StatGear Hygiene Hand

Now more than ever it’s important to avoid touching high-contact surfaces like door handles, elevator buttons, and payment terminals with your bare hands. That’s because all it takes is accidentally touching your face to put you at risk of infection. And access to hand sanitizer or a hand washing station can be limited in these trying times. The team at StatGear knows this firsthand as they’re based in New York City, an area hit especially hard by the coronavirus outbreak. That’s why they’re returning to Kickstarter with their latest creation, the Hygiene Hand. It’s a clever keychain solution that can help you handle high-contact surfaces while minimizing exposure to germs and viruses. If you’re looking for ways to switch up your EDC to protect yourself and others while practicing social distancing and quarantining, adding the StatGear Hygiene Hand to your kit can come in, well, handy.

StatGear has a long history of developing and delivering quality EDC products via crowdfunding, and their new Hygiene Hand was developed as a result of their company being located right at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in New York City. The StatGear Hygiene Hand is a keychain tool made out of brass, which is inherently antimicrobial unlike other materials like stainless steel where viruses can thrive for days on end. You should still wash the tool, and your hands, thoroughly after use because it’s not an end-all and be-all solution to prevent you from getting sick.

But with the hook design of the Hygiene Hand, you can at least avoid direct contact with door handles and call buttons. And because the tool has a stylus tip, you can use it on touchscreens like on ATM and point of sale terminals when you have to go out to run errands for yourself and the ones you love. The StatGear Hygiene Hand’s utility isn’t just limited to a pandemic situation, either. You can keep it with you for the years to come when you just don’t want to touch surfaces in grimy situations. And because the brass composition of the tool will develop an attractive patina over time, you can see it as a memento to remind yourself that you got through such a momentous time in human history by having the right everyday carry tools on hand.

To secure a Hygiene Hand for yourself today, you can make a pledge to StatGear’s fully-funded Kickstarter today at the link below.

Ardor & Forge Rothrock Collection

Ardor & Forge Rothrock Collection

As much as our gear is often industrial, mechanical, and produced from cold materials, it’s always nice when a product comes along that gets us back in touch with nature. Inspired by Rothrock State Forest in Central Pennsylvania, Ardor & Forge brings us a set of watches that reflect the natural spaces they were created in. The collection features four watches, designed with a common aesthetic, but each with its own distinct features. It’s a solid set of adventure-inspired watches, built to last and ready to join you off the beaten path.

Each Rothrock watch features a unique sand-cast texture on the case, something not yet seen in the watch world. The resulting look is rugged, with the case material able to hide those inevitable bumps, nicks, and scratches that happen during everyday wear. Inside the 42mm textured case, you’ll find a reliable NH35 Japanese automatic watch movement. Thanks to the screw down crown and case design, the watch is water resistant to 10ATM (100m/330ft.), more than enough for excursions both on and below the water. Ardor & Forge went the extra mile by adding real oak to the winding rotor, visible through the sapphire display caseback on the underside of the watch.

The Rothrock also has oak accents on the crown end and in the rehaut, running around the outside of the dial; a subtle detail made of natural material that reminds you of the outdoors whenever you need to check the time. On the dial, you’ll find a highly legible 12-hour scale, rendered in Super-LumiNova for visibility even in the darkest of conditions. The Rothrock is available in four colorways. The Seeger features a raw stainless steel case with deep blue dial, the Detweiler is housed in a vintage gold PVD case with olive green dial, the Thickhead has a black DLC case with black dial, and the Juniata features a raw stainless steel case with a fully lumed white dial, giving it a stunning effect in low light. Drilled lugs and double lug holes make it quick and easy to change up the strap too, adding to their versatility.

The Ardor & Forge Rothrock collection is currently available on Kickstarter, and backers have plenty of time to pick out their choice of watch. Prices start at $300 for early bird pledges, saving a decent chunk of change from the final retail price of $550 when the watches ship in August.

A portion of sales go to support the Pennsylvania Parks & Forests Foundation, so you’re supporting conservation of the great outdoors by picking up a watch inspired by them. Learn even more about the Ardor & Forge Rothrock collection and pick one up for yourself at the link below.

Trending: Grim Workshop Jordan Jonas Signature Card

Card-type multi-tools are a great way to carry extra EDC functionality in a space you may not be using in your wallet. If you’re looking to add one to yours, Grim Workshop makes robust tool cards with input from outdoor experts for their Signature Card line, and this time they’ve partnered with expert survivalist Jordan Jonas for his namesake model. The Grim Workshop Jordan Jonas Signature Card features nine different outdoor and survival-centric functions that you can easily pack it in your wallet, or compact survival tin.

This hardened stainless steel survival card features an arrowhead tip that you can use as a spike to enhance a deadfall trap for catching small game, which you can make with the included Paiute trigger and trap assembly. Two small hook-and-lure combos and four slightly larger hooks ensure you’re stocked for fishing, and a net weaving shuttle lets you sew and mend your net in a pinch. It holds an awl for leatherworking and a sewing needle for some quick repairs, and also includes the small but useful Sharpener Card for light field maintenance of your tools and blades. If you’re looking to pack this kind of functionality in a card that takes up the exact space as a standard credit card, check out Wallet Wednesday’s survival multi-tool card at the link below.
