Just wanted to share my experience regarding my recent knife purchase with sharp and shiny shop. Lefty was awesome to deal with. He answered any questions I had super quick and was patient as paypal mucked up the payment process(on my end). My knife arrived in the US safely and quickly, four or five days I believe. The knife was packaged very nicely and even gift wrapped with a personalized hand written note. I even got a sample of the Brooklyn to london shave soap which smells awesome! The knife I picked up was used but in as good as new condition, clearly the knife was well cared for and came with a very sharp edge . As I use my new knife a bit more I'll try my hand at a review in the kitchen knife section. Thanks again Lefty for helping me pick a knife up that I had drooled over many times.
