Yep, exactlywhat pursegalsf says. I have had my Speedy 30 since Nov. and there were hardly any signs of patina. But as soon as the girls here on the PF told me to give it some sunlight, it now has a little color. But just to let you know, I dont use it everyday, so it is taking lots longer.pursegalsf said:You get the patina the more you use it. Exposing it to sunlight helps a lot.
