Wuben i05 10th Anniversary Damascus Steel Flashlight

I don't usually recommend Wuben... but this new upcoming model definitely caught my eyes this week.

 

Comes with 10 trits.

Will the square shape on the battery tube always align correctly with the switch surround when tightened?

Reminds me of the Reylight Ti Lan with a side switch. I like the look of Wuben flashlights and I bought a bunch of their two button flashlights. However, I will never buy their one button flashlights because I can’t get used to any UI that is click and hold to turn on/off. It’s just too counter intuitive when I am so used to Nasil/Anduril/Ramp IOS.

I guess those 10 tritium vials alone will already cost as much as the entire flashlight. I guess I'm out but anyway interested how much it will eventually cost.

I’m sure Wuben will have it priced near the $200 mark. I like it but I don’t $200 like it. I might $75 like it. Wait is that a AA light or 18650? If it’s a AA light I $50 like it.

You pretty much just sold me on it with that comparison lol. I prefer a side switch and I like the quality of Wuben just not their UI on my E05.

I have a Winter Frost Ti LAN with 16 trits I just recently bought and love it. I even expect rear switches with trit lights like that has and my Sunwayman V10r ti with almost as many trits. I want one of Rey’s copper lan now too and now this Oy Vey.

Need emitter and UI data stat lol

I love true Damascus steel.  Makes me all weak in the knees & stoopid, almost as bad as a pretty chick in garter belt & stockings.

 

Almost.

 

I had $40,000.00 worth of Damascus knives stolen during a home burglary in 2010.  Many were one-off customs.  The one I miss most was commissioned by me with Darrel Hibben, Gil Hibben's brother.  Damascus Tanto blade, carbon fiber handle scales wrapped in matching Damascus.  I'd fondle it sometimes just 'cause.

 

Is this flashlight real Damascus steel, or is it a damascene lookalike?  If steel, what are the steels & country of origin?

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

Reylight Ti Lan is my favorite AA light. I love the look and the UI. I didn’t know there’s a copper version.

Actually we will be very lucky if the light would cost as much as 10 vials. Interested depending on price.

Some of the FB posts suggest the light to be around $300 with limited quantity.  For this price, I expect everything to be perfect.

And don’t forget the UI. They need a moonlight mode and good spacing or ramping. I prefer the latter. If it’s the same as their E05 AA I’m out. And 300 for a Wuben is a lot; I don’t know how I feel about that.

If they make this light available for “general public” (with enough money to pay for it Cash ) I just hope it has a similar UI to the forthcoming TO50R!! Innocent

Eh, thats almost AL B.O.S.S. money. Id pass.

Still looking for a basic, thin 14500 light with a fairly simple FET+1 driver, deep carry clip and neutral/warm emitter.

Thats apparently a unicorn right now.
