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?

WOW and a perfect example of why i dont bother posting that much………………..nit picking for no reason distracting away from the thread which now causes me to in replying lol. Cant we just keep it to the OP which is not about discussing or critiquing peoples posts. The reason i stated it being very subjective was because it is. So i just started my post this way.

In the last few months, there has been more bickering and tit for tat on here than other certain flashlight forums.

WOW again, cant believe i am even replying to this beep Sad

Take time to post a pic, reason why yet no comment be it good ,bad or ugly, yet pick on the start of my post…………….get a life!

I once dated a beautiful woman. Butt was ugly on the inside.

Is she still beautiful?

So if a flash is beautiful on the outside but the UI, thermal dissipation, springs, LED, etc., suck, is it still beautiful?

In what concerns this specific thread, I guess the look is the most important thing! Not functionality, UI or beam!

As example, the “Brass Beauty” is one hell of beautiful flashlight even if the UI is the 3/5 mode driver, which is not the best of the world!

So I guess that here we’ll be focusing on the look of the flashlights Thumbs Up

I just react…I am better off ignoring ignorance with compassion.

Solitude breeds contemplation which creates clarity. 

Environment molds a person. Perseverance changes them.

Well you have a good point. This isn’t a beauty pageant where the contestants tap dance, give a speech about poverty, and then do a comedy skit. LOL

Coast has a few stainless steel flashlights that I love the looks of – purely minimalist design, silky satin finish… very “tech” looking. They have an inspection light that’s pretty reasonable at under $30…

When they come in shocking colors they look to effeminate for my tastes and look like they belong more in a purse than a jeans pocket or tool belt. Then some do look like rare jewels, and are not much more useful than one unless you clip them outside your pocket so everyone can see you can afford one, which drops the coolness factor down a few notches. But I do agree that a flashlight with a body material like the Muyshondt’s, but with a more minimalist design that doesn’t detract from the beauty of the material, would be more my cup of tea.

Hey manufacturers, if you want the best looking flashlight ever not made, just come to flashlights most informed, most brilliant minds….BLF.

That one would take some beating.
But I also love the tiny Astrolux AO1 for looks

I can’t help enjoying the looks of my new RRT-01 immmensely, it is at least the bestlooking flashlight that I own, together with the ROT66. The RRT-01 is just too large and heavy for EDC but I still carry it atm Innocent

On one side: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And everybody has his/her own set of eyes.
On the other side: form follows function. Which makes the level of “beautiful” sometimes unattainable.
Personally I think CRX did an excellent job on both in the O-L Tribute Light he gave me.

Capture the full beauty of this shiny copper baton is certainly a few bridges too far for me!

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I’m in the same boat. I’m into form following function too, the lack of superfluous detail, while allowing the craftsmanship and quality of materials to be the centers of attention. Nice light!
