    Thanks Jolig.

    As a note to anyone interested - any orders placed between now and 5PM Thursday will be shipped by Friday. I will be away after this week and lead time on new orders will be three weeks, so if you're looking for a light in the short term right now is the quickest turnaround. I've still got a few of these left.

    Thanks folks, I hope you enjoy your lights.

    It's a shame this is a limited run. If there were ever a perfect CR123 backup light, this is it.
    Five months and I'm still eyeing these darn things.

    I never thought I'd have a Ti light that Troy doesn't have!!

    They're fantastic boys. Perfect size for pocketing and easy one handed operation with flawless Muyshondt knurling.

    There are still a few of these left; If you're on the fence about it, once these are gone that's it for the Nautilus.

    All the best,

    Ooooh, you'll like it Dan, they're super nice. Just about the right size too; small enough for pocket carry but large enough for easy one handed operation.

    Thanks! You know, I EDC a light that has a very "clandestine" name but sometimes it's fun to rotate the pocket bling for business suit wear. I pre-ordered the Aeon MkII, but have watched this little Nautilus since Enrique made them available back in March. Enough well respected members have sung the praises of this little light for years - I figured it was time to break down and see what all the fuss was about. Especially since they are about to be history!!

    Howdy Folks,

    I'm planning on having all currently ordered lights, and any orders placed between now and Thursday night, built and shipped by Friday, so most of you should expect to see them in early next week.

    Rummaging through storage last week I came across a drawer of parts with some older mods (an MC-E Nautilus, some anodized titanium bits, CR2 Ion stuff) and few sets of built Aeon centers. When I get a chance some of those will become actual Aeons, and a few of the other pieces will see the light of day on the BST as well. I'll also be releasing "modder's sets" of Aeons and Makos that include what you need to build a flashlight excepting the reflector, LED, and electronics, which may please some of the people who have in the past lamented that I've made my lights too difficult to modify once built.

    Thanks everyone!

    Enrique

    I'd love to see the beam on the MC-E Nautilus. (which, by the way, sounds like a ship designation. )

    Great news! Thanks for the update. I'll probably see it by Tuesday, then.

    Thanks for these sales, Enrique!

    It was an exceptionally nice ride, accompanied by beautiful flashlights.

    I'm looking forward to receiving my one and only - hopefully soon!

    UPDATE - surprised to have mine arrive today. Beautiful little light. Built like a tank.

    Isn't the knurling the best ever?! I sometimes have to take it out of my pocket and just fiddle with it. And the Ti on brass threads are Oh so smooth. Enrique's expectations when it comes to machining seem to leave little room for compromise-perfect or no thanks. All my lights from him are spot on.

    Yeah, it's very nice. My buddy Scout24 made the best analogy - it's like the elegance and simplicity of a Rolex. Or a McGizmo, for that matter. Like a Rolex, understated, very high quality, timeless design, built to last multiple lifetimes. I fully expect to pass my 26 year old Oyster Perpetual Datejust down to my son some day. Will probably pass this Nautilus down to my daughter.

    Not the brightest, no disco modes, no programmability - just a virtual guarantee of light when you need it, 2 usable levels, nice beam, and real 'purdy' to look at! I picked up an al Aeon on the marketplace - I'm liking it, too. My hope is that the ti Aeon MkII (yes, I preordered one), with its 3 levels and 219 emitter, will offer a REALLY low low and maybe a bit more 'oomph' on high - the medium would be perfect if set where the low is on the Nautilus. And that 219 beam ought to be awesome.

    So thanks again, Enrique! Great little lights!

    Regarding lubrication: I've found that plain oil works best. (I have a tube of Nano Oil for my brass-on-Ti lights.) The oil re-flows around the threads every time you twist the head, so the titanium threads can't shed the oil permanently, and the oil sticks to the brass threads very effectively. The oil also doesn't trap the metal shavings, but lets them get pushed out of the way, so they don't continue to grind on the threads after the threads break-in.

    Regarding the O-ring: On the two Nautilodes I had (I still have one), the O-rings were fairly loose compared to my Aeons. I discovered that a #016 nitrile O-ring (originally intended for a McGizmo) works perfectly to tighten things up.
