Kōsen Fine Flashlights


"Kōsen ga sasu" (光線が射す) - a ray of light shines. It describes the moment when light penetrates through an object or when a beam of light illuminates a specific area. A moment, perhaps, where a human observer suddenly gains a little clarity.

It all started when a group of friends started discussing what they really wanted in their illumination tools and got told they needed to make a minimum order quantity.

After one success, then two, then three, then four... it was clear as a ray of light, a kōsen, that we were filling our own niche in the market. We were getting things done that people really wanted. And maybe, just maybe, with a little more focus, we could get more ambitious.

We are 100% American owned and operated in New York City, New York, USA. Our focus is on domestic sourcing of product and labor. Nothing that can be done here is done overseas.

Our number one priority is getting exceptional illumination tools into our customers' hands. We're not interested in the ordinary. We're not interested in BS. We're only interested in exceptional. Because our customers deserve some clarity.

And just as our lights will shine exceptionally for you, we will forge forward and shine the path for even brighter and better. Kōsen ga sasu.
