Fantasy Dagger

Recommended Posts

Just finished this up as a present for a friend. Blade is 1095 with hamon and coffee etch. Copper habaki and seppas, oil blued mild steel guard, reconstituted malachite and copper spacers, carved maccassar ebony handle with copper lined cut out and acrylic bead. Take down construction assembled with a single copper pin. Sheath is magnolia covered with goat skin and copper chape and suspension ring, with malachite and acrylic inlaid accents:

Pretty darned cool!  The cutout with bead has to be representative of something...  :huh:

Wow, something about the fit and finish as well as all the little details make that one really speak to me.  Your work always impresses, but this really dropped my jaw.

So many fine details for the eye to feast on.I particularly like the way the guard matches the sheath top with the knife and shath a single homogenous spectacle.  Superb work.

The cut out is inspired by a Sailor Moon tattoo she has. The suspension ring was meant to be an oroburos to match another of her tattoos,, but i couldn't find a suitable chisel to split the mouth...

Really nice, I like this style a lot.

What you did with the bead is very clever, I have a bunch of small beads and I could never figure out how to incorporate them into a knife. But, I think after seeing this I could try doing them as sort of an inlay but with wire holding it in place.
