DescriptionMeteorite & Dinosaur Bone Dagger
Gibeon Blade, Iron, fine octahderite
Gibeon, Great Nama Land, Namibia
Dinosaur Bone Handle, Jurassic
This exceptional dagger has been created from two fascinating elements: Gibeon Meteorite and "Gem" Dinosaur Bone. Daggers are one of the oldest styles of knives, which is apropos considering the material used to fashion this piece. The blade features the crisscross Widmanstätten pattern characteristic of the Gibeon octahedrite from Great Nama Land in Namibia, and the handle is made out of exceptional "Gem" Dinosaur Bone from the Morrison Formation, dating to the Jurassic, out of Utah. This double-edged blade has symmetrical double hollow grinds and measures 4.33 inches (11 cm) from tip to bolster. The Dinosaur Bone handle is also symmetrical with a visible partial-tang, triangular shaped butt and measures 5.5 inches (14 cm). The incredible dagger is in great condition and was handmade with obvious skill and great care by St. Louis knife maker Randy Larsen.
Overall Measurements: 9.57 x 0.98 x 0.55 inches (24.30 x 2.50 x 1.40 cm)
