Description: Dramatic is the only word that comes to mind to describe this dagger from Johan Gustafsson. The overall composition is very impressive, with the colors of the Damascus mirroring the colors of the handle. The Damascus is well-etched and vividly colored, even richer in tone than other work we have seen by Johan, and used a technique that he has spent years developing. He is currently the only maker in the world able to accomplish these colors. The guard is fileworked. Johan sculpted the bone handle slightly to give it a very secure and comfortable fit in the hand.
