt sheath MSRP: $45.95  www.buckknives.com

 

Kershaw Antelope Hunter ll,  is a fine tool of a knife it comes in hunter orange and black. You can trust the finger grooved co-polymer handle to stay firmly in your hand through the thick and thin of blazing your trail.Specs:  overall length is 8 1/8 with a 3 5/8—8Cr13 MoV Stainless steel blade. Finger grooved Co-polymer handle in orange or black. It comes with a leather belt sheath MSRP: $34.95  www.kershawknives.com

Shrade SharpFinger comes in a brown, orange or camo handled stainless steel knife. I personally have an originally made knife for the past 3-decades and think it is the most ergonomic knife in my collection. As its namesake says, it is really like an extension of the index finger allowing precision in cutting open a fish or any cutting job at home or on the trail. A great knife to carry anytime! Specs: 7-inch overall length full tang for strength. The 3 ½ stainless steel blade is Cr 17 MoV High Carbon. A through- the- tang -lanyard hole. MSRP:  $25.95 www.taylorbrandsllc.com

New Shockles Bungee Cord is Strong Tough and Unique!

P1030006

APtravelnews-New Products-October 29th,–I finally found a “Bungee Cord on Steroids.” The Davis Instruments company has recently released to its distributors the “Shockle.” Whats a Shockle? A super strong –holds up to 300 pounds, tough U V-resistant nylon covered 10X stronger bungee cord than you’ve ever experienced. The units comes in 12, 18 or 24 inch models. To fully stretch one of these babies. You have to put at least 25-pounds of pull before being able to snap the 316 Stainless Steel snaps. Great for Kayaking, camping, RV’s, sailing and fishing. I tested an 18-inch Shockle to hold my farm ladder on top of my golf cart roof without it sliding around. The bungee is so strong that my ladder didn’t budge on my bumpy ride to the barn. These bungees hold fast ropes, hoses, lumber on the back of the trailer or pickup, anything you want to keep tightly held and controlled. I give a big “thumbs-up” to Davis and their Shockles! Oh, and by the way, if you carry bicycles on your vehicle, these bungees will secure them for you tightly!. P1030007
