IMHO the JetBeam Jet-II Pro TI Anniversary edition is one of the coolest looking lights ever made!! The original Jet-II looks like a beast but this thing is just damn beautiful!

I wouldn’t call that lantern “cold war”. I have one that I found from when I was in the Navy back in 2008. Though, mine is considerably more beat to hell.

Below is what I have planned for it…

I’ve always thought that (amongst remotely affordable) lights that 4sevens always had the most elegant, simple, and proportional designs. I also loved their generous use of knurling.

And to think, a few yrs ago.
I thought the little Astrolux AO1 was elegant.
Finally away from the round tube with globe on one end
and switch on t’other.

The trouble nowadays.
Is that with the people’s skills coming out, they are making these “torches”
More works of art than tools.
If only a few of these came on market. nothing else would be sold.
They ALL beautiful….
I can see three at least I’d divorce the wife for. (Almost).

There is no such thing as an ugly light—-flawed maybe, but not ugly.

I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or embarrassed and showed your post to the wife. She said “if he likes it that much good for him”. It’s sometimes good to have the better half bring some clarity.

BTW nice mods Thumbs Up

Díky za sdílení informací, Petr. Thumbs Up

Very nice and they seem to have invested a lot of development work. There’s quite some flexibility in terms of options. However, prices are at the upped end. The Lucifer M5+ would cost $ 190,-. I mean…I always knew Prague was an expensive place to live but I didn’t expect Czech flashlights to be that pricy. Shocked

Per OP, sticking to “on the market” lights, I submit…

Green D4S (as a few others have also)

The original D25C Ti is definitely better looking than the D25C Mk II Ti or the D3C Ti.
