MecArmy X7S multifunction EDC

During my trip to SHOT 18 earlier this year I spent quite a bit of time trying to find products and companies that might interest GnZ readers. One of the Exhibitors that caught my eye was a new name to me – MecArmy. They had some beautifully crafted EDC items which were drawing admiration and……


Nextorch – Three products I cannot do without..

I have used quite a lot of lighting options over the years. From night fishing, camping, hunting and the standard winter evening dog walks I have always had a need for decent illumination. In mid 2017 I picked up some new products from Nextorch which I liked and planned to review and they have since……


Florian Vorax fixed blade

I was looking through some popular models from the Blade 2017 show and happened across the Florian Vorax.

Scope mounts are probably everyones least favourite subject. Unless you are Nerdy.. I am. I wrote a whole article on Torque settings entitled “Lets talk about Torque”. It surprised me that popular demand hasn’t prompted the sequel “Look who’s torqueing”.. Anyway I digress.. Scope mounts…. We all spend a hell of a lot of money……


When beauty meets beast – OKC Cerberus folder

Every so often an item catches my eye simply because it looks stunning. This was the case with the new OKC Cerberus folding knife. While scanning through models destined for Blade show 2017 I stumbled across the Cerberus and was keen to see if the function lived up to the form.

Lansky Professional Sharpening System – It Works!

So I have a confession to make.. despite owning lots of knives I have always struggled to get them consistently sharp.. Sometimes I got lucky and other times they ended up blunter than they were before.. The struggle is real! It turns out I am not alone. A lot of guys I speak to have……
