Description: Mastersmith Jerry Lairson creates an exceptional knife. This quillion dagger was made in the spring of 2004, when Lairson was still a journeyman smith and was originally sold by BladeGallery. It has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. By all appearances, Mastersmith Lairson could have made it yesterday.
The blade was forged to shape from Jerry's own ladder pattern damascus. The damascus has a high layer count and shows tremendous skill at the forge.
The quillion, contoured ferrule, and pommel were forged from matching damascus. The exhibition grade Arizona desert ironwood (Olneya tesota) has great figure and has been hand fluted. The fluting continues into the damascus ferrule and pommel.
The dagger is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
