    Default Post your Damascus, mokume gane, etc. lights!

    I didn't see a thread on this, so thought I'd start one.

    Da and MG lights can be pretty rare and expensive, but I know there are some out there, so post 'em here!

    Here's my small but growing collection. (I have two more Da on the way so will post an updated photo when they arrive):

    From left to right:

    Steve Ku 40 DD 10180

    Tain Ottavino 10280

    Lummi Raw 14250

    Tain Ottavino AAA

    Photon Fanatic one of a kind custom etched mokume gane CR2

    There is a thread like this but it's pretty damn old, if you search for it you can definitely find it

    Thanks, I'll look for it.

    Is this it? It was in General Flashlight Discussion, not in Collecting:

    It only had a few posts and photos so I guess this thread won't see much action compared to the others. But there were some nice lights there.

    Yeah that's the one!

    Can't believe it's been that long and I actually had something to post in it. I don't know why that thread never really took off when there's quite a few amazing lights in Damascus and Mokuti

    That's great to hear. Hopefully the CPF bros with them will post photos here. Who doesn't love Damascus or MG?

    Here's a photo of my mokume gane light before it was etched. In some ways I think it's even more beautiful:

    An updated photo with a new arrival, the V.3 Ottavino AA, second from the right, next to the big Thud Chameleon. Note the closer grain on the new one:

    Thanks, Ven, I'm glad you like them.

    I'm finally slowing down a bit, but there are still some lights out there that I lust after.

    LOL

    You're welcome!

    I think I've posted most of everything, but I still have a few photos and maybe even threads left. Will get those up in the next few days or so. Thanks again and glad you're enjoying the lights.

    I was wondering when you'd pop in RG. What about beads? I know you must have some.
