Gary Williams and Gil Rudolph took turns scrimshawing both sides of the handle and sheath of a Dennis Friedly damascus dagger. The Native American theme done up in blacks, greys, browns, gold, blues and reds is one of the Editor’s Favorites from the Knives 2013 book. The scrimshaw is realistic, regal and wild all at once. Stunning stuff, and the dagger benefits from it.
A work of art in itself, Friedly outfitted the dagger in a damascus blade, guard, ferrule and pommel, raised gold decorations, and an ivory handle and sheath. The photo is by Eric Eggly, PointSeven Studios.
