    patience...pays off!

    Four or five years ago I bought a nice scrimshawed and engraved dagger made by Ed Kalfayan, a Michigan Knifemaker. Sadly Ed's no longer with us but his knives live on. I've been patiently watching another of his knives on the Collectors Firearms Website until it dropped in price to make it worthwhile to buy. (I did the same thing with the engraved knife - as they both eventually dropped from $1,200 to $600 each!) So here's the newest, a Persian Style Dagger with a carved and silver wire wrapped mammoth ivory handle and 9-1/2" blade. Also a few photos of the other knife.

    Nice knives! I especially like the "Viking" dagger.
