It's highly recommended on this forum, I don't have one but I've heard very good things about it, I'd recommend buying a tub of renaissance wax to protect it from rust, it leaves a glassy finish to the polish and protects it from rust for at least 6 months per coat, works much better and much cleaner than oils, it also works on leather, laqured wood and most textiles, it's a must have in my opinion
Ps, your delivery time may vary, it's Friday so it will be at the most next Friday, one way to check is to call blades uk, the number is on the main page, Lawrence will confirm the expected delivery date, Ohh and please post some good close up pics when you receive it! :>

I got one and it takes pride of place in my collection. Get yourself a nice wall plaque too to display it on.
