Wait. Russian? Style? Does not compute, Comrade.

Well with one possible exception. Makes me think of a quote from a Neal Stephenson book
“Ask a Soviet engineer to design a pair of shoes and he’ll come up with something that looks like the boxes that the shoes came in; ask him to make something that will massacre Germans, and he turns into Thomas Fucking Edison.”

Shiny!

Do tell more about the sharp, pointy thing. Seems somehow too fancy to be Soviet.

Air Zlatoust Lynx. Bought it for my son as a Xmas present. Incredible quality and painful beauty.

Nice pictures, but to be really Russian, youd have to include cheap rotgut, and crippling depression. :ugeek: :lol: :mrgreen:
