Description: Any one of the parts of this knife would be incredible on its own, but taken as a whole, this knife is utterly fantastic. The blade is Roger's signature "firecracker" pattern Damascus forge welded to wrought iron for a 5 bar composite blade. Sculpted "fingers" hold the blade to the handle. The guard is textured fossil ivory and the handle is ancient sculpted fossil horse bone. This dagger feels secure in a small hand, but will easily accommodate a larger grasp. It comes with a moose antler display stand.
