Hey guys,

Thought I would post my experience with the Gerber LHR Combat Knife I recently purchased. The LHR stands for Larsen, Harsey and Reeve. The designers involved in coming up with this knife. This thing is a hunk of steel and has a great textured handle. It has a portion of the blade that is serrated. The handle is comfortable and rubberized but firm. The sheath seems to be of moderate quality and comes with many options to wear it. The included straps are of good quality made of a seat belt type material with some Velcro pieces.

My only negative response so far is that the knife is so securely fastened in the holster that quick and easy access is not always an option. Gerber markets this as a “quick release holster” it is exactly the opposite. It has a lock tab so getting the knife into and out of the holster and sometimes be a bear if you don’t know what you’re doing.

However, this also makes the knife more secure. If you were to run, crawl, etc. the knife doesn’t make a sound when doing any of the above. The knife came pretty sharp with a good edge. I would call this more of a bowie knife than I would a combat knife as it is very large and wouldn’t be the best in close quarters combat unless you really needed to stab someone but I would say if you came up behind them you may risk stabbing yourself as well because of the length. Made in the USA. I purchased new off of Ebay for around a hundred with free shipping. In review, I’d give it 4 of 5 stars based on ease of use.

Hey guys I recently bought a Energizer Tactical Flashlight from Cabela’s and wanted to give it a thorough review. It cost me about 20 bones and it is fairly heavy for a small item. It is made out of some kind of metal or aluminum. It has a sturdy belt clip and the button on the back is not overly stiff. The thing that really amazed me was the price point and the brightness. This thing will definitely blind a would be attacker and/or light up a room in the dark. Honestly I think this thing could stand up against some of the more expensive brands like Surefire. I will probably buy another for keeping in the bedroom or daily carry. Comes with a small lanyard as well. Here are the specs below:

· Bright 1 Watt LED delivers ~ 45 lumens

· Knurled grip with a durable

· 7hr run time w/ AA Lithium – 3.5hr w/ alkaline

· Durable machine high strength aluminum case

· Regulatory circuitry for stable light output

· Weatherproof

· Push button tail switch

· Packed Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA batteries
