All of my items are handmade & many of them are truly one of a kind which means that no two are exactly alike.

Because each one of my items are handcrafted one at a time, no two are 100% identical. I consider my items as art forms made in the centuries old ways which means there may be natural variations that one might consider a flaw but are actually inherent in the making of the piece, just as they were centuries ago. My items are created exactly as they were centuries ago. We might look at a piece from centuries ago may it be a drum, war club, knife, pipe, necklace, etc & think it's not perfect but actually it is, it's the hand crafted nature & techniques that the Native Americans used & which I use today with pride, skill & confidence.

Words cannot describe how beautifully made this knife is. Came to me quickly also but with this quality I wouldn't have been at all upset if it took months to get to me. Incredible product guys! Thank you so much!

Ummm, so disappointed and frankly a bit ticked off. I have a smaller knife purchased not long ago from the same shop. The previous knife was beautiful. Wood to metal finish tight. This one it's as if a different shop had an apprentice and it was his first try. Should have thrown it out. Which is probably what I will do. Chips on the ends of the handle piece. One side of handle you can see clear through it. The blade is literally flat and I do mean flat. Over a thumbs length. The next inch slightly less flat. I can put full thumb pressure on the back 2.5 inches and it doesn't harm the skin. About a quarter of an inch at tip of blade is barely sharp. I was excited to get this based on the previous purchase.

This arrived quickly and in beautiful condition! This will be a great addition to my husband's collection! The craftsmanship is wonderful! Thanks so much for the offering!

Wonderful craftsmanship! Really well balanced too. Great service and overall experience.

Ditto as related to previous review!
