    Default Jeff Hanko Tribute thread

    Picking up the idea from a member of this forum, I think the wonderful lights Jeff has built over the years, mostly D10 and EX10, deserve a thread where all the lucky owners and fans can express their views and post their photos.

    This is not only a tribute to a great craftsman's work but overall a great and special person. One of a kind.

    Here are mine, but I hope to have more in the near future, once he restart production with his new hardware/workshop.

    A new era of JHanko's is coming up... (I wish)



    D10 -- EX10 -- LF2XT

    A pity the missing posts in this thread... (I just realize)

    It must happened when the new software was installed

    If we can't get the posts back then let's re-do it, and threat it as a new thread.

    Yeah, the EX10 is a ridiculously cool light. That thing with red trits would be like Sith Lord's light saber.

    Let's shake this a little bit.

    LF2XT - 6 yellow trits (a special and unique work from Jeff) and her sister D10 3D - 15 green trits



    Isn't she a work of art?

    Another stuff...

    The head in this Ti LF2XT (run #1 from Steve Ku) was badly treated so Jeff gave it a
    new design and restored a nice look

    These are incredible.

    Must. Have.

    Does Mr. Hanko still make lights? I just did a search and his last post was September of 2010.

    What is that light at the bottom, lying down? Looks like Damascus but the color is all wrong. If it's at all possible I'd love to see a macro shot of that.
    I seem to have misplaced my occipital lobe, and as such cannot search for it. Do you see my dilemma?

    Thanks Zeruel
    (Should miss the suscribed thread when CPF changed the software...)

    brembo: it's a damascus shorty LF2XT (prototype), though it's not easy for me and my camera
    to catch this beauty. I should send it to Zeruel for a really nice shots...

    A new light received these days from a CPF member. Another masterpiece.
    No 3D tail here. Time for magic trits...

    I saw this light in the Steve Ku thread and wondered what the story was behind it. Now I know.

    Looking forward to Jeff getting his new shop set up. My D10 and EX10 needs some company and I have a spare LF2XT that could use a new host.

    I'm not sure he's willing to make a LF2XT host "again"...

    Beautiful collection Lisa...

    We both have 4 JHankos', one of them with no 3D tail and single trit.
    Only one E·X10... The heads' grooves... lots of coincidences.

    But going on Jeff's work, here are a couple of Ti fobs with 22mm trit, enterely hand made
    from a solid bar. A lot of work, indeed for an outstanding result. These are attached to my EDC's since almost a year ago and they look perfect.

    EDIT:
    These are the only two made by Jeff up to date, AFAIK.
    He probably will produce a very limited run some time in the future when his
    new worshop is finished, but that's only my very personal impression.

    Exactly. The 10 blue trits in the 3D tail is amazingly magic in the dark.
    These lights are extremely rare to find for sale as they are pieces of art and Jeff stopped production a year ago (temporarily). Anyway, you might post a WTB thread.
    I hope (wish) he start production anytime and you can get one of these or his new designs.
    I keep patiently waiting...
