Here's a little (er...make that GIANT) Damascus Dagger.

The handle is a nice piece of Blue Stabilized Burl (Box Elder I think) with Copper and Brass trim pieces and a Damascus cross guard, and stainless tactical lanyard butt cap.  The fore end of the handle is Antique Ivory Micarta.

Overall length of the piece is 14 1/2 "!!!  

I'll let the photos speak for themselves. (Sorry about the large photo sizes)

Currently working on a scabbard of Curly Walnut and Ebony. It should be pretty sweet.

And FMan...any of my pieces can be yours!  Cool 

This one is offered at about $350 with the scabbard. Given the ubber materials and "totally by hand tools" production techniques, the price is very reasonable!

Shocked 

By Crom, that's one of the finest-lookin' blades I've ever seen! A dagger, you say, but big enough to be a short sword for a hobbit, no question. Nice work, boss!

I love the blade form...a leaf. It's ancient, yet modern. And the handle is right for a barehanded or gloved grip! And its being pointy at both ends...good for bonus points! lol

Really! like the shape of that Damascus blade on that one sir, the grip is a bit big for my small paws but, I'm sure you didn't make it for me.  Wink

I think it's pretty basic...1095 and a high nickel steel?

That price is more than reasonable, methinks instead of a PAD in the future, I need a KAD piece Smile

Cartaphilus...I made the handle to be about the same as a nice ax handle. Should be good for most anyone.
