Enlan Knife/Flashlight 'Multifunctional'?!

First post!  awesome site and members...except the effect you have on my bank account....xeno E03 and enlan e01 are my latest buys:)

So, while searching for knife options I visited Enlan's page.  The show a photo off a cool looking knife w/ flashlight at this page but I can't find model number or info - and can't find it for sale anywhere?

Anybody have info on this?!

My dream EDC is an axis lock knife w/ butane torch and >60 lumen light all in one package.  I'd pay so much for that...

Welcome to BLF you seem to have made some thorough research before ordering. This would have been my first recommendations. Regarding the combo - I don't like those combos because they are so limited in their capabilities and the light often is inferior to separate solutions like the ITP A3 / Olight I3.

yes, I spend hours...that turn into days, reading reviews and researching most products before purchasing.  in fact, i spend so much time doing it I could use that time to make enough money to buy every one of the options I research instead lol - but I like the research part too... 

this is a great site for that...since I'm not into the stuff (especially when so much of it runs well into 3 digits USD$) that dominates other light forums:)

yes, i agree that the utility suffers w/ the multifunction products - usually severely - but there are times that I would make that compromise, and I hope that interest in that niche will end up inspiring someone to make a well designed, quality product...eventually

the best solution might be a well designed case/holster for the right components, instead of a 1 piece do it all...

so you've seen or tried that enlan light/knife?  got any links or info, ie name, price, emitter...anything?  thanks!

I think many of the knives a primarily aimed at the Chinese market and never appear on the Western markets. Maybe you can ask ashuang0731 if he can offer this knife or something similar. He seems to have a good insight in the Chinese knife market. MisterTao or aliexpress are also worth looking at.

www.exduct.com do a lot of Enlan's knives so worth checking them out.

I found a thread where someone listed a whole lot of dealers for chinese knives and went through each site, at first looking for srm 9 series knives (wasn't willing to pay the extra on great wide outdoors for a 962 over the enlan e01 on exduct so i ordered that) but I can't seem to find the light/knife pictured on that enlan page I linked.

I agree with most people on multi functional stuff - even on the nicer multitools - I own at least 6 nice ones, ranging in cost from $15 to a leatherman that can't be had for less that $70 - and when camping I use a fixed blade knife, flashlight, and small channel locks in my pocket instead of a multi tool...

But I will probably buy that enlan if I find it, just for fun...looks like the 'tool logic' stuff and it might be half way decent if that is a pen light that is actually removable and not just glued in there:)

it would probably be more useful than my autocraft 20million candlepower spotlight (which i love btw lol)
