Cyflect .

A recent request from a customer for his Sig mags based on an idea http://ru-titley-knives.tumblr.com/post/73877632667/cyalume-cyflect-glows-well-in-low-light-and here in 2014.

The cyflect both glints under red or white/ blue  light and glows green in both low and no light settings if charged via either lumens or UV light .

Starlight striker tests, daytime .

 In a field so  probably the best place for field testing my new  Kirinite starlight striker .

As you can see from the state of my LMF Army fire-steel the tungsten carbide eats fire-steels for lunch but it really does produce some amazing hot sparks into the coir matting tinder  probably well above the 5400 degree F mark  .

Prototype Cyflect pouch’s

Just a rough idea but certainly will look into getting some proper versions made up as these were just stitched together about 30 mins ago .

2 sizes of Glint &Glow Cyflect sew on material with Velcro hook &loop closure with technora pull tabs .

The large was sized to take a DPX Gear Danger Tag , and the small x8 10 hour mini chem-lights  the bigger can also take several other similar sized items and the small fitted both a Photon freedom and a universal cuff key .

Ru Titley kit markers in use .

Andrew from http://valleydeepmountainhigh.tumblr.com twin Brother recently completed a Help for Heroes Saharan challenge which included trekking one of the worlds highest sand dunes .

Fitted to his Hill People Gear pack he choose to fit a mini sawn- off Strip -lights (top of pack in first pic )  which he had asked to be prototyped and fitted to the sides a red and green 10 hour mini chem- light holder  as kit markers both of which helped him to keep a tab on his pack in the sever sand storms they encountered .

Post Apocalyptic toxic kit marker .

A meld of Steam and Cyber Punk here in the form of a high and low tech hammered copper amulet /kit marker coupled with Cyalume Cyflect hybrid glint and glow tape .

The copper has been shaped , hammered , etched in ferric and then brass blacked before being rubbed back with wire wool and then riveted .

The cord is natural 3 strand braided sinew which has been dyed using leather dyes , the copper was sourced from old Soviet ordnance crates  whist the Cyflect is from Joe at Lumisafe LTD  .

Prototype Molle Cyflect  ‘Strip Light ’.

Since getting a bit more of this very unique hybrid  highly reflective glint and glow tape made by Cyalume from Joe over at lumisafe.co.uk  Ive started to think on a few new applications for its possible role as a maker for various teams and groups .

This idea fits to a standard 1 inch webbing or PALS grid on Molle vest or pack allowing for a low profile placement on gear but with maximum glint and glow ( please note the sharp corners of the tape will be rounded for a non snag fit ).

 The kydex hardware screw is easily removable to allow the 'Strip light ’ function to be used on standard name/ rank panels or on the morale patch loop Velcro  found on most packs these days and is of course backed with  Mil-spec hook tape .

 Further small GITD , IR, SOLAS or day glint tape dots can then be placed behind the eyelets to further aid signaling or night time recognition .

Standard Cyalume Cyflect  glint and glow and 3M orange Coast guard approved highly reflective personal markers but this time with a little difference.

The difference is the magnetic backing, these can then be placed onto any metallic service to act as markers either as high visual marking aids or as covert tracking markers using IR and NVG’s.

 More to come soon.

Prototype mini Chem light holder .

As Ive got a really good stash of these10 hour light-sticks Ive been trying to come up with various ways to carry them when out N about  .

 This new version uses Mirage Holstex  a thermo plastic similar to kydex and will fit  vertically or horizontally onto any 1 inch webbing found on commercial Civilian  / Military packs , MOLLE / PALS etc.

Simple to attach to straps and remove the dead chem lights from when needed or to simply change over to a different color .

This version also features one of my double sided MK3 personal markers this one in glint and glow Cyalume Cyflet  with reversible 3M orange reflective which aids as a secondary marker or locator  .

I will also be making up a 1.5 and 2 inch version should anyone require some making please email me at rtknives@hotmail.com

Mood lighting !

 Just playing around with a few light enhancements that fit onto my new prototype kydex MOLLE Strip -light .

The glow in the dark & reflective cyalume Cyflect faced  kydex panel will also carry either a full sized chem- light or the mini variety either by zip/ cable tie or shock cord loops  and can also carry one of my covert/ overt APALS  holders should the need arise for more marker identification in low or no light environments for those guys who really need to be seen  .
