Description: Serpentine is a traditional Armenian designed knife made by Garri before he fled from Russia. The carbon steel blade has two narrow and one wide fuller on each side and features a false edge on the top. This piece has a wide hilt and scabbard creating a large canvas for Garri's meticulous chasing. Garri's mastery of hand chiseling earned him recognition as National Master Artist of the Soviet Union in 1985. The detail work on the handle and sheath are meticulously created by hand-chasing with small chisels.
