    Default FS: Five Exclamation Luci in Titanium

    I've made a few Exclamation Luci--large Titanium, now that B@rt has some Trit spheres back in stock.

    These are for sale at $475 each, with a standard hemisphere polycarbonate dome, as shown in the Luce at the far right. However, if you want a flat tap cap instead, that can be made to suit. Or, really, the tap cap can still be made however you might like it, but there would be some additional cost.



    As a reminder, I am selling only the Luce body, the tail cap and a custom machined McR-27 aluminum reflector that is ready to accept an 18mm Trit sphere--which you must source from someone other than me, i.e., B@rt. I will install the sphere if you can not handle that job.

    A a closer look at the anodized Luci:



    L to R: #1 Blue/Purple, #2 Turquoise [SOLD], #3 Gold, and #4 Blue. Let's call the Bare Ti Exclamation Luce #5.

    Note that these Exclamation Luce will have the exclamation mark properly oriented when the Luce is placed head down, i.e., the reflector pointing to your table. The Bare Ti Exclamation Luce has the exclamation mark oriented so that when you hold it in your hand, it looks normally aligned.

    Price: $475, shipped First Class worldwide for free. Shipping elsewhere will be at cost of the service you choose.

    PayPal to: fanatic@photonfanatic.com, please.

    Thanks.

    For what it's worth, mine is still rockin' hard, after 5+ years.

    And for those who aren't CPF old-timers , here's my half-technical simulated Luce runtime chart:



    I'm glad I already have one, cause these are wicked sexy!

    Hi Fred,

    Maybe Not the right Place to ask, but do you offer a less expansive EDC Version of this?

    Best regards!

    I'm not sure I'd want to say the Luce de Notte is designed for EDC. :-)

    It is really meant as a nightstand accessory, to let you find your way in a dark room at night.

    But, yes, there are certainly less expensive varieties of the Luce--here is the current price list for the Luce de Notte body--you still need to buy the Trit sphere.

    Luce de Notte Body Prices as of November 2012


    Standard 6061 Bare Aluminum -- $170 grooved & dimpled
    Large Bare Aluminum -- $180 grooved & dimpled
    Standard Brass -- $180 grooved & dimpled
    Large Brass -- $200 grooved & dimpled
    Standard Stainless Steel -- $275--with grooves & dimples
    Large Stainless Steel -- $325--with grooves & dimples
    Standard Titanium -- $350--with grooves & dimples
    Large Titanium -- $400--with grooves & dimples


    Note, the 11m sphere will fit in the standard size Luce.
    The 15mm and 18mm spheres require a large Luce.
    Customer specific designs are priced according to complexity, i.e., how long it takes to machine the design.

    Fred,

    I definitely would like to by a large Luce de Notte for a 18mm sphere. Are they all BTO or do you have some in stock? Otherwise I would opt for a large brass one with knurling.

    Thanks!

    The only Luci in stock are these Exclamation Luci, so anything else would be built to order.

    I'd suggest you e-mail me to discuss pricing, etc. My e-mail is in my signature below.

    A rather nice way to store a custom Luce de Notte--the only bare Ti that I've been asked to make:

    Fred, the Luce are things of beauty. Are you still making these on-demand?

    I wish but I doubt it. There are no more sources for tritium spheres.

    Thanks badtziscool, I remember seeing these Luci a few years ago and, even then, it was tough to source the spheres. I guess it hasn't changed.
