A Presentation Dagger Fit for a Commanding Officer

There are knives and then there are presentation daggers that would look right at home in a general’s belt sheath, sash or shoulder sling. Larry Lunn’s interpretation of a Scottish officer’s dirk showcases a carved-ebony handle in a Scottish modified-knotwork-style motif, an engraved guard, silver dollar pommel (literally) and a foot-long damascus blade. It stands up, salutes and qualifies itself, volunteering actually, as an editor’s favorite from theĀ Knives 2013 book.
