    Here are a couple of my personal favorites and two of the ‘fancier’ knives I own.

    They are both masterfully hand crafted by the inimitable Richard S. Wright with Turkish-Twist Damascus forged by none other than Jerry Rados.

    Pictures are worth a thousand words’ as is said so here are a few...Ancient Walrus Ivory, Antique Shell, engraved, carved, ano’d, set with precious stones, and both with Richard’s ambi-bolster release.

    These are large folders with a blade length of 5 3/4” on the dagger and 5 1/2” on the Persian.

    The piece with the Lost Wax Cast Celtic-style bolsters has an Ancient Ivory blade-stop and the Persian piece has a stop of 18K gold.

    Both stunning but the dagger is my favorite. Love the Rados Damascus, I had several knives built with it over the years.
