Description: This spectacular piece was completed by Garri while he was living in Russia. He was one of the few artists that was granted permission to use the military-grade blades forged by the artists in Tula. Tula has long been known as one of the major metalworking centers of Russia. The blade has two strong fullers on each side and a false edge in the front. As is traditional, the blade is somewhat simple by western standards. Garri's work on the handle and guard easily make it clear why Garri was honored as a National Master Artist of the Soviet Union in 1982. The handle and guard are created through casting and meticulous hand-chiseling. The overall length with the sheath on is 20 1/2 inch. Garri has created a large canvas and used it to its best advantage. A stylized lion's head has been carved on the pommel and a stylized snakehead has been carved on the tip of the sheath.
