After an hour in the store at Tysons Corner, I emerged with a black clemence bolide, 31 cm, silver hardware! I have been hoping for a black bolide for some time now, and am very excited !! I passed on the evergrain kelly though - although i loved the look of it, I didnt really like the hand, which felt too moist or rubbery to me for some reason. I think I want to hold out for togo or swift, esp since it would be my first kelly.
