Mystical Narwhal tusk graces the handle of this large dagger. The tusk has only been lightly polished so as to leave the natural wear marks in it. A forged to shape guard that was sculpted to reveal the layers of Damascus within makes for an impressive "blade" catcher, that is structurally solid and visually
stunning. The "leaves" on it have colorful ammonite inset into gold. Sculpted 14 ct gold rings compliment the transition between the Narwhal and Damascus and add a subtle brilliance. The pommel was shaped to compliment the overall flow of the design. Not stopping at a simple finish to the rear of it, it features a brilliant ammonite stone in a spectacular color of blues and purples inset into gold. The business end of the dagger is a symmetrical ground M. Norris Stainless Ladder Damascus blade. The dagger can be fully disassembled, by removing the pommel as seen in the accompanying images. It is finished as nicely inside, as outside.
