This piece is very well made. Solid and sharp. Fit and finish is top-notch. Presentation and retention took very little practice to master for the short amount of time that I've had it, so there isn't much more I can say. HOWEVER... the only thing that I WILL say...and not so much as a negative... is that I am having a difficult time justifying it's price tag! Then, after careful consideration I have deemed it's price to be fair, especially for the blade aficionados out there! Many brands offer "premium" pieces at outrageous prices, and even then, for a reason - just like any other retailer; it's all about the market, and what the customer will pay for! Besides... I've already seen knock-offs on eBay, and I am sure that those pieces cannot compare to what I have purchased so I consider myself the PROUD OWNER OF THE ORIGINAL... which means a lot to me!!!
