Insanely overpriced for what is a very simple functional tool. But strikingly beautiful, especially in some of the colors. It reminds me of the Campagnolo corkscrew.

I have owned and used for years a much more modestly priced bike-derived kitchen tool, the Park pizza cutter.

This was amusing: "aerospace quality precision."

Speaking of Anniversary Sets

There are a number of new old stock groupos available on eBay. I love the ultra polishing on the crankset.

Polished D/A Group truly beauteous to my eye. Nice for a early 90s Lugged freshed frameset for sure.

Not all polished and Alloy, but the 11 Speed SR 80th Anniversary Carbon/Ti froupo on my Spectrum Super wins hands down. Especially for my next to nothing cost comparatively. I paid 1/2 the price of the group for the entire Lynskey Helix with only a few rides on it. Got sold with 11 speed Ultegra. My Super just cried out for that 80th ani SR groupo. ;)

I had 9 speed D/A on my Strong for 12 years before upgrade to 10s D/A. Only then I realized how small the 9s STi are [to be light?]. I was never happy about the tops hood position ergos for my Gorilla Mitts. I actually had to put a shorter stem on the bike with the 10s STi that replaced the 9s D/A Sti.
