BilletSpin Firefly Mini Top Review

I have one last item from BilletSpin for review – kinda disappointed, I have really enjoyed these items!  This is an out-of-production top called the Firefly.  It’s smallish, and great for travel use.

Nitecore F4 Powerbank/Charger Review

I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands.  Well not right now; I’m typing right now.  Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?  

Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with.  Read on for some thoughts!

BilletSpin Polished and Flamed Titanium Whistle Review

My next item from Billetspin is not a top!  It’s a whistle.  This is a newish market for Billetspin, but they have a bunch of products in the category.  They’re very pretty pieces, but also functional whistles!  Read on for more.

MechForce Tactical Suppressor Turbo Flashlight Review

Since my early days of talking to Mechforce about flashlights, they mentioned doing this 21700 light.  I talked to them a bunch about it but more than anything, I think they took comments (including many of mine specifically) about the MechTorch to heart.  They’ve just released this 21700 light, named the Tactical Suppressor – basically a [Hot Rod in the Turbo format] tube 21700 light.  Read on for testing!

BilletSpin “The Vanguard” Top Review

BilletSpin has released a new top.  It’s named “The Vanguard” and they were kind enough to send one my way.  It’s gorgeous, too – a 3-color Mokume / Flamed Titanium top, with a Ruby sphere atop the stem.  Truly a stunning top.

BilletSpin Xeno Stainless Steel and Bronze Top Review

Along with the Soul Pen BilletSpin sent a while back, they graciously sent this Xeno bronze and stainless top.  I have had tops before – the Lambda from Dark Sucks, for example, so I’m glad to have a look at this one!

Astrolux TP01 Pen Review

I’ve had a couple of pens in for review lately, and that’s been great!  I write a fair bit for work, so it’s been nice to have something other than my custom Bic Clic Stic pen.  This is the Astrolux TP01, a titanium body light which fits the Parker style refill.  Read on for more!

Nitecore NTK05 Knife Review

Today I have in my hands a … knife… from Nitecore.  It’s an unusual device, so calling it a knife might be a bit of a misnomer, because it’s most usual use case will likely not be … knifing.  What it essentially is, is a titanium scalpel handle.  Read on for more photos and a few thoughts!
