TSA-Auction-Confiscated-Knives

GovDeals “provides services to various government agencies that allow them to sell surplus and confiscated items via the Internet.” It works like a slightly clunkier combination of eBay and Craigslist, but the important part is that it’s the site that the TSA and other agencies use to auction off their confiscated materials. The collection of goods you’ll find on GovDeals varies from day to day, but there are some pretty ridiculous deals up there right now if you’re in the market for knives or multi-tools with questionable backgrounds. The Portland Police Bureau is currently selling 40 pounds of assorted pocket knives (Kershaw, Gerber, etc.) at around $11 a pound. Pennsylvania State Surplus has a lot of 15 Leatherman Multitools that averages just over $20 each. Getting the exact knife you want isn’t as easy as simply buying it on Amazon and waiting three days, but there’s something to be said for the fun of the auction. And if you haven’t already, start following the TSA on Instagram to see some of the confiscated items that will likely end up on GovDeals in the future.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
