    This are two daggers I've been making the last months for a customer that ordered two similar pieces for him and a friend.

    This is the first one.

    Once I finished, I realized that what looked like a visual effect causing a small angle on the handle (not continuing the line of the blade) wasn't just a problem of perspective - the curved guard might make it look that way- but a real angle, so I'll have to make the handle on this one again, as I don't want to sell a piece that I know it isn't 100% right.

    I don't really know what caused this as I presented the pieces together a dozen times before ensambling them for good, but it doesn't really matter I guess...


    Some pictures of the process of making the second one.

    And the second one almost finished (it needs a final polishing)

    Ok, I finished both of them :)

    I made a patina on one sheath to make it look old, and I did the same treatment that you can see on the ricasso area on one of the blades, not intirely, but in the center part. I'll post a pic of that tomorrow

    Regards,

    Ruben

    They really are a nice pair you made Ruben. I like the straight edge one a lot. :gogdog: Thanks for showing the steps involved, that adds a ton to the overall of it.
