I finally picked up my first. I'd bid on a really cheap pair since the seller also had a couple of different custom knives I'd bid on. Didn't win any of those, but I did win the sausage knives. They should be here in a few days.

The graphics on yours are far more detailed and colorful than what I have.

Here’s a few that I really don’t remember where they came from, think picked them up in Tennessee on a road trip one summer. They’ve all been used, still in good shape,someone tried sharpening the serrated edge and didn’t know what they were doing? The 2 from Germany are made very well.
