Ulrich - this is extraordinary. Your steel is amazing.

 

Have you ever considered making a Mughal-style khanjar?

Nice one! B)

It looks like it means buisness, very smooth form.

How much manipulation did you do to influence the pattern, or is that the forged-in texture?

 

I forged the blade near to shape and than I grind 14 grooves at each side of the saberblade.

 

@ all: you are very kind to me, thanks Uli. :D

Uli:

Let me be the first to say that is one of the best looking blades I have ever seen. We are all privileged here to see some of the best craftsmanship on the planet from some of the best makers. I will not use names because we all know who they are. This is one extraordinary piece of work. Let me say thank you for sharing as humble as I can.

Thanks,

Chuck

Hi Uli

 

That turned out really sweet and I bet you must have blisters on your fingers from all the polishing.

I like how you did the fittings and used the silver.

I am sure you to will be glad that it is finished, what is happening to the dagger?

A pic of the pieces both finished would be great.

Fantastic work! They will both be remembered by me for a very long time along with the dozen or so knives that I will never forget. The Jambiya is one of my favorite designs, I absolutely love the ridge which was created to pierce chainmail and other armor.

 

 

Did the new owner mention his intentions with them? Ive heard of a few high dollar pieces being made for wedding gifts, to wear during weddings, and just to wear during formal gatherings in the Middle East.
