    I thought they were gone, but the second site still shows it, so looks like the Ultra-lux will be next!

    I think when you try and put the light in your cart, it throws an error because it's out of stock....

    I have a question since I don't have any Damascus lights yet, are they coated? What prevents them from rusting?
    No such thing as too many flashlights, or knives.................
    No matter what they say.

    A light coat of mineral oil, then wipe off for the carbon steel ones. Even stainless will rust if neglected long enough. But since you have oil in your skin, it seems to keep rust at bay too, as long as you use your lights...

    Devin (Sigma) uses a home brew beeswax and oil mixture.

    Yes. Most of what is called "stainless" these days is technically what used to be called "rust resistant." Most stainless produced is about 13% chromium, but it needs more like 18% to be really stainless, but then there's a trade off in that the steel becomes more brittle. You can also add nickel to make true stainless, but that increases the cost.

    have been slowly trading/selling/aquiring to shift my "Customs" collection to Damascus 18350. Still have 2 Copper (Mac, Sigma) and 2 Aluminum (Both Mac), and these
    still need to bore the DamCham 1mm larger.

    have a few more in the works, and still hunting for a couple others.

    thanks. I fixed the alignment of the switch and trit in the DamCham. They originally came with a spring wire holding the driver it, and it was missing. I made one out of a spring wire key ring piece, and the added ring helps the body not screw down too far...

    and thanks to magellan for letting me buy it back from him...

    It's actually a case for a fidget spinner collaboration
    with Revolvemakers, Chris bathgate and Rinascita Concepts. Rinascita is my company we made the case for the spinner

    It looks like the Damascus was blued in the photo.
