    Hello forum. Another dagger from me. The difference here is that I added this concave line on the guard. The challenge with it was that I had to dig slots for the shoulders of the blade into the guard. I think the extra effort was worth it .


    Steel - N690Co 59-60 HRC.
    OAL - 271 mm (~10.7").
    Blade - 146Х29Х5.3mm (~5.7x1.1x0.2") flat grind with secondary bevels.
    Blade finish - polish after 800 grit.
    Handle - stabilized alder burl , african blackwood and aged bronze.
    Leather sheath.
    Weight with/without sheath 208/286 grams.
