Description: Swedish knifemakers, Roger Bergh and Anders Hogstrom, create works of art that have a meticulous fit and finish that is rarely found on other knives. When they decided to collaborate on this dagger, the results were predictably amazing. This is the only dagger made to date by Bergh and Hogstrom.
The blade, which measures approximately 11 1/2 inches was forged to shape then ground by Roger. The complex shape was inspired by Art Nouveau. The central grind is hollowed. The offset ricasso has been carved.
The handle is formed from ancient blue toned walrus ivory with antiqued and textured sterling silver fittings. The antiqued silver nicely compliments the blue tones in the fossil ivory. Accompanied by a hand formed and sewn leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout.
