Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey drew his inspiration from a bygone era when he created this elegant Persian dagger.
Kevin began by combining four separate bars of Ws pattern damascus into a highly complex and dramatic blade pattern. This was then forged to shape. The upswept blade is hollow ground on both sides and is fully sharpened on both sides. A differential heat treatment keeps the central ridge of the knife soft and supportive with a hard, long lasting cutting edge. Because the blade was forged to shape, the damascus pattern follows the edge.
The gracefully curved handle was meticulously carved from dyed and stabilized giraffe bone. Both the bone and the rear pin feature a floral motif.
The knife is accompanied by a wooden sheath wrapped with bushpig skin detailed with cow leather. A central raised scroll completes the sheath. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
