    Mac, please could you put us all out of our misery by letting us know whether these 3 have been taken?

    I keep circling back to look at this. I've always loved the way Damascus steel looks, and these lights are a great example of it. I haven't bought a light in a while now, but these have me seriously considering whether I can afford one. I wish there were a way to get one of these for less than $800, though; as gorgeous as they are and as much as I'd love the opportunity to admire it endlessly, that's a really prohibitive price point.

    I wish I could offer them cheaper but the cost alone of material is 16x the cost of Titanium and tool wear is 50 times greater along with triple the machine time.

    Macs lights including the Damascus EDC are a bargain among customs! Based on the response to this thread, I don't think Mac will have any problems selling the Damascus EDC!

    Maybe you could offer them as an ongoing option, then? If the material is as hard as you suggest, I would have no qualms about carrying it, which is all the justification I'd need to start saving for one.

    I never said the material was hard It's surely not soft but just 100 times more abrasive than Titanium.

    Mac, any chance of answering my earlier question about whether the three Damascus EDCs pictured have all been taken?

    Ok ... just for the record I posted an "I'll take it" third on this thread after you revealed the price. (post #27)

    However, this may not be the criterion that you use when working out which people these should go to.

    I posted "I'll take it" second after the pics were posted! I'm just saying . . . Eagerly awaiting email from Mac. . . got my fingers and toes crossed. I think the BB TRI needs a friend! Don't want to miss out on one of these beauties if I can help it.

    Wow. I would've thought only ceramics could do that.

    Wow, these are simply stunning looking lights. Good luck to those that purchase one. I am lucky enough to be one of 5 owners of a Damascus Delghi Iris and to get that one pretty much took my light budget for a while. I have many Damascus knives but to see a hunk of damascus the size that a light is , is pretty damn cool.

    I'm going down the thread in order of which people replied expressing interest as I thought this was the only way to be fair. The first 3 lights are spoken for. I have enough material on the way for 6 more lighs. I will send out PM's shortly.

    *wow*

    This threads reads like a "Who's Who" of high end flashlight collectors. I've rarely seen to much money talk at once.

    And frankly the price seems quite reasonable for such a majestic light! Maybe if my bonus is big enough.....
