keeping in mind that this is all made buy hand with the least advanced technology available. I have to say I am absolutely impressed and I could not ask for a better deal and it comes from the other side of the world (Nepal). Absolutely amazing see attached pictures and you be the judge I did my best to cover all the angles. I left the knife covered in oil/grease as it arrived then I cleaned it up a bit. I am not going to get into specifics because I am not a meta..
