Thanks to many members digging up more reference information, the Mr. Bulk Quick Reference Chart is filling out nicely and the Chameleon catagory is now complete!!!!

FF member Osprey Guy recently emailed me the following information in response to my asking him for help with unclear DamCham details which he cleared up nicely. With his kind permission I am posting it here so it will never be lost and available to all.


"For starters...To the best of my knowledge every one of the DC's was nitred blued.  Charlie contracted to have them all blued at one time by the guy who also made/supplied the damascus steel, Delbert Ealy. They were simply heat-blued in a hot oven.  FYI- All carbon-based steel can be blued (as opposed to stainless which can not be blued).  I did not keep records but I believe that I refinished about 6 or 7 of the DC's. I say "refinished because I didn't just nitre blue them, I spent a significant amount of time on each light sanding out all the deep grind scores which were left by the machine shop who made the bodies. It would have been much, much too cost-prohibitive for Charlie to have paid the machine shop to take each light to a fine, polished finish.

My price varied slightly between $175-200...Depending on my workload at the time and/or if I had to put in a little extra sweat due to easpecially deep grind marks. And in a couple of instances I spent more time than usual "playing" with the color."

No, you didn't miss it.  The VIP and Mr. Bulk's earlier lights (Super Baby Pin, etc.) are not shown by shuter on his charts.

As Troy said, "you Didn't miss it"

What drew me to Charlies lights was the thumb activated user interface.  I was very late to the Mr. Bulk party and as I started to try and figure out what lights had been made and what options were available, I found the information hard to find.  While reading hundreds of pages from various threads I started taking notes and finally decided to make a chart to share with others.  I had to start somewhere and it seemed logical to start with lights that used the thumb button user interface and the wonderful board that powers all the more recent lights starting with the LionHeart.

After a long search, I recently acquired a Brass DragonHeart.   :D   It had quite a bit of patina so I decided to polish it along with some of my other Bulkware.  My first attempt at polishing looks great to the eye but the photos show they need more work.  I am finding it difficult to get the knurled areas on the Brass Cub polished.  Can anyone tell me how to get that area shined up?














i use the dremmel buffer followed by the dremmel polisher.  works just fine.
