Cutting carpet, drywall, nylon rope and asphalt shingles requires the right tool for the job; so does cutting, stripping and crimping wire for that matter. You can forget about those old utility knives with hard to grip holders and cheap blades that dull and break after only a couple uses, and forget about buying a separate wire stripping tool. The RAPID TOOLS RAPID SHARK Heavy-duty “BIG BITE” Combination Utility Knife is two tools in one, a utility knife and a wire cutter/stripper/crimper. It features rugged, professional-grade construction with a comfortable ergonomic grip. It uses RAPID TOOLS own patented RAPID EDGE serrated blades that are built to last. The blades withstand longer use because the cutting friction is handled by five individual cutting surfaces; other blades only have one straight edge. Slide’n’Lock technology allows you to adjust the amount of the blade that is exposed for precise cutting. Extra blades can be stored within the holder and a quick change design allows you to efficiently remove an old blade and replace it with a new one. When you’re ready to work with wire, a spring-loaded wire cutter opens easily and cuts comfortably, which locks securely into the body of the knife when your done. The precision ground stripping holes easily remove insulation from thick 6 to 12 gauge wires. Whether you’re a casual DIYer or a professional, this tool is a must-have for everyone; it will assist you in getting the job done faster, safer and easier. Read more

Hands on Research
If you are anything like me, you have to have music with you where ever you go. I listen to all different platforms of music from Classic Rock, Rock, Punk, Reggae, Pop, R&B, Hip Hop and Rap and have been using these headphones to enjoy all of them. The passive noise isolation offered by the STREET do a great job in keeping the music in (even when cranked up to 11) and the cluttered noise of the outside world out. The bass hits well and the voice of each artist I have listened to are very clear and smooth. Aesthetically, I prefer these headphones versus it’s competitors because they take a simple yet somewhat flashy approach. The STREET headphones come in a flat black or blue with gloss accents with a stylish S on each can. The head band and each ear can is lined with a very comfortable padding and covered with an extremely soft fabric. If you are as much of a fan of music as I am, you can’t go wrong with these headphones.
