    I mean, it was one of the bezels marked with "I.C.E." rather than one with PK's logo.

    My rarest light is a black Dorcy 1AAA keychain model, without the fish-eye lens.

    In this case, "rare" definitely doesn't equal expensive.

    I have a dive light my dad made from PVC pipes back in the 80s. It has a lens almost 1/2" thick, external batterypack and a magnetic switching ring.

    Some more rare Ti customs:



    From the left:

    Ti Blocky Boy prototype, the only one. PhotonFanatic made this as the prototype for a run of aluminum Blocky Boys.

    McLux III Ti-XR19-C

    McLux III Ti-XR27-PD Only a few of these were made.

    McBulk, the only one. Made by ArsMachina. He started with the control module from an aluminum Cub, and made a Ti jacket for it. Then he took a 27S head and trimmed it down on the lathe (compare to the XR27 next to it). Finally a pure smooth 18650 tube.

    Ti LionCub. One of 8 or 9 known to exist. This one has been modded by ArsMachina. He opened up the bezel on his lathe, "to let more photons escape," added an McR reflector and an SSC P4 emitter. CR123 or RCR123 body.


    17500 Ti tube (On the right), grooved to match the original LionCub head.

    They were sold through Porsche so I'd guess a batch of several thousand

    Hey Mr. Green ... of course I am. Seldom are the chances I can do so though.
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    That's one of the coolest lights I've ever seen, how does the snakeskin hold up from normal use?

    +1 .... Supercool

    The snakeskin is thin, so not as durable as cowhide. The rubber button is still under the skin on the end. If it eventually does wear out, it can be easily replaced, but under normal use, this should take a long, long time.

    I've got one of the AlTiN S27-Cs...I think there's only about three in the world. I'll try to get some pictures in the next day or so - finally some of that beautiful "golden light" is breaking through here in the rainforest.

    Bernie, this is one of the best looking flashlights I've ever seen. The overall body shape is fantastic. Very nice!

    That has to be one of the most unique and amazing lights that I have ever seen. Amazing work!

    I also have one of the AlTiN Mules. Point of clarification -- there were 5 of them, not 3.

    This is my rarest and most treasured light. It's a true one of a kind AND a user:

    McGizmo LunaSol with red & yellow 3mm LEDs, orange trit and Atwood anodize. All customization on this light was done by Don and Peter.

    More info on this light here.

    I have an E1E with the head threaded fit Aleph light engines. Don't know how many are around, was modded by Chop and I bought it from Darell. I can send pics if somebody will post them for me.

    Yes, this one is a true gem.
    However, the body is a standard Aleph 2x123 body and the tailcap a standard McClicky tailcap, both made by Don. So one can easily acquire those.
    The one thing unique to this light is the head.

    Bernie, you lucky dawg!, i cant believe Don had a garage sale and i missed it. Serves me right for being away from CPF for a while. I hope you keep those pieces and never let them go, they are an important part of CPF history.
    If you look at Don;s lights, you can see a lot of his ideas are being implemented today, but they appeared as protos many years ago.

    My addition to the rare aleph section:


    One of (I believe) 10 2x123 bodies in natural HA that came with the clip installed and a ti tail.

    The head is from the same garage auction mentioned earlier. Aleph 1 head w/3 tritium vials mounted in slots around the fin. Don't know how many of those were made.

    Unique is the size of the trit. "Standard" 5mm vial above for reference.


    Came with this reflector, anyone know anything about it?


    Came loaded with a downboy and an led of unknown bin...pretty clean white, and bright. U bin maybe? Reflector allows for a really nice amount of spill along with a tight hot spot.
