Description: This sizable dagger was created by Patrick Donovan. This knife has been in a private collection since it was made in 1989 and is in new condition. By all appearances it could have been made yesterday.
Mammoth ivory forms the scales, which are secured by six stainless steel pins. The scales are polished to a luster and have a very light, gradual change in coloration from edge to edge. Each bolster has been beautifully engraved forming an intricate bouquet of flowers, "SHERWOOD-ENGRAVED" adorns one side of the hilt, indicating work by George Sherwood, a engraver who worked with many knife companies and has also since passed away. There is subtle filework where the bolsters meet the hilt. The blade is hand satin finished. The flat of the blade is marked with Donovan's mark, Patrick, set in cursive, his traditional signature.
A rare opportunity for an impressive dagger.
