We should start a 30 day Copper Olight Badge in this thread!!!  :think: :think: :tu: :ahhh :D :whistle:
Cool idea!
Slightly Off Topic...
For a real challenge, use one Pen for a month?   :o

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Small knives can do what big knives do, just slower.

I had assumed that before a challenge/badge quest was deemed official that the idea needed to be run by a mod first. I didnt know if all new challenges had to be done a certian way or things like that. Sorry! :cheers:

It sure helps if people run ideas past us, thanks, however we also support self management and can for the most part roll with the flow.

Cool! Thanks! Just didn't want to step on any toes. So assuming that my girlfriend got me the one I mentioned and didn't mistake it for something else, I will post about it tomorrow or Saturday and start the challenge next week just in case someone wants to order one to get here in time (assuming that there are others interested enough to join).

The thumb up your butt is optional :tu: I for one will not be partaking in the butt thumbing

Next time your hands get sweaty roll the light around in your palms, hold it, ect.... It should patina rather quickly.

I came across this video ad thought I'd share it... fast forward to minute 13.34.



It's a video about Adam visiting his blogger friend and goes through stuff on the blogger's desk. One of which are a set of cylinders to illustrate density (100 grams) including led, aluminum, brass and copper. They then have a short chat on patina. Oil and humidity could be a factor...

the olight still stinks, using a Qtip dipped in vinegar on the body, 2-3 times a week maybe it will look cool after awhile:

here's the buck, its brass, patina naturally in its leather holster, wondering if the leather is a factor:

Leather is definitley a factor. If it's been oiled or treated in anyway it will have contribute to a patina for sure.

Leather is most definitely a factor. Leather holds moisture and will cause a patina.
