My thoughts exactly. I'd rather have an Antea KS for much cheaper with heat blued hands than these colored ones.It has a nice look, but I don't know about blue-colored hands. The real 'blue' comes from heat treatment as I understand it. Also, all of these hands and stuff sort of confuse me. It's like having a quartz watch with 1000 functions and read outs - I just get confused and can't even reset the watch when the battery goes dead.
