uk slips are always crap. just pointless tat. I wish the publisher would focus on quality steels, that means good art with a nice finish, emboss, gloss, spot gloss etc.

to be fair though, I think the art for this steel is great, cant comment on finish since I havent received mine yet

Does the slip cause scratches anyway? I really like the US knives out with clear slip. Ours didn’t have it but afterwards I thought maybe a good thing.

just standard matte but yeah the art is perfect. US one might have a smoother matte though from what I’ve seen with the US pics. Hard to tell

The Best Buy one is Satin, which has a smoother finish and slight shine to it just like satin paint that you buy at the store.

The slip not the exact same there is differences

UK The slip has UK/Ireland age rating logos are printed on the slip
UK release was always going to have age rating logos on the slip
Some customers would have preferred for removable stickers instead of been printed

USA Best Buy release that slip don't have any age ratings logos

If you want a release without age rating logos the USA release is the one to get

Also the U.K. slip has the Blu ray logo at the bottom of the spine and lionsgate at the top (but it don’t match up with the lionsgate logo on the steelbook underneath so you can kinda see it twice lol)

Other thing is the disc art. U.K. one is the same art on both discs and the US has a different 4K disc art. Other than that this is a tad streaky compared to the US one. But it’s not a bad streak like some. Shame it didn’t have the satin finish the US got but it’s still nice
