We've all seen the video of the guy walking along a deep snowy path in old time snow shoes, and seeing as he takes each step that he looks like he's wearing a cinder block on each foot. He looks this way because the snow shoes he's wearing are flat and rigid, so each time he steps he's got to lift the enter shoe out of the snow which expends a lot of effort and energy. The TSL Symbioz Snowshoes ($TBA) look to eliminate all of that discomfort and effort. The carbon inserts provide hyper-flexibility and allows the Symbioz to easily adapt to your foot, your stride and the terrain you're trying to conquer. They are light and provide grip while providing natural foot movement, allowing you to expend less energy during your winter walks. And don't worry if you're in a hurry because they're easy to put on due their pre-adjusted memory and telescoping binding.
The Griffin by Prometheus Design Werx ($289) is a high precision machined blade finished to the highest standards. It was purposefully designed to create a high performance blade distilled down to its purest form. The Griffin is made form Bohler M390 steel, has an overal length of 9.2" and a blade length of 4". The handle has drilled holes to reduce overall weight and features a butt end chisel pry tip with a cats paw nail puller.

If you're looking to add to your fixed blade arsenal, you owe it to yourself to take a long look at The Griffin.
