It's been years since I've camped, and let's face it, I may be better suited to glamping than camping, what with my love of being warm and dry. Still, I own a few things that make me feel like I could camp at a moment's notice: a German paring knife in a cool sheath, a tiny Maglite, and some waterproof matches. Now all I need is this sure-to-impress two-in-one camping essential...

Part of the AUM_Canvas line by Red Flag Designs of Vancouver, BC, the combination tent peg/bottle opener "brings together two of Canada's favorite pastimes: camping and drinking beer". Red Flag Design makes beautiful objects from military surplus, and to make this one, they simply applied a handsaw to a surplus tent peg. As they assure us, "Still works as a tent peg." Awesome. Now I just need to figure out how to use a tent peg.
