Just came across this speedy on LT. I was showing my DH how dark speedy handles can turn, but I told him it would take many years to get that dark. But much to my surprise, that speedy has a date code of TH1003. So it was made in Oct. 2003, right? Is it normal for the handles to be that dark so quickly? I guess I'm so used to seeing light to medium patina on tPF.
