But in a camp setting, where it will get used dozens of times a day, in higher-stress applications? I’m pretty much hooked on my Morakniv Craftline Pro S Allround fixed blade. Read our Morakniv Pro S fixed blade knife review to find out why!
Since getting back into cycling a couple of years ago, I’ve been spending much more time on two wheels. I finally determined it was appropriate to get a new helmet to match my dedication.
My previous bike helmet lasted me almost 10 years. I intended my next one to last me the same – barring, God forbid, any accidents.
After much research, I decided on the Giro Savant MIPS helmet. Continue reading our Giro Savant MIPS helmet review below!
Beckett Simonon is really starting to collect a formidable gallery of made-to-order dress shoes. Their latest (at least for me) is the wholecut Valencia oxford. Check out our Beckett Simonon Valencia wholecut oxfords review below!

Now that summer is kicking into full gear, I’ve been logging more miles on the bike. In addition to the Poseidon Triton review I posted recently, I also have a new Poseidon Atlas review for you too!
While I’ve been strictly road biking for the last few years, Poseidon hooked me up with their hybrid bike, the Atlas, to take for a spin.
The Atlas offers a totally different, but fun new experience. Check out our Poseidon Atlas review below!
Summer is coming, and you know what that means… camping!
While it’s always a good idea to carry a knife on you at all times as part of your everyday carry, spending time on the trail this Memorial Day gives you all the more reason to start packing a blade.
We recently reviewed the Kershaw Skyline knife, which we contend is an excellent choice for EDC. The Kershaw Cryo 1555TI, while very different, also makes a great option, especially for first-timers. Check out our Kershaw Cryo review below!
Since then, Poseidon updated their bike with improved geometry and expanded colors while still retaining their value pricing. We were finally able to grab one for road testing. Check out our full Poseidon Triton review below!
For cyclists, a bike computer not only tracks your route, but compiles ride data to help you train and improve.
Unfortunately, a basic Garmin costs upwards of a hundred bucks – even more if it performs anything beyond rudimentary tasks. For the budget-conscious layperson, it can be hard to justify that expense for an activity that is supposed to be, you know, free.
A company called Bryton offers much less expensive GPS bike computers than the big-name competition. But are they any good? Check out our Bryton Rider 310 review below!
I recently received a pair of “The Owen” oxford dress shoes from a newly-launched company, Owen Edward.
The business model and approach behind the company are just the kind of thing we like at PRAKTICALA, so I was happy to take a closer look. Read our Owen Edward oxford dress shoe review below!
PRAKTICALA is excited to announce its latest venture, a Bakersfield real estate investment property!
We picked up this property in downtown Bakersfield, CA, late last year. It had great bones and a fantastic floor plan, but was in serious need of updating and repairs. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to combine my passion for DIY projects and my jack-of-all-trades disposition.
Fast forward a few months, and the project is up and ready for sale!
The transformation is incredible. Check out more photos below!
My current ride is a legit Motobecane LeChampion CF, but not every cyclist is serious enough (yet) to drop a grand (or more) on a bike. The very cool Poseidon bike, which I reviewed here, is one alternative. (EDIT: I’ve also reviewed the Poseidon Triton, their updated road bike.)
I recently obtained an even more affordable bike, the Dawes Lightning DLX. While not flashy by any means, this solid road bike provides excellent bang for buck as either a casual ride or an entry into the world of road biking. Read the full Dawes Lightning DLX review below!
