Wish I would have seen something like that 8 months ago when I bought mine.
SOG FastHawk + Shovel $40 @ Woot
The crimpers are great at adjusting laser beams on sharks too!
Now that's funny...
A better but much heavier solar oven for $189:

These sites sell tsa confiscated tools, knives. Listed on ebay. I have purchased dozens of the items at 1/3 to 1/2 of the retail prices. Today, I picked up another couple of benchmade knives.
I give the tools and knives as gifts to relatives. I want to make sure that they will have them in the car, at home and at the office, if working. If shtf and I happen to be nearby, then I have backup items already in place.
To go with the new ar mags, www.force-products.com has good 5.11 "stacked double" four-mag carriers for $13.99; cheaper than I've seen anywhere. Can be had in black or "dark earth" which I already have (and which looks suspiciously like "tan" to me ).
Typically these run $24-$30, or at least used to.
Sounds like a really good price. How are they on shipping?
See this is what usually kills good deals...this is why I'm particularly attracted to good deals with FREE shipping...
Army sleep system at Amazon new for $149:
Link to bag
thats the same MSS i use in my bag. if you live closer to an army base, they are considerably cheaper. i got mine by purchasing a marine corps combat tent at an auction for $6 and then trading that for the MSS. can find them all day long here for 100-125.
it is a good system though, and if you dont have any other resource, i'd say its definately worth the money.
This thread is great except for.....
the fact that I keep buying stuff listed here.
Shipping was $16.46 - came out to $58.43 total for three, or $19.48 apiece with shipping factored in. Most places I found them run $10 or so higher apiece once shipping is applied.
I really like this particular pouch and discovered it completely by accident when some online store had them on special for something like $8 a while back. At the time, I ordered just one out of curiosity & now wish I'd ordered more at that price...
$119.00 at Woot

Can you clarify the web links to those sites? I wasn't able to get to them
Click on this link to Woot.
Woot sells one item each day until it is sold out. They sometimes have good deals, sometimes not so good.
You sign into ebay. Then pick an item like "used leathermen auctions".
After a while, the names of TSA confiscated item vendors start to show up. With ebay, you cannot look up a specific merchant directly.
This is the way I found tsa confiscated items. I have picked up many dozens of confiscated knives and tools in this fashion. In the last year, the pricing of the seized leatherman tools has jumped about 30%. The two merchants that I indicated are honest and are selling items confiscated at the airport (most people who carry the brand name knives and tools don't carry broken ones).
I received a Mel Pardue benchmade and an Ontario folder yesterday, cleaned them up, and put them back in the sealable plastic baggies.
Here are a few problems. 1. most retail stores do not carry used tools that are still functionl and slightly scratched. 2. most retail stores carry cheap quality knives at full retail prices. If you want a decent used knife to put in the car (where it might get ruined), to put in a fishing equipment box, in the pocket of a knock-about windbreaker, or to park with a relative, where do you get it?
You know the little, Swiss Victoronix knives that sell for $8 on sale at the retail store? You can buy 10 for about $20 plus shipping as tsa confiscated items. I bought a bunch and gave them to relatives. I buy the more functional items for myself and shtf.
Just bought a midsized Leatherman at Academy for $29.99, normally $49.99. It's the step below the Wave

This is a Wenzel 10' X 18' two room tent with everything for $69.
It's Woot so today only.
