It’s finally here.
After 3 weeks of waiting and countless refreshes of the USPS tracking information page, this beauty finally arrived in the mailbox, safely cradled in foam packaging peanuts. At first glance, it was a lot smaller than expected, but the weight and hand feel ended up greatly compensated for its size. In 18350 mode, the Private v2 can easily be concealed in your hand, just like a pack of LifeSavers.
The tritone combination of stainless steel, brass, and copper really add to the luxurious visual aesthetic of this mod. In 18650 mode with the brass exposed, the v2’s presence is commanding, to say the least. Button action is smooth and solid.
While visually striking, there were several imperfections noticed upon closer look at the body: small nicks are virtually unnoticeable, but still present; the threads also need to be cleaned up a bit. However, despite these minor gripes, the Private v2 looks to be a sexy, hard-hitting mod.
The serial number’s also my birthday. Get on my level. : )
