    I've been buying a few tritium "lanterns" and beads here and there. Here's what I have so far. They will end up on keychains.

    Hi Pete. This is number 2. My daughter "stole" the last one. (I'm referring to your lantern, of course) :) Love them!

    I have the fluted 3-window from Krypto in brass. It's nice. I wish I had of ordered copper instead.

    I love Serge's work.

    Does Serge use a sleeve or just a trit?

    It's smaller than the others and has such tiny little holes that it's difficult to tell. The fact that it has such a small circumference makes me think it doesn't have a sleeve. More of a concern, there doesn't appear to be any way to remove and replace the trit. So, once it burns out, I guess that's it. All of the others have a small removable screw that enables the trit to be replaced.

    Wow. Didn't know that. Takes away from the final product. I have a habit of swapping around trit colors.

    Re Serge lanterns - no sleeve, and the trit is easily replaceable by removing the split ring.

    Do you just collect them or do you use them with stuff?

    I'm desperately waiting for Steve Ku to produce his spiral design. That would be my grail lantern.

    As funny as it sounds, the only turn off with Serge is the antiqued look. I would prefer it to antique with me. :D
