    Normally it would be the KT2 for a 9 volt lamp, but that was a KT1 kit I bought.
    I was just going to lable it a "KT" but thought it might cause some confusion!

    It's running a LF HO-M3T & 2x17500

    I like the balance the SW01 perhaps more so than the SW02 gives the KT TurboHead, especially on a C2/C3 body.

    I was kinda hoping that I would find tons of posts either praising my vision of this light, that took me years to finalize or for SF purists to criticize me for desecrating an already beautiful light.
    However I will answer your question.
    Simple answer, because i believe it looks awesome. It's unique and a conversation starter.

    That's better
    I'm still waiting for my cell phone provider to launch a new phone. My previous 2 phones self destructed and I don't have a camera.
    Once I do have that new phone in my hands I will bombard you guys with pics of the new ones that found their way to me.

    Wow, there are some serious collectors out there. I thought I was bad for having four Surefires. I have a KROMA, LX2 Lumamax, C2 LED Centurion and a Saint Minimus.

    Since I might be 1 of 2 people that can pull off this look(all black), and miiiight be the only one to have it functional, I shall share this with you all.
    KT1 with N1, powered by 6v cell. 3P body (had a pristine one, didn't want to remove it from the box for the pic), Cerakoted Armor Black SW01 Fatty.


    The above wasn't to toot my own horn ( ok maybe a little) but was intended to revive this thread and see what other creations people can come up with.

    Interesting. I have the exact same setup with my Strider M2-ST. However My GGAZ TID does not have any laser etched markings. Now the SW01 and GGAZ M2 bezel are on my Taurus C2 body.

    I don't carry my U2 that often, because it's one of my SHTF lights...but, I agree with you acid, when I do decide to carry the U2, it's awesome...the feel, and "comfort" knowing that I have such a reliable light, with the option of any lgiht setting I want, is just...well...comforting!

    Yeah it's the ring feature I love. It's easy to use one handed and it's just such a great light. I don't often carry it just because it's a quality light that needs to be cared for so more often than not I use the L1.
    Still would love the head of the porcupine.

    Thanks, AOW.
    OT - I love the Spydies, and am waiting on a very special one. I'm pairing it with a surefire knockoff with custom selected parts, when it comes in.
    The vintage 6P was happy kind of a fluke. Earlier this year, a local retailer had it on the shelf, in a plastic container, with no box. It seems to be bored, but I don't have an 18650 to confirm. They called it a "6P LED" which, obviously, it wasn't. Since it was out of package, they gave a pretty good discount. I keep going back to see if any more show up - none have. Since I have the M61W, I'm thinking of perfecting it with a McClicky. Then it'll be technologically updated old-school, I guess.

    Warbrick,

    It looks like another costco fiasco...some HAD an old 6P...a non-flashaholic...and bought a newer one, and "returned" the older, outdated portions of the light...

    As for the spydies, I have a limited edition one that I got for free, FROM spyderco...when I was in Iraq, they had a free drawing for a limited edition Native, and I managed to snag one...tan handle, with "Thank you for your service" on one side, and "Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans" on the other...very nice knife...I'm inclined to buy a "user" native, since these knives are so nice, and very funtional...kinda like SF's...they just have that feel...
