Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel: some luxury in times of crisis
Like some people say - in times of trumoil, the most valued goods are the luxury ones. Well, obviously Vertu want a piece of the action with their luxurious extra expensive Vertu Ti Ascent Damascus Steel.
The all-metal body of the new Vertu Ti Ascent Damascus Steel is made to last forever. Allegedly, the strength and hardness of the steel rest on an ancient forging method revived for the production of the device. The same method was used ages ago for the production of the famous Damascus sword blades.
Another impressive detail on the outside of the Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel is the unique swirl design which was made by hand etching each unit. Only one hundred units of the Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel will be produced and there is still no word on pricing or availability yet. But we can easily tell there's going to be a heavy price tag involved. And we mean dead heavy.Source
