"Dagger Dan" Heinecke Bone-Hilted Dagger

purchased in 2007

This was my third "Dagger Dan" piece. Dan Heinecke is primarily a knife and dagger maker who, as far as I know, only sells his finely crafted wares through his booth at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. His work has become well respected amongst the patrons at this renfest.

The edge is quite sharp, with a mirror-polished finish. Dan casts the brass fittings directly onto the tang and does differential tempering. The grip on this piece is bone, and the ricasso allows for a finger to be placed forward of the guard for additional control and strength.

The marks on the white bone are not scratches or dirt. It's the natural coloration/grain of the bone, which is polished to a smooth surface.

Overall Length 16 inches  (40.64 cm)
Blade Length 9 ½ inches  (24.13 cm)
Hilt Length 6 ½ inches  (16.51 cm)
