    That is a cool looking knife. Yes, I'm with Mooshi, a little red nail polish in the thumb stud:D
    Unless you're ever gonna need to take it off.

    Dangit, now I want a MiniGrip. All the cool kids have one.
    But according to Defuse Kit, I really really need a flashlight first.

    That reminds me, KAMM! You have a ton of flashlights, whats a really bright one? Thats like my only requirement.

    You got a PM2, you'll live for a bit ;)

    Bright is good, really bright can be overkill, sacrificing run time and form factor for brightness you don't need.

    Pick one up off BST or grab a cheap surefire, streamlight, Sunwayman, zebra light, fenix, or whatever KAMM recommends. She's getting really good at this :D

    Nope. Are rechargeable ones any good?
    And I was just eyeballing that Quantum D2. I don't know squat about what makes a flashlight good but it looks cool.

    I've personally always wanted a Sunwayman V10R. I just really like the idea of it. Granted, I know next to nothing about torches. :)

    Hmmmm - do you know a woodworker? There is a species of wood called Purple Heart. I used some to build a jewelry box for my younger son. You can see pix here.

    As a primary I wouldn't get the d2 BUT that's an AWESOME backup. I carry my DD round my neck. :)

    As far as rechargeables I really like eneloops AA for my lights. Convenient and sorta cheap. I carry back ups and my primary is normally AA. I'd go for something by Fenix. Mainly because they're affordable and they have some pretty cool UI. Or Jet Beam. Also a great brand. AA for one of those two brands would work perfectly for your first light. Lumapower makes some great lights as well. But the first two Id go for first. ;)

    The v11r is an incredible light. I go in and out of darkness so this light is pretty much perfect.

    I think the Latin on the EDCF coin actually translates to that!
