My Heurtault is finally complete! Michel sent me the pictures. The ribs are Japanese made from the 1970s. It will ship this Monday. I’m so excited!

I need an opinion - if I'm just going to own one umbrella, what would be the most versatile color? I'm thinking of finally picking one up from Fox

Depends on who you are - I opted for the colour called Kingfisher from Ince, which is a very cheerful blue that tends to chase the clouds away. Most would go for black, followed by navy.

Hello gentlemen. Today my Heurtault has arrived. It's fucking beautiful! Excusez mon français.
I'd like to say that the packaging was impeccable. It came in a box with bubble wrap inside and then another box, and then a paper wrap as if it were the pharaoh, then finally a silk sheath and umbrella inside. There was a piece of paper where the metal tips touch the wood as to prevent an unsightly imprint.

I just spent 10 minutes just admiring this piece. The opening action is is the best I've seen. It's smooth and stops exactly when the runner goes past the top spring. Talarico on the other hand has a little room for the runner to go past the spring and it gets caught on the way down. The metal tips are all uniform when folded. Talarico on the other may seem bent at times. It will be raining tomorrow and I shall enjoy this in the rain.
