Mr. Potter,

I received the Boar Tusk dagger today. In fact, It arrived just hours after I received your email notifying me that you shipped it. I guess the delivery was fast since we both reside in California. What a pleasant surprise. I am very happy with the look and overall quality of the piece. Due to financial woes I don't want to bore forum members with, I had to bend over backward to get my wife to let me bid on this dagger. I was astonished I won. I am a sword, dagger, and knife collector, and know an item of this quality would normally cost easily twice what I bid. This dagger is getting a prominent display spot in my collection. Thank you very much for for the the auction.
