    Yea, I'm really liking the Electrician. Eventually, I'll have to get another one to keep as is. I'm looking forward to getting started on the custom sak, just waiting on the pivot barrels to show up in the mail.

    Not exactly inbound to my doorstep, but I do have a Gen 4 G26 on order.

    Placed the order over the phone last Monday and the fellow said, "Might even be here later this week." So of course Thursday I start looking at my phone for missed calls from the shop. Nothing Thurs, Fri or yesterday.

    The shop is a long enough drive from my home that it'll be a weekend trip, so it looks like next week is going to a long one waiting for the weekend to come...

    Just remembered I placed an Amazon order for automotive fuses. Blew one replacing my HID kit last week.

    Installed it first in 2009, an "Xtreme HID" kit with Phillips bulbs. A ballast went out a couple of weeks ago and ordering a full replacement kit was more sensible than just one ballast/igniter.

    Anyway, the point is: of the thousands I've spent on upgrades/additions to my 2008 4Runner, HID headlights was the best $ I've spent.

    My first Spyderco PM2, with the camo scales and black blade. Purchased right here from a fine gentleman off the BST forum (or at least I sure hope he's a gentleman; guess I'll know for sure once the knife arrives :D). I'm beyond stoked—it's pretty much my grail Spydie.

    Between that and my Sage 1, I'm just one knife away from all the Spydies I ever wanted: a DF2 with the ZDP-189 steel is my final wish. After that it will be onto a MiniGrip for the EDC rotation and a Rat 2 to replace my Tenacious in the role of value folder. Once that's accomplished, the collection will be perfect for all time and I'll never desire another knife again.

    (Yeah, right!)

    Been looking for a (non-gun) backpack, mainly for a 13" laptop and some EDC... Came across this on ebay:

    [​IMG]

    It was reasonable, figured I'd give it a try. Not game yet for a $100+ bag, so at $30 this is an experiment that's within budget--- and will hopefully work out.

    I'm also going for not overt "tactical" or "tacticool" but mainly functional.

    I grabbed the mail as I came in and found a package from Jerry L all I can say is wow this guy some awesome work with knots and cord. My pics don't do it justice for how clean and uniform it looks.

    Then there was a package from Mr Atwood. My G3 Keyton has been replaced. This one may need a locator chip.

    And finally to answer the question about the Vendetta Mask. It is another buff type thing I got in an Instagram GAW.

    Got some tins like altoids, but these are sliding lids instead of hinged. I think sliding is easier to open with one hand.

    I have had my L10 C in my pocket most days since getting it about a month ago. For the money a great little light.
    What are the long objects in the package on the left?
