Thanks to all for kind words.
I sent link to this subject to my friend. He transfers all big words of gratitude.
As it sent some additional photos of process of creation of daggers - for your pleasure.
I asked it concerning possibility of sale of its work (wood dagger).
My friend answered that he does it as a hobby, instead of for sale, he doesn't want that this hobby would turn into work.
WOW, I agree with everyone else.
Let your friend know he has amazing wood working skills. I had to keep going back to the original photo to see the grain in the wood. That is fantastic!!!!!!
I wish he'd show a picture of carving the motto on the blade. It's so well done I thought it was etched or a machine copy. The Russians are master carvers since time imemorial and this guy is with the best of them. Thanks Vlad for sharing
Thank for showing
Great handwork and very detailed.
Lovely to see the dagger "grow" from a piece of wood into a dagger!
A WIP would be great.
I love the typically seen split we see sometimes..on the scabbard carrying ring.
