I don't understand why people change the scales and grind off the nub... I think the Shaman is perfect as is! I love Sal's handle shapes. They're the only ones that fit my hand perfectly, and no fingers are left hanging. I really get annoyed when I grab a knife handle and my middle finger isn't touching. Happens a lot to me. Eric's designs work as well (he learned from Sal, right? Lol).
To each their own though. I'm so stuck on the Shaman I have trouble putting other knives in my pocket!
