Going from strength to strength, Laulima Metal Craft is illuminating the way forward with the Hoku, which is a compact twisty flashlight powered by a 10440 (flat top) 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 is built. The FET driver is programmable and delivers up to about 500 lumens.
Like the iridescent North Star itself, this Hoku features a parabolic reflector, which helps gather the light and focus it out the front – resulting in a beautifully even, artifact-free throw of flood light that makes navigating in a dark a breeze.
Complementing the milled titanium body is your choice of copper or brass engines, along with an option for a Satin Vial Variant, which comes with a satin-finished ring with milling that allows you to install tritium vials. A titanium pocket clip with a subtle laser logo completes this irresistibly sleek and stylish light.
A true labor of love from Mitch Lum and Josh from Dawson Machine Craft, this 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 will lead the way.
