The Story of my MS Test Dagger

The Steel
400 layers of 15n20, 400 layers of 1095

Forged into twisted W's, then twisted 40 times to make the final billet

The number 40 symbolizes hardship, judgement and testing

This dagger represents my greatest test as a bladesmith so far

The Trinity
Three Damascus acorns

Three silver wires in each twisted inlaid strand

Three textures - Parkerized steel, peened bronze, and Damascus

The balance of three strengthens the one

Blade Show - Table 13P. Hope to see you in Atlanta.
