A while back we did a write-up on iPhone SkateBacks made by Grove. Grove is a Portland Oregon company that takes the waste material from making skateboards and transforms it into beautiful accessories for apple products. They have now created the iPhone 5 Grove Skate Case ($149). Made from the same waste material no two cases are the same and you get full protection for your iPhone and not just the back. And you not only get a great looking case, but you also have a positive impact on the environment.
When you hear the term best tactical tomahawks the first thing that comes to mind are Cowboys and Native Americans. But modern tactical tomahawks are much more than scalping instruments. They're general purpose tools that can also be used as weapons. The first tomahawks had sharp stones, usually flint, attached to wooden handles by a cord. Modern tomahawks have taken these designs to the next level. Tomahawk heads are now made from high carbon steel usually with a pick on the other side. Handles are made composites that stand up to extreme forces. Additionally, modern tomahawks may have features like MOLLE-compatible sheaths, and pry bars on the ends of handles.In our list, we've gathered some of the top Tactical Tomahawks we could find. First up is the Browning Shock N' Awe Tactical Tomahawk.

Their new Direct Vibe Structure provides deeper bass, and smoother mids and highs. So how low do they go? Reported frequency response is 3 Hz 28,000 Hz. That 3 Hz reading, if accurate, gives the MDR-XB910 some of the lowest bass response around. These headphones are due to hit stores in April so keep an eye out.
