Ordered this because I needed an all around good knife for work and daily use. After an initial post office mixup where i recieved an empty package, i got it all sorted out and the replacement was delivered by the original planned delivery date. A bit hard to contact bobcat knives customer service though. The knife is actually gorgeous. For this price point i did not expect the quality that i got. This is genuine damascus steel, not that etched on pattern you'll find some scam artists selling on here. It came pre oiled and with a certificate of authenticity. A bit bigger than i thought it would be, but im not complaining. Any other company selling a damascus knife of this quality will charge you at least 100$. The blade is very sharp right out of the box, shaved the hairs right off my arm without having to sharpen it. All in all very happy with this purchase and I'll probably buy a damascus bowie next.
