Made to showcase its vintage BMW engine, the ‘Birdcage’ has a wireframe design

At first glance, the BMW Motorrad Birdcage looks like a 3D model viewed in wireframe mode. It’s easy to make that mistake, because the Birdcage, sure enough, has an incredible, wireframe-inspired design. Designed as an homage to the BMW Motorrad boxer engine the company developed 50 years ago, the Birdcage houses the absolutely stunning piece of engineering in a titanium see-through mesh-esque cage that gives the engine the attention it deserves. The titanium frame allows the curvilinear boxer...

This 3D-Printed Metal Guitar is Absolutely Indestructible.

A lot of moments in rock history are defined by the iconic guitar-smash… and while I personally don’t think it’s particularly nice to smash musical equipment, what if you designed a guitar that, if you look at the image immediately below, couldn’t be smashed?That’s what Sandvik decided to do. Designed to show off their advanced titanium additive printing techniques (and also their engineering prowess), they designed the world’s first guitar that can’t be smashed. Literally. Many have even trie...

The world’s tiniest bottle opener and multitool is deceptively small

The TiBO is small enough to be underestimated. Roughly the size of your thumbnail, it’s easy to dismiss the TiBO as something that’s too small to be useful… but it’s also a wildly inaccurate thing to do, because at just 21.5mm in length, the TiBO is the smallest multitool, packing a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and a prybar into its deceptively tiny footprint.Conceived in 2016, the TiBO went through its share of design iterations before it reached what it looks like today. Optimized ...

An easy-to-carry every-day-carry!

The KLIP is one of those EDC products that doesn’t try to take on too much. It does one thing and does it right. Made with a robust titanium body, the KLIP is a convenient little blade housed inside a compact pocket clip, allowing you to fasten it to your pocket or your belt. Its tiny size and portable nature make it not just an EDC but an EEDC (an easy-to-carry everyday carry).

The world’s smallest, most versatile multitool can sit on your fingertip

The first time you lay eyes on the Claw, it’s bafflingly small. What’s more baffling, however, is its incredibly vast feature list. It opens bottles and jars, unscrews screws, cuts open taped boxes, undoes staples, works as a flint-scraper, and acts as a tiny, nifty, jimmying tool. By design, it fits all those features into a frame that’s basically the size of your thumbnail, and by construction, it does so tirelessly, because the Claw is made entirely from titanium.At less than an inch long, ...

Nitecore NTK10: The X-acto knife’s bad-boy cousin

Nitecore makes some stunning flashlights, but ever so often, it makes some mean EDC gear too. Take for instance the NTK10, quite literally a mean piece of EDC, with its anthropomorphized bottle-opener that looks like the jaws of a vicious predator.Machined entirely from high-grade titanium, the NTK10 comes with an OLFA CKB-2 blade on the inside that makes for a perfect multi-purpose knife, with its long body and 30° slant, allowing you to use it for slicing, slashing, carving, piercing, and even...

The HM9 Flow is less of a watch and more of a time-telling kinetic sculpture

Clearly taking inspiration from the streamlined aerodynamic body of an airplane, the HM9 Flow by MB&F is a sheer pleasure to look at, with its unconventional, curvilinear body and luxury steampunk aesthetic.The movement within the HM9 Flow is developed in-house and is produced from 301 parts being manually-wound with 45 hours of power reserve. Three exhibition windows on the top give you a clear view of the enchanting movement of the twin balance wheels on each flank, accompanied by a planetary ...

Get Creative with Kohler Components

The “Components” of Kohler’s recent Components Faucet Collection are just that—three separate elements that users may select to create a customized kitchen fitting that suits individual preference. Users may choose from three spout styles, four varieties of handle, and four distinct finishes. Among the aforementioned, spouts include “Ribbon,” “Row,” and “Tube”—a timeless trio, each with a distinctive silhouette and a modern streamlined style.

This titanium multitool nails the basics

The James Brand was established for the pure reason that there are some problems that involve getting your hands dirty. Some solutions involve having the right tool on you and the Halifax was designed to be a solution to some pretty basic problems. Its simplistic design comes machined from a single titanium billet, and has a design that’s easy to hold, store, and even operate.The Halifax comes with three rather rudimentary functions that you’re bound to require a tool for. A flathead screwdriver...

An immortal titanium pencil for your immortal ideas

It’s been around for almost half a millennium now, and the pencil is still going strong. Even today, the most commonly used ones come with a graphite nib encased in wood, with the exception of the mechanical pencil, a much more recent innovation that allows you to extrude a graphite lead by clicking a button… but no matter how far we progress as a species, the humble pencil is always our go-to for ideating, sketching, scribbling, doodling, and noting. The Magno Ti turns that humble 500-year-ol...

This clever key-swapping system definitely feels like the future

MSTR’s Linx ensures that interchanging keys between keychains will never be a headache again. Linx’s rather creative key-swapping approach isn’t time-consuming, requiring you to slide out a key by wedging your thumbnail into the keyring and rotating the key for minutes before it comes out, only to repeat the process, in reverse, for putting the key back in. Relying on a system that uses positive and negative shapes (think: jigsaw puzzle, or key and keyhole), Linx allows you to simply slide the...

New Ford Focus Debuts, Arrives in U.S. Next Year

Lately, there hasn’t been much good news concerning small cars in the U.S. The segment has been losing ground to crossovers, leading Ford to decide not to bring its new Fiesta across the pond and GM to reportedly kill the Chevrolet Sonic later this year. But here’s one thing for small-car believers to get excited about: the all-new global Ford Focus will be coming stateside in 2019. The automaker is unveiling its next-gen compact today at simultaneous events in Europe and China, markets that wil...

These carabiner clips are made from a single titanium piece

It took Jeb Cheng quite a bit of trial and error (as you can see here), but after dozens of prototypes, he ultimately arrived at the perfect design for a single-piece carabiner made from titanium. A series of slanted cuts, spaced apart to provide a balance between flexibility and rigidity without breaking apart, are placed in the arm of the carabiner. A little pressure allows it to slide backwards (the cuts only give it flexibility in a single direction), giving you enough space to slip your key...

One Year After Epic, Callaway Goes Rogue with 3 New Drivers

I didn’t expect to write this story (no, not because Callaway hates me). My thinking was that Epic would spend another 6 months as Callaway’s flagship driver while a new XR would emerge to satisfy the market’s hunger for something new. Shows you what I know. According to Callaway, the XR platform doesn’t allow for a driver as capable as Epic. Ultimately that’s probably a cost argument. To do Epic things requires different materials (Triaxial Carbon instead of Titanium), and more complex manufa...

Many of us, I am sure, have received knives over time as gifts and hand me downs from friends and family. I have received several over the years, most of them eventually becoming lost, stolen, or eventually traded up for better knives.

This knife has become a staple in my kit after having used and abused it over and over. I have thrown it at boards leaned against wire fencing, only t...
