I have a second Rialto. It is green and unfilled at the moment. As the opportunity presents itself, I upgrade a Vector to a Rialto and then I plan to sell off the Vector.

The Rialto is a real workhorse and a good step up (in terms of materials) from the Vector. Enjoy them.

 

They made some really fancy ones too. The 88 Place Vendome with the silver or gold plated, fluted barrels and a fancy green Chinese laque version of the Rialto with gold maki-e design.
