  • Bright little light

    posted byStupendousMan on 09/05/2012

    Bright. I don't have measuring equipment, but the 120-140lm quoted in the description sounds believable, and not the usual hyperbole. The beam pattern is flood with no hotspot. The light doesn't get as hot as you'd think with 7w, it probably use I... Read more

  • Good and cheap

    posted byStupendousMan on 09/05/2012

    Works as expected: Glows bright at 12 volts, does not light up at 4 volts. The tester end is a sharp point, which is better than the usual screwdriver end (in my opinion). This kind of pen is more convenient to use than a multimeter, when you only... Read more

  • A serious self defense weapon

    posted byStupendousMan on 09/05/2012

    This is definitely not a toy. I tried to break one, by hitting log house walls, but damage to the plastic was only cosmetic. It also made nice dents in dry timber. Works like brass knuckles. Intuitive to use, just punch normally, requires no Small... Read more

  • I really like it, my favourite spork

    posted byStupendousMan on 01/10/2012

    I have many camping spoon-knife-combinations (also called sporks) but I like this one the most. Smaller than military sporks, can even be used as a (rather large) keychain. One piece simple design makes it easy to clean in the field, as well as is... Read more

  • A nice spacesaver for campers

    posted byStupendousMan on 01/10/2012

    Most importantly: It doesn't leak. Folds into a small packet, and there is room in the middle to store something, such as sugar cubes. Machine washable. Seems well made, will probably last a long time. Like others have said, it rattles when clip I... Read more

  • My favourite lighter

    posted byStupendousMan on 01/10/2012

    A good design and well made. I prefer this to a zippo. Excellent value. Nice size, I use it as a keychain. Still holds a decent amount of fluid, and keeps it in thanks to tight tolerances and O-ring on cap. Flat bottom, can act as a candle. Slow a... Read more

  • Good multipurpose nylon rope

    posted byStupendousMan on 12/22/2011

    Good quality nylon rope. Paracord-type construction, with an outer sheath and inner strands, all nylon. It is strong, I believe the 140kg rating to be true. The rope feels softer than 550 paracord, which makes it great for wrapping knife handles.... Read more

  • Good little knife

    posted byStupendousMan on 12/22/2011

    Knife is good quality. I ordered three, and all came sharp with a nice finish. Despite the very small size and weight, the knife feels solid. Easily strong enough for everyday use, and a good backup knife for camping and such. The handle is good a... Read more

  • Sturdy short blade knife

    posted byStupendousMan on 12/19/2011

    4mm thick everywhere, except for the edge of course. Good design, fits your hand quite well. Pretty sharp out of the box. Small enough to carry in your pocket. Edge is only 54mm long, which probably makes it legal to carry in some countries. Comes... Read more

  • Heavy duty knife

    posted byStupendousMan on 12/19/2011

    Very solid knife, made out of 5mm thick steel! Serrated edge on the blade's back, where it doesn't get in the way. Smaller than the average survival knife, with a slim cord wrapped handle and a pretty low profile sheath make this easy to carry in... Read more
