Description: Raymond Richard's designs have a timeless grace about them that comes from a family heritage of knifemaking and the inclusion of hard to find materials.
This upswept dagger has a great feel. The blade is hand forged from 5160 carbon steel. Ray is a true master at the forge, regularly teaching other bladesmiths better forging techniques. Here, the blade is forged so closely to shape that only the edges had to be sharpened. This is a totally new level of mastery at the forge!
The guard, fileworked spacer and end cap with ring are forged from antique wrought iron. The iron has a hammered finish which continues the timeless feel to the knife. The curly maple handle is gorgeous as well as comfortable in the hand. All edges have been rounded and smoothed and the end of the handle swells allowing a positive retention. A truly unique piece. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
