Description: The late Dennis DesJardins was the former president of the Montana Knifemakers Association. He was a master at the forge and created dramatic works that will be held as family heirlooms.
Favorite of the riverboat gamblers of the mid 1800's as a hide-out weapon, the push dagger has been a serious part of American history. This push dagger blade has been flat ground and is very balanced. The fossilized mammoth ivory handle has tones of burnt cream with caramel segments. Double skulls have been carved on each side.
