What is the best looking/ most beautiful flashlight on the market?

Hey folks i thought id start a thread we can all learn about 1000 dollar flashlight we’ve never heard of Silly

In all seriousness what is the best looking flashlight on the market?

Of course we all like different lights so feel free to add pics and explain the beauty.

What shape and design and material do you find the most beauty in?

We can break this up in to categories if you want or just chose one? Best looking SS, Copper, Titanium and best anodized lights?

Probably something made out of mokuti, and with a fairly minimalist exterior.

Maybe like this but without all the grooves and knurlings.
I’d also prefer a larger size (this one is only 18350), and a more subtle clip.

I’m sure it’s not the best looking ever, but the best looking flashlight I own is the cyan Emisar D4 with 18650 tube. I love the colour, the proportions, and even the texture. Shocked

Agreed, it would be wicked looking without all that knurling and what not. Muyshondt makes some perty lights.

Does it have to be currently available? Or is an older design also fine?

For today I would say, the Hanko designs are one of the nicest!

If the D4S was available in cyan it would have gotten my vote instead of green. A cyan body would need different coloured aux lights.

The feel of an Emisar is unmatched. The knurling is just right. The anodising texture is superior to any of my other lights.

Emisar lights are definitely pretty. My favorite so far has to be the Eagle Eye X6 and X5 shape. I like simple, clean designs that include both curvy shapes and straight edges/lines.

I’d love a similar design, but with triple LED, 18650 and a tail e-switch… made by Lumintop too…
Guess we’ll never see it unfortunately Innocent

This (but the price makes it a grail only). And the Spy 007 for the more clean look, a bit more in the price range I can afford.

18650 is a little big to me, i want something thin, delicate, smooth, pure, “sexy”, this light has all

Despite everything else that I despise about it (American made, inefficient outdated technology, legendary atrocious beam artifacts, overpriced as hell, etcetera etcetera etcetera), I gotta give it to a classic:

M@g-lite really nailed an elegant look for their backbone model. It’s super simple, but without being drab, because it doesn’t have to be fancy, and even for those outside North America and Europe that never saw a Mag before, it’s instantly recognizable for what it is.

I always found camo on a flashlight to be an oxymoronic idea. When you fumble on the draw and drop it on the wilderness floor at night, don’t you want to be able to find the light?

For me, the more visible the better, and 3tronics’s GITD powder coating is king Silly

Very subjective, defo hanko trident is up there(the tesseract is amazing), love the BOSS design as well. Not too into the fancy metals too much, bit too much in some cases.

For me, a classic which i enjoy as much today as when it was 1st made many years ago. Although a different engine and led/s, i am a big fan of the haiku myself. Nothing blingy or flashy, just a tool that will last generations. Does not age either

My best looking flashlight,,,that is all that matters! The rest is ALL opinion and preference. Like asking who is the hottest woman[the one I am with,,,of course!],we all have different tastes.

TX25C2vn Single mode/DD-Activates by twisting Tailcap/XPG2 PDT/900Lumens/80Kcd. V54 engraved on other side.

CAPO is my Husky. Means Boss.Chief in Italian,,,he is a mobster[ a nice one]!

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?
