Best Sunrise
Mel’s Crow’s Nest, Marblehead, Ohio 419-734-1742 Pull up a stool at the rectangular bar near the two garage-style glass doors and enjoy a Lake Erie Sunrise while you enjoy a Lake Erie sunset. The former is a rum drink with raspberry and banana juices, the latter a breathtaking spectacle. (Then again, the latter, with “sunset” capitalized, is also a rum drink, with strawberry and mango juices.) Outdoor Life Online Editor

Weatherby Vanguard Stainless Every fall when I head out West to hunt deer, almost by instinct I find myself reaching for this Weatherby Vanguard”” shown here topped with a Bushnell Elite 4200 1.5″”6×36 scope. And who could blame me? The Vanguard comes with a guarantee to put three shots within an inch and a half of one another at 100 yards with factory ammo. And when it’s chambered in .257 Weatherby, the undisputed king of the .25-caliber crowd and Roy Weatherby’s favorite cartridge, I know I’m ready for the long shots that are common when deer hunting in big country.

The Most Incredible Knife
Wenger wants you to do one thing: throw out your old knives. Actually, it wants you to do several things: throw out your bike tools, your toiletries, your laser pointer and so on, because you can find all of these instruments in a huge Swiss Army knife, which includes every tool the company makes. Wenger is calling the contraption “Giant Knife Version 1.0.” It debuted with all 85 features and can perform hundreds of functions. Who doesn’t need a cigar cutter next to a bicycle chain rivet setter next to a golf divot repair tool? Wenger is on to something with this everyman’s gadget. It wouldn’t be a knife, though, without a blade, so Wenger put seven in the line-up. And it wouldn’t be Swiss Army unless it came with tweezers and a toothpick. (They’re included, too.)
