Imalent DM21C Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that I’ve sort of already reviewed before…. at first glance.  The DM21C looks like a big version of the LD10, but is not really.  This is an 18650 light, and the cell can be removed.  Everything needed is included, and it has two switches.  Read on for more!

Southern Grind Spider Monkey GLOW Series Black PVD Carbon Fiber Folding Knife Review

One of the bonuses working with Going Gear again comes in the fact that they are knife nuts.  See their newest video for more proof of that.  What’s better for me is that they’ve sent me a cool knife to handle, too.  This is the (long name warning) Southern Grind Spider Monkey.  It’s part of the GLOW series, and the blade is black PVD.  The scales are Carbon Fiber.  And they glow!  Just a lot going on in this knife… read on for more – but mostly carry on because there are a bunch of photos!!

Convoy 4X18A Flashlight Review

Convoy released a big light!  A 4-cell can (ish) style light capable of big output while retaining the ability to throw quite a bit.  It’s an interesting light, and adds the feature of USB-C charging!

Lumintop FW1A Pro Flashlight Review

There was a point where I’d have said the FW series of Lumintop lights was played out (or “overdone.”)  I’d have said the FW1A Pro was unnecessary.  …. A 18650 light with Andúril, a Cree XHP50.2 under a reflector – what’s the point?….   You’ll have to read on to see what I think after having it. 😀

Imalent LD10 Flashlight Review

Imalent, maker of one of my favorite lights (the DX80) recently sent me this new LD10 light, which has one of my favorite emitters (Cree XP-L HI).  It’s a neat little light, but let’s test it out, shall we?

Deadwood Huckleberry Topo Flashlight Review

It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single.  I jumped on that.  This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later.  Read on!

FocusWorks Axis Micro Mini (Stonewashed Bronze) Fidget Spinner Review

I reviewed and enjoyed the FocusWorks Eryx, and Jordy makes many other fidgety things. I got interested in this spinner, so I purchased this Axis Micro Mini, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.

RovyVon A29 Brass Flashlight Review

Another RovyVon!  This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself.  That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version.  The A29, brass of course.

RovyVon A28 Flashlight Review

I find no better way to start 2020 than with a post about a RovyVon light.  RovyVon was huge for me in 2019, and I have this post and more upcoming from them.  This is the A28, a clear body light which has two secondary emitters – red and UV.

Nitecore TIKI Keychain Flashlight Review

What can I say about the TIKI that I haven’t already said about the RovyVon Aurora series.  We should get this discussion out of the way at the start:  version one of the Aurora, which was released maybe a year and a half ago, and this TIKI/TIKI LE are basically the same.  I asked Nitecore about this specifically, and they declined to respond.  I asked RovyVon about this specifically and they were very clear that this was in no way whatsoever a collaboration in any format.
