A SHORT HISTORY AND TIME LINE ON THE CREATION OF ONE OF THE LARGEST UNDERTAKINGS IN THE CUSTOM ART KNIFE ARENA.
Certainly one of the most beautiful handcrafted set of daggers ever made. Commissioned by a private knife collector in the 1980s this set of four sat quietly for his viewing only. A collaboration of 4 top knife makers were gathered to make this set. Each maker to make his own knife, and all the blades carved to hold the images you see. This is the first time that they have ever been photographed as a complete set. Not even Gary Blanchard who carved all 4 has never seen them all together.
Although viewed they were listed as not for sale. At this time they are still listed not for sale, but ownership has been transferred to my partner in knives (Dave Nittinger) and myself.
We hope to gather information and share it with the world, as we believe they will be listed as one of the all time beautiful works of art in the handmade knife arena. Enjoy…The beauty of the Kachina daggers.
