Folding Knife is a Flashlight
May 11, 2012
You might be familiar with Real Avid's Revelation fixed-blade knife. It also has a built-in flashlight, just like this new Revelation Amp folding knife. While the fixed-blade is a great product, you really shouldn't use it for anything but field dressing or tight cutting work in the dark. You really cannot use it as a flashlight to find your laser range finder, tent zipper or best friend. Think about it: Walking around, pointing the flashlight — and blade — Â in the dark is just asking for trouble. That's why this new folder is so cool... You can use the blades and light, or keep the blades folded, and use just the lights for shining about in the dark without cutting something you didn't intend to cut.
The folder's 3 1/2-inch blade is 440 stainless steel. Three sets of batteries are included. Comes with or without a gut hook. You might have noticed that some companies only sharpen one part of the inside of the gut hook. That leaves some of the surfaces blunt, which attracts hair and fat as you're unzipping. Real Avid's hooks is sharp all around the inside. It helps take frustration out of dressing your big-game animal. $49-$59.
