After a few days of carry: A few brief thoughts on the new Thorfire TK05

Hi all,
Thorfire provided me their new TK05 single AA/14500 flashlight the Thorfire TK05 to review and after a few days carry here are my

initial impressions

Pros:
nicely machined – i.e. square cut threads are exact, diamond cut grip is nicely done, no visible machining marks evident
side switch has no evident slop – it feels firm and responsive

Cons:
Lack of moonlight mode in what I consider to be a generally indoor EDC light(For my needs a moonlight mode is rarely needed for an outdoor model but used very often indoors.) A driver similar to used in a Thorfire TK15 would had been perfect for this light (A long press in that light from off brings up moonlight mode)


Please disregard the length shown in the picture. The wonky perspective of the shot throws off the lights dimensions. It is Actually just about ~3.5” in overall length. The light is also thinner then it shows.

My early impression is that this light feels nice in hand and use. In the dark, I can intuitively reach for it in my pocket and locate & turn on the side switch. It feels quite pleasant to use. Despite not being ideal for MY uses with it’s lack of a true moonlight mode (which I only use for my AM night time usage in which I carry a different light) the light feels comfortable enough for me to keep the light in my pocket for the majority of the day.

Thorfire has provided a coupon code for 30% off for BLFers(G8AP923L.) 30% off promo code is now expired. Please use the 20% off promo code: L4SPZS6H

& here’s a link for it’s purchase.

I will update my findings on this light after it has lived in my pocket for a few more days.
