The box was waiting in the mail. I ripped it open and there awaited my MPU. I pulled it out of the sheath that accompanied it and, whoa! It was sharp as hell, great looking with a great looking sheath accompanying it. BUT.......The damn thing was all scratched up! I don't mind my knives showing a little wear and tear but I'd like to at least be the one doing the wearing and tearing. It was extremely sharp and everything I expected but I was somewhat disappointed by all the scratch marks which appear to be caused by the sheath. Am I nuts? Is this normal? Except for all of the scratch marks I love the knife.
