Bruna Begali tweeted a photo of the new Simplex Ceramic Blue paddles that will soon be offered by Begali. It’s a beautiful piece of handcrafted goodness that will take its place alongside my growing collection of Italian keys from Pietro Begali.

I wrote to Bruna to get more details and she replied (with more photos) that the Ceramic finish is the same as that used on the Beretta and Perazzi Guns and shotguns with the supplier being one and the same. The finish is made by Cerakote and only two appliers are registered to use this finish in Italy.
