Not a copy of any particular dagger, but more just a generic composite. Blade of 01 steel, 7" x 1" x 5/32" with a through tang. Blade tapers in thickness from 5/32" to about 3/32" nearing the point. Grip is Cocabola with a brass ferrule and steel butt cap. Butt cap is threaded on the tang, and topped with a threaded brass ball. Guard is steel with hand cut file decoration. Hope you enjoy a look. A brass collared sheath is in progress.

That's pretty sharp Wick (pun intended :). In all seriousness, another fabulous looking blade. I have one of your trade knives and love it.
