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!

MechForce Tactical Suppressor Turbo Flashlight Review

Since my early days of talking to Mechforce about flashlights, they mentioned doing this 21700 light.  I talked to them a bunch about it but more than anything, I think they took comments (including many of mine specifically) about the MechTorch to heart.  They’ve just released this 21700 light, named the Tactical Suppressor – basically a [Hot Rod in the Turbo format] tube 21700 light.  Read on for testing!

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!

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!

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!
