Engraved by Barry Lee Hands - " The Chelsea Boot Dagger' - from Solvang, by SRJohnson

The Chelsea Boot Dagger from SR Johnson
Engraved by Barry Lee Hands

This nine inch loveless style dagger features a four and three quarter inch blade of ATS- 34 and exhibition grade white pearl handles.

Elaborately decorated in raised fully sculpted and shaded 24k gold in Barry?s Nouveau leaf pattern, all new for 2014.

Set with twenty white diamonds on the guard and pommel, the ornamental design begins at the pommel with a swirl of fully sculpted entwined 24k gold, white diamonds and steel, with stippled and inked background, surrounded by wide, 24k gold borders, bursting out and continuing forward onto the white pearl utilizing Barry?s original ?gilded pearl? technique.

The design runs forward through the front guard culminating in a flourish of gold , diamonds, and steel.

The 59 rockwell hardened blade is very unusual in its abundance of 24k gold inlay and overlay, on the grind and the ricasso, a very difficult process to accomplish on hardened steel.

The blade is also set with 26 VS, F+ brilliant cut white diamonds.

The most elaborately ornamented dagger yet by SR Johnson and Barry Lee Hands.

All the best,
Barry Lee Hands
