I am a 34 year old German who ever since I was a child fell in love with knives and blades of all kind. I just received this wonderfull blade after having waited for the package 10 days only. Christmas was in between so I guess I was luky. Outstanding quick delivery service. The quality of the blade is to be felt to believe. 10 out of 10. No problem to decapitate a water buffalo I guess ...Awesome !
