The shape of the dagger from the Swedish damask steel Damasteel resembles a diamond-shaped Tuareg amulets. Massive rings are attached to the guard, African women decorate themselves with similar ones. The hilt is made of ebony – black wood of tropical trees, golden stripes dotted with geometric patterns lie across it, as if rings and bracelets on the thin arm of an exotic beauty.
The dagger stand made in the art style of the Zlatoust metal engraving deserves special attention. The arched sides of the slotted stand decorated with zoomorphic and geometric ornaments symbolize the scorching sun, from which even the trees also depicted on the stand do not save. Bracelets for brushes and ankles inlaid with bright jewelry stones are also part of the composition, because African women like to decorate themselves with metal rings and bracelets. A decorative element rises above the dagger itself, also representing the sun.
Such an exotic dagger will interest a traveler, a lover of collecting impressions from all over the world, in order to complement his “trophies” with such a work of weapons art. “Africa” can also be an original gift to a person whose horizons and scope of interests extend far beyond the borders of one continent.
