After ordering 3 times from Traditions I must say that everything that I ordered came in good shape and were just beautiful.
I ordered 2 yads for Bar Mitzvah boys and a couple of Chanukah menorahs. The children loved all of the things I got for them.
The recipient of this yad was so very happy. It is even more beautiful than the photos suggest. It has good weight to it and the colors are lovely. Please consider making a left handed version.
