Wuben Releases the T4 Tactical Flashlight With Practical EDC Features

We’ve had our eyes on Wuben for a while now, and they’ve had a number of unique designs and impressive releases that set them apart from the rest of their flashlight peers. The new Wuben T4 goes back to basics as a compact tactical flashlight, delivering an impressive 850 lumens from its OSRAM KW CSLPM1.TG (6500K) LED to illuminate objects up to 1,315 feet away. Its premium aluminum construction, available in two alloys/finishes (natural in 7075, black in 6061) ensures it can handle the demanding tasks it was designed for.

It comes with a couple of features that reinforce its functionality, first of which you’ll probably notice is the serious tactical grip clip in these images. it’s designed to give a full-handed, secure grip around the light, centered around a pointy glass breaker tip. The T4 also offers three operational modes—Tactical, Duty, and Lockout— each enabled with a unique magnetic tail-cap mechanism for intuitive operation. No more having to navigate multi-button press menus to configure modes; the T4 is ready for duty from a quick, tactile action, and a proud tail switch makes it easy to activate even while gloved. The light comes with a regular clip in Wuben’s signature blue that can sit alongside the tactical grip for regular EDC as well.

The Wuben T4 is powered by a high-capacity 1100mAh 18350 battery for increased voltage/output and prolonged use. Onboard charging is available via an embedded Type-C charging port protected by a rotating ring, ensuring convenient and secure charging while safeguarding against water, dust, and impact damage. It’s IP68 dust and waterproof, able to survive drops up to 1.5 meters, making it a reliable tool for law enforcement, outdoor enthusiasts, EDCers, and anyone who needs a powerful and dependable tactical flashlight without breaking the bank.

The CRKT Provoke Grivory Is a Lighter Addition to the Morphing Karambit Family

In a year teeming with impressive knife releases, CRKT shakes things up with the Provoke Grivory, designed by genius knife maker Joe Caswell. This knife takes inspiration from CRKT’s classic karambit folding knives, known for their distinctive finger ring for enhanced grip and the futuristic Kinematic technology—a unique innovation that allows you to deploy the blade with the push of your thumb, eliminating the need for a traditional thumb stud or flipper.

Similar to its brothers, the CRKT Provoke Grivory sports a compact design, with an overall length of 7.19” when open and 4.96” when folded, ensuring convenient carry. It boasts a high carbon 2.47” claw-shaped stainless steel blade with a black stonewashed finish that offers excellent edge retention and scratch resistance. This new model’s handle is injection-molded from Grivory—a lightweight yet incredibly strong thermoplastic that guarantees durability. It also comes in 4 color options—Blue, Orange, Zap, and Red—all easy to spot in any condition, and features a low-profile, spring-loaded pocket clip that rests against the finger ring for a secure and discreet carry. The Provoke Grivory one-ups most iterations of the karambit, reminding us why we love CRKT, and if you like unique pieces, the Provoke Grivory is for you.
