The biggest issue I have with most small pens is they tend to be two pieces, I would love if they made a fisher pen about the same size as it collapsed with a push button. I I just love the Manager, especially when i learned how to hold it properly (with the file extended).
Because I have been so satisfied with that tool I base my other tool choices around it. I really think the Leatherman Crunch is probably the best complement to the manager. It has a true plier capable of adjusting any size nut up to 1" and it has a FULL 1/4 inch bit driver which makes it's functionality explode. The other reason I suggest the crunch is that it has a Serrated blade which makes sense when you also carry a dedicated knife. As for wallet..I have the Anti-gear solo wallet sitting in my locked mailbox right now grr...Can't wait till wife gets home with the key. Its basically the modular wallet of my dreams lol. Cheers,H.G.
You're still learning... You should hold it rotated 180º, so the file doesn't close when you press it against the space between your index and thmb.
Pretty nice setup!
Let‘s move to flashlights! What lumen do you think is needed? What activation mechanism do you prefer? Size factor: small enough to fit on a key chain or slightly larger for better handling?Let‘s hear it!
I think we can move on from pens and wallets. We had some really nice ones posted, and i don‘t think we need to make a decision on these items as they are all about personal preference.Let‘s move to flashlights!

I'm definitely curious about the firefly mode on the Thrunite. Really 115 hours? Is 0.04 lumens enough light to actually be useful for anything?
Yes. Firefly modes are good for finding your torch in the darkness. Not bright enough to stop you getting some shut eye, but if you do wake in the night, and need the torch to see by, it gives off enough light so you can see it in the dark. The tricky part is remembering to turn it off again in the morning, as you might not notice its on.
Interesting. I hadn't thought about that.Wouldn't it make more sense to incorporate a glow-in-the-dark button or ring into the flashlight, so that it could be located in the dark by a means that doesn't run down the battery? I'm actually surprised more manufacturers don't do this. I put lanyards with glow-in-the-dark beads on several of my flashlights, and it works like a charm.
That is always the tricky question. Do you use the smaller tool and loose some utility, or do you use the larger tool and end up witha not so minimal EDC.
