Sillen, have you down for 1. Now we are at 15 pieces. robo, thanks for that information. That is a good way to solve our problem relative to looks. For my needs SS should add stability and wear resistance.

Nicolicous, 3 requested
Jeommel, 1 requested

Edit: As a user has pointed out, it may be possible to convince Thorfire to ship these individually, instead of myself shipping. Please disregard the below paragraph. Keeping it for context.

Thanks to all that have been participating. Please note that if you live outside the US, a shipping charge will be applied depending on where you live. For example, shipping to Australia is about US $15,and NL is US$14. For those that have requested more than 2 units, the shipping price is likely to go down.

If we get to 100, is Thorfire going to be selling these, or are you? Because, shipping from China to Aus costs nowhere near 15$, if anything at all.

If Thorfire can ship that would be great, but I was thinking I would buy and distribute them since I’ll be bulk ordering them. If they let us order separately I would go for that. Less work for me.

I may be interested in 2, of course it would be dependent on final price and shipping.

Hello folks. Thorfire contacted me about the bezels, and I looks like the upped the quantity to 300. This is moving too slow so I’m stepping down.

Thanks for the effort anyway. Would be nice to have a stainless bezel, but it’s not that big of a deal.

Thanks for trying. I think they would have sold well, especially outside the small exposure this thread provided. Its a nice implement for those who already own the light and for those who have yet to buy one.

Maybe Sofirn will use an SS bezel in their S70S inspired model, and maybe they use the same threading for the bezel.
They could make a few too many to sell a piece.
Meh, one can hope, right..?

Jaxman isn’t going to make anything for Thorfire or Sofirn products. They’ve accused them of ripping their E3 design in the past. Contact Sofirn. They make the TF lights anyway, and might be happy to make them. Barry, who used to work at TF, now works at Sofirn.

As I’m around saltwater on occasion (like having a 420 stainless knifeblade on a SOG Flash 2 blade rust from simply being in a car door pocket) and aluminum/stainless is a bad combo: I’d fear for the corrosion hit that the alum would take so I’d pass based on that. I think the easy off/polish mod noted above is brilliant. Good luck.

For me the point of a SS bezel wasn’t vanity. It was to have a tough bezel that can withstand a bump

The Sofirn SP70 will have a much bigger bezel.

It was TIGHT.
The old freezer trick worked, along with a rubber glove.
Taught to me by an old Gunsmith. Chuck Boyer, may be Rest In Peace.
