That is a nice piece but the question is how do you find these things?

It would seem Germany, France and Belgium are full of these things...an untapped market for most ;-)

I'm generally not into African, but nice work on the blade.

Very nice. Really I would say you have refined taste for exquisite pieces (and you probably know how to find them). Congrats
