For those in the everyday carry space, few flashlight manufacturers can compare to the likes of Muyshondt. Their premium offerings are some of the finest portable torches on the market. And their flagship flashlight is getting a historic upgrade in the new Flieger 1930.

Like its ultralight titanium counterpart, this one has a fully-sealed monocoque design — although it’s crafted from aluminum bronze. It also still boasts a custom light engine with gold-plated internals, double-AR coated sapphire crystal lens, and five distinct output levels. Where it differs, however, is in its finish. Based on a technique from the 1930s, this Flieger features a unique, hand-applied finish designed to develop a unique patina mimicking the ‘brassing’ effects of vintage Leica cameras or mid-century typewriters. An even more masterful take on an already fantastic flashlight, the Flieger 1930 will be available in limited quantities at a price of $595 apiece.

Purchase: $595
