Daggers have been around since early history within almost all cultures and were most commonly used to attack enemies in close encounters or for hunting. Not only is a dagger a representation of betrayal, loss and danger but it is also seen as a symbol of protection.
This dagger was hand carved by me in wax, a mould was taken of the original and then cast in sterling silver. This lost wax casting method is as old as humans have been working with metal. The dagger was oxidised and hand polished and hung on a 8mm bail ring
The dagger measures 45mm x 19mm including the bail ring. It weighs a nice and solid 5.71 grams.
This pendant does not come with a chain, but different lengths and weights chains are available in the shop.
You pendant will come wrapped in tissue in a small cotton draw string bag, which is also great for storing the piece when not in use.
