Limited Editions, Awesome Upgrades

So the RRT-001 selector ring light from JetBeam I covered here is getting a sexy titanium body and a new name, the TCR-1  This limited edition light, found here at BatteryJunction for $180.00, looks like a world class light.  I love the selector ring only UI, as shown in the review of the Mr. Elfin, and the TCR-1's infinitely variable with a very, very low low.  It is also a smallish light, running about the same size as the Incendio.  Finally, it has my favorite flashlight clip ever, the McGizmo, on it.  If you are looking for a nice, high end light but can't quite afford a Haiku (or wait for me to give you one), the TCR-1 looks super sweet.

Next up is the Kershaw Skyline special edition (order and info thread).  This version of the Skyline, which is quite a good EDC blade, comes with bright blue handles and S30V blade steel.  I love the Skyline and I even liked the 14C28N steel, but the S30V is a clear upgrade.  Oh and it is going to be full flat ground.  It is a bit steep, especially compared to the normal retail version, clocking in at $90 compared to $25 for the standard version, but this is a "fantasy team" knife.    

Keep your eyes out, these sprint run, limited editions go fast and often resell well if you don't like them.


  1. It may be a little pricey, but the important thing is that it is a high quality and durable blade. It's definitely better than getting something on the cheap that has to be replaced often.
