Here's my Hogue. I tell you, Hogue is producing some simply awesome knives nowadays and I'll put 'em up against a Benchmade any day of the week. The quality and fit & finish is just outstanding.

I simply happen to be a knife collector who appreciates a quality blade. I do not sexually fetishize them and personally find such an idea revolting.

Edited to add: Please accept my sincere apologies if you were joking, I've been accused of sexually fetishizing weapons too many times on this board before and knee-jerked, it just bugs the crap out of me when folks do that.

I WAS joking, because I own 4 handguns, two rifles and get a lot of that same kind of teasing myself. of course there ARE people who are weird like that, but I hope to NEVER MEET THEM! :smash:  I can appreciate the collecting of almost anything, for asthetics and such.

Brother, I feel like a complete and utter heel. Once again, I humbly apologize. Tell you what, anyone ever gives you crap about weapons ever again, shoot me a message and we'll school 'em together! I've got your 6!

I have a benchmade model 32 mini-morpho balisong. Being a little shorter, it's legal to carry here. I like flipping it as it fits well in my somewhat small trumpish hands. :P It seriously makes a terrific EDC knife.

Otherwise I carry a wallet, cell phone, insulin pen, and blood glucose meter.

No pun intended?  I work on a federal installation where they don't legally allow employees or visitors to carry knives or guns but I carry a Spyderco Chaparral (it's thin and only has a 2 13/16 inch blade) anyway. I also have a small 4Sevens light that has a couple of lumen options up to 1020. In the car, I have 2 flashlights, also from 4Sevens, 1 is small and if I need to find something under a seat or look under the hood or in the trunk, and the other is a 2000 lumen monster for defensive purposes.

For CC purposes, I have a Taurus Millennium G2  in .40 S&W. I'd like to sell that and get a Smith&Wesson M&P Shield in .45 ACP, but it's such a pita to legally sell a gun these days.

Have you seen where some folks have had trouble with Milleniums going when they're shaken or jarred? There was a big hue and a cry about it some three or four years ago.

P.S. No, no pun intended, I always say that.

Also, thanks for the info on 4Seven flashlights, I'd never even heard of them but will be looking into them. I EDC a Klarus, what I like about it is that it features two seperate switches, on for steady-on and one for strobe. I also EDC a smaller 1 AA Fenix so I don't have to worry about burning up the 123 batteries my Klarus uses as I have that one strictly for tactical/defesive use so the Fenix is for everyday tasks and is also bright enough to sub as a tac light should anything happen to the Klarus.

Yeah, I’d last about two minutes in the wild.  :lol:

:D well, just becaue my EDC is mostly survival-related doesn't mean I expect everyone else to do the same. In fact, you carry survival gear and don't even realize it. Take your phone. If you're ever stranded and your phone goes dead you'd probably think it would be useless. The screen is highly reflective and could be used to signal a pasing plane, boat, or vehicle. Carefully smash it with a rock and remove the battery and then pierce the battery with a knife. In about five seconds it will combust and burn hot enough and long enough to gate a fire going. Also, remove the circuit board and shape and sharpen it on a rock and you've got a spear or arrowhead. Take your wallet and cut the biggest diamond-shaped pisece you can from the outer part. Use the wire from your ear pods and you can rig a sling (the rock-throwing kind) for hunting small game. There are also lots of survival manuals apps that are completely free. Download one or two and read a little every now and then when you're bored.

I'd like to make one of the things I just told Disk everyone's "homework". Like I said, there are a lot of free survival manual apps available for download. Everybody go and get one on your phone or tablet and read it every now and then when you're bored. The best free one is the US Army survival manual, so get that one.

Then he should start. Every man worth his salt should EDC at least a small knife. Go order one of those Christy knives I talked about on page 2.

An update   To our friends and customers,...

