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!

Amutorch X9 Flashlight Review

One of a few lights I recently received from NealsGadgets was another Amutorch.  A triple, but an unusual one – it’s a 26650 cell, broad head triple with an indicating switch, and on-board charging.

FocusWorks Eryx F1 Flashlight Review

Today I have a special light.  This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight.  And it’s unusual.  Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light.  It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days.  I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!

Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight Review

I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself.  So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates.  I was excited to snag it, but you don’t have to get these that way.  There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion.  This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.

Klarus Mi1C Titanium Flashlight Review

I knew when I reviewed the Klarus Mi1C aspheric that I wanted to review these ‘nicer metal’ versions with the reflector.  FastTech send this titanium version, and I’m pleased to put it through the paces!

Lumintop IYP365 Pen Flashlight Review

What I have today is another Lumintop, in a long line of Lumintop reviews.  This is one I’ve been excited about, because it’s Nichia and brass.  Unfortunately, Lumintop didn’t want to send brass or titanium, but I’m not going to hold that against them. 🙂  Here’s the Lumintop IYP365 in aluminum, with a Nichia emitter.
