    How do you keep your kitchen knife sharp?

    I they are smooth then a stone unless they get in need of extreme work then an electric sharpener. Axes are good to practice on with the stone because they have a lot of extra material to allow fixing boo boos. https://chefschoice.com/collections/electric-knife-sharpeners

    Cost no object best rechargeable headlamp for hiking?

    Nothing hard about carrying a few extra batteries in the napsack. That would make a world of choices available.

    Zebra H600Fc Soft Brick

    I got a bit of a directed exercise trying fresh and different batteries as well as "cooling" the light before an RMA was issued; Nothing was required about cleaning contacts. Thinking about that, it was brand new out of the box so what's up with cleaning contacts? If you get an RMA prepare for...

    Zebra H600Fc Soft Brick

    I just got a replacement H600Fd mk IV but I haven't tested it yet. The original one had a tendency to dim itself down within minutes of being turned on, and that was at less than after a dozen uses from new. It's troubling that it takes a couple months to get a returned item looked at and...

    Weather/AM/FM radio

    When we get a tropical storm or severe thunderstorms cell service goes out with the power. It's happening more and more in the Northeast.

    Weather/AM/FM radio

    I have a hand crank radio and it leaves much to be desired, so much so that it is never used. If I were looking I'd go for a battery priority model.

    darkest place you have ever been?

    A Black Hole.....mile long abandoned railroad tunnel. In the middle, light is litterally swallowed up and there is no sign of light at the ends. Pretty spooky place.

    Rechargable Flashlight for Rural Yard Use?

    Thanks but both are too small. We have a tendency to misplace things if they don't stand out.

    Rechargable Flashlight for Rural Yard Use?

    Thanks for that. That is exactly why my ZebraLight head light is not useful for that use. It is very nearsighted, but that is what makes it great in the garage repairing things.

    Only need a range of 200 feet and don't need to over do it.

    Rechargable Flashlight for Rural Yard Use?

    The writeup says it is porentially dangerous to eyes, so it doesn't fit my needs for tracking the dogs.

    Rechargable Flashlight for Rural Yard Use?

    Looking for suggestions for an LED flashlight using single 18650 battery for use in our wooded yard to put the dogs out and check on wildlife. We have a Strion LED which is a good size but I have quite a few 18650 batteries for a ZebraLight headlamp that I would like to put to additional use...

    Zebralight H600Fc Mk IV - First Impressions

    I recently got the H600Fd Mk IV after a bit of a backorder wait and so far I'm not favorably impressed. My light dims itself down significantly from high after 25 minutes from a fully charged battery. It doesn't like to operate on high when the battery is under 4 volts and dims almost...

    Painting Anodized Streamlight Body?

    As far as painting, Streamlight didn't know how to prep or paint the body. Not an inspiring testimony.

    Painting Anodized Streamlight Body?

    It's beginning to sound like I should bite the bullet and just buy the "pink breast cancer support" version of the Strion to get a noticeable color.

    Painting Anodized Streamlight Body?

    I have never had that kind of luck. It always takes aluminum or "semichrome" polish and a lot of elbow grease, and even then it's hit or miss getting into the nooks. I wonder about the Stiron with all the cooling grooves on the handhold area; that might never be polishable unless something like...

    Painting Anodized Streamlight Body?

    I am assuming that you don't own a motorcycle with aluminum engine and transmission covers. Even if they are polished, they eventually oxidize and get dull.
