    HF’s Regularly Used Pocket EDC item I couldn’t leave alone ...
    I’m probably not the only one ... lol

    [​IMG] The basic items are;
    Victorinox SAK Manager black
    Quantum DD
    + 2 x Ice Blue Tritium vials
    P-7 TEC pocket clip
    Nite-Ize S-Biner #0.5 black
    McGizmo SS Nano Clip ~ 20 mm

    [​IMG]
    The minor but beneficial mods by Yours truly are;

    Titanium spreader - This was the remainder from a DPx HEST 2.0 Folder - D2 Titanium alloy short pocket clip mod. It has been rock solid for years and more easily allows each item to be removed. It also helps keeping the items spread and aligned in the pocket.


    Electrical insulation thermal shrink wrap has been used in a couple of places.
    The most obvious is probably on the Quantum DD torch. This reduces noise and wear on adjacent item. It also helps with finger grip as the Quantum light output varies by twist. I also used some cyanoacrylate glue to lock the insulation in place.
    Another application of shrink wrap is on the S-Biner end holding the Quantum light. The light end can work its way out of the clip without a small amount of insulation shrink over the S-Biner opening. This has also proven itself very reliable over the years of use.

    [​IMG]
    Attachment split rings haven’t escaped attention.
    The Titanium spreader has a flattened profile split ring for slim comfort in the pocket.
    The original SAK Manager ring was replaced with a smaller black one.

    Finally the SAK Manager’s tweezers were stone sharpened for better precision and performance.

    Oh yeah, battery bay of Quantum light has an extra magnet in there that makes QTC pill performance more reliable. Basically it makes for a larger flat squeezed area at battery -ve end where the QTC pill lives.

    Later models of Quantum lights have the Quantum Tunnelling Composite/Compound QTC at the battery’s +ve end.

    HF’s Paracord Bracelet with Forged Titanium Alloy Locking Shackle - 271020
    [​IMG]

    Plain jane not perfect black paracord bracelet with a small forged Titanium alloy locking shackle.

    The story here is the shackle …

    It was initially proposed to be a “cost effective” small series of investment cast Titanium shackles on Kickstarter. What it ended up being was a tardily supplied forged alloy even stronger shackle and loss making exercise according to the CEO. It’s an amazing shackle from a well established company with experience in Titanium shackle and fixture manufacture. Ultimately it was made as a result of misjudgment. Well in all honesty a fcukup. Modestly, not a surprise based on their initial stated proposition and my engineering POV. Aside from the Kickstarter project comments, it prompted a dialog directly with the CEO (Chris Grimes) which was interesting. The company doggedly and commendably stuck to it and after (quite) a bit of poking too they did come really good.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alliedtitanium/high-strength-titanium-locking-d-shackle/description


    The Kickstarter vid explains their initial intention to make a lower cost cast innovative Titanium alloy shackle.
