Olight Brass i3S


This simple shot features the CRKT Pilar, the “Bottle Scalper” by Nicoll Knives, and the Olight i3S in brass.

The CRKT Pilar is a great little inexpensive knife. I did a quick write up about it in a previous post titled “Budget EDC”. This one has darkened, etched scales to get a little better contrast between the handle and the blade.

The bottle scalper by Nicholl knives is a simple bottle opener/pry bar tool that will fit just about anywhere.

The Olight i3S is a small key-chain/pocket light that runs off of a single AAA battery. This one is made from brass, and has a max output of 180 lumens for 3 minutes, then down to 90 to avoid overheating. The other 2 outputs include 20 lumens and 2 lumens.

I really enjoy the smaller, single AAA lights because they are easy to carry, and are usually more than enough light in everyday situations.


Pocket Stuff


Nothing really new here in this shot, just a typical “pocket dump”. I just really liked this particular mix of gear and wanted to share it.

Viper Odino – Designed by Jesper Voxnaes. Love this knife. One of my all time favorites and always will be.

Victorinox Spartan – Full brass scales on a custom Victorinox Spartan. Also one of my favorites.

Boker Plus Pen – The KID by Boker. Super tactical.  

Log & Jotter Notebook – My July notebook from the Log & Jotter notebook subscription service. Check them out if you regularly use pocket sized notebooks.

Thanks for looking!

Titanium Pioneer X


Sorry for the lack of posts lately, been on a nice long vacation in Switzerland.

Today I wanted to share one of my newest Swiss Army knives (and probably my favorite). This is a Pioneer X by Victorinox, which I reviewed in an earlier blog post. But this one is a bit different – this Pioneer has full titanium scales, and all of the tools have been etched and stonewashed. The handkerchief pictured is made by Alienated Supply Co.

John from Brasswerx put this one together for me, and he did a fantastic job. He recently got into modifying Swiss Army Knives, and this one was actually a part of his first batch. Serial number 003 to be exact..

The titanium scales add such a solid feel to the knife. Even more than the aluminum scales add compared to the cellidor scales. One side has the cross cut out (which is an awesome touch), and the other has a ¼” hex cut into it. I also love the darkened stonewashed look to the tools. It really changes the look of the knife completely.

I’m really glad that I was able to grab one of the knives in the first batch. It will definitely not be my last. You can check out more of his work on his website here, and his Instagram here.

Thanks for looking!
