The sinuous Dragontooth Fighting Dagger has a swept blade of skillfully wrought Damascus steel and the melding of two different steels into a single blade is self-evident in its vibrant, ripple-like patterning seen throughout the blade. Like a fingerprint, each one is slightly different in its finished design. The blade has a thick spine for durability and the blade form tapers toward its main cutting portion to minimize drag when cutting – the side geometry of the blade extends nearly to the tip and this greatly aids in reinforcing the tip for a thrust.
The elegantly formed grip is fashioned from bone-like hardened resin and stacked layers of carefully crafted filework brass to create a composite grip which was polished smooth and flush for a fine finish. For a tough hilt construction the tang extends through the grip which is covered with a final pommel cap to complete the grip. Included with the dagger is a sheath of tough and thick leather with a stitched construction and a brass-buttoned retaining strap.
