A tactical flashlight it ain't. Designer Gad Scott Tal's Flashlight No. 01 is made from reclaimed wood, burnished with beeswax, and finished with leather and brass details.
Originally commissioned for a benefit auction by the Bay Area's Headlands Center for the Arts, the No. 01 will be put into production by Tauro, Tal's high-end leather goods company.
"Initially, it might be enjoyed as a curio," says Tal, "but its practicality would likely be realized during the next rolling blackouts."
