It's brazing whot makes the diff!!

(Although KOF is "Traditional methods" not necessarily "Classic" style. I think you are distracted by Landshark's abstract expressionist painterliness and decidedly not classical schemes...)

FWIW, Sharks are all 100% brazed ala (some) Jack Taylor, or Rene Herse, or Condor Barraci, or my Hurlow TT, or...?

Welded is what is NOT (in my not-so-humble opinion) KOF!

Dale. 

That's understood. But please enlighten us as to why Landshark is defined as a Keeper Of the Flame?. I've read you mention them in the past and it's on the US KOF page of the Classic Rendezvous website yet I have a hard time regarding Landshark's as "classic". Vanilla, Bohemian ... yes, makes perfect sense. Landshark ??? There must be something I'm missin g.
