Finally, A Stealthy Smokeable Multitool For The Pothead In Your Platoon
The Swiss Army Knife is likely the most recognizable multitool in human history. Sure, it may not be as functional as the Gerber MP600 that’s standard issue for American soldiers or as daunting as the Chinese military shovel, but the legendary pocketknife is a necessity for opening MREs, cutting 550 cord, and a billion other small tasks that may arise on the battlefield. It cuts, it clamps, it screws and it tweezes — it won’t save your life, but it’ll make life a hell of a lot easier.
But there’s one thing the standard Swiss Army Knife doesn’t do: Get you high as balls.
That’s where the High Knife comes in. Designed by Georgiana Weddington, the custom-made marijuana pipe is designed to invoke the versatility and retro feel of the class Swiss Army Knife.

“When alcohol Prohibition ended in 1933, America saw the advent of high end design in all manner of cocktail shakers, glasses, swizzle sticks and bar accessories,” High Knife explains on its website. “The 21st century will similarly see a new era of prohibition ending and the creation of equally creative accessories. While utilitarian implements will always have a place in the market, the new-found freedom will inspire people to seek more elegant solutions.”
Forget the aesthetics — this bad boy may be the perfect combination of functionality and discretion, a quick and easy way to sneak in a toke during your down time rather than hiding from your spouse. Plus, they’re relatively cheap at a mere $50 at High Knife’s website.
If you’re going to blaze on a bivouac, you might as well get something out of it other than the munchies.
New London — Retired four-star general John Kelly said that as President Donald Trump's chief of staff, he pushed back against the proposal to deploy U.S. troops to the southern border, arguing at the time that active-duty U.S. military personnel typically don't deploy or operate domestically.
"We don't like it," Kelly said in remarks at the Coast Guard Academy on Thursday night. "We see that as someone else's job meaning law enforcement."
These 'kamikaze' drones are believed to be the culprits of the attacks on 2 Saudi oil fields. Here's what we know about them
Editor's Note: This article originally appeared on Business Insider.
Yemen's Houthi rebel group, part of a regional network of militants backed by Iran, claims to be behind the drone strikes on two Saudi oil facilities that have the potential to disrupt global oil supplies.
A report from the United Nations Security Council published in January suggests that Houthi forces have obtained more powerful drone weaponry than what was previously available to them, and that the newer drones have the capability to travel greater distances and inflict more harm.
The U.S. Air Force has selected two companies to make an extreme cold-weather boot for pilots as part of a long-term effort to better protect aviators from frostbite in emergencies.
In August the service awarded a contract worth up to $4.75 million to be split between Propel LLC and the Belleville Boot Company for boots designed keep pilots' feet warm in temperatures as low as -20 Fahrenheit without the bulk of existing extreme cold weather boots, according to Debra McLean, acquisition program manager for Clothing & Textiles Domain at Air Force Life Cycle Management Command's Agile Combat Support/Human Systems Division.
DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran rejected accusations by the United States that it was behind attacks on Saudi oil plants that risk disrupting world energy supplies and warned on Sunday that U.S. bases and aircraft carriers in the region were in range of its missiles.
Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for Saturday's attacks that knocked out more than half of Saudi oil output or more than 5% of global supply, but U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the assault was the work of Iran, a Houthi ally.
Nearly a decade after he allegedly murdered an unarmed Afghan civilian during a 2010 deployment, the case of Army Maj. Matthew Golsteyn is finally going to trial.
