I was in contact with Thorfire and they said the minimum order quantity would be 100. I want a SS bezel because I like to put my lights lens down when they are top heavy. The stainless would protect noticable scratchs from happening.

Will this fit the original S70 as well?

Caleb, I’m not sure. Someone that has both models (S70 and S70S) should swap the original aluminum bezels to prove that it is the same design and dimensions.

I can confirm that S70 and S70S have the same design and dimensions bezels.

baldo21, great, thank you for that info. I have you down for 3 but need to get to 100 to make it worth it for Thorfire.

I don’t have an exact price but if I can get 100 units demand I’ll contact Thorfire and let them know.

JozzV6, alright I have you down for 1. If we can get to 60 I’ll probably be able to recoup the initial cost if I charge slightly more than the unit bulk price, which is unknown as of now.

Great! I assume that means that the threads are the same and the bezels are interchangeable?

If so, then I’m in for one.

Cheers!

Swapped out the JAX X6 Hunter SS bezel with the S70… a while back

KawiBoy1428, that looks so nice. It was the Jax x6 Hunter that inspired me to look into the stainless bezel. I tried to find replacement bezels for the Jax, but to no avail. The one you show in the image is smooth, and I was hoping to get one of the same design of the Q8. I think that design would look good on the S70 line.

Gerrit, have you down for 1. If you live in the Netherlands, we might have to arrange special shipping arrangements. A quick search and I’m seeing $15-20 USD shipping costs. I’ll see what else I can find.

You could also ask Sofirn to make the bezel. I believe they make the TF lights anyway. I think they are planning a new and improved Sofirn S70 as well

I am not trying to take away from the Stainless bezel idea for the S70 at all but………

When there is no stainless option available , especially for just the bezel , throw the bezel in a shallow dish , spray it full of Easy Off oven cleaner (do this outdoors) and let that take the anodizing off , then use 600 grit and down to 1000 grit sandpaper and polish it out to get that “stainless” look.

I have done some lights with the polished look , some with only the bezel polished and leave the rest more of a satin kind of look or like I did my Convoy L2 where I stripped the anodizing off parts of it and did not polish it out at all , leaving that satin look

Of course in the end the Stainless is going to hold up better than the aluminum being much more dent and ding resistant.

A few examples……………
BLF A6

Thorfire C8 (polished aluminum bezel)

Thorfire TG06

Convoy L2 (satin finish)
