    I had the 16340 version of that light back in the day. Great light for its time.

    Did it look like my third picture? Was probably the same light.
    Picture 1 shows it with the extention tube for 14500/AA batteries.
    In picture 3 the extention tube is not installed and it runs on 16340/CR123 batteries.

    I missed that the first time, it is indeed the same light. I really liked the form factor and aesthetics of that light. A little large for a 16340 light though.

    Interesting looking scales on that SAK, are they rubberised or hard shiny plastic ones? I'm guessing that it's a Vic SAK or maybe it's not??

    It is a Manker E03 Nichia with an Olight Head Band.
    I had the extra Head Band and the one that comes with the Manker is like SandPaper somehow?

    Really nice little light/Nugget!

    I was afraid that the Diffuser would be just a gimmick and would fall off if used but the thing is pretty amazing really and I used it last night and it works too!
    Not as flexible as the ZL maybe but there are 21 levels of Moonlight to easily choose from too!

    The SAK scales are not rubberized, but not slick either. They are nylon that has a slightly textured feel, then the tread pattern gives even more grip.

    Thanks, did you buy the knife with them already attached or are they an 'upgrade' made by someone else maybe??

    I purchased them separately. They are made by Remade Knives on Etsy. He does them for 84mm and 91mm with two different patterns and a few different colors.

    I hear you, I have 3, 2 from 2011 a EDC 120 Clicky and 170T. Also I have a 200 High CRI I brought 2 years ago. I don't carry them at all anymore. I dropped my 170T a few months ago at church when I pulled my keys out my pocket and thank goodness I went by the next morning and got found it. Ive lost a ZL SC600W L2 mk2 and to much dismay a Foursevens Mini Mk2 in copper from pulling out my keys. Im going to invest in a gear retractor before I carry them again.

    That Sucks!
    I have lost a Convoy S2 from the pocket and many others that I seem to misplace with some regularity and I am also cautious to carry the pricier lights as I know I will do the same?
    Just this morning I found my 2nd Streamlight ProTac 1aaa of course after I have already bought another to replace it!

    Had the same experience with my Ra Twisty hi-cri and neutral 4sevens miniAA. The Twisty (now a B.o.B light) was lost at my plant a few times but always recovered. The mini was lost for 5 years until I found it moving out of my previous home. I love clips lol.

    I lost mine in Roanoke at a gas while moving my parents to the mountains. I liked that mini

    I apparently fallen into the Rovyvon hole.

    Recieved the Aurora A5 this week and became torne between the A5 and the A8 so for now I carry both in my pocket.

    The S2r2 lives in my coat for when outside...

    If the A5 had a Moonlightmode I think it would be my choice since I find the red side LED on the A8 a bit to bright....

    I've been using this light for some time now. Has a few modes but I like the moon and turbo setting.
    I think 25 lumen to 600 lumen, neutral white.
    10440 battery.
