I was catching up on this thread, and when I read this I almost died laughing. Honestly, when Fab said the boxed arrived, the first thought that came to my mind was "I hope it's not a box of Korean socks."
Ick... Now, back to that presentation for tomorrow....
It had occurred to me that it could be a box of socks. But no, it is indeed an ink Kitana. First impression - that horrendous chemical smell from the glue! WHEW!! Shiver me timbers!
Ink is a pretty blue color (haven't compared it to my old-school ink Lorca yet, but it looks close), the leather is very soft, I can't see any flaws. But that smell....that puppy would be hanging on the back porch if it wasn't raining.
