Description: Mardi's love for making sculptural pieces clearly shows through on this masterpiece. There is something wonderfully primitive and yet playful in this piece. The 7 1/2" long blade is created from 1/2" thick Damascus forged to shape, creating a very substantial feel in the hand. It has been heavily sculpted and shows his mastery over his materials. The guard is created from sculpted titanium with a copper overlay. A whale's tooth separates the fossilized walrus ivory from the titanium. The ivory has tremendous color and variation. Three natural padparachas (orange sapphires) are set in 18kgold settings.
