    It's on a piece that doesn't get much handling, since the exposed area is forward of the hand-grip, but other than some slight browning of the exposed copper I see no change in the finish. I had to use a green Scotch-Brite pad to remove the blackening to get the two-tone finish visible in the pictures, and the scrubbed area was a bit shinier at first than it is now, but other than that there's been no change.

    I don't think the patina would remain unaffected indefinitely with the scuffing from sliding the light into a pocket after each use, but it's a good way to get the initial patina set-up, so you don't have to put effort into "helping" a completely natural patina form evenly across the surface.

    Very good, it certainly looks nice, like a brushed antiquing treatment. I like it.

    Haha, thanks. Those are really great for sake or dessert wine. Even better if you frozen them first.

    Particularly like the white one on the lower left and I've got one somewhat like it that I'll put in the freezer now, or quicker yet, outside!

    Well, I am fairly certain that is incorrect given that the 2 o'clock light is a tri EDC also. The head on the light in question is way too small, as is the battery tube for a 123.

    Waiting for the real answer.

    I am certain its a Tri EDC head. The one at 2 O'clock is a TRI EDC but on a knurly 26650 Head. Thats why the head of the one at 1 o'clock looks so small

    Gary please feel free to help us out in here

    wow, It's so much fun to watch your collection change, very impressive. Funny I did see the patterned Tri-EDC shortly after Mac posted it, and then saw that you got it, and now I already see it here, that's what I call super fast shipping Great addition to your already amazing collection. I see you got rid of your colored lights, I really want one hopefully soon.

    I just realized that I have sold 7 of the 10 lights in the OP!

    Not sure what I'm doing all of the time. I have sold some gems.

    I think I have owned every metal type from Mac except a copper light.

    I hope you buy a EDC light from Mac soon JK.
