Yep John! They're "shiny" now, but eventually they'll take on the desirable patina of use, holster wear, nicks and dings from banging up against stuff.
These irons aren't Harleys. They aren't going to spend their time not used, being cleaned, rubbed, washed, and coveted from a chair and unridden. I'm a gonna shoot these things. I hope to get the signs of holster wear on the bluing and such very soon
