Description: Jot Singh Khalsa studied art, jewelry making and metalsmithing at the State University of New York at New Paltz, where he learned to work with fine metals to create beautiful pieces of wearable art. Soon after, he attended the inaugural New York City knife show - and was so impressed by what he saw that he was inspired to diversify his metalworking skills and begin creating edged art. Jot has now been making knives, swords and kirpans (a sword or dagger carried by many Sikhs) full-time since 1978.
This piece by Jot is a stunning knife of high contrasts. The beautiful simplicity of the dagger's lines are complemented by the maker's choice of materials - Jot forged the high contrast damascus blade by combining carbon steel with pure nickel. This pattern is perfectly set off by the simple, symmetrical leaf blade and dagger grind.
A satin finished stainless steel guard meets a twisted sterling silver spacer, accenting the simplicity of the knife's design perfectly. The stacked wood handle is masterfully shaped, filling the palm and balanced so the knife feels effortless in the hand. The swirls and ripples of the wood grain match the damascus blade well.
This knife has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for since it was first made in 1994. It is in new condition.
