Hey, you like dragons and you like knives. This is the Dragon Fantasy Dagger, which satisfies your desire to do some stabbing with a high fantasy theme.The 8' dragon knife has a handle resembling the head and neck of a great red-eyed dragon, its mouth open ready to spew out fire.
Knives are one of the oldest tools used by humans, and the evolution of knives from those pieces of chipped stone to what we have today was a long and slow progress. The last few hundred years has seen the rise of Carbon Steel knives slowly be replaced with more modern alloys like the signature German X50 CrMoV15 that has been the industry standard for almost 40 years. Then technology caught up to the knife world and the last 15 years has been a whirlwind of better and better powdered steels and tools steels that have completely changed our perception of what a knife can do.
I honestly believe that Dragon knives have started a new era of knives. For the first time we have a razor sharp, Japanese made knife that can handle the toughest kitchen tasks that for years were only done by the thicker edged German knives.
Dragon knives are constructed of Nitrogen-Enriched American steel (CTS-BD1N), hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 63. This extremely robust one-piece construction features extreme sharpness and edge retention. The handle is made of FDA approved resin and linen Canvas Micarta with three stainless steel rivets. The canvas material is dyed and brilliantly finished to last for decades. The end-cap of the handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which provides outstanding stability and balance.
The difference between the black & red handled knives is the thickness of the steel and the profile of the blade.
You will be amazed by how these Dragon Knives perform!
