I was very pleased with the weight of the knife, great disply piece.
It's a display type of this knife, you would damaged if you try to sharpen it!
Bought as a gift. My husband loves it. Is it a real one? Definitely not, but it is very close to an original ( minus aging/patina). It says on sight that it is sold as a curio (show piece). That it is. The blade isn't even sharp. The markings look authentic enough and he is happy with it so that's all that matters to me. Is there a better reproduction out there? Yes there is, but for the price and for my husband's purposes (a show piece), you can't beat it. Thank you Sarco! This was a great Father's Day gift to my husband.
