    Hello Everyone.
    I have this dagger on sale. It is a full integral double guard W pattern damascus dagger.
    I made this piece for the MAC2019 (is like the blade show in Buenos Aires) and made me win the prize to "knifemaker revelation 2019".
    It was the first time that i make a dagger, the first time that i make fullers, first time i make a doble integral guard, first time i make domed pins, fist time i make a sheath with a damascus lock or hook... I think, the final result is more than acceptable, but it has some details that i can't pass up. In the tips of the guard, the damascus has some cold shuts (i don't know if it is the right way to say it), it is unperceptible, but i should be honest. Around the sheath's damascus lock, the leather suffer a little bit the heat of a welding i did to fix the lock to the sheath, presenting a tiny crack. You almost need a magnifying glass to see it, but again, i must say it. And the last thing is, as i made the domed pins for the first time, they were not perfect. All this you can check it in the pictures and the instagram videos that i leave you below.
    The design of the dagger wasn't planed, it came up in the forging process, so maybe there are some things I would have liked to do different. Perhaps i am to much perfectionist.

    Thank you very much!
    I know that i'm not a well known bladesmith, but this dagger took me a lot of working hours. I prefer not to sell it if i have to drop the price.

    Best regards.
