bear-gryllis-gerber-giveaway

As a man, it’s within the realm of possibilities that you own a blade. You’ve probably collected a few over the years because every time you can’t find yours you just buy a new one. But are they Bear Grylls blades? If you, as a man, were pitted against The Wild, would you win? Hell yes you would – if you had a Bear Grylls bladed survival tool. In partnership with Gerber, the Ultimate Survivor himself has released a series of tools you may find useful – most notably the Scout and the Parang. The Scout is a thin, folding knife with a half inch serrated blade that’s 3.63″ long. The Parang is Bear’s re-imagining of the machete. With a carbon steel blade over a foot long, it’s a badass re-imagining indeed. Why do these two in particular concern you? Because we’re giving away one of each…

GIVEAWAY: Contest Closed!

Congrats to @bryanz
In order to win the Scout ($30) and the Parang ($43) you’re going to need to have a Twitter account. (Winning a Bear Grylls machete is enough of a reason to sign up for Twitter.) Then follow these simple steps and you could be well on your way to slicing and dicing faster than you can say “That’s not a camera man.”

1 – Follow @CoolMaterial on Twitter.
2 – Tweet something that includes the hashtag #ifiwin and this link –  http://bit.ly/dEy0AD

For instance (you don’t need the quotes):

“It’s Friday, Friday, Friday and #ifiwin I’m going to remove Rebecca Black’s vocal chords http://bit.ly/dEy0AD”

Or

“#ifiwin a Parang I’m going to give it to Survivorman Les Stroud http://bit.ly/dEy0AD”

We’ll pick a winner 4/22. Good Luck!

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
