Description: Artist Tom Sterling combines sculpture and function into unique masterpieces that are rarely matched elsewhere. Each creation is an original museum quality work, evocative of times long past. Long fascination with many artistic and historic disciplines have led to artistic interpretations of the tools and weapons of bygone times, resulting in a fascinating fusion of cultures. Nordic, Celtic, Aztec, Mayan and Northwest Native American influences are often noticeable, but whimsy occasionally lets fly as well.
Here whimsy is flying high! Tom has created a piece right out of Middle Earth with this Nazgul Holdout Stiletto. It shows amazing attention to detail and is a perfect display of Tom's skill and craftsmanship. Tom imagined the head Nazgul, "Hanging around the Black Tower playing poker with his minions. I wondered what sort of weaponry such a gambler might employ to deal with a minion who was winning too frequently. I don't picture a Nazgul as being a very good loser…"
This stiletto poniard style dagger, features hand forged W1 carbon steel. The Nazgul King's helmet sits atop the tower, ringed with a fine circlet of 24kt gold. When examined closely, the witch king himself can be found lurking inside. Behind it sits a fell beast guarding his back. Skulls of the unfortunate rest at the bottom of a series of spiral steps that circle the handle, each delicately carved. Above these on opposite sides are two tiny faces set permanently in anguish.
This piece comes with a "loosely interpreted" Bell Dirk style rawhide sheath with a copper and brass frog.
The perfect gift for that favorite hobbit, elf or orc in your life. Tolkien would be proud!
