The Opinel No.8 knife is one of the most iconic knives ever created, so it should come as no surprise that their collaboration with L.L.Bean is equally iconic. The Opinel No.8 L.L.Bean Moosehead Knife takes the popular size, shape, functionality and heritage of the classic and combines it with a handle made from maple reclaimed from the bottom of Maine’s Moosehead Lake that’s over a century old. The knife is made in France by Opinel the same way they’ve been doing it since the late 1800s and includes a 12c27 Sandvik stainless-steel blade, Virobloc safety ring (to keep the blade secure when it’s not in use) and that gorgeous salvaged wood handle. In other words, this knife combines everything that made the original an icon and adds some more character with the L.L.Bean treatment from the reclaimed wood handle.

Every tactical gear manufacturer offers something in the way of a tactical pen, but they’re not all as robust as the TriTac from StatGear. It’s engineered from aircraft grade aluminum with an ergonomic grip and bolt action pen lever, and the included Fisher Space Pen ink can write in all types of conditions, from a light drizzle to a stint in space. Obviously, no tactical pen is complete without a carbide window punch, but the TriTac goes above and beyond, adding a 440C stainless steel, razor sharp blade.
