    WHOA! That is cool. Where did you get it and how much was it? Does it patina? I assume yes, but the pic is so pretty.

    Can't remember where I got it. I was in an ingot buying mood and bought a lot from Jetco; brass, copper, bronze and aluminum. This bar came wrapped in acid free paper and even came with cotton gloves for handling. It's still bright.

    That is WAY cool!!! Dare I ask how much an ingot of copper would cost?

    Edit: Never mind, I checked...not as much as I expected! I may have to get a couple of ingots!

    Some really nice copper stuff in this thread for sure. Does anyone use their copper stuff enough to allow it to become really weathered to the point of green? Would be cool to see.....though maybe too tragic?

    Interesting trend going with copper/bronze items. I'm also in a watch forum and the bronze/copper look is in.

    Love the copper Zippo lighters!

    I was trying out some different polish on my TNC 26650 copper light (I know some people prefer the tarnished look, but I like shiny​), and I couldn't resist taking a picture. It needs a bit of finer detailing in the nooks 'n crannies, but it's still looking pretty good.

    Here is a list of my lights.

    My preference is also for the appearance of fresh, shiny copper, like in your light above. Good job!

    Copper can be so much fun when combined with neo magnets. Couldn't resist linking this. Jump to 0:24 for the good stuff. (Too bad its not mine)

    Copper is one of ths main draws I have had toward collecting lights. I love Ti but something about copper just has an organic quality.

    of your 2 Maratac Cu AAA's, is the one with out the clip the Rev 1 with H-M-L? That's a nice shot of the manufacturing differences...

    The AAA Cu without the clip is the rev 1. The copper light that jumpstarted my search for copper lights and other cool things.
