    Those were such good knives. Great fit and finish, nice firm pulls, and some really good modern blade steel.

    It doesn't meet my definition of "safe queen" either, but to each his own. :)

    Well...guess your right.:D But there are only one or two very little black spots left on the steel. You wouldn't recognize if you don't know...:cool:
