The North Star
Never settling, 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.
Like the iridescent full moon itself, the Hoku is a "mule", which means there's no reflector. Not only does this make the Hoku even more compact, but it also has a near 180* spill that creates a generous flood of light for illuminating a wider area – perfect for working up close and indoors. The mule bezel includes a glow-in-the-dark spacer to help you locate the Hoku in the dark.
Complementing the copper or brass engines is your choice of different millings on the solid titanium body. Choose from subtle dimples, classic straight grooves or a stylished twist groove. Each Hoku also features features 15 milled slots (6 on the
bezel, 6 on the tail, and 3 on the tail face) that can accommodate 1.55mm x 5mm tritium vials for extra customization.
The brainchild of 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.
