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 4 3/4" long blade is forged from Mardi's Tack Damascus (created by actually forging tacks into the steel!). It has been heavily sculpted and shows his mastery over his materials. The guard is created from sterling silver and was melted into the fossil walrus ivory handle. Exceptional work throughout!
