Fire­fly-al­ways Vis­i­ble

Knives Illustrated - - Points Of Interest -

Fire­fly is a pro­pri­etary ma­te­rial that pro­vides 8-10 hours of glow from 30 min­utes of di­rect sun­light. The bright-col­ored resin makes it highly vis­i­ble in dim or dark light­ing. Dan said that hav­ing chunks sus­pended in the han­dle in­creases the sur­face area of the glow ma­te­rial (rev­o­lu­tion­ary in that all oth­ers, only the out­side sur­face glows). Also, light pass­ing in and out gives greater per­ceived glow. Fire­fly is very re­sis­tant to the el­e­ments as ev­ery­day use items. Small pieces that have been drilled out are be­ing tested as ham­mock at­tach­ments to help see the lines in the dark or as zip­per pulls for a back­pack or pouch. Dan men­tioned that they would make handy trail mark­ers, as well.
