Knife is more beautiful in real life, I didn't want to put it down. Steel is super shiny and sharp and the handle feels so natural in my hand. The point on this knive is the sharpest I've ever seen in my life. Amazing tip. That dark is soft to the touch. Bought it as a present for a friend and was a little jealous. Woulda been a 5 star if it was actually flexible but still, amazing knife!
