    Goodness gracious ! That is an unusual design for Herr Wacker. The scales I mean.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Of all the Wackers I've seen that has got to be the least attractive(my opinion).

    Pretty strange. Is it not Wacker who has a network of 'artisans'?

    I can see the frown in the edge from across the road, I think?

    No Frown. Thats a trick of the photography. I cant tell you how many shots I have had to retake because an angle made a perfect blade look like it was frowning.
    That said, its friggin ugly and looks totally unbalanced. much like my mental state.

    Ok it seems we can all agree that this one is not winning any beauty contests. I doubt it will win any art contests either. There are very few non traditional looking scales that I find attractive, couple that with the fact that the blade has very little shape, it makes me cringe.

    I have to agree. The scales are really ugly IMO, and the blade is just, as Bruno would say 'meh' ..........

    OTOH, I've seen mostly really nice stuff come out of the Wacker works. But maybe that is just my prejudice for traditional style blades and scales.
