I received my Sting/N.C. Custom in a timely manner. As usual I found another fine knife that I had purchased. Beautiful and razor sharp upon arrival, straight out of the box. I surveyed it looking for any blemish or unfinished surface, of course I found none. Fit & finish was impeccable, exactly as all my previous purchases from Russian Knives. Blade grind was perfect, very comfortable & fast handling knife!! Great Products & customer service keep me coming back to buy more from Russian Knives! Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase.
