The Amber scales are full of warmth and beauty. This Dagger has been engraved by Richard S. Wright and has 8 Citrines set in it. The spine has been masterfully carved with a vine and flower motif and titanium liners have been file worked. The blade and frame are both forged to shape Jerry Rados Damascus.
