Customer Testimonial
...I got Shan-Aanís knife over the weekend. Quite a nice piece! The pinwork is excellent; symmetrical between sides of the handle, and adds feel to the grip. Itís a nice hefty knife, with good balance. I love wood in knife handles, so this is definitely my style. Iím not always a fan of drop points but this one feels very good in the hand and gives good control. All in all an excellent piece for that price point! Thanks! - Rich
