?The Ultimate SRJ Dagger? Engraved by Barry Lee Hands

The S. R Johnson Loveless style Dagger
Engraved by
Barry Lee Hands
This stunning Loveless style dagger features three color virgin gold inlays on the 416 stainless guard in antique 23k yellow, 18k green and 22k rose gold, executed with finely shaded flush inlay on a relieved and fine stippled 416 stainless background, surrounded by 24k gold flush line borders.
The Exhibition Grade Australian Silverlip Pearl scales, are inlaid with Barry?s original ?Gilded Pearl? technique.
This over the top example of gilded pearl featuring nineteen 24k gold leaves with stems on each side has more than twice the number of leaves and mass of 24k Gold than any other gilded pearl job ever done before.
The 300 series stainless pins securing the scales are set with four brilliant cut diamonds hand selected by the engraver at Gassan?s in Amsterdam.
The perfectly ground Dagger blade, of ATS 34, is decorated with Barry?s unique ?Burnished Gold? technique, in green, red and yellow gold.
The quillons are inlaid with raised, fully sculpted 24k Gold leaves on the concave surface facing the scales.
The most ornately luxurious and highly decorated Loveless style dagger ever created.
