I Big Smile at the Crenulated Bezel. Honestly it doesn’t look like a comfortable light to carry in a pocket even without the comical Crenulated Bezel.

Looks weird and crappy to me. Must be lots of fan boys at CPF. I have a few quarks, great lights, thought not too exciting. This is just weird yet is garnering praise on CPF. I really don’t like it but don’t want to crap in the thread.

The aluminum bezel usable to break glass while the car is underwater, . Is that possible with that bezel design at all?let's say using the stainless steel one instead of the aluminum crenulate bezel.

It is interesting how they implemented the tactical function on a simple no-switch flashlight.

That bezel would be too weak to break glass, it looks vicious, like a gangsters weapon.

How dare you not praise PK’s work He’s the former king of flashlights!!

Silly

Who else remembers when PK released his first personally designed flashlight the PK FL2 and people were not allowed to complain about the lack of a front spring and instead it had a bare PCB for positive contact, and yet they said it was suitable for weapon mounting!!

It reminds me of my nephew’s drawing with gundam wings and unnecessary spikes everywhere !
Yeah, I think the designer might be 7 years old^^

I dunno. I just think PK’s designs are ugly and silly. That attack bezel is a joke.

I don’t want to pile on them at all (I recall their CS was top notch on a matter I had with them) but those lights do not look appealing at all. I haven’t look at a 4-7 light in a while & sadly those are pretty disappointing looking. :Sp

Maybe the design was contracted out to Bud Tugly or perhaps his kid Wink Betcha it’s a hit where the focus in more on ‘flash’ than ‘light’.
