Yes, guys, that’s what the point of this thread is.
To share what YOUR subjective opinion of a beautiful flashlight is.
Not what single flashlight looks best for everyone.

Maybe you just read the title and didn’t read the OP?


Exactly.

The timeless MagLite 2D and 3D is certainly up there on my list too.

I think the Astrolux 41S still looks awesome too.

I’ve seen some beautiful Ti lights here and there too, but they’re not at all within my budget, so i forget the names…

Exactly.

I Read the title and the OP.

I read the OP again and it certainly POINTS toward the Title:What is the best looking/ most beautiful flashlight on the market?

His second line:“In all seriousness what is the best looking flashlight on the market?” That sounds like an overall opinion!

Third line:“Of course we all like different lights so feel free to add pics and explain the beauty.”

It is a little of both but b/w the title and line Two I did not misinterpret anything!! Smile

Lets argue about it! lol!

I wouldn’t call those pretty, but they’re really neat Love Woulda loved to see one of those in Phantom Doctrine.

I guess you’re right. OP never did say “best looking Bakelite”

It looks like a flashlight! Not a weapon nor a Faberge Egg nor a piece of jewelry to be worn. Maybe an updated Surefire design.

So many beautiful flashlights, but this is my pick. Simply elegant.

Absolute statements are often used in the english language while actually implying from the point of reference of the reader.
As in the reader is the one to be asking themselves the question “what is the most beautiful flashlight”.
This is clear from the ending of the post which states that everyone should post pictures of the one they like best.
It is obvious that the question “what is the most beautiful flashlight” is meant to be answered from the subjective point of view of the reader.
It may not have been clear enough for a non-native english speaker to catch though, as it does appear as an absolute statement at first glance.

Whatever makes you happy. You have your interpretation and I have mine. I am NOT the one who has to and thinks he is right all the time. There are countless people on this forum like that! Wink

It’s actually called a misinterpretation, when you misunderstand the post’s intended meaning.

Maybe not the best looking light of all time, but the best looking in my collection… the Astrolux SS (converted to triple XP-L HI’s and custom tailcap).

Well, I was in the group buy, but ended up not being able to afford those when they came available. I would still trade my entire “collection” such as it is, for just one of those.

Well as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I am curious to what every one thinks in there own eyes what is the best looking light on the market.

Enderman started the ball rolling with a light that i would need to sell my kidney for Silly but one i have never seen before. This is broadening the horizon of every one reading the thread.

I joined the FB group flashlight fanatics so i see heaps of custom work now makes me want to try my luck lol.

Personally i love the BLF/EE X6 i have a few of my own. They tick all the BLF boxes. I don’t find my self very creative i am more practical so i am more likely to go a light i will actually use and abuse. Yet looking at all these makes we want one lol.

  • Cheap
  • Well built
  • Handles heat well
  • Looks good
  • Easy to mod

Yup haha.
Maybe some day I will try to make myself one.

Your right enderman,,your always right. This is a perfect example of asking myself, “Is it really worth it”? NO!

You fit right into the category I mentioned in a prior post. Have a good day.

I like the look of timascus, mokuti, mokume. Hanko is right up there (among 1-2 others), muyshondt not so much. Of course, being pretty and expensive doesn’t mean I would use it much and there in lies a problem for me. I don’t want to keep a light for the sake of it, I want to use it when I want without thought of …. Shocked Tired
