BilletSPIN Thunderstorm Titanium Soul Pen Review

I have handled one BilletSPIN pen before and was impressed with it.  It was a heavy copy though – stainless and brass.  I love those two metals, but for a daily driving pen, I tend toward something lighter.  This answers that request – it’s titanium!  Also the clip is updated…. otherwise very similar pens.  Read on for more pics and thoughts!

Rover Camel Ta6132 Keychain Flashlight Review

There’s a new titanium keychain light on the market, by a brand you probably haven’t heard of.  This is the Rover Camel Ta6132, and it’s a pretty well featured little light, that also happens to be keychain size.  Read on for some testing and thoughts!

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.

MecArmy GP1 Fidget Spinner Review

I once saw MecArmy as a flashlight company.  The more I see their Facebook and Instagram posts, the more I realize they’re actually a gadget company.  That’s certainly the case with the item I have in my hand today – the MecArmy GP1 fidget spinner.  Appointed with anodized titanium, and very fidgety….  Read on for some thoughts and pics!

Custom ReyLight Gemini with Crescendo UI Flashlight Review

My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own.  It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini.  Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom.  So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo.  Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!

Acebeam K75 Flashlight Review

Going Gear, the great store in Georgia sent me a light I’ve been itching to get my hands on…  The Acebeam K75 – I’m sure you’ve heard of it, or if you’ve looked out your door at night you’ve probably seen me shining mine up into the air.  This is a 18650×4 dedicated thrower with a Luminus SBT-90 Gen2, an uncommon emitter.  Read on for some thoughts and testing!

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.

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!
