Sometimes the specs say everything. The 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale ($15,000) is a powerful bike (although less powerful that its big brother the 1199 Panigale). Its Superquadro engine delivers 148hp and 73 lb-ft of torque. The thing is it only weighs 372.5 pounds which gives it an excellent power to weight ratio. Additional features include Ride-by-Wire, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Engine Brake Control, and Ducati Quick Shift. The 899 Panigale is available in Ducati Red or Artic White. Check out the white version after the break.(more…)

I would hate to get poked by this bad boy. Microtech, located in Vero Beach, Florida, has one mission, "To Make The Best Possible Knives." They built their reputation by building their products to extremely close tolerances, by using the highest grade tool steel, aircraft alloy and component pieces, and by fabricating 95% of their parts on site. That brings us to the Microtech Jagdkommando Knife ($790). This beautiful blade is a one of a kind dagger. Named after the famed Austrian Armed Special Forces group, it features a blade with three cutting edges, fuller grooves, and drilled holes. Made from 440-A/6AL-V4 Titanium, it has an over length of 12.8", with a 7.42" blade and a total weight of 24oz. You also get an aluminum sheath with your purchase.
