Thanks for all your comments. Definitely worth the wait. I'm thinking it would look good framed with a party armband, SA belt buckle and maybe an SA sports badge.
Customs were a joke, first they seized it without any documentation so all I received was an empty box. After a week of them denying that they had it, they threatened me with legal action unless I supplied a police clearance - even though you don't need one to import a razor sharp gunto. The police clearance was filled out incorrectly by weapons licencing so I had to start the process all over again. Then once Customs cleared it, to add insult to injury they mailed it to me in an unpadded cardboard bag. I lost a few hairs during that 6 week period.

Sorry to hear that Alex that's really disgusting. Not much better here in the UK if they find anything they have little respect for personal property.
Sounds like somebody in customs was looking to 'confiscate' it for themselves?
I'm just glad it finally came and with no damage from its journey.
These customs people can be pure & utter jobsworths !
I,ve had a few hairy things happen to my packages by UK customs.
it can be a gamble & worry sometimes importing edged weapons imo.
