I don't know maybe it's the professionally hand made nature of the thing coupled with the extremely high quality materials.

what makes a E-type Jag better then a Nissan Sunny after all they are both cars :roll:

Good point, but Cas Hanwei really do like to put the prices high, people look at the price tag and assume its epic, usually with Hanwei they ARE. But it's a simple trade secret, if the price is high so is its exclusivity and quality

It's not so 'special' when you take a look at the Rockstead UN ZDP, Rockstead UN-UGUISU, Rockstead UN-TETSUKON and Rockstead UN-DLC AZUKI, you could buy 7 Kami tanto for the price of any single one of them and have a good night out with the change. :D
