Fenix E30R Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix.  It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit.  It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light.  The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light.  (So I already expect to like it!)

Nite Ize DoohicKey Key Chain Knife Review

I’m a flashlight guy, no secret, but any time I have a light on my person, I also have a knife.  But I’m not a typical knife guy – I strongly prefer really small knives.  It’s a never ending quest.  I saw this little guy and knew I had to have it.  This Nite Ize DoohicKey knife isn’t the perfect knife for me, but it’s the one that I’ve carried for months now.
