    Ein total aufgedrehter Clown labert nur Müll und macht etwas, was jeder Junge mit Zugang zu einer Werkstatt bereits mit 8 Jahren gemacht hat. Ach ne, Gold ist weich? Ach was, Metall wird härter wenn es abkühlt? Die Tatsache, dass der mit dem Schrott auch noch Geld verdient ist ein Beweis dafür, wie heruntergekommen unsere Gesellschaft ist.

    Not impressed. Making a knife out of a metal thats very mallable, and has a low melting point is way easier than working with steel. Personally I see knives as tools, this gold knife is just decoration.
