Very cool! What's the benefit of lume on a knife?

On a watch, it makes sense to have Lume, to tell the time. On a knife... Wouldn't you be able to manipulate the opening and folding mechanism entirely by feel? And who uses a knife in the dark? Very cool though. Regardless of the practicality, I like the ... 

Of course there’s no practical reason!

It just makes the knife look cool. The maker even admitted he was just playing around and experimenting with it. (Instagram @torpen29)

Objective definitely achieved! It is cool!

I was just wondering if there was a practical reason that I was missing. Super cool.

I have titanium tritium fobs on my keys, flashlight, and pocket knife

Makes them easy to find in the dark 😉

I've got to try living in darker environs! I like everything very well lit!

I've got too much junk on my floors, I'd trip if it were dark! You know how many coffee table books about watches? Enough to build coffee tables out of them! Now... where did I put that...

Great combo!
