    Old joke in our family since I was a kid is that every birthday and Christmas somebody is going to to get a knife and/or flashlight.

    Last week my wife asked me to clear out the van as we were heading to the beach. As I was cleaning up I found this package and I took it to my wife and asked "was I supposed to see this"

    Her reaction led me to believe I was not suppose to see it. She told me she got it for me as a stocking stuffer and forgot it was in the van. I asked if I had to wait until Christmas to open it. LOL

    Well for starters as you can see in the picture it is a Maglite Gerber EDC series set.

    The knife is a Gerber US1 pocket folding knife, that has a blade made from 420HC American steel and the handle is a glass-filled nylon handle that has a textured rubber overmold.

    This is the US1 next to my Swiss Army

    It is not easy to see but there is a thumb grip in top of the blade and the finger cut out makes it easy to hold firmly.

    In this picture you can see how thin this it is and on the package it says the US1 will fit in coin pocket of your pants.

    You can see more information here at Gerber's website

    The flashlight is a Mini Maglite LED AAA

    It comes with 2 AAA batteries and a clip that you can attach for your shirt pocket. The flashlight does have a adjustable beam and is 100 lumen bright. With this flashlight I can light up a whole room easily, and the and flashlight converts into a candle by removing the head and setting it on a surface and placing the flashlight end into the head.

    The package says the batteries will last 3 hours and 45 minutes. I wonder if it will last longer with lithium batteries.

    Thanks for looking and

    GOD Bless you and your families

    That is awesome right there. And funny stuff. You drive a VAN! :18::18::18:


    Actually, I drive one too. Live in one pretty much during the summer. Big old white creeper van. :)

    But, to the topic. Merry Christmas! It has happened to me more than once, but it is usually ME buying something for a gift and forgetting to give it to them, and then finding it much later. :)
