    Wow, something I'd want in my collection of blades!

    Can you retake the first pic and third pics (or almost all of them) so that they are sharp and not blurry? This is a really neat piece, would like to see better pics, thx.

    lol Thanks, I think the wee dagger could be ebony, Its wood, black and hard as hell. The Dirk is also wood but has been colored in some way. There is a little wear to the back side and a lighter wood is showing through. they used rosewood, and african blackwood alot, ive seen sgains with oak and horn handles as well.
