The Tekto Krawler
Tekto Gear’s knives are some of the most reliable, highly-functional blades out there. And the Krawler fits right into that mold.
Discrete and easy to use, this automatic knife features a chrome steel blade that’s as striking as it is sharp. The blade length measures 3.4 inches and is paired with an aviation aluminum alloy/sandpaper peel handle that is transparent on one side. This allows for an internal view into the automatic mechanism in action. It also sports a tungsten glass breaker, should you ever find yourself in need of one. And with the discount code GP20, you can snag the Krawler for 20 percent off.
Note: Owning and carrying an automatic knife isn’t legal in every state due to the Federal Switchblade Act. You can check how the law works in your state here.
Zwilling Kitchen Knives
Save Up to 65% These knives, for the most part, are ugly. That is to say they’ve been marked as “visually imperfect” and thus sold way below the SRP. Zwilling assures that this won’t be a problem: “Product may have minor visual imperfections or a damaged box. Though this will not affect the product’s performance.” A whole host of blade sizes and styles are available in the clearance area, and we’ve picked some of the best below.
Italian-Made Clarks Desert Boots
Save 58%:Like many shoe brands, UK-based brand Clarks moved its manufacturing overseas in the mid-aughts. For over a decade, the brand’s iconic Desert Boots were made in countries including Vietnam and India, but recently the brand has focused on bringing production back to Europe. While Clarks is now manufacturing again in the UK, it is also building high-end versions of a few styles in Italy. You can pick up a pair of these Italian-made Desert Boots right now at Nordstrom Rack for only $80. That’s 58 percent lower than list price and $50 less than the brand’s entry-level Desert Boots — hard to argue with that. — John Zientek
