It is a beautiful world out there if you are in to knives. I find myself stepping more and more toward these makers from Russia, Lithuania, Finland, Italy and other places as the quality and the creativity of these makers is really starting to put the "Made in USA" on notice. I have a Sebenza, I have a Bark River, but find myself reaching for the TRC, Southern Cross, Afonchenko, Viper, etc. more and more often. The Fang is just another example of just how well you can do for the money. And of course, RussianKnives service is top notch.
