    That RAWEGG S1 looks great. I think yours is the first I have seen done with that method. How durable do you think the patina is?

    This was my first attempt. Seems fairly durable. Time will tell. I will post progress photos after a week or so.

    Easy process: 2 hard boiled eggs, smashed, inside a baggie with the light for 8 hours. I masked the SS bezel and optic for safety sake.

    Looks great.

    Does the the patina eventually fade away from constant handling of the light?

    I've bought a copper and cvd copper with the anticipation that they will increase in value in the future it doesnt seem to me that these are limited runs though

    The Hardboiled Egg patina seems to be mellowing nicely. Very durable.

    I have been using my S1 CU RAW daily and it has been my EDC since I did the patina process.

    Looks great ...

    Probably not but they're still cool. I bought at least one of each to have the complete set.

    This is how my collections looks so far!









    Have the Stock S1 / Polished TI / Raw CU PVD / Rose Gold (CU)

    Currently ordered/on the next order are the Bead Blasted TI/ Raw CU with SS rings/ Raw Brass / PVD Brass runs from Going Gear.

    I feel these are limited as they are numbered on the tail cap. However with 4 digits we can see the run go to 9999. So not SUPER rare but unique enough for me to get in on these awesome flashlights. Need to find a nice case for these to fit into....

    Lookin good. I really like the blue PVD trim on your RAW CU.

    How do you like the egg salad sandwich patina?

    I was amazed at how well mine turned out. I like it.

    Nice flame work on the cap.

    When i took it out of the egg sack, I was disappointed I didn't get a full coverage and thought it was going to look as shitty as it smelled. Cleaning it up and noticing the different patterns and colors of yellow and some red started growing on me. Now there's 2 patina s1's in a 50 mile radius
