Absolutely an amazing collection. How well does titanium hold up as a work light? Do they show much wear? Thanks

Beautiful collection, luxlunatic. Some beautiful lights there, especially the Tain 3-piece Hyperlux and the AlTIN Haiku with 2-cell body. Is the Arc-Mania light right at the back also Ti?

Thank you, easilyled.
To answer your question, yes and no!
Yes it is Ti (a big hunk at that) and no, its not actually an ArcMania light but a "tribute" in the same vein the Tain is!!
This is a one-off, a project initiated by, I believe member tobypra and made by custom knife maker, Steigerwald.
It is based on the SuperFlashlight V design with some slight tweeks, most notable is that the head is built around the dimensions of a SureFire D36 drop-in and it accepts 18mm cells instead of the V's 17mm. It also has trits around the tail and in the anti-roll collar, the V had none.
The body differs a bit having 3 sides where the V had 2 and the collar has 5 points and the V has 4. Oh, and this bezel has 6 points where all ArcMania lights have 5.
Really, really quality machining on this one as well as a fantastic bead-blasted finish. That with the upgradability of a D36 makes it a permanent resident of my collection.

Top shelf, luxlunatic. Top shelf, indeed! I wouldn't touch any of those without wearing a pair of white cotton gloves, and your permission of course. :grin2:

I'm not surprised that you value it so highly. Its certainly extremely rare and looks great as well as being easily user-upgradable. Congratulations in acquiring such a beauty. :)

Magnificent! Especially considering the short time you’ve been collecting.

I’d be happy to if he’ll line ‘em up. :)

In the meantime, this is a photo of my AAA collection, many of them titaniums, in a beautiful display case given to me by Rich. (I posted this a while ago on the AAA thread so some of you might have seen it there already).

Amazing. You probably have more AAAs than I have lights ... and beautiful ones too.
That's a lovely display case too. :)

:banghead:

Despite two separate requests to leave it alone, I've had to remove a bunch of rude foolishness

It would be a shame to have to lock this thread
