    I absolutely love the splash anodized SFIII. I'd love to buy a PD in splash anodized blue.. does anyone know if Don's ever done this or if there are any such beasts?

    Those are all awesome. Do the brass lights make your hand stink? Are they too heavy? Have they tarnished? I was considering a brass light, but I've had a brass handled knife that stank.

    Default Re: Some of my "special" lights...

    Well, I have very limited frequent use with these light as I don't EDC them, so no noticable stank issues here . Are they heavy...well, yes compared to aluminum or titanium. These little guys are still easily portable though. Bigger lights would probably be a bit cumbersome. As for tarnishing, yes they develop a tarnish/patina from use, but I find that it adds character to some lights and is easily polished away if so desired.

    You have some amazing flashlights. I particularly like the nickel Aleph 3 and chrome McLuxIII-PD. Also, great photos.

    Added some lights to the top. Also, changed the "Mut's" description as its gone from incan to LED.

    And I still have a plethora waiting in the wings...

    Actually it's a toss up between the TM and the "Mutt". Two very different, very bright lights. I was surprised to say the least.

    Added a slew of pics. Most of the new lights are only hosts for now. That is until I find some free time... Many more lights still awaiting parts and assembly.

    Let me just say I'm a big fan of custom anodizing. Huge thanks go out to trivergata and EricMack for giving me my fix.
