    That's on my "pffft, I'll never find one of those" list. At least in my budget range.

    I did find a nice 6P by Laser Products that was a well scuffed unit at an awesome Buy it Now price. It still had a working Laser Products P60 too.
    I set the module aside after scoring another "I'll never find one of those" M61NLL modules. It now has a blemished Malkoff clicky and an Elzetta speed clip so aside from the Elzetta logo on the clip it's a generic looking number that only us flashaholics would appreciate.
    Never say never...
    I found one a couple of years ago, granted it cost me dearly but I landed it after years of looking.

    Nice.

    I have lots of old xenon and krypton lights from those days, from various brands. Canít bring myself to part with them cause theyíre still sorta cool.

    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    This was my GRAIL. A 2C Kel-Lite.

    The top one was a brand new one. Bottom was a user.
    Both came from Don Kellers personal collection.
    The bottom one is now a 2x 18500 LifePo4 with a 4 cell Mag PR base xenon that puts out about 200 overdriven lumens.

    Bonus:

    One of Don's LED drop in prototypes.
    This one is #13 of 14 made.

    Once I had acquired the 2c my collecting began to taper off. I had acquired nearly every flashlight from the list. Later my final grail, a minty gunmetal 6P was obtained from a fellow CPF'r so that was that.

    The E's were not on my list,

    So those are a bonus.

    I really want an LF2XT, and a 4/7s bolt light.

    Default Name your grail have/want

    I want to take the LED that MagLite is using in their Warm White Spektrum series MiniMag AAA and put that LED into a StreamLight Stylus Pro.

    Both are 2 x AAA penlights. The LED that MagLite chose is amazing in my eyes. And I find the Stylus Pro from StreamLight to be one of the best work/task lights Iíve ever used thanks to the dimensions, the nice forward clicky, a decent enough pocket clip, and ludicrously simple On/Off user interface. Literally as simple as it gets. I guess the mag light is also On/Off but it has that relatively big head, no clicky, and a pocket clip that was an afterthought...

    I really liked the look and concept of the bolt light especially the copper but I'm not that big of fan of lights that only use cr123 vs 16340's
    No such thing as too many flashlights, or knives.................

    The full size bolt light uses 2xCR2's or 1x14500.

Sold knives, lights, iirc I sold a McGizmo Mule, an Okluma, and a knife to be able to get it. No regrets, I ended up rebuying a different Okluma (or two), and a Haiku.

    My HDS Action light wasn't terribly expensive but I don't think I'll ever part with that one. Spy 005 in black Al and chrome with a warm emitter swap by lazer is also irreplaceable and much beloved.

    I hope to one day be lucky enough to own one of the older Spy 007 and there's a dude on Instagram that made a flashlight for himself, every time he posts it I envy him.

    Grail update:

    I was lucky enough to score a brass Hanko Trident which should have been my grail. Now my ultimate grail is a Mokume Trident and/or any of the older ones with teardrop head. I still want the one from Instagram (maker is Maverick). Not to into the 007 anymore but the Trek with a clip looks great. Any of LM Toolworks band engraved lights are grail worthy too, Iím lucky to have one. HDS thrower head is on my list, as is an 85tr if I find one at a good price. Tim Miklosí work is up there too, and a McGizmo Lunasol. Crap, it seems my list grew instead of shrunk
