WOW! What a knife! This is a bargin. This knife costs $230.00 in the U.S. At $162.00 from KnifeShop, this is a steal for a solid built, extremely sharp, U.S. made knife. A couple of corrections on the description. The blade steel is the newer 154cm and the handle is aluminum. I am very proud to own this knife. Thanks KnifeShop for the fast delivery!
