The E15 LED flashlight by Fenix is one of Fenix company’s newest offerings. Featuring a high efficiency optic system, a solid T6 grade aircraft aluminum body, IPX8 waterproof construction, and a Type III hard anodized body and head, this little light really gets the job done. A good friend of mine came in a few weeks ago–just before we got these E15 lights in stock. He was looking for a good flashlight for a camping trip he was about to take. I showed him several different lights and he ended up picking the LD10. After he got back from his trip, he was looking for his flashlight to show a friend. He couldn’t find it and asked his wife if she had seen it. Apparently, she had and she liked it. So he came back in and picked up another one. I really like the LD10. I like the E15 even better. It is very small. Almost unbelievably small. It is amazingly powerful. And it is inexpensive. Check out a Fenix–you won’t be disappointed.

We recently started carrying the full line of Browning Knives here at BladeOps.com. We also stock almost all of their flashlights. The line of presentation knives and hunting knives is robust and each of the knives shows the quality and thought that has made the Browning line what it is today. If you are looking for a great hunting knife, skinning knife, or all around good camp knife–you are sure to find something you like in our Browning Knife section. One really nice thing about the LED flashlights Browning produces is that most of them come prepackaged with batteries–that is a great little extra. Check them out and let us know what your favorite Browning knife is. I’m partial to the Whitetail knives as well as the Backcountry Camp knife. Also, watch our site for five extra special salesman sample knives. Each of these is a limited edition knife that was produced in a serial number batch of 500. Aside from the 500 knives, there were also 75 serial numbered knives produced that bear a serial number as well as the initials SS–which stands for salesman’s sample. Each of these knives are high quality, collectibles that are sure to look great in a collection.
Here at BladeOps.com we focus most of our time and energy on knives. But every once in a while we come across another product that we really like. You may have noticed in the past few months, we have begun to stock a few self defense products as well as some basic flashlights. One of the all time best flashlights that we have come across is the Fenix LD10. This small tactical flashlight is just four inches long. The LD10 has six output patterns with the brightest being a whopping 132 Lumens. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you can squeeze 34 hours of survival use (9 lumens) at the lowest setting. The other great thing about the LD10 is that it is built from aluminum and has a Type III hard anodized finish. All this, and it is waterproof to IPX-8 standards. If you didn’t know, an IP rating is part of a classification system that utilizes the letters “IP” (“Ingress Protection”) followed by two or three digits. (A third digit is sometimes used. An “x” is used for one of the digits if there is only one class of protection; i.e. IPX4 which addresses moisture resistance only.)IPX8 protected against submersion 1m+. What this means is that this little flashlight can even handle some serious weather. If you are looking for a great flashlight for outdoors, for your survival kit, or for tactical use, the LD10 by Fenix is definitely one to look at.
