This creative and impressive Mughal dagger was made by Ron Frazier (1940-2011) who endeavored to make knives in a distinctly pre-modern style and manner which clearly shows in his knives. Ron won a number of awards for his knife making over the years including Best in Show and Best Art Knife at the Blade show (the Superbowl) for knife makers). This particular knife was featured in his knife making catalogue and is in great shape and also comes complete with a fitted wood display/ storage box. Whether fancy or simple, Ron Frazier was an exceptional craftsman and designer which clearly shows in this knife.
