Last night I worked on this odd ball no name - I got it because I think it’s a nice pattern and unusual. After these pics it took a nice edge, so I am satisfied that it’s at least decent quality and worth the risk of buying. Tonight I will cut the larger no name down into a smaller axe and post pics of the progress. I got the Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe in trade for some handle work - sweet - and I will be hanging those hammers for a friend as well.
I was given this Keen Kutter and as you can see it was in sad condition. Because of some severe damage I decided it needed to be cut if I was going to save it. Here is the progress so far. I’ve got a handle on order and I might make a few more alterations, but more pics when it’s finished.
Thrunite T10 Micro Review
Some less than stellar customer service from Thrunite and one defective unit has delayed my reviewing process somewhat but here we are. There was a light I didn’t order, flickering, a replacement, a bent pocket clip, out of stock items, it just didn’t go smoothly at first.
So we’ve got a reverse clicky three-mode with memory and a pretty low low - under 1 lumen supposedly. The tail cap is one of Thrunite’s selling points, being made of steel on all versions of the T10, and requiring what I would consider medium, just about right, pressure for activation. The click is somewhat short so - being a reverse clicky, changing modes with the light on - it requires something of a controlled tap to avoid turning the light off instead. It’s nothing major. The tail cap has a floating feel with some play. It comes in a nifty tin, with a diffuser, a nice pocket clip, extra screws and o-rings. The pocket clip caught on something and bent on one of our lights, and while that’s probably not going to happen often, the clips could use to be stiffer and heavier stock. It went back to shape easily enough. There are Ti, stainless, and aluminum versions with corresponding price points making this line fit a wide variety of budgets, including the budget minded at $30ish for the aluminum. You get lots of goodies for your coin, and an overall well designed light. The stainless version is heavier and tank-like, the workmanship appears to be neat and tidy, and it is a nice compact 1xAA form factor. One crew member remarked on several occasions that the battery life seemed better than expected after weeks of use and not one battery change. The medium mode makes useful light and returns significant run time. Thrunite assures me that the light will run on .9v however mine would not turn on with an Eneloop making 1.1v on a volt meter. There are no noises coming from the T10 in any mode. I’m gonna say, recommended.
Do me a favor and do not upload my content as your own. I took the picture, I purchased the Cryo and the L10, I did the edits. Take it down and show some integrity. I don’t put in the work and create content for someone else to claim as theirs. Do your own work.
