Exclamation (SCAMMER) Can you believe this email I got

I received this email yesterday and had a hard time believing this guy is for real. I currently have this knife listed in the classifieds on the Knife Net Work. This guy has to be a scammer so I thought you all would be interested in reading it. His IP checks out to be somewhere in Nigeria.

This is the email I recieved:
