Here’s a tiny (read: major) update to my Hanko Machine Works (HWM) Trident 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.
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!
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!
