    So, whose daughter graduates from college and asks for a presentation dagger as a graduation gift?
    Well, mine did. It is hard to figure how my children like knives.

    Dagger grinds are difficult, to put it mildly. This one has issues, but it was hammered, hand ground without a jig, hand polished, et al, all by dad.
    The guard and pommel pieces are mokume gane, the steel is 1084 with a cold blued finish, and the handles are bone.
