The Tops Knives El Chete Machete ($300) was made for one thing...to chop. This is no wimpy knife. It features a blade that is a foot long which is made out of 1095 RC 56-58 steel and has a new finish called acid rain. The handle is made from sandwiched Micarta and will fill your hand like a handle or small ax handle. The complete ax measures just over 17 inches and weighs a whopping two pounds. If you're in the market for a wonderful hiking or camping knife look no further than the El Chete Machete.
MKII is located right in my neck of the woods, off the mainline in scenic Wayne, Pa. The company was created by Bill Yao in 2001 and he hasn't looked back since. MKII specializes in custom and Swiss Made watches sold under the MKII brand. The MKII Nassau Diver Watch ($895+) is one of their most venerable diver watches. Based off of their hugely successful MKII Kingston it features a 39mm case, a matte black no date dial, and an iconic red triangle bezel inlay. It utilizes a high-grade Swiss made movement and Rhodium plated hands for high nighttime visibility. The crystal is a double domed sapphire with an anti-reflective coating on the interior. The Nassau comes with a black Nato band and for $50 more you can get a stainless steel band.
Destroy the competition with the Echo1 M134 MiniGun ($3900). This Airsoft MiniGun is an absolute beast. Weighing in at 35 lb. the M134 has full CNC construction and comes with two barrel options; a 21.4 inch and a shorter 13.5 inch barrel that utilizes a quick change system.As far as performance, the M134 fires BBs at 390 fps at a rate of 100 BBS per second or 6,000 per minute. The mag holds 1700 BBs. If your using it full on for suppression you'll go through that mag in about 17 seconds so practicing quick reloads before you get this guy out in the field is a must.For power the M134 comes with a converter box, but requires, at a minimum, a 12v battery with at least 1 milliamp. To carry all that stuff I suggest looking into getting some additional accessories including a plate carrier for the battery, a pouch for the convertor and a sling for the weapon.One of the next videos shows the M134 in action and the other is a friendly Airsoft war to give newbies an idea of what it's all about.

Sebastian Copeland is a world renowned photographer, polar explorer, author and environmental activist. His book Arctica ($90) looks to pay tribute to the world we know as the north pole. He also wants to draw awareness to its perilous plight. Although the pictures presented within its pages are beautiful, Arctica's true aim is pragmatic and hopes to inspire us to live and create a more sustainable future for this beautiful blue rock we live on.
