          So here we have a 'Fixed' blade 'Compact Folding Utility Knife', by fixed we refer to the blade lock at a fixed length when open. Some nice features; a press to unlock the flip open or close, Belt Clip, Lanyard Hole, 'Metal Extension to Prevent Accidental Blade Removal' and my favorite is it's folded 'Compact Size' so I can just slip into my pocket. From here it's like any other utility knife to use, and I use them for cutting boxes down, package opening, projects cutting wood to plastics and so much more.

          Strength and durability make Razor-Back tools the choice of professionals. This lightweight aluminum scoop is perfect for moving and scooping grain, seed, feed, fertilizers and other granulated materials. It's also a useful and versatile garden tool sturdy enough for general clean-up or for moving mulch, sand or soil.

          One more great tool from 'Razor-Back' added to my tool shed, lightweight and perfectly balanced for moving and scooping, well the sky the limit here. Our main use is for the tons of Pine Needles we pile up during the year from all the trees here in the northwest, tons of them. Being of aluminum for the blade and the hardwood handle we can leave it in a handy area without the corrosion. the "'D-grip' handle provides leverage and control and what helps make this a ture 'Razor-Back' Great. Add one to your tool collection, you won't be sorry.
          Pros: Durable, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Multi Use, Strong

          Right to it, here a 5ml (6ml in fingers) that pass my test as I normally ware M-L size, but have some task I need them shin tight. Not only did they pull on without ripping open in the palm, I finished my task and off they came all in one piece. "Premium, industrial-grade gloves are more than 50% thicker than standard nitrile, for added durability." Simply stated and I whole heartily agree with there textured fingertips that gripped even wet, makes for a tough and sensitive glove. They comply with FDA Regulations for Food Contact so cutting those hot peppers are fair game, but here not for medical use. Chemical resistance for a variety of industries use's.

          Native Soil is a natural fertilizer made from nutrient-rich organic waste products that are sustainably-sourced and sold in the United States. A unique blend of powdered algae and kelp, dehydrated beer grains, sterilized municipal waste and food scraps creates a high quality, sustainable product that improves your soil and helps your plants really pop. Plants need a handful of specific nutrients to thrive things like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. While most fertilizers provide these basic nutrients, Native Soil goes even further to provide organic matter and carbon. Its a synthetic-free, all-in-1 solution for a bountiful yield, week-after-week of the entire growing season. USES: Fertilize new and existing plants, mix into your soil as a conditioner, mix into your compost or run it through your hydroponic system (drip irrigation is not recommended unless you have a good filter). Your tomatoes, fruit trees, flowers, hemp and grasses will bloom longer, stronger and with superior flavor.

          As far being a " GREEN' product we give this as an excellent quality mark. And as winter sets in here in the northwest the fall feeding of our potted plants is upon us and come spring we see healthier plants based on the 'Analysis' ratios and past experience with all natural (organic) products.

          Answer: 
          It's is rated for inside use (safe), but you "MUST' keep the clearance's from the front of it's heat output and this is a burning flame. I would think that a tent would be out of the question unless it's one of the big ones, 10x10 big, and many of the nylon melts and burns easily.
           
          The FLEXVOLT 12.0 Ah Battery provides up to 8X runtime in 20-Volt MAX and delivers ultimate power in 60-Volt MAX and 120-Volt MAX cordless tools. It changes voltage when you go from 20-Volt MAX to 60-Volt MAX tools. Lithium Ion technology delivers performance in the same size as our 9.0 Ah Battery, so it is more powerful in as compact a package as possible. It also includes a built-in LED Fuel Gauge for instant charge status, and is compatible with all 20-Volt MAX tools and chargers.

          Answer: 
          In short, Ah (Amp Hours) is a rating of how long a battery will last before needing recharged, i.e. 6Ah will last 90 minutes in a weed-eater, the same 12 Ah would last twice as long. Take this a simply example as many factors (load, use and condition) play a role.
