Second String by CouteliersduValBlanc Second String by CouteliersduValBlanc
So named for another myriad of reasons, its the second made in our degressive grind profiles returning to the traditional archers maxim: One must always have more than on string to his bow. It's also a cue to our background as classical violinists, because of the curly maple on the handle (also named fiddleback maple because of its ample use in violin making). Being our first dagger it of course, a two edge blade.

It is in our up to now usual 01 steel, we'll be experimenting with others soon though. The handle is curly maple, the standard rivets are sterling silver, and the composite rivet is sterling silver and indian rosewood. The blade come close to 6 inches of slim and stabby goodness.

Votre couteau est très élégant. Parfaitement le genre d'objet à exposer mais qui reste toujours utile. :aww:

I want to throw this. In a respectful way. It seems as though it would feel nice and balanced in my hand.

The grind on this blade is really neat. Was it media blasted afterwards?

Thanks! Wasn't media blasted, we just left it at a fairly low grit finish for a satin rather than polished finish.

Wow! Thanks for the feature. And thanks for that little compilation of work as well, there are some really interesting pieces in there that I hadn't stumbled upon here on DA. Good digging job.
