    Although I could respect PB's decision to change their mind and charge going forward, I think its totally out of order to prevent all the images, already assembeled prior to this in people's collections, from being shown.

    As people are pointing out on the websites, there are cheaper or even free alternatives. So I'm not sure this is going to succeed. But it's their decision either way.

    You're welcome. I'll do another when I get the black rainbow PVD.

    A new Timascus and mokume gane top arrived recently (far right on top), so I took an updated group photo showing my mokume and Timascus tops, two Timascus spinner end caps, and my Photon Fanatic mokume gane lights.

    Thanks!

    The new M3 technology offers many more possibilities for fans of mokume gane. It's not really folded or layered metal, but has a similar appearance so you'll see it referred to as "M3 mokume gane."

    This is is one of that sites that offers it and has photos and info on it:

    This link shows some of the patterns and colors that are available:

    Fantastic magellan. Thanks for the M3 links and the great images of your lights and tops/spinners. Its making me wish that I had taken the opportunity to buy some Timascus lights when they were available.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed them!

    I just have the two Tim lights, but hope to add more in the future, as well as other Timascus or Mokuti items.

    In fact, I just bought this Tim mini-tool on eBay. I missed them when they were first offered on Kickstarter, when they were a lot cheaper for early supporters, so I decided I couldn't miss out this time. I also bought a 3-layer mokume gane "marble." I'll post an updated group photo when they arrive.

    For now, here are the individual photos:

    Flashlights made with M3 don't even need an LED to look good! LOL

    Haha! So true.

    And likewise I don't even care if the pens can write. :-)

    A couple of more photos of George's mokume lights. The fork and spoon make a nice setting for them. The mokume and exotic wood light is already showing some patina.

    https://imgbox.com/QQz5Oc7Z

    https://imgbox.com/zUeLciQk


    The pen is a Matthew Martin mokume and zirconium model.

    The grayish slab is a piece of black and gray M3 cobaltium "mokume" stock. (Not really mokume as it uses a different process, but it looks like mokume and is sometimes referred to as "M3 mokume").

    The mokume spoon and fork are also very nice and I bought on eBay from India.

    The copper ball is the Kickstarter Copper Orb (which came in other metals too, like titanium and stainless steel, but I like copper).

    My two mokume TnC lights along with a few new mokume and Timascus arrivals.

    https://imgbox.com/ziAzhHlO

    The new objects are a William Henry mokume money clip with desert ironwood inlay, a Billetspin 3-layer mokume "marble," a mokume pen from Volderworkshop in England (looks like Timascus but isn't), and the Kickstarter "Fat Fly" Timascus mini tool.

    Beautiful as always. I wonder what process was used on the Mokume pen to create those colours. It would be great to use as a finish for Mokume flashlights too, particularly if its durable.

    It sure would. I'd like to know more about it too. I bought it on Etsy. I might try contacting the seller.

    A photo of George's new black PVD rainbow Nucleus with a new Timascus arrival, a Darrel Ralph pen.

    I'll do a photo with the Timascus Nucleus soon.

    I didn't think I'd be able to take a good enough photo to show the rainbow effect on the Nucleus. :-)

    Again, thanks much for the kind words.

    I've finally run out of new mokume and Timascus stuff to photograph, but when I receive my new zircu-ti lights from George I'll post those. I'm going out of town for a week and a half so it'll have to wait till I return. But I'll post them then.

    Come to think of it, there is one more thing that I just ordered from the maker. But it won't be here for probably a month. In the meantime here's the maker's photo, a Swiss Army knife with mokume scales.

    Just realized I hadn't taken a close up of my regular Damascus Nucleus. Shown with my other small Damascus light, the Steve Ku model 40DD 10180 light. The copper spinner is a DigiFunk model.

    I used to think no one would ever make a Damascus flashlight smaller than the 10180 size Steve Ku, let alone a mokume or Timascus, but George proved me wrong on that. :-)

    Damn, that's a nice collection. One for every day of the week, and then some. Have to match metals with the rest of your outfit after all lol.
