Description: This dramatic Dagger clearly shows the influence of Jim Luman, Mike Ball's teacher in forging. The mosaic Damascus blade is a complex pattern created through a four way radial. The foreground pattern is created from L6 and 105 carbon steels set on a 1084 background. The result is excellent! The pommel and quillion are both forged from 80 layer Damascus steel. Hand fluted moose antler is surrounded by dyed and stabilized box elder for a particularly dramatic finish. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
