Well friends, i´d like to post pictures of all my blades little by little. It's taking me sweat and tears to get them but little by little i´m getting all the blades that i´m looking for.
As you can see, i´m only interested in blades with ST handle.
Well, get comfortable. We started. Hope you enjoy! Wink
In order of appearance:

1.   Butterfly Viscaria ST 2
Extremely nice Viscaria ST. This one is like new, no dings, not sanded Original box included too which is not usual. Weight 89 grs.

2.   Butterfly Viscaria S T 1
Beautiful Viscaria S T with fishscale. Excelent condition. This one is the heaviest: 96 grs.

3.   Butterfly Viscaria ST 1
This is probably my best blade. Almost impossible to find one like this, in top condition, and with a little fishscale. Another special characteristic of this beautiful blade is the perfect and unusual weight: just 87 grs!!

4.   Butterfly Tricarbon ST

5.   Butterfly Gergely 21 ST
Nice and quite rare blade. Brand new with original box. Compact and "modern" version of famous Gergely T5000. This is the first version, with black tag and without serial number. Weight 83 grs.

6.   Butterfly Kiso Hinoki VII ST
Very exclusive Butterfly blade, in excellent condition. 7 plies of Kiso Hinoki wood. Harder and faster than Kiso Hinoki V. Weight 83 grs.

7.   Stiga Carbonado 45 ST
First model of the Carbonado "45 degrees" blades. Brand new with original box. Excellent craftmanship. Maybe it is a bit heavy but can be helpful to add power to the blade: Weight 97 grs.

8.   Stiga Carbonado 145 ST
Second version of the Carbonado "45 degrees" blades. Brand new with original box. Excellent craftmanship. Weight 89 grs.

9.   Butterfly Kiso Hinoki V ST
Very exclusive Butterfly blade, in excellent condition. 5 plies of Kiso Hinoki wood. Little brother of Kiso Hinoki VII although this one is heavier. Weight 84 grs.

10. Stiga Carbokev Wood WRB ST
Brand new with original box. Weight 91 grs.

11. Stiga Titanium Wood ST
Brand new with original box. Rare heavy blade. Weight 104 grs.

12. Stiga Carbonado 290 ST
The fastest "90 degrees" Carbonado blades. Brand new with original box. Weight 91 grs.

13. Stiga Kevtech Wood WRB ST
The same blade as Kevlar Wood. Brand new with original box. Weight 93 grs.

14. Stiga Saive Original ST
Nice and rare blade. Brand new. I think it has the same composition as Sense 7.6 but heavier. Weight 96 grs.

15. Stiga Carbonado 190 ST
One of the fastest Carbonado blades. Top condition, like new, just slightly sealed. Original box included. Weight 90 grs.

16. Stiga Clipper CR ST. Very popular blade. This one was from an actual pro player who gave it to a club´s member which is his friend. And them he gave it to me because i loved this blade. It is like new, just very slightly sanded on surface. Tested just 3-4 times. This is the solidario handle version which is not as common as WRB one. Original box included. Weight 92 grs.

17. Butterfly Viscaria Light ST. Nice blade, like new. No dings at all, not sanded, not sealed. "O" serial letter, from 2014 year. Weight 79 grs.

18. Stiga Clipper CC ST. Nice and powerful version of classic Clipper. Brand new with original box. Weight 95 grs.

19. Stiga Carbokev Wood ST. I love this blade: great sweet spot, fast and controlable. Brand new with original box. Weight 96 grs.

20. Stiga Carbonado 90 ST. This is the last of my "90 series" Carbonado blade. Brand new with original box. Weight 95 grs.

21. Stiga Carbonado 245 ST. The last of my "45 series" Carbonado blade. Brand new with original box. Weight 100 grs.

nut'n to sing & dance about the 1st 1 as it has been recycled, re-used & re-circulated from 1 member to the other. I've seen that RECYCLER ST before.
The 2nd blade is not genuinely "Made in Japan" & I'd not be shocked & awed by it at all. Oval label/tag @ the bottom of the handle tells me that it's not quite a gem.
Raining on your parade, again....Sorry.

My dear tiehwen, you´re obsessed with me!TongueBig smile
Are you sure that the Retriever has been re-used some times? I don´t think so.
Has anyone told that the Lindmae is made in Japan?Ermm

That's a very very beautiful Moonbeam (ST).  You know what will compliment your Arylate collection?  Keyshot (ST), Matsush*ta Pro Alpha (SI), Timo Boll Spark (ST), and Innerforce AL (ST). =)

I was thinking about supporting your case here, but then you made the statement about Iphone and you lost me. It might be the most wanted phone, but it's certainly not the best phone. I'd rather have the best then the most wanted.

Still supporting you with your blades though, if you are happy with them, that's what really matters. I'm extremely pleased with my Wavestone blades, although they are not the most wanted and I doubt they are regarded as high quality gems

Yes, the Moonbeam is a very stiff blade, so the best rubbers you can use would be a medium-soft rubbers, like Joola Rhyzm 375 or 42, for example.

Nice Butterfly Balsa Carbon.  I've never seen nor read anything about that blade before.  Very interesting!  Great collection you have there my friend.  Make sure to keep your new Retriever in a safe!

A collector from Rumania sent me a PM offering me this blade. I think it is impossible to find in a shop.

20 blades is quite a bit if they are all nice quality blades. Smile
Best of luck going forward with your collection – as a collector myself, I sure now the good feeling of building your collection.

Beautiful collection.

What are you storage like? Are you planning to control humidity and temperature? If I am going to do something like this, I would do something like what guitar collectors do.
