Description: The team of Tom Sterling and JP Higgins is a formidable force. Joe Higgins, who has been flint knapping knives for over 10 years, created the blade of this masterpiece with precision. This skill is matched in the detailed handle created by Tom Sterling, who has brought his attention to detail learned as an internationally known netsuke artist to this piece.
The Book of Kells Dagger has a pyrographed handle inspired by the Book of Kells illuminated manuscript. The Book of Kells is one of the masterpieces of Irish illuminated manuscripts and provides a wealth of Celtic knotwork and imagery. The handle combines holly, yellowheart, and purpleheart hardwoods. The blade was percussion flaked from Mexican green rainbow obsidian by Dr. Joe Higgins and shows tremendous skill at knapping.
Accompanied by black walnut display stand.
