    Here is a dagger I finished recently. It is the first dagger I have made. The handle is stabilized redwood burl (WSSI) and the guard is wrought iron. I made it so the redwood stands a little proud of the guard. This knife was forged and heat treated by me using a temp controlled forge and quenched in Parks #50. The blade is hand finished and etched to bring out the beauty of the wrought iron.

    Specs:

    Steel--1084/Wrought Iron San Mai
    Grind--Hollow
    Handle--Redwood Burl
    Guard--Wrought Iron
    OAL--10 1/2"
    Cutting Edge--5 5/8"
    Blade Width--3/4"
    Thickness at Ricasso--3/16"
    Price--$OLD shipped conus
    If you want a sheath with it, I can make one.

    If there are any questions, or more pictures are needed, feel free to let me know. Thanks for looking.

    -Mike
