OMG, I took my new Sonatine out last night and set it on a table, and someone knocked their purple drink over. OMG, I had a heart attack! It SOAKED one of the vachetta handles of my new Sonatine from the bottom of the handle, halfway up! This morning I took a look at it, and I couldn't believe it. You can't even tell it happened. There's no mark on the vachetta or ANYTHING. It's not darker at all and there isn't even a water mark halffway up where it should have been! WOW. My faith in LV vachetta is totally renewed. I guess it's because the handles had a very light tan already from storage. Whew! Anyone else been this fortunate?
