    Looks great. Nice gear. What's the story on the Ti nut tool?

    Nice Stuff! I can definitely see how you got your username :)

    However, you need to march yourself over to CPF (or Jon's site ;D) and get yourself a flashlight worthy of EDC.

    There's nothing wrong with a Photon (of course). But I'd think you'd like something that can illuminate outside of your personal space...

    (Or maybe you have a couple of McLux's lurking in that bag of yours) :surprise:

    Not to knock your titanium kuboton, but couldnt you just use the titanium nut tool or the weird shaped thing thats at the 6 o clock position as a kuboton?

    I do need a better flashlight and I have my sight set on the surefire E2D. Is there a better choice for the $$? I could use my pen as a Kubaton, but what fun would that be... :laugh:

    The Ti Nut tool is some type of tool for mountain climbing? I just had to have it because it was titanium! :crazy2: I told you I was a little crazy!!

    IMHO the E2 Defender is probably the coolest looking production light. But being only incandescent rules out my using it for EDC (bulbs do burn out- and go through batteries quick).

    Take a look at the Surefire A2. It's got an incandescent main bulb (regulated though!) and 3 little leds for close up/back up use (they're available in different colors). Another option is the L2. It uses a 5watt LED with a high/low switch. It can best be described as a 'wall of light'. 100 Lumens of flood light- not as much throw as the incands...

    But like I said, those are icky production lights. Might as well jump right in to the customs....

    I highly recommend anything by McGizmo. You can pick up an Aleph at the Sandwich Shoppe. Some of 'em are under $200. Better yet would be the McLux PD, but they're scarce right now waiting on new electronics (and a titanium body ;D).

    Seriously, head over to candlepowerforums.com (if you haven't already).

    I have added a ton of new stuff since this photo was taken. I have purchsed 5 new Atwood items, a Surefire E2D, a forged Ti-Bot, and a couple of other toys. I will soon be selling some of my knives to pay for all this stuff. Watch for it in the buy and sell section. I will post a new photo when I receive all my new stuff... :crazy2:

    Hi, very nice stuff !! :)
    Can you post links to where the unusual items can be found? Then we can check out and maybe find new sites with gear.
