Hanko Machine Works Total Tesseract Trident in Brass Flashlight Review

Today I have an unusual light in for review.  One I purchased myself, with the intention of just enjoying.  But in reality there isn’t much testing or reviewing out there on these, so …. why not a Fun Fund Friday review!  This is the Hanko Machine Works (HMW, or just “Hanko”) Trident “Total Tesseract” in brass.

Deadwood Huckleberry Topo Flashlight Review

It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single.  I jumped on that.  This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later.  Read on!

FocusWorks Eryx F1 Flashlight Review

Today I have a special light.  This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight.  And it’s unusual.  Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light.  It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days.  I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!

Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight Review

I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself.  So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates.  I was excited to snag it, but you don’t have to get these that way.  There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion.  This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.

Venom Orion Flashlight Review

I have a penchant for snagging things I don’t need, which meet the criteria for things I like.  I like brass triples.  This light by VenomDD wasn’t even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it.  (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)

Yes, this is another triple.  Another brass triple.  Does it cut the mustard?  Read on to find out!

ReyLight Lan Ti, CaptRon25 Special, Flashlight Review

I’ve liked ReyLight for a while. I have a Pineapple, and it’s one of my go-to house lights. When CaptRon25 had a custom version of the Lan Ti produced, I was interested. I reached out, and here is the result! This is the polished version.

Okluma DC1 Brass, Custom Flashlight Review

Occasionally I get a wild hair to ask for a bit of a ‘dream light’ for review.  Such is the case with today’s review item.  I sent Jeff at Okluma a message much to my surprise, he had the perfectly light for me!
