Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey often draws inspiration from knives from an earlier era. This Persian Dagger is one such knife. The blade was forged to shape from carbon steels. Kevin created a pattern he calls "Random Chaos". The spine has been forged out, using a technique frequently used on bronze age knives. This technique results in an exceptionally strong, supportive spine and equally exceptionally dramatic appearance.
The guard and sculpted ferrule are both formed from nickel silver. The handle has been meticulously sculpted from stabilized box elder burl and hippo tooth. The light colors of the hippo tooth nicely highlight bright tones in the wood. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
