Description: Mardi Meshejian's knives are always exciting -- combining his skilled workmanship with a unique perspective on edged art -- he is truly a unique and talented artist first and foremost. This Fluted Damascus Dagger is among my favorite of his knives to date.
The 8-1/4 inch long, dagger ground, elongated leaf shape blade is immediately captivating. The 700 layer damascus is extremely intricate and a perfect choice.
The handle is formed from jet black ebony wood. The hard wood was meticulously carved into flutes and inlaid with twisted heat colored copper niobium wire. A satin finished habaki separates the tsuba from the handle. Mardi forged the anodized tsuba from his own titanium damascus. The pommel is formed from heat colored 'damascus' forged from titanium and copper niobium super conductors.
