Description: This is Anders' work at its best. The dagger will fully disassemble by removing the peg in the handle. The habaki features carved profiles of a crossbow & helmet. Hand cast antiqued Chinese gold fittings. The differentially hardened blade means that the edge is able to be extremely hard, whereas the center of the blade is softer, creating a much stronger dagger. The work on the sheath is meticulous.
