This is not the cheap-o crap you find all over the inter-webs. We have here high quality carbon fiber made by Carbonin, the carbon fiber bodywork source for WSBK teams, BSB Teams, and others. Its truly a beautiful piece, would look equally good on the wall. There is a very small blemish, a tiny surface scratch in the clear at the tip of the point, shown in the pics. Not noticeable at all unless your holding it in your hands looking closely.
