That gets rid of the sharp part of the bezel and still lets light through if it is head down on a table, so that's a good solution.

Holy cow, that's actually beautiful!! I like that so much better than the smooth "Foyzel" (sorry Foy). The contrast of the black anodization and the polished aluminum is sexy and looks high-tech while still allowing it you to see if the light is on while face down. I will be doing that to a couple of my lights this weekend, maybe even tonight!

I actually did the same thing,  got lazy and left it half foybezeled.  Polished up nicely too.

Thats the old Jacktheclipper mod that started all the madness.

And I just got lyrical: "always take just half a task, if labor is supposed to last"

...kinda crude, eh?

 

Considering the Foyzel attempt - very nice work, indeed. Like I always say - obnoxiously sharp bezels are blank canvas, designed to be designed by you.

I was gonna say, I'm not the pioneer on this one.  The whole bezel thing started when I saw Jacks sand L2 that he took down just like that - maybe not as far.

I believe the technically correct term is 'SemiFoyed'.

They look awesome. If I have a little bit more time, I will try it.

Light up the darkness.

I did it to my 501B and I really like it. Spices it up nicely. Then I picked up my Romisen RC-29 and realized the bezel on the Romisen was already done like that from the factory.
