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

3.   Stiga Clipper ST
Classic Clipper, the best seller blade from Stiga. Brand new with original box. Rare weight of 89 grs. It has been signed by these Top Players in ETTC 2018:
Timo Boll, Ovidiu Ionescu, Patrick Franziska, Kristian Karlsson, Vladimir Samsonov, Daniel Habesohn, Benedikt Duda, Kou Lei, Can Akkuzu, Alvaro Robles, Jonathan Groth, Walter Ricardo, Liam Pitchford, Jon Persson.

4.   OSP Martin CRW UFS SQST
Unique and special blade. I asked this blade exactly with some specifications (OSP supplier for Spain is my friend, we played in the same club last year). It has 2 layers of special UFS Carbon. 7 plies with Limba outer ply. Very confortable squared ST handle, very similar to Butterfly Timo Boll ALC ST handle. Awesome crarftmanship job for a completely handmade blade. The blade has my name on the handle. Weight 83 grs.

5.   Butterfly Timo Boll Spirit ST
Very special blade. This one is very old, from 2006 year ("G" letter) so it is the very first series. Brand new with the box of another Timo Boll Spirit ST. Weight 89 grs.

6.   Butterfly Timo Boll ALC ST
My second TB ALC, with "P" letter too. Brand new with original box. Slightly fishscaled, beautiful blade and quite light. Weight 82 grs.

7.   Butterfly Maze ST
Very popular and exclusive blade. Rare to see in brand new condition with original box. Serial number P (from 2015). Very Light. Weight 81 grs.

8.   Butterfly Timo Boll ZLF ST
Exclusive blade from Timo Boll series. First edition from 2011 (serial L). Brand new with original box. Weight 86 grs.

9.   Butterfly Timo Boll ALC ST
Another brand new in box Timo Boll ALC ST. This one is serial N (from 2013). Very light. Weight 84 grs.

10. Butterfly Timo Boll ZLC ST
Brand new with original box. Old version, from 2013 ("N" letter). Weight 87 grs.

11. Stiga Rosewood VII ST
For me the most beautiful Stiga blade. And with a incredible feeling. Brand new with original box. Weight 86 grs.

12. Stiga Dynasty Carbon Xu Xin Edition ST
The More expensive and exclusive blade from Stiga. It is basically a Dynasty Carbon with Xu Xin signature. Brand new with original box. Weight 93 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

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.
