Description: Rucus Coetzee began making knives in 2010 when he started working at Heavin Forge under ABS Mastersmiths Kevin Harvey and Heather Harvey. He began forging blades immediately and joined the Knifemakers' Guild of Southern African in September of 2011 (making him -- at the age of 20 -- the youngest member -- an honor previously held by Kevin Harvey). In 2013, he started his own workshop and began creating many different styles of knives and blades from hunting knives to kitchen knives, though Rucus' interest in bladesmithing comes from his love for history and historical weapons. He spends a lot of time researching these weapons, then creates one of his own. They are never 100% copies of originals. Instead, he tries to introduce his own style into the historically inspired piece.
This Damascus Persian Dagger shows Rucus's excellent skills as a bladesmith. The blade is hand forged. Rucus created a bold ladder pattern from carbon steels.
Like the upswept blade, the handle is Persian influenced. It is dyed and stabilized maple burl with antiqued brass fittings.
To keep the dagger close, a hand tooled leather custom sheath is included.
Exceptional work throughout!
