Columbia River Knife And Tool’s Eat N Tool

Columbia River Knife And Tool's Eat N Tool 9100Kc Black Oxide Multi Tool

At first glance it looks like the familiar spoon/fork “spork” combination, but it’s really a lightweight, high-tech outdoor tool.

The right side of the handle is ground to provide an emergency screwdriver blade, which will also work as a pry for opening canisters. The large central hole is not only designed for finger gripping, but also keeps the Eat’N Tool weight down. Three metric wrench reliefs (10 mm, 8 mm, 6 mm) are useful for emergency repairs, and result in a tool weight of just 1.5 ounces (43 g). For easy snap-on carry on D-rings or loops on clothing and packs, there is a carry carabiner (non-weight-bearing). And it’s CHEAP!

Book: The Lunatic Express

The Lunatic Express

Travel and technology journalist Hoffman (Hunting Warbirds) had two motives for penning this tour of the world’s most life-threatening modes of transportation, including trains in India, buses in South America, and trucks in Afghanistan: to expose the “parallel reality,” obscured by the tourism industry, of millions for whom “travel was still a punishing, unpredictable, and sometimes deadly work of travail”; and for thrills.

By the first measure-showing how much of the world gets from place to place-Hoffman is commendably fascinating: his depiction of the horrors people endure just to see family members or get to work is unforgettable.

Unfortunately, Hoffman’s secondary motive dominates much of the ruminating prose, and it’s hard to sympathize with his middle-aged family-man angst when he’s subjecting his teenage daughter to a 24-hour ride across South American mountains in a bus with no bathroom. Elsewhere, a powerful description of the Indian train system segues into a tepid quasi-love affair. Readers with the patience to avoid some self-indulgent side-tracks will find much to reconsider during their next tough commute.
