It’s tough to separate an outdoorsman from their favorite knife. That’s exactly what leading knifemaker Steel Will kept in mind when designing its new Gekko 1500 — a versatile folding pocket knife equally at home in the wild or the urban jungle.

A diminutive lock-back knife, the Gekko 1500 (MSRP $229.99) is a mere 4.89 inches in length when folded. Fully deployed, the knife stretches to 8.98 inches. It’s 3.94-inch blade is crafted from N690Co, an Austrian steel that is extremely effective at holding an edge and known for its wear resistance. The blade shape and high grinds gives this blade exceptional strength and cutting performance. Covered with small, unidirectional strokes in a uniform pattern, the Gekko blade is a perfect base for the Satin finish that gives it a matte surface rendering most minor wear and scratches unnoticeable.

The handle is stylishly crafted from Micarta — a phenolic resin popular with knifemakers due to its moisture resistance, dielectric properties and durability — providing a firm, stable grip, even in inclement weather.

Designed for ambidextrous use, the Gekko 1500 is equally controllable in the right or left hand, and the detachable

clip may be mounted in two positions for increased versatility. The blade can handle increased loads thanks to the tensile strength of its distinctive locking mechanism — which is easy to locate and operate with either hand. In addition to the clip, the knife can be stored in a nylon holster or via an integral lanyard hole that doubles as a glass breaker. The Gekko 1500 is a folding knife that handles and performs professionally and is equipped to go head-to-head with fixed-blade knives.

Steel Will creates the world’s best knives by seeking out and using the finest time-tested metals and materials from around the world including Japan, Austria and America. Each and every knife achieves the distinct properties for which it was designed and is produced with scrupulous attention to detail and design. All Steel Will knives are backed by a non-transferable life-time warranty.

Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All

It is a fact that the largest travel locations are also beyond popular. Among the downsides of this fact is that when you’re looking for peace, quiet, and basically a chance to do nothing more than spend time with yourself and, perhaps, one other best friend, the most popular places don’t offer that. In other words, it is the most remote (sometimes most beautiful) spots out there that you want to visit. If so, here are just a few that are there for the taking:

Add Value with Summer Home Renovation Projects

There are a whole list of summer activities for you and the kids planned. Most of them, of course, you want to be nothing but fun, such as grilling outside on the patio or swimming in the pool. However, having the backyard pool and patio are two things you really need in place before either of those activities could be enjoyed. And building this area could be a great summer project in order to not only get the house you really want, but add value to the home for a future sale.

Entertainment

Southern Belles Vie for Union Soldier’s Affections in Sofia Coppola’s Sublime Tale of Seduction

The Beguiled is a Civil War saga based on the best seller of the same name by the late novelist/playwright Thomas Cullinan (1919-1995). The sublime tale of seduction was first adapted to the screen in 1971 as a melodramatic revenge flick starring Clint Eastwood. This relatively-refined remake was directed by Sofia Coppola whose effort was richly rewarded at Cannes where she became only the second woman to win Best Director in the history of the festival.
