Prometheus Preon P1 MkIII Flashlight

When you put together manufacturing prowess, over a decade of experience in pioneering flashlights, and the latest in flashlight tech, you're bound to get something special. And it's hard to describe the Preon P1 MkIII as anything but, with all the history behind it. Born out of the partnership of Prometheus Lights and Foursevens, the Preon represents a quality tool that only makers of their caliber can produce. Needless to say, it's one of the most refined AAA lights you can buy today.

The Preon P1 MkIII's exterior is a subtle fusion of both companies' design languages. On first glance you see the familiar Foursevens Preon, with its machined ridges and tapered middle barrel to accommodate your preferred grip method. Then there's the Prometheus screw-in titanium clip: a clip so good it sells on its own for other flashlights. Finally there's the materials the Preon comes in: Electroless Nickel plating and CR3 (Tri-Chrome) + PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating over 6061-T6 aluminum, both technical solutions Prometheus have used to give their lights a unique total coating that doesn't mess with the light's rear click switch operation.

In spite of its looks, the Preon P1 MkIII isn't meant to be just pocket candy. It comes with the latest and greatest Nichia 219C LED, rated at 92+ CRI (Color Rendering Index) for the closest approximation to natural light you can currently get. It also allows for a higher current than its 219B predecessor, meaning it can more efficiently produce and hold its 100-lumen output. The Preon also comes with a programmable user interface, letting you pick from 6 configurations that make use of its 7 modes. An included NiMH AAA battery also gives the light a stable and rechargeable power source so you aren't wasting disposable batteries on your light (or harming it in the worst case).

While the Preon P1 MkIII marks the first steps of Prometheus and Foursevens, it's clear that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and shows the clear influence and experience of both its creators.

Benchmade 486 Saibu

What makes for a good everyday carry knife? It's all in the details. And in the case of the new Benchmade 486 Saibu, it's chock full of 'em. Designed in collaboration with custom knifemaker Seiichi Nakamura, the Saibu not only offers an EDC-sized blade made of premium steel, but it also comes in a unique, attractive design that's built to stand up to your day-to-day. The name of the knife literally means "details," and they all come together in this decidedly modern gent's EDC folder.

The Saibu features a premium CPM-20CV stainless steel drop point blade that's super sharp and wear resistant. At 2.98” it offers plenty of cutting edge for EDC tasks while keeping compact, making it an excellent option for EDCers in places with stricter knife laws. It's a plain edge knife with a high flat grind that lets it tackle slicing tasks with ease. But the curve at the tip lets you get in close for detail cutting work when needed.

The Saibu also sports dual thumbstuds and Benchmade's AXIS lock, providing fully ambidextrous operation. That AXIS lock sits within a beautiful ergonomic handle made primarily of lightweight G10 scaling for superior grip and control. Windows are cut into the handle to save on weight, but also to add gorgeous cocobolo wood inlays, giving the Saibu a refined modern gent's look.

But beyond the looks, the practicality of the design also means that this knife only weighs 2.7 ounces, making it barely noticeable in your pockets until you need to use it. The reversible tip-up deep carry pocket clip adds further versatility and convenience to carrying this stellar knife around everywhere.

True to its name the Saibu is a detail-oriented modern gent's knife that has the design and the materials that make it an excellent choice for EDC. It's attractively-styled yet immensely practical, it's a knife that both looks great in hand and feels great when you actually have to use it. Check it out at the link below.
