DAGGER #1

This knife has a lot of first time things for me such as my first dagger, the longest blade I’ve made to date (I am currently working on a longer blade) first damascus D-Guard, first blade collar and first time I’ve done a fluted handle with wire inlay. The 13″ blade on this dagger is forged from 1080 and
15n20 in “W” Ladder Pattern Damascus. The overall length is 18 3/4″ long. The handle is interior mammoth ivory, the twisted wire inlay in the handle and the collar on the ricasso are argentium silver. There are salt-blued spacers at the front and back of the handle that have coined and anodized titanium liners around them.

I wanted to make a unique dagger and what started this D-Guard concept was seeing the recent Cut-N-Shoot D-Guard Dagger made by Ron Newton. I was also greatly influenced by 1700s-1800s English and French Court Swords in how I’ve made a large round pommel that the D-Guard dives into.

I would like to give special thanks to Ron Newton for all the great information he gave me.
