Description: This custom push dagger was made by Steve Grosvenor (Red Rock Tools) of Beresford, South Dakota. Steve is a Forged in Fire champion (season 4, episode 9) and an American Bladesmith Society Journeyman Smith. He is also a former US Army Airborne Infantry solider and fabricator. Today, he is a full time bladesmith specializing in the high performance forged blade.
A push dagger is a small knife with a "T" shaped handle, designed to be grasped in the hand so that the blade protrudes from the front of a fist, typically between the 2nd and 3rd fingers. The push dagger has a colorful history - it is believed to have originated on the Indian subcontinent, being brought west by the British. As the empire spread (and crumbled), push daggers gained favor among riverboat gamblers in Mississippi as a boot knife. They were also popular with early American law enforcement officials. This push dagger is a masterful creation!
The blade is high performing 52100 carbon steel. 52100 is considered by many knife makers and knife users to be among the highest performing steel used to make knives today. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, it needs to be oiled and dried before being put away. We recommend using camellia oil to oil the blade and tang. At 62 Hrc, this knife will hold an exceptional edge.
Carbon fiber handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. The hand contoured scales are extremely comfortable.
Excellent work throughout!
