Purchased as a gift for my brother after he and I had a talk about all things truly necessary in this world- according to us ;)… we’re both huge fans of these knives and axes- but the price point makes it hard to justify when so many options exist at a much lower rate - that said, this was a gift and meant to be special - it hit the mark on that point as my brother couldn’t believe it when he saw it… great knife and great history behind it
