Disappointing
Jul 2019 • Couples
I had big hopes in this shop to buy a Cretan knife to bring back from holidays but the reasonably priced knifes are of the poorest quality I have ever seen (glue overload on the blade and bad alignment)
Nothing to see there !

I got two knives here and both are excellent. The man showed me many of their selection and was very patient and eventually he showed me a beautiful Kukri with a bone handle that I knew I must have it. This knife didn't have a sheath but they found one of the right size and then reworked it to fit.

Excellent knives with great service and good prices
Feb 2016
Crete is famous for its handcrafted knives and one of the outstanding names in Chania is Skalidakis knives. I bought six excellent table knives whihc the son had designed himlf.

As I was travelling with dand baggage only he offered to post them and I had them - delivery free - within four days.

The owner - two brothers and a sister are patient and polite and can tell you anything you want or need to know about knives. Excellent value and an even better souvenir.
