Yes … you are correct. I wouldn’t want anyone to get the wrong idea about my covert activities. These days my one man Spec OP’s amount to taking the trash out curbside every Tuesday night, slicing open the odd bag of Doritos and periodically glancing at my wrist for a time check. Pretty sneaky with the right “Black” tools and keeping to the operations budget.

That’s a pretty Ganzo CF set you have there! Thumbs Up
How do you like your F753M with CF? I have the G10 version and I’m planning to grab a CF one too.

Black folder and black flashlight along with my 2nd generation Ganzo G729 in a (more or less) neat order:

I really like the G729 not because its great ergonomics, skeletonized liners, smooth action or capability for every day cutting tasks but because I can annoy two different fanboy groups by it easily at the same time. Wink Wink Wink

I am quite fond of the F753M line. I own several and love the utility. Great blade with an excellent clip and choil. Easy to sharpen in the field with my DMT diamond pocket folder. I keep a green F753M1 in my nail bags … I am a carpenter … and it has served me well for all sorts of duties from sharpening my pencil to opening a beer … Beer

... Happy Landings ...

Whatever anybody says, these cheap knives are good to start on with some modding.

How much does the “Praetorian” (in the middle) weight?
I have the full steel version and that’s the heaviest folder I have ever seen. Smile


I measured 246g for that SR knife.
Ctsmart claw knife is 201g while Sanrenmu is 54g.

cool i'll see you when you get there

maybe not? Evil (but certainly a good knife!)

The Terävä Jääkäripuukko is ~33€ (yes, without the sheath and postage fee)

Flashlights, blades & beer
Let’s stay relatively optimist!

I’m guessing to fit a TEK-LOK onto the rear side? (rear not shown in the photos)

https://blade-tech.com/products/attachments

"Over 2000000 hours (about 200 years) standby time"  (DQG Tiny 4th)

"27,157 results for zoomable flashlight" (ebay)

I built this custom Kydex sheath so I could attach the knife to my backpack via MOLLE points. Oh yea … and to shovel snow.

Really nice work!

.

I recently picked up a few sheets of kydex T to try my hand at some sheath creations.

I also want to make a flashlight sheath similar to this:

"Over 2000000 hours (about 200 years) standby time"  (DQG Tiny 4th)

"27,157 results for zoomable flashlight" (ebay)
