Dellana Custom Knife 1st "Meltdown" Lockback Dagger with Sole Authorship Composite Damascus. This is the first ever Lockback "Meltdown" Dagger that Dellana made. Dellana was a protege of the late Master Jim Schmidt.

Dellana has made the "Meltdown" Gold fabrication famous. It has become Dellana's signature technique and would make for an excellent addition to any serious collection.

The knife features sole authorship Composite Damascus with Sole Authorship Damascus with "Stars" Selectively Etched on to the W-2 Composite Wedge. "Dellana Dots" 14 Kt Gold dots have been hand set into the blade by Dellana. She has also hand set 14 Kt Gold into the Presentation Grade Mother of Pearl scales and along the spine of the knife. Mother of Pearl Shell of this size and quality is nearly impossible to acquire today.

All of the Gold is 14Kt and has been hand fabricated by Dellana. This exquisite sole authorship knife is the epitome of a custom art knife and is one of the many reasons why Dellana was inducted into the AKI "Art Knife Invitational"
