Turkish dagger with a straight blade sharpened on both sides is one of the most popular and bought types of souvenir cold steel. The “combat” version of the dagger allows stabbing the enemy. It is often used in hand-to-hand combat, due to its relatively small size.
The elongated hily of the “Janissary” dagger is decorated with carvings, engraving and gilded hemisphere nails. It is made of metal and amaranth wood. Amaranth wood is considered quite rare. Masters appreciate it for an exclusive pattern, tint, and durability. Products from this unusual natural material do not swell, do not dry out and do not crack over time.
Engravers generously painted the scabbard of the souvenir dagger with floral ornaments with gilded engraving.
Each gift dagger of the masters of Zlatoust is a vivid example of handmade and inspired collective creativity. Weapon makers, artists and engravers worthily keep and develop the Zlatoust traditions of metal decoration. When creating each item, they combine talent, creativity and a high level of performance.
