A Dagger Named Patience
One of my good friends and avid collector claimed this knife as his own almost 2 1/2 years ago. It has been one of those knives where I would run into a problem , let the knife sit while the back of the brain percolated, sometimes very slowly, then come to a solution and take another step forward. And he patiently waited for the completed dagger. It is finally finished.
The dagger is 15 inches long. The blade steel is Delbert Ealy ladder pattern damascus. The guard, spacer and pommel nut are the same damascus. The fluted handle is Elforyn, a man made ivory out of Denmark. Slightly softer than real ivory but very close in look and feel. The wire is twisted silver. It is fully double edged.
