    Automatic knives, valid for use?

    I think with all knives, they have a purpose. You wouldn’t take a penlight when you needed a searchlight but if it’s all you have, it’s what you end up using. Does one NEED a full auto knife vs. a nail nick slip joint? Maybe, maybe not. There will be very little fidgeting with a nail nick slip...

    Automatic knives, valid for use?

    Photos? Would love to see the gravity knife… heard of it many times, never seen one.

    Automatic knives, valid for use?

    Autos can be gimmicky but it depends on what you buy. Benchmade makes a number of very good autos as well as OTF’s. I own one of each and I’ve been pretty happy with them. That being said, an axis lock can be had for cheaper and with a little practice they can be open and shut just as fast in my...

    Opinions needed: "keychain light" size?

    Yes, photon lights are still around. Bought 1 recently to use on a watchband. Got the mount and specific bands from gearward. https://gearward.com/products/watch-flashlight

    Opinions needed: "keychain light" size?

    I have 4 keychain lights that I regularly carry. My neck carry light (probably my MOST carried light as I only take it off when I shower or swim) is my steel Veleno Designs Quantum D2. It’s size and feature set make it IMO the ultimate neck-carry light, the light you have “when all other lights...

    How do you keep your kitchen knife sharp?

    I think the consensus I’m seeing is that the way to keep your kitchen knives sharp is not to let the wives use them. I have the same problem… my wife uses the kitchen knives like they’re a utility (throw away) blade. If I want anything to stay not ruined, I have to hide it. <sigh>

    How do you keep your kitchen knife sharp?

    +1 for me too. I use the Spyderco Sharpmaker when I’m in a hurry and just need it “good enough” and I have an EdgePro for the times when I want the kitchen knives hair popping sharp.

    Need Recommendation for a multi purpose rechargeable flashlight for home

    I’ll second (or 3rd?) the recommendation for the Maelstrom MXS Standby… I love mine and use it for walking the dog as well as similar uses you’re looking for.

    What do you use a flashlight for the most?

    Let’s see… navigating around the house at night. Reading to my daughter before she goes to sleep in bed. Looking in the storage cabinets in the garage. Walking the dog at night. Checking under the bed. Looking inside small canisters to see if anything is left. Finding food/parts on the floor...

    Zebralight H600Fc Mk IV - First Impressions

    From an old post but wondering if anyone has a link for a better holder (Armytek?) than the silicone holder that ZL ships with it's lights? I'm looking to upgrade to a H604c from my old ZL (can't even remember the model... long discontinued) and I never loved the silicone holder as it would slip...

    Help me pick a FL for a gift to an art expert

    Because of this thread, I ended up ordering a RovyVon Aurora A8x and one of their nice looking Ti Carabiners as well. Just today I gave my son my Fenix E03r (bought him one about a year ago and he ruined in running it through the washing machine). I bought 2 when I bought it for him and ended up...