I am pleased to announce that Prometheus Lights has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Foursevens brand and assets. The last few years have been an incredible journey for Foursevens (est. 2008), and Prometheus Lights (est. 2011). I’d like to thank David Chow, founder of Foursevens, for building an incredible company and strong brand in the marketplace. It is a humbling opportunity to build upon his great work and continue the Foursevens legacy.
We both started years ago with the belief that innovative ideas and hard work could transform the humble flashlight into a powerful tool of the modern age. I want to assure our community that Prometheus Lights will remain focused on leading the market and fulfilling this mission.
I met David back in 2012 and I have long admired Foursevens industry leadership, dedication to excellence, and customer-focused solutions while also contributing to a great community of enthusiasts.
Some changes are in the pipeline, though I want to assure you that Foursevens will resemble the tried and true Foursevens that you have grown to love. We now have more resources to continue building products that delight our customers and deliver innovation for years to come.

Here's my Hogue. I tell you, Hogue is producing some simply awesome knives nowadays and I'll put 'em up against a Benchmade any day of the week. The quality and fit & finish is just outstanding.

I bet you involuntarily orgasm when you go to that site!

I simply happen to be a knife collector who appreciates a quality blade. I do not sexually fetishize them and personally find such an idea revolting.

Edited to add: Please accept my sincere apologies if you were joking, I've been accused of sexually fetishizing weapons too many times on this board before and knee-jerked, it just bugs the crap out of me when folks do that.

I WAS joking, because I own 4 handguns, two rifles and get a lot of that same kind of teasing myself. of course there ARE people who are weird like that, but I hope to NEVER MEET THEM! :smash:  I can appreciate the collecting of almost anything, for asthetics and such.


Brother, I feel like a complete and utter heel. Once again, I humbly apologize. Tell you what, anyone ever gives you crap about weapons ever again, shoot me a message and we'll school 'em together! I've got your 6!

No pun intended?  I work on a federal installation where they don't legally allow employees or visitors to carry knives or guns but I carry a Spyderco Chaparral (it's thin and only has a 2 13/16 inch blade) anyway. I also have a small 4Sevens light that has a couple of lumen options up to 1020. In the car, I have 2 flashlights, also from 4Sevens, 1 is small and if I need to find something under a seat or look under the hood or in the trunk, and the other is a 2000 lumen monster for defensive purposes.

For CC purposes, I have a Taurus Millennium G2  in .40 S&W. I'd like to sell that and get a Smith&Wesson M&P Shield in .45 ACP, but it's such a pita to legally sell a gun these days.

Have you seen where some folks have had trouble with Milleniums going when they're shaken or jarred? There was a big hue and a cry about it some three or four years ago.

P.S. No, no pun intended, I always say that.

I am familiar with the problems and there was a recall and a class action suit but I have a G2 which supposedly doesn't have those problems. I haven't had any issues with it, at least not like that.

Also, 4Sevens either went out of business or was sold in December. The owner posted a video that seemed to indicate he sold the company, but I can't find anything else about it.
An update   To our friends and customers,...

I am pleased to announce that Prometheus Lights has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Foursevens brand and assets. The last few years have been an incredible journey for Foursevens (est. 2008), and Prometheus Lights (est. 2011). I’d like to thank David Chow, founder of Foursevens, for building an incredible company and strong brand in the marketplace. It is a humbling opportunity to build upon his great work and continue the Foursevens legacy.
We both started years ago with the belief that innovative ideas and hard work could transform the humble flashlight into a powerful tool of the modern age. I want to assure our community that Prometheus Lights will remain focused on leading the market and fulfilling this mission.
I met David back in 2012 and I have long admired Foursevens industry leadership, dedication to excellence, and customer-focused solutions while also contributing to a great community of enthusiasts.
Some changes are in the pipeline, though I want to assure you that Foursevens will resemble the tried and true Foursevens that you have grown to love. We now have more resources to continue building products that delight our customers and deliver innovation for years to come.
We are excited to share more about what we will be working on in the coming months. The possibilities are unlimited, and we are just getting started…stay tuned!
Onward, upward, and thanks for your support,

The day before to posted this, I bought three Gold Armor Tactical Flashlights for use to find the miniscule parts I sometimes drop into the carpet in front of my chair so I can finish my models!  I can't see ever needing another flashlight, these are so GREAT!  Sorry, I would have tried your stuff before I bought had I known!

Do you wear a headlamp when working on your models? If so, what kind? I like Petzl.
