Going from strength to strength, Laulima Metal Craft is the back with the Hoku, which is a compact twisty flashlight powered by a 10440 sized battery. A word of warning before we dive in, these are going to go fast. Make your move now if you've been on the hunt for one of these gems!
The name "Hoku" is Hawaiian for "star", the celestial bodies that the Polynesians used to navigate throughout the Pacific. This ethos is reflected in the Hoku's design, which is an ultra-compact twisty (on and off) flashlight featuring your choice of a copper or brass heat sink to which a FET driver and Nichia 219C 4000k single emitter are built. The FET driver is programmable and delivers up to about 500 lumens.
Covering the entire spectrum, the Hoku is available in both the "mule" and "reflector" options. With the "mule", there's no reflector and this creates a generous flood of light for illuminating a wider area – perfect for working up close and indoors.
Conversely, the "reflector" option features a parabolic reflector, which helps gather the light and focus it out the front – resulting in a beautifully even, artefact-free throw of floody light that makes navigating in a dark a breeze.
Machined from solid copper, the Hoku features copper or brass engines along with a matching titanium pocket clip with a subtle laser logo that completes this irresistibly sleek and stylish light.
A true labor of love from Mitch Lum and Josh from Dawson Machine Craft, Laulima Metal Craft is an ode to old-world craftsmanship and modern-day performance. If you're looking for the perfect, do-it-all, heirloom-quality EDC flashlight – the Hoku is the answer.
