I based on XV century flemish ballock dagger (dolch1450) All is 100% hand made. Blade is hand forged spring steel. Guard and pommel - steel. For grip, I use mahogany.
What do you think about this piece?

Best Regards

Jan Chodkiewicz

I think it is awesome. I like the blade, I like the grip, I like the scabbard. I wish it was mine!
