    Regarding your variations in etching, the above, high-contrast, thicker layered versions are my favorite! I have a few pieces made from Chad Nichols damascus including his Blackout, Raindrop and Iguana and my favorite is Iguana, which is also a high-contrast and thicker-layered pattern.

    But the bottom line is that every single one of your hosts are a sight to behold... awesome stuff

    In my mind, I wanted a mule in a tuxedo. That's what I got.

    I just got my Blocky Boy Mule. I asked Fred for some special features, including using a standard E series engine pill and McClicky in the tail. So essentially I was intending to run Don's Nichia 119 High CRI light engine inside of a Photonfanatic host.

    What arrived in my mail box was a piece of alien technology which appears to be carved into a single piece of a strange meteor fragment. The threads could not have been done with conventional human equipment, nor could the way that the seam disappears happen without nano cloaking techniques.

    I am at a loss for words when either attempting to express my gratitude to Fred for making me this piece to my silly extra design specifications...or to explain adequately the quality of the piece.

    I send Fred this old XPG engine from Don. I love McGizmos, and I have had as many as four, but am now down to really two...the current Ti mule offering and the Ti PD mule. It is really Don's mule concept that made me flip into a true freak about these things. I just find the lack of a hotspot so useful...and so pleasing to my eyes. Anyway, I really have a bunch of these size pills for playing with, as well as a few very serious engines in this size built by DatiLED and others. So I really want to be able to take advantage of these, esp. the newer ones I have acquired.

    I also wanted to it to eat 18350's. And have a McClicky switch. None of these details, individually or collectively seemed to present any major challenges to Mr. Pilon.

    I think the maker's final photos speak for themselves. And quite frankly, it is a different beast. It sits heavy in your palm...presses in a way that only bulkier lights tend to, so it feels alien. It feels dense...like a cylinder of rock with a light in one end and a button on the other.

    Its length is exactly that of the width of my palm. It can disappear perfectly centered under my four fingers. Ideal.

    This light will be the last host I ever sell, without a shadow of a doubt.

    I win.

    Oh-wow...
    that sir, is a beauty of a light...

    I've been day-dreaming of a mule as well and this one is as good as it gets! I love the way Fred embedded that clicky... man that's smooth!!!

    And nothing beats a well-etched Chad Nichols Damascus...
    ...although maybe a well-anodized Chad Nichols Mokuti will come damn close...
