Description: Dagger of the Sun brings Egyptian elements to Higgins's and Sterling's work. Tom Sterling has created a butt from pyrographed maple with radiating solar rays. The sun in the center is sculpted from fossil ivory and has ebony inlay for the eyes.
The handle has been carved and pyrographed in shapes the evoke waves and wind.
The obsidian blade is an example of a perfect percussion bi-face blade and a true work of art.
Dagger of the Sun comes with a black walnut display stand.
