The Green Beret arrived yesterday. (Wow! The USPS does run quickly at times!) It is a beautiful knife and well worth the wait. I am very pleased. Secondly, the brochure with the knife is great. Really is a nice touch. Next, the sheath is really great. Last, can't think of anything else I would change. As I said, a great piece. Jim - Owner of #10 of 25
I received the knife today, and it is a thing of beauty! All the other techs. in the shop were jealous! Give John my sincere thank's, and let him know that his creation is resting in my safe next to my Dan-D. Also, after seeing the craftsmanship of the sheath, I will in the near future be looking at a holster. The brochure was very informative and an added bonus! I love history, and especially history about things I own! Thank you for the personal attention, it is rarely seen anymore! Regards, Gordo - Owner #23 of 25
