Thread: Lets See Your Sapphire

    Default Lets See Your Sapphire

    Show me your Sapphire. I just contacted Don about getting one of these. Would like to see how they patina over time. Also like to see how people carry them, currently contemplating just putting on keyring or using a lanyard to carry separate.

    Also, what battery have you been using?

    One of my most prized lights is my rare Sapphire Mule HI CRI. I think Don made only a handful of them. There’s a cool thread around here somewhere about that tiny run. Makes the most beautiful low output flood beam!

    Just find a cool bead, and put it on with paracord.

    Had mine on my car keys for about 6 years, from memory. Looks to be wearing well.

    No idea how to post a pic to this forum

    To answer one of your questions, I use Energizer “Ultimate lithium” AAA batteries. Last for ages and no leak risk as you get with alkaline (AFAIK)

    I kept forgetting to post this - my Sapphire Mule. A rare bird indeed!

    Nick,

    How do do you carry your Sapphire, necklace lanyard, key ring/chain? Love the Ano on that Haiku batt. Pack, nice!

    To be honest, I very rarely carry this particular light, as its rarity makes me worry about losing it. Don has stated he will not make more than the 20
    In existence. I have been just recently thinking about whether I should get another Sapphire, perhaps the cool Hi CRI emitter, for general use and abuse. They are So pretty and feel great in hand. Or do I fish a fresh E01 out of my bugout bag and shove it in my pocket? It doesn’t provide the same pride of use and ownership, but at $12 I’m not too worried if I lose one.

    I think the Hi-CRI McGizmo is what I would do. It would be nice to have a second Sapphire to compliment your rare model.
