What can I say, the service, communication and support Dan provides has been superb. Nothing has been too much trouble, and the finished blade is simply excellent. Hard to find reliable, courteous and friendly service these days, but Dan and GVA deliver on them all. A pleasure working with you on my Katana Dan, thank you very much mate!
