This wonderful LF2XT just arrived here less than an hour ago. When I saw Daniel's post on this light
I was not in the market for another JH custom but as I told Daniel, this very same light caught my eye
in an older photo posted and was a deciding factor in my decision to go ahead and order one for myself
so I knew I'd regret passing it up. The light in question is the one with blue & red vials and I think it makes
an interesting contrast to mine as the clip, flutes and finish are different. I'd like to thank Daniel for a painless
deal & the fast and careful shipping. Please excuse the sub-par photos taken with a small sensor P/S camera
and no tripod to boot!
Those are great photos, Arturo, and beautiful lights. Thank you too for your part in a very pleasant transaction - and also for providing a great home for the gem that Sean and I both had the pleasure of enjoying for a while.
Ok this thread was a bitter sweet experience. Bitter because I know I'll never get to touch some of the more rare works, but sweet because I got to see them. Furthermore, I am very lucky to be able to snag one from Daniels collection. I hope to complete that transaction tomorrow.
Nice pics guys. I killed about two hours, off and on, hunched over my iPhone drooling over some of those lights....
Yes, Ryan. Mokume Gane from custom knife maker and Mokume Gane expert Mike Sakmar. Will post more photos once the light is ready.
It is quite interesting, that like Damascus... The final look of the material will be remarkably different after machining and etching. I'll be going for a deep etch, so the results should be interesting.
I just received this light in the mail last night and I am ecstatic about it! The quality of his work is not hype, it's real. The gunner grip needs to be felt to understand how awesome it is. I find myself running my fingers over it all the time. The stone wash finish is truly beautiful (my light was in the tumbler for SIX days!). My light is a twin to Arturo's light and the clip? It's crazy to look at it knowing that it's a machined piece and not bent into shape.
I have had experience with Jeff's work on my 007 Turbo Head, but the LF2XT takes it to a whole new level.
