Carbon steel, carnelian, synthetic ivory.

What Griffin (or gyphon!) could stand up to this? Trolls and goblins other than the helpful sort also best beware.

Damn my lady! You are quite the metal smith! This blade is over the top!

It really depends on the size of your hand. Granted, the thumbguard is not ideal, but I have used it and have never hurt myself. My husband, on the other hand.... Ouch. It'll poke the back of his thumb. It is designed so that the pad of the thumb is placed in the curve. Were I to do this again, I would not make it so extreme. So, you really are quite right: It is not a practical piece.

Like most fantasy knives its beautiful, but this knofe would be a horror to use. the spike on top of the blade will stab you between the thumb and your pointer finger! And take the hooks on the back and reversethe one on bottom for the reverse cut... like I said she's beeautiful, but too dangerous for the user.... nice cut outs!

Is this a real, functional, working knife, or just for show? Either way, I must show it to my dad--he'd love it so much!!!

Art at its best.
