I'm looking forward to this new knife and would like to get it for my brother for his birthday.

Any scoop on when in March it is slated to be available?

Have to go to REI to pickup a Ritter pocket survival pack that's waiting there. Spring is in the air, must shop.

Doug -- where all do you expect it to be available in April?

Do you think REI will carry it?

I recall reading that this knife would be more widely available.

The lights are currently available at
http://www.lifeviewoutdoors.com/store/flashlights/egear/

I bought a few of them last fall. Nice for their intended use!!

I'm still awaiting word on a lower-cost source for the batteries.

Just to be clear, again, these PICO Lites that Mike is selling are from a pre-production run and the production lights will have a number of tweaks, including a better means of loading replacement batteries and a more compact, more robust, and nicer looking clip, as well as a few other very minor changes that will not really be noticeable to most folks. OTOH, these first PICO Lites may be collector's items someday. grin

The production PICO Lites are at least a month away, perhaps two.

It's in the works and will be announced with distribution of the production PICO Lites.

I have one of the pre-production lights, and am quite impressed. I keep checking daily on the mk5...I preordered it, and wait patiently, checking every day!
