Description: This exceptional dagger is by Mastersmith Audra Draper and shows her skills at their best. The blade is a bold twist pattern forged from 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels. The blade has a slight leaf shape, swelling at the middle and coming to a sharp, aggressive point. The ricasso has been sculpted.
The quillion style guard and pommel are both cast from bronze using the lost wax technique. This technique allowed Audra to create a dramatic guard which fully integrates with the blade and the fossilized walrus ivory handle. The ivory swells gently at the palm for a very comfortable in the hand. Exceptional work throughout!
