ATTN: Photon users (was MiniBuck Owner's Report)
- Just wanted to point out that the 'flat' philips screwdriver is perfect for
the screws on the Photon lights.
I've had my miniBuck tool since 1998, used it on my thruhike and still carry
it with me on my keychain. Lost the "sheath" that came with it though and
wish I had it back. It keeps the knife a bit cleaner and keeps it from
opening when jostled in a tote bag.
FWIW, the joints on my tool are still stiff and there has been no
discernable loosening since I bought the knife.
I still like the knife and have no plans to replace it with anything else at
P.S. Peggy, Can you add the company name, Buck Knives, to your report and
the URL, http://www.buckknives.com/ , as well? Check your other Owner
report, too - this info might have been missing there as well. Thanks, Mara
