Hey Rey, you might want to make those larger images 100% wide.

This thread explains how:

Thanks, it is 1920*1080. It looks fine here. Maybe bad on other computers?

Edit: Just updated to 800*450.

It looks great on my computer now.  ;)

If you want it to look perfect on all devices, maybe try the "100% wide trick."

Hi Rey,
Those are really special, I’m glad that you finally are doing the Mokume gane version! (but I’m not sure if I will be in for one, it is quite a lot of money spent)

May I do a suggestion that you are free to totally ignore? I think that the clip does not really fit this flashlight. For a Ti or SS version it may be alright, but in this finish it looks like it does not match the flashlight. Too wide at the top, not long enough, and it does not follow the curves of the light. But I would not know how to do it different and it is a matter of taste really, so take it just as a personal thought of mine.

Thank you very much for the suggestion, it is really helpful. I had some doubt on the clip as well.

Hi Rey.

+1 djozz’s comment. I offer the same suggestion as with Lan Ti clip. Perhaps a longer clip (and deep pocket!) with the contact point at the tube body transition area so that any rubbing marks blend in.

Perhaps something like this (sorry for altering the photo, and the crude Photoshop) -
A Mokume clip wouldn’t be strong enough, but while we’re at it perhaps colored (steel or Ti)?

So is this titanium or brass as flashlight material, the Mokume Gane is just a forging technique for 2 materials to one

From the looks I am guessing it is copper and brass.

So, i’ve learned something new today, mokume gane!
Had to do a search on google, it looks fantastic, but way too expensive for me, this is BUDGET light forum, remember ? Wink

The pattern looks a littlebit static to me, it would be nice that all lights look different due to the process.

The light looks like it has been hydro dipped now.

you cant cover a whole cylinder or any other part with this techique as on the back side the pattern would overlap

Relatively cheap for a mokume light. The colours don’t overly appeal to me though. Does this list indicate that only 15 people are in on the group buy? Has the first 50 pieces been spoken for?

Some people have a larger “budget” than others.
This is not a “sub-$100 flashlight forum”

Also $300 is actually really cheap.
Usually they are $500-1000

Sorry, I forgot to update the number, the first 50 were gone long ago.
