"Classic" Dagger, obverse side view in 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, 304 stainless steel bolsters, Blue/Gold Tigereye gemstone handle, red Stingray skin inlaid in hand-carved leather sheath
"Classic" Art, Collectors Fine Dagger
  • Size: Length overall: 12.25" (31.1cm), Blade Length: 7.5" (19.5 cm), Thickness: .195" (.49 cm)
  • Blade: 440C high chromium stainless tool steel, hardened and tempered to 58HRC, mirror polished
  • Fittings/Bolsters: 304 Austenitic high nickel, high chromium stainless steel, mirror polished
  • Handle: Polished "Falcon-eye" Blue Tiger Eye Gemstone
  • Sheath: Red Rayskin Inlaid in Hand-Tooled 9-10 oz. Leather Shoulder
  • Knife: The "Classic" is a large, substantial, solid dagger. I've hollow ground the double edged blade, leaving a solid spine a full 5" up the center of the blade for great strength. The blade has a fully tapered tang, full filework, even in the choils and finger grooves. The double quillion protects the hand from the edges, and the meaty handle belly and fishtail rear bolsters lock the hand to the gemstone. The super-tough and beautiful bolsters are made of 304 high nickel, high chromium austenitic stainless steel, for ultimate wear and longevity, corrosion free. The front bolster pair are sculpted and polished to echo the lines of the dagger. The handle is rare blue tiger eye (Falcon-eye), not really blue, but with darker components than regular tiger eye, more rich deep golden brown and less yellow. There are also fine red strands of red jasper running throughout, with a few traces of metallic gray hematite. Tiger eye exhibits chatoyancy, the cat's eye effect of light play from different angles, shown in the thumbnail knife photos below.
  • Sheath: A dagger this notable had to have a sheath to match, so I took the ambitious effort of inlaying 40 pieces of dark red rayskin in the sheath body! The sheath is inlaid front and back, and the belt loop is a dual loop, with decorative hand stitching with tough polyester sinew. I've designed the sheath to picture frame the gemstone handle when the knife is nested. The sheath is dyed black, lacquered and sealed, and the edges polished and finished.
  • This is a remarkable piece of fine artwork, original and unique. Truly one of a kind.
