@dhunley1 if gary have no interest on it,i just might....pm me after @GaryMc give you an answer.
@dhunley1 Go ahead & PM @DSD, I've spent way too much this month already & have a big ticket item coming tomorrow.
Not a problem!
Same as many days! Love this Lenslight.
Please tell me more about that Swiss Army knife. I have never seen one as awesome as that before.
@Michael W. It is a Victorinox Spartan called "Lion of Lucerne" but I love the story behind the Lion of Lucerne and what this commemorates, from Wikipedia:
The Lion Monument (German: Löwendenkmal), or the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief in Lucerne, Switzerland designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris.
Mark Twain praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world."
Last flashlight order arrived last Friday...... Thrunite T10T. Really nice Titanium AA flashlight. In NW LED. Comes in a nice metal container and even includes an extra tail switch/clicky. Makes me wonder how cheap it must be lol
A Fall day carry.
Same one I carry most days lately, hard to get this one out of my pocket.
Same old same old, rarely leaves my pocket most days.
I know this is the "Flashlights and only Flashlights!" thread, but since you guys keep posting knives, I'm genuinely wondering why it appears that you guys are often carrying two knives...?
Or is that just for photo purposes?
@Espetar I always carry 2 knives and have for years, a large folder and a SAK most days on me, the Boker Camp knife is pretty much the same as a Victorinox Spartan SAK so it's a very good alternative. The SAK gets the most use by far as essentially a multi tool and on weekends sometimes I'll carry a Leatherman WAVE or Charge Ti in place of the SAK. I keep either a WAVE or Charge Ti with me always as well but usually in my daily EDC bag so I've usually actually got 3-4 knives with me most of the time with the 4th being a small fixed blade in an EDC bag. Sunday mornings going to Church is the only time I may carry only one knife and it's a SAK. My favorite SAKs are either an ALOX Harvester or a custom titanium one I bought, both with a pruning blade which to me is the handiest little utility blade I know of.
Reason goes back to a childhood spent in the Boy Scouts and the motto "Be Prepared", took it to heart and lived by that motto for 44 years now. Hope that helps answer your question and why.
I carry a big knife and a SAK with me at all times. This pretty much covers all of my cutting needs from hard stuff to food!
I like to carry a more robust folder with with a better steel for "tough" chores and a SAK for just about everything else. The Cadet disappears in those "useless" little jean pockets so I don't see a reason to not carry it. During the warm months, I tend to only carry one knife, a lot of the time.
Swapped out the MDX 16.5 head on my Malkoff MD2 for a 22.3 head. The bigger opening makes for a better beam, IMO. Makes the lens more susceptible to damage, but this thing is still a tank, so I can't imagine it being a problem. Still using the M361N drop-in and a high/low ring. Love this thing.
Did a little tint comparison for Wolfman Zach, and figured I would share here as well. All done with Malkoff M series drop-ins.
M61NL (neutral white 4000K 80 CRI) on the left, M61LL Nichia 219B V2 (neutral white 4000K 93 CRI) in the center, and M61LL (cool white 6200K) on the right.
Most people are used to cool white tints, which still light stuff up, but after trying neutral white and high CRI, it's hard to go back to using lights with cool white tints. Cool white looks very blue when you compare it to neutral white.
Thanks for the answers @GaryMc, @91bravo, and @dhunley1. Sitting at a desk most of every day never afforded me a reason to carry something bigger than the knife in my pocket.
Now, in my truck is a different matter...
You are welcome @Espetar
