Description: Van Barnett's knives have a flowing sense of movement and lines rarely found in work by other bladesmiths. The ladder pattern Damascus blade has been deeply etched and highly polished, resulting in a dramatic chatoyancy similar to that of a tiger's eye gemstone. The dagger ground blade was hollow ground to accentuate the grind lines.
The quillion guard and pommel are both formed from hot gun blued mild steel. The black surface of gun blued steel contrasts to the bright 24kt gold inlay. Floral scroll engraving in French gray style adds tremendous detail. A central jade column is surrounded by gold spacers. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
