    ive never had the Military but have had multiple Paramiltary 2.   Never should have traded them.   One of their “sprint runs” was my favorite knife ever.   Hope it treats you well!

    Thanks @TechsasJim, Spyderco military has been my edc for as long as I can remember, honestly i bought the m4 on eBay thinking it was new but after winning I saw it was used… hopefully he took good care of it.

    On a different note does anyone have experience with Coast torches/flashlights/lanterns?    I have always used Streamlight or Surefire but have seen some good feedback on Coast.   Looking more for a lantern style for storm - power loss use.

    Paging @nolaegghead as he has a wealth of knowledge about flashlights although the brand comments escape me.

    I went down the rabbit hole created by the opening thread that this was created from.  No further comments.

    I am not sure this satisfies your needs, but I have a couple of these from Harbor Freight and they are awesome for lighting.  The magnet is strong and they stand on their own well, too.  They do not light 360° like a lantern, but dang, are they bright.  And, they double as a portable power source to charge other devices.

    I have used them during power outages, under the Jeep, under the Jeep dash, and to light a number of projects.  They are worth having around.

    Good deal, thanks for this.  I just want a couple to have on hand and I have a HF a couple mins from the house.   

    Thanks for the advice!

    Those are awesome, Teefus.  For the first year, they were called "Silver Eagle" and the bus company took exception, so Gerber changed the name.

    I have a few, they are great knives, but I everyone already knows I am a fan of anything Gerber.

    @WeberWho - beautiful knives and even sweeter gift.  Better to be lucky than good.  I am finished with the EDC knife hook.  Every day I see my purchase of January 2023 and remind myself-finished!! But worth it! 
    Edit: your initial EDC thread (before getting submerged for who knows why...) and the "Home Wrecker" video did the damage.  Many thanks-

    Just me, because only on, but just a few of my 100s of bags of Rockwood I have opened, very few (by very few, I mean twice), have I opened without my knife. If you find one capable of that, and opening bottles of beer, and having a corkscrew, I think you would find your best Big Green Egg knife.

    @WeberWho - great give and take stories with knives and your father.  Lasting memories for sure.  
    I am done buying after last year's rabbit hole trip.   B)

    I've been holding off on buying the black Elementum 2 above for the last year. I was really hoping they would have had a wooden scales version by this time but I've had no luck waiting on one. They have a wood scale version for the 1st Elementum model but no wood scales for the second generation with the flipper. So I've been pretty good about not pulling the trigger on anything else in the meantime. I'd still would like a "Sunday" knife with some type of wood scales but more of a want than need at this point. Fortunately cheaper knives have come a long way in the last 5 years or so with steel they've developed. It's become a lot more competitive. You can pick up some really nice knives for under $75 nowadays.
