Relic Dagger No.291

Serge Panchenko

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this one was inspired by ancient Persian daggers, I've been really looking into ancient blades lately. 3/16" thick 1095 steel, copper "bands", copper plates with brass pins. Overall length is 8" with a 3 3/4" blade. Everything textured and antiqued. This is the first and probably the last time I will grind a recurve dagger, probably 7-8 hours went into the bevels alone lol. Hope you guys like it!

Doesn't get any more Serge-esque than that! Very nice, as always.

Really nice work, Serge. I love the shape of this one.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

What temp are you taking the copper wire to to get it to melt like that? Are you forming/melting it in place?

I was wondering that too. I could do it with my TIG pretty easily, but it doesn't look like you used a TIG. Are you using a jewelers torch?

Gotta love a knife that you can strap to a pole, and go boar hunting.

Style and class!

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.
