    My thoughts:

    Driver
    same as Lan and Piineapple with 3 modes

    No clip
    Trits
    3
    1
    3x11mm in the middle
    2 1.5x6 on the sides

    Definitly a pre-sale and Count me in for one.

    Also thinking to carve a hole the middle, and make 2 1.5*6 beneath it on the tail surface.

    I meant the design, but not in Ti material.

    the following would be great:

    - tailstanding ability is very important - especially since it is an AA!
    this will be a great light to keep by the bed if it can tailstand for forays around the house when wants a little light to see by, and with trits to help find it in the dark.

    - clicky like in the LAN
    - LAN driver, with exact same 4 modes (it is easy to advance very quickly through them to the desired level)
    - the latest reflector and LED
    - regarding trits - perhaps like the LAN on the head - 3 around the light, and a few around the bottom in the outside grooves that already seem to be there (maybe a few more grooves could be added - same size trits as in the head) and maybe one in the switch, as in the LAN.

    I think tailstanding is far more important that placing trits on the flat surface of the bottom of the light.

    If this ends up not being a clicky, then it could tailstand in this way -- check out the bottom of lights such as the Lumintop Ant -- this still would allow for a trit and a way to put a split ring in place, and since it is an AA, the triangular configuration on the bottom of the Fenix E99 Ti would I think allow for a trit slot as well.

    I love the LAN - and all the features is has.

    Old HDS lights had the body tapped for a clip like this:



    People that didn't want a clip used the holes to mount a lanyard attachment. You can see some of the various attachments here, the bottom clip is a standard bezel up clip, one above that is a deep carry bezel down clip and in the top left is the lanyard attachment:

    Thanks for the pics. Wondering what is in the head? Doesn't the two holes touch anything inside the tube? unless it is really thick.

    HDS lights are kinda bulky, 18350 sized running off a 16340. Thick walls etc, the focus is on durability, not compactness.

    No one has taken into consideration the softness of moku u can drill and tap holes all u want for a pocket clip most likely just pull out

    Trits or not,
    Tailstand or not,
    Clip or not,
    I'm gonna buy the mokume gane reylight, I love everyone of my Reylights so far so I'm sure I'll love it too

    I dont see how it can be softer than copper and there's plenty of screw mounted copper clips.

    Rey, for what its worth I like the design and size of this one:

    I do suggest a black or darker clip to match the Mokume better

    Yes,
    I do like the clip like many others do, except the softness of Ti, trying to make a steel version. There isn't room (thichness) for drilled clip, a spring is in it. Might do clicky and detachable tail, like the LAN did.

    This is ok, Iím not very picky. I think Oveready uses a spring steel of sorts over Ti, probably for similar reasons.

    An ideal fancy AA light IMO is high Cri (219b 4000k is my preference), tail switch, tailstands, floody beam profile, pocket clip and has a moonlight mode with some tasteful trits.

    Your designs hits almost all those points so Iím sure Iím going to love whatever you come up with.

    Looks promising. Its a great shame about no tailstanding though (in my opinion)

    Although in this the copper was also etched and the nickel silver polished, you can see the idea -- here in a Photon Fanatic light:
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...me-Gane-Killer

    And here, in George's very recent Nucleus, note the Mokume light after a short bit of time and the patina -- just brass and copper do not have as much contrast; you can see all three metals here in his light - scroll down to the Mokume one:
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...opper-Complete!

    Hope you decide to keep the nickel silver in this light.
    Perhaps the particular bar stock used in the sample did not have as much of the nickel silver consistently interwoven in the pattern, or as much nickel silver as other bars might. IMO the silver adds an important visual aspect.
    +1
    copper and nickel silver!

    Hey Rey, check out the clip on the Manker Timeback II. It is machined from Ti, and held on by one screw. Something like that might be cool. It could even be machined from the same material as the flashlight. I recently ordered a replacement clip for my Spyderco Techno machined from MokuTi, so it's being done.

    Thank you. I tried that light. The clips is really heavy and hard, very little stretch.

    It doesn't look from the design like the tailstand would be very secure. It looks like it could topple over easily.
    I would prefer for the whole tail to be completely flat at the bottom.

    Would you be able to make some lights without any clips for those that would prefer them without and others with clips for those who prefer them?

    I'm in the former camp of preferring this particular light in such an exotic material without a clip. Unless its a really special and well thought out clip both in looks and function, its only likely to detract from such a nice light.
