As we mentioned earlier, new Bostitch hand tools have started popping up at Lowes home improvement stores.

That’s right, much […]

As expected, Knight Rights released a statement in response to the mass seizure of folding knives from retail stores by the NYC DA’s office. Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said: “the outrageous claims made by [District Attorney] Vance to rationalize his shakedown of honest knife retailers during his press conference were all deliberate misrepresentations or […]
Bosch is rolling out new additions to their lineup of oscillating multi-tool accessories. Since oscillating multi-tool users spend most of their times cutting various materials, Bosch initially focused on developing [MANY!] new cutting accessories.
Black & Decker’s NLP1800 Alligator Lopper 18V Cordless Chain Saw is one badass zombie killing branch pruning and log cutting tool! There’s also a corded version as well, but for about the same price the cordless offers far greater versatility.

The other day I read that sporting goods and home improvement stores were being forced to contribut substantial resources to some type of “fund” because of the types of knives they were selling. Now, it looks like the Manhattan DA is going on a miseducated spree confiscating “illegal” knives at Home Depot and other stores.
