    Damn! is what I said when I saw this:rolleyes:
    Love the sandwich guard, love the style, love how aggressive it looks.

    That is a lot of blade for that price, it is a real deal.

    I'd like to add that no animals were harmed during the making of that video, although I did barbecue some chicken later that day.
