Yeti Hopper 30 Soft-Sided Cooler Review

Kershaw Dividend Assisted Knife Review

The Kershaw Dividend is one of the newest folders from our friends at Kai USA – the company also responsible for Zero Tolerance knives. The Dividend will draw immediate comparisons to the Kershaw Leek. Generally speaking, it’s a pretty good comparison with only marginally larger sizing.

There have been several innovation changes in hole saw technology when it comes to the mandrel.
