Up for sale is my KuKu Volere (1 x AA) light that has been refinished by JHanko. When I received this light, it had a diamond etched and anodized finish applied to the body and clip (not by Ku, the first owner did this). Photos of the finish as I received it are below. I sent it to JHanko to see if he could work his magic and restore it at least somewhat close to its original state. And in usual JHanko fashion, he exceeded my expectations. All smooth surfaces of the light were redone to remove the ano and etching, and the knurling was polished to remove as much of the ano as possible (my original request, not thinking any of it could be removed). Only the slightest hint of some ano remains in very small areas of the knurling, and only when looking at it in just the right angle/light. The clip was hand polished by me to remove 99.9% of the etching and all of the ano. The first owner had also modded the pill with glow epoxy to completely surround the emitter, giving a nice glow effect around the emitter. This glow epoxy was not removed in the restore process. There is a blue trit installed in the rear switch.
Sorry for the above length, but I want to present this light for sale with full disclosure.
